I have been on the hunt for the best curl cream for like years, I have such a hard time with my 3c hair, finding things that will give it enough moisture. Most curling cream will work for a little while then it’s like someone took away an ingredient in that particular curl cream and it stops giving my hair the luster and moister it needs. My hair needs a lot of moisture, but I don’t want to have to use a ton of products to achieve that. I can’t stand for my hair to be weighed down with heavy greases and oils and even worse is having to feel the stuff on my scalp. I also don’t want to use something with a crap ton of stuff I can’t pronounce. So this is what I did to remedy that..
Best Curl Cream (Make Your Own Curling Cream)
With 5 simple products, I think I have successfully created a curl defining cream that both works to keep my curls defined and also keeps them moisturizes. As my hair dries after applying this curl cream, it isn’t greasy or heavy like tons of other curl creams.
Right now I am patting myself on the back because I have, in my opinion, created the best curl cream you will find anywhere! I ended up getting an immersion blender to mix with, and this is one of the best purchases in a long time. If you get one, make sure to store it someplace other than the kitchen so it isn’t used for food.
Super simple to make, this curling cream only has olive oil, coconut oil, raw shea butter, aloe vera juice and a little beeswax to bring it all together. I have even tried my curl defining cream on my little one’s hair, and her hair is more like 4b, and sucks up any moisture I put in her hair. We were pleasantly surprised at how much more moisturized her hair was even naturally after just a few uses.
Curl Defining Cream
One of the best things about this curl defining cream is that it can be used on wet, damp or even dry hair. Just to freshen up a bit, I like to rub some of this curl defining cream in the palms of my hands and scrunch it into my curls. It brings back some shine and makes it look fresh again.
All of the ingredients have some benefits and are also ok to use from head to toe if you are looking for something more natural to use on your skin. Did you coconut oil is good for repairing aged skin? And shea butter is anti-inflammatory.
This curling cream is light enough to use on all hair types. I think I will be working on more homemade hair products. My hair is just now long enough for great flat twists, but I am having a hard time with keeping them amazing. I have to find the right product combination.
