The Best Curl Cream You Can Make At Home

Show Some Love!

If you have naturally curly hair, then you know a good curl cream is essential. 1 of my favorite product to use on my hair is the shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie. However, I came up with a DIY curl cream recipe that does the same thing to my hair as my favorite product.

This natural curl cream is really easy to make and gives my curls just the right amount of moisture and a beautiful bounce.

I havd been on the hunt for the best cream for my curls for years. I have such a hard time with my 3c hair.

Finding things that will give it enough moisture is the biggest challenge. This diy curl defining cream was perfect.

Lots of curling creams will work for a little while. Then it’s like someone took away an ingredient in that particular cream. And it stops giving my hair the luster and moister it needs.

Homemade Curl Cream

My hair needs a lot of moisture, but I don’t want to have to use a ton of different products to achieve that.

I can’t stand for my hair to be weighed down with heavy greases and oils. Or even worse is having to feel the stuff on my scalp.

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 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 homemade curly cream you will find anywhere!

Firstly, you will need a immersion blender to mix it 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.

How Do I Make My Own Curling Cream?

You to make your own curling cream you will need:

  • aloe vera juice or aloe Vera gel
  • coconut oil
  • shea butter
  • olive oil
  • beeswax

After that, mix everything together with your immersion blender and store in a container with a lid.

See it’s uper simple to make. I have even tried this curl defining cream on my little one’s hair, and her hair is more like a 4b type curl pattern, 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.

One of the best things about this curl defining cream is that it can be used on wet hair , damp or even air dry hair.

To define my curls a lil bit on day 2, I take a spray bottle and dampen it a bit, then I 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.

I have even used it as a styling cream when the plan is to wear a ponytail.

Easy DIY Curly Cream

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 too. You can also use other oils, such as avocado oil, flaxseed oil or argan oil to better fit your needs.

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.
