I have been on this natural hair journey for a little over a year now and have discovered amazing hair natural DIY treatments, natural hair products and amazing people with so much knowledge on curls to pass on to other curlies and now I’m doing the same to help you get more Curlfident!
HENNA: it’s an herb that comes from India and we all know that they have hair to die for! The benefits of this herb are heaven for the hair. Henna is a conditioner for the hair, adds shine, adds volume, it adds natural acid-alkaline balance on your scalp and cleanses it of dirt without altering the natural balance unlike chemical-based products. It also promotes hair growth, reduces hair fall, dandruff and other scalp problems. You can even use it for colouring your hair as it does not have any side effects and gives a deep colour with a reddish tinge.
SHIKAKAI: This is a small shrub like tree which grows in India for promoting hair growth, prevents dandruff, and it strengthens the hair from its roots.
What’s wonderful is that name name “SHIKAKAI” was given to this herb because all these benefits for the hair and the name means ” fruit for the hair” in India.
BRAHMI: This is also an Indian herb and used both in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. This herb helps with Strengthening the roots of your hair, makes the hair denser, long, shiny, and dark toned, it controls dandruff, reduces premature greying, reduces the amount of hair loss and it’s the perfect herb to add to the natural hair regimen of someone who has chronic hair problems.
AMLA: is a natural plant also known as Emblica Officinalis. The dried, powdered fruit has tannins, vitamin C, and is astringent. The benefits to this herb are oh so AMAZING too! This herb adds texture, volume, wave, define your curls, shine to your hair, promotes hair growth, thicker, stronger hair strands!
MORINGA: Is also known as the ” The Miracle Tree” because of how valuable it is from its leaves, pods, flowers, fruits and to the very end of its bark! This plant is packed with over minerals, vitamins and over 90 essential nutrients oh and even better over 40 types of antioxidants! Ok so this AMAZING plant is great for moisturizing the scalp when infused with oils to extract it’s nutrients, fights split ends, reduces hair loss mans makes hair strong!
This plant is for internal and external use and even safe for kids! I will share recipes for every way to use this amazing plant!
COCONUT OIL: This is the mother of hair oils! This oil stimulates hair growth getting deep into its follicles it promotes the scalp health fighting against such problems as insect bites, lice and dandruff. Coconut oil adds luster, shine and softness to the hair. Coconut oil prevents hair breakage and split ends, allowing hair to retain its length.
SHEA BUTTER: Shea butter is rich in vitamins, minerals and other natural properties and this is why I decided to use it in this Mixture. Shea butter’s main components includes linoleic acid, stearic acid and oleic acid along with many others, which are easily and quickly absorbed into our skin and our scalp is skin so of course it is quickly absorbed. It’s also loaded with Vitamin A and E it can repair damaged and split ends as well as it adds moisture to dry, brittle, dull, lifeless hair, it hydrates, softens, conditions and overall beautifies our hair.
Shea butter adds all of these awesome benefits to our hair, without leaving it greasy and heavy. HOWEVER, it’s based on the amount you use. Shea butter restores moisture to hair that has been damaged from chemical hair treatments, blow dryers, straighteners and other hair tools that cause damage to your hair. Most importantly, the only to reap all the benefits of Shea butter you must get the unrefined shea butter not refined.
HAIR CONDITIONER: You can use ANY curl friendly hair conditioner you already use to add this mixture!
Make sure you warm the herbs on the lowest heat but only after you have all herbs in the pot. Once all the herbs are in the pot stir on the lowest heat and add coconut oil then Shea butter until melts then pour the liquid in a jar followed by the conditioner and seal it and let it settle for a few hours or till the next day which is best to let the ingredients and nutrients extract thoroughly. Finally, apply on the hair and leave on for 3 hours or all day while cleaning or beautifying your body. Rinse off add more conditioner to detangle and your hair will be very CURLFIDENT!
