I failed to post the ingredients I made my hair cream at like 1am with:
By homemade hair butter smooths my hair no matter what I did in my wash.
My ends curly and smooth, no frizz unless I heavily separate my hair, and no crunchy or dry feeling.
I used to think I HAD to have a curl defining cream to go with it but yesterday I braided my hair with a leave in and avocado oil + my butter and my hair is deFINEd.
the products that work best on your hair sometimes depends on your ‘hair type’ like if you have looser (aka type 3) curls, or tighter (type 4) coils.
But the products that i would recommend are:
Shea moisture coconut and hibiscus line- these products are good for curly hair, the shampoo isn’t harsh so you don’t get that horrible dried out feeling that sometimes comes after shampooing.
Shea butter (raw): this stuff is amazing. I’m not sure about type 3 hair (because it’s quite oily and thick) but i’ve tried it and although the smell isn’t very nice, you can mix in some essential oils of your choice.
kinky curly products: i’m yet to try this brand but a lot of people love their products and reviews are mostly positive. I really wanna try the knot today.
Mixed chicks: the brand may be geared towards ‘mixed chicks’ but it definitely is not exclusively for mixed people. The products are kind of expensive but people of all curly hair types seem to like them.
eco styler gel: this is popular in the natural hair community. some people are not very big fans of gel; but others find it useful for laying down edges, etc.
those are all i can think of atm; hope this helped :)
