I’m not a big fan of gels, puddings and curling custards. For some reason, they never seem to keep my hair moisturized for more than two days and since I wear twists for up to two weeks, they didn’t cut it for me. I needed something to keep my hair moisturized for at least a week.
Before now, I’ve tried different variations. From twisting with Eco Styler Gel to African Naturalistas Twist and Curl Pudding. For some reasons they never seem to satisfy me. So, I went back to twisting using my LOC method of moisturizing and finishing up with my hair butter which was just a leftover of my body butter.
Recently, I tweaked my recipe and I just thought I should share because it gave me fantastic results. I did not need to moisturize for about a week. No jokes.
The first thing you should know is that it’s super similar to my updated body butter recipe which I posted recently. What I did was just to add a single ingredient that changed the entire recipe. This is what it looks like:
- 10g of Shea Butter
- 2g of Cocoa Butter
- 60ml of Glycerine
- 40ml of Coconut Oil
- 15ml of Jamaican Black Castor Oil
- 10ml of Aloe Vera Gel
This recipe is bound to be updated as the weather changes. But at the moment, it is weather-friendly. There’s a lot of Glycerine to trap in moisture from the atmosphere. The addition of fresh aloe vera gel changed the entire recipe. It was my first time and I was a bit skeptical which was why I used a little for a start. The results? Long-lasting moisturized hair. Aloe Vera is also a humectant and when paired with Glycerine, the results are magic. You actually feel the softness. This beats every other product I’ve used so far….hands down!
