As you know by now, I love to use coconut oil in my hair as a treatment, smoother, and moisturizer. Between the no-poo method of cleansing and coconut oil as a conditioner, almost all of my hair needs are met. Sometimes, though, my wild waves are in need of a bit more polish.
A couple months back, HTHG teamed up with Alaffia‘s Shea butter Beautiful Curls line to do a giveaway, and they sent me some samples to try on myself. Now my hair is not as curly as it once was (Pregnancies do weird things to hair!) but the needs of my hair remain the same. My hair needs a lot of moisture in the form of easily absorbable lightweight oil and you can bet I have tried them all.
I started using Beautiful Curls shining oil was really impressed with the way my hair looked and felt with a little Shea butter oil in it. It felt light and healthy and it had a certain sparkly shining-from-within look to it.
So, I got to thinking that maybe
and shea butter
could be the dream team hair polishing combo for dry, coarse, curly, dull, or wavy hair. I experimented and came up with a recipe that made my hair shiny and bouncy and smooth and my hands super soft. Liquid gold, I tell you. For beautiful, natural, sustainable hair……..Ladies and gents, I give to you Liquid gold hair polisher, a lovely DIY hair product.
Liquid Gold Curl Polisher
A teaspoon ofFractionated Coconut Oil is optional, but will add extra shine.
1-3rd shea butter
10 drops of essential oil or blend of oils for scent.
Heat together on low in a pan until it is all melted together. Let it cool, and pour it into a tiny tupperware.
Store it at room temp, and use it any time your hair feels dry or dull or need some smoothing, polishing, and sparkling. Just get a little bit on your finger tips and warm up in the hands, and smooth it on the surface of the hair. Start with just a little bit, and use more as needed. Give it a try, I promise you will love it.
