There are many black hair care recipes that you can find but the key is to experiment and find one that works for your unique black hair type. By using recipes that you can make at home, you are able to save money and a lot of time while having fun. Your hair care goal should be one that is specific to your hair needs such as to increase moisture and softness of your hair.
One of the most important ingredients in black hair care recipes for homemade conditioner is essential oil. Since essential oil is very high in concentration, the key is to dilute them properly before you start using it on your hair.
To make an herbal recipe using essential oils, you can start by filling a four to eight ounce spray bottle with water. Add a few drops of coconut conditioner. To that, you will add a quarter teaspoon of five drops of rosemary essential oil and cinnamon essential oil. Depending on your preference, you can decide to add a few drops of grapefruit, vanilla, sweet orange or lavender oil. Mix the solution together.
Now, you have a recipe for your black hair care. You can spray the mixture on towel-blotted hair or damp hair and allow it to dry. If you have not washed your hair for one whole day, you can use the homemade spray on your dry hair and let it sit for five to ten minutes as the ingredients get absorbed into your hair.
You can even use this homemade recipe as a styling aid. It will help to make your hair soft and easy to comb. For extra moisturizing effect that you need for extremely dry black hair, you can add drops of olive oil, vegetable glycerin or aloe Vera juice to the mixture. To make a black hair care recipe that suits your hair needs specifically, don’t be afraid to experiment more with other different ingredient combinations.
