I’m going to take part in a Grow Out Problem (which I’ll be giving particulars about in a later post) but my first step is discovering products that actually work for my hair. While I love the Shea Moisture line, it just hasn’t been working as effectively because it used to, so moderately than spend cash attempting out completely different products, I determined I’d attempt my hand at some D.I.Y. merchandise – which brings us to today’s put up, that includes my homemade moisturizing mist for pure hair.
Earlier than making this I used to be using another homemade lace weave cap spray that just combined water and some depart-in conditioner, however I used to be noticing my hair was feeling very limp and shortly getting construct up after wash days. So I determined to strive something new that may hopefully be a bit lighter however nonetheless present moisture and shine to my curls.

Step 2: Comply with with 2 oz of aloe vera juice, one other nice moisturizer that additionally helps prevent hair loss and eliminates that greasy oil feeling you may get from including too many products.
