How To Make Leave-In Conditioner For Naturally Curly Hair

Posted on: 29 December 2016

If you have naturally curly hair and want to make up a batch of natural leave-in conditioner to help keep it from frizzing up during the day, then you will be delighted to learn that this is a simple thing to do. When you make your own conditioner at home, you control the ingredients and can ensure that you are using a product that doesn't contain any chemicals. Making your own leave-in conditioner is also frugal and saves money over purchasing a ready-made product from your hair salon.

Here are the instructions you need to make a bottle of leave-in conditioner that you can use to prevent your curly hair from frizzing:

Step 1: Gather the Necessary Supplies

To make a bottle of leave-in conditioner, you need to gather up each of the following supplies:

  • an empty, clean spray bottle
  • a bottle of distilled water
  • a bottle of extra virgin olive oil
  • a bottle of your favorite organic hair conditioner
  • essential oil for scent (optional)
  • a funnel 

If you would like to add a scent to your leave-in conditioner, then you can add a couple of drops of essential oil into the spray bottle. If you prefer to leave it unscented, then you can skip this optional step.

Step 2: Add Olive Oil to the Spray Bottle

To your spray bottle with optional essential oil, add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. Place a funnel into the bottle to prevent spills. If you have very thick hair, then you can add a bit of extra olive oil for additional moisturizing. If you have thin hair, then you should add a bit less oil so your hair will not look oily.

Step 3: Add Hair Conditioner to the Spray Bottle

Into the bottle, add about a cup of your favorite organic hair conditioner. The hair conditioner will help to moisturize your hair and will also help detangle your hair to make it easier to comb. 

Step 4: Add Water to the Spray Bottle and Shake Up Your New Leave-In Conditioner

Finally, the last step in making your new leave-in conditioner is to fill up the rest of the bottle with distilled water. It is important to use distilled water because it doesn't contain any mineral salts that could build up on your hair. Put the top securely on the bottle and shake it up to mix the ingredients before each use.
