What do you do then? You go and try to make your moisturizer with ingredients that you know are good for your hair. But where to start if you have relaxed hair? That’s where this article comes in. This article tells you all about DIY moisturizers for relaxed hair. So sit tight, read carefully, and start enjoying your homemade moisturizer for relaxed hair!
DIY moisturizer for relaxed hair – the first one
If you like the smell of rose water and Aloe Vera, you’re going to like the first moisturizer that you can make. It is a simple moisturizer with not too many ingredients that can help your relaxed hair be as moisturized as it can be!
Here’s what you need to make this moisturizer:
You first need distilled water. For the people who don’t know what distilled water is: Distilled water is a specialized type of purified water but you can make it cheap and easy at home. Heat tap water to the point that it turns to vapor. When de condenses back to the water it leaves behind all mineral residue and so this will result in having distilled water.
You need a small bottle of rose water so that you can put a couple of drops in.
It is best to use Aloe Vera Gel. You’ll get the best performance if you use Aloe Vera gel that is food grade.
1/2 vial of biolage cerarepair hydrotherapy
Biolage Cera repair hydrotherapy is an intensive treatment for your hair. This treatment softens and feeds your hair!
You can then seal with either Porange’s mix or Mizani Nighttime H20.
When you use this for about a month or so you’ll see an incredible difference in the health of your hair. It is great to see that DIY moisturizers for relaxed hair can work like a charm.
You can also add a ton of ceramides to the mix if you want to.
The second moisturizer for relaxed hair
Sometimes you can even take a look in your kitchen and see what lays around that you don’t use anymore. If you find something like Mango butter you are golden because you have a great base to start your moisturizer for relaxed hair at home!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1/2 tub of Mango butter. I like to go for the Elasta QP mango butter but I think that any mango butter will do.
The next thing that you need is 1 teaspoon of wheat germ oil. Wheatgerm oil is great as a hair nourisher and maintaining your healthy hair. It is rich in linoleic acid and this is great for your hair.
Then you follow that up with 1/2 teaspoon of Jojoba oil.
And after that, you can use 1/8 vial of the Matrix Biolage Cera Repair. Just as with the first recipe, this is great to use!
Then you follow that up with 1/8 teaspoon of Silk Amino Acid Powder
And then the only thing that rests is to use a tiny amount of rosewater. You use this rosewater to thin out the consistency a bit so that it is better and easier for you to mix.
See? You don’t have to go anywhere or buy a new moisturizer for your relaxed hair if you don’t want to. You can just go DIY’ing and make something great.
This recipe is great for your hair and it smells great too because of the Mango butter!
DIY Moisturizer for relaxed hair number 3
This one is sort of a combination of the first two recipes and it can work wonders for your hair! This recipe also shows that you can experiment when you make a DIY moisturizer. Now you are going to need some new ingredients too, but maybe you have them lying on the counter ;).
To make the following moisturizer you’ll need:
Jojoba oil – We have seen this one before, but it is just great!
Vegetable glycerin – Now this is a new one! Vegetable glycerin is also known as glycerol or glycerine. It is a clear liquid typically made from soybeans, coconut, or palm oils.
Hot 6 oil – Hot 6 oil is made from only natural plant herbs that go into your hair cuticles easily and nourishes your hair to great lengths.
World of Curls – World of curls is not only great for curly hair but also damaged and relaxed hair because it hydrates your skin and your hair greatly. It helps to heal split ends and breakage in your hair.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil – A wide range of benefits derived from using extra virgin olive oil. So is this oil good for preventing dandruff to softening and conditioning your hair.
Mango butter – You van even use some leftover Mango butter if you want to get a greater texture and nice smell.
DIY ultra-moisturizing lotion for relaxed hair
Here’s another great option if you’re looking for DIY moisturizers for your hair. It is a simple recipe that can make your hair look and feel amazing!
This is what you’ll need:
1/2 cup of shea butter
2 Tablespoons of nourishing oil. This can range from using jojoba oil, avocado oil, sweet almond oil, or anything to your liking. You can even use coconut oil if you like that.
That’s it! Below are some things that you can also use but are optional:
10 drops of lavender oil
5 drops of rosemary essential oils
3 drops of carrot seed oil
3 drops of tea tree oil
But what do you do with these ingredients, how do you make this moisturizer for relaxed hair?
Below you’ll find the instructions for the last recipe you just read.
First, you’ll need to melt the shea butter. You can do this by using a double boiler (a glass bowl over a pot filled with 1/4 of water). Use medium to low heat and melt the shea butter. After it has melted you can add some nourishing skin oil if you’d like. After that, you turn off the heat.
Now pour what you’ve made in step one in a bowl and place it in the fridge or freezer. Allow it to cool off and let it return to a solid (do not let it go hard in the freezer though). Depending on where you have put it, it can take between 15 and 20 minutes.
Once you grab it from the fridge and it is slightly firm, you can add some essential oils that we’ve discussed above. Now using the whisk attachment on your mixer you can whip the mixture. You can also use a fork or something if you want to. Within a few seconds, your DIY homemade moisturizer for relaxed hair is done! Scoop it into a jar and store it at room temperature.
