Moisturizing Spray: Keep them curls coming!

One of the biggest challenge for naturally curly women is maintaining your curls/curl definition throughout the week. I have had a challenge doing this myself. I have found a method that works best for me. I hope it ends up working well for you aswell.

1) I like to do the green house effect at night: Oil your hair, leave your curls out, pull them up to the top of your head, place on a shower cap/satin scarf/satin cap and go to sleep. (You can braid it at night but I rather leave my curls out).This helps to lock in moisture and keep your curls hydrated throughout the night into the following morning.
2) When I wake up in the morning, I fluff out my curls and shape my hair back down.
3) Then I use my handy dandy moisturizer spray that I have absolutely fallen in love with!


You will need:
1) Shea Moisture's Curl Enhancing Smoothie-butter gives it a creamy texture (decided to use this because it didn't work well on my hair by itself; so didn't want to waste)
2)100% Pure Castor Oil or any Essential Oil-conditioner  and shine
3) Spray Bottle- for easy application
Pour water less than half of bottle. 

Pour in oil to fill up most of the rest of the bottle.

Take spoon and scoop out about a tblsp and place in bottle.

Shake to mix!
The end result should be a creamy/oily texture. When you spray it on your hands you should feel the consistency of the oil. This will keep your hair hydrates but at the same time moisturized and conditioned!
And that's how I maintain my curls throughout the day and the whole week!
