Dry hair needs real nourishment and moisture. Here’s a simple DIY Moisturizer you can try to restore your hair’s moisture and shine.
Irrespective of your hair type, you would need to moisturize it on a regular basis. Luckily, it doesn’t have to cost you a fortune, since you can whip out a good moisturizer in your kitchen. You will have most of the ingredients needed for the recipe, if not all. So, want to look at what we need?
Shea Butter – 1 Cup
Argan Oil – 1 Tbsp.
Aloe Vera Gel – ½ Cup
Honey – 2 Tsp.

Place a wide pan in the stove with an inch of water and place the Shea Butter into it, after putting in a small bowl.
When the Shea Butter begins to melt, remove it from heat. You don’t have to wait till it fully melted, just wait till it is soft enough to whip.

As you whip, add Grapeseed Oil and Honey and keep whipping.
Add the Aloe Vera Gel and Argan Oil slowly and keep whipping on low.

You can apply this right after drying your hair, or whenever you need a helping of moisture or hydration for your hair.
Tips to Tweak the Recipe
You can substitute Shea Butter with Cocoa Butter if you want something richer. I used Shea Butter because it is fairly lighter and suits everyone.
You can use Sweet Almond Oil or Jojoba Oil instead of Grapeseed Oil, if you can’t get it or find it difficult to acquire where you live.
Honey is optional and can be skipped if you don’t prefer using it on your hair.
I use Lavender Essential Oil because it has loads of hair benefits and also has healing and soothing properties, so ideal if you have damaged hair. However, you can use any hair beneficial essential oil that you like including Basil, Clary Sage, Chamomile, Peppermint, etc.
If you find this recipe as rich for your hair – happens if you have thin hair, or if you already have oily hair, reduce Shea Butter and add more of Argan, Jojoba or Sweet Almond Oil.
