I know the major problem we face with our Nigerian natural or relaxed hair is dryness!

We all want our hair to be soft, well moisturised with the coils/curls all going 'boing boing boing' in our I decided to share an effective DIY recipe (just in case you couldn't BIY) for defining your coils while keeping your hair moisturised.
It also useful for detangling dry hair, moisturising edges while hair is in braids, twists or weave extensions.

It also makes a light skin conditioner for dry skin!
Try it out and thank me later! ;)


1 Cup   (250ml) of distilled water
1/4 Cup (62ml) of aloe vera gel
1 tbs coconut oil
1 tsp honey and/or 1/4 tsp vegetable glycerine

2-3 drops of essential oil of choice.

All measurements are done using standard measuring cups and spoons. These can be gotten in market where baking stuff are sold.

Combine all ingredients in a spray bottle and shake to mix. #shikena !!

Store in a cool dry place preferable refridgerated. This should last you 3-5 days after which you should make a fresh batch o!

How to use (can be used on relaxed/texlaxed hair)

- Apply to ends daily to prevent breakage then to hair as often as it feels dry.

- For children, apply to hair before combing then to ends daily.

- On wash day, apply to damp hair before styling.

- For braid or twist extensions, apply to exposed hair line to prevent breakage and hairloss.

- For coil/curl definition, apply to dry or damp hair starting from the ends and working towards the roots. Style as usual.
