Homemade Coconut Cream
To make this cream at home, you will need some natural ingredients that are easy to get:
1 fresh coconut
1 tablespoon ground oats
1 tablespoon starch
½ cup milk
Put all ingredients, except the starch, in a food processor, and then pass through a sieve. Dilute starch in a little water, bring to a boil and then add the dissolved starch to the mixture. Keep stirring until creamy.
Apply on hair and cover with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Let it stay for 25 minutes and than wash your hair as usual.
Homemade Cream With Olive Oil
Olive oil is excellent for hair, so you can make this cream with 30 grams of the oil, an oil capsule of jasmine and 30 grams of a conditioner, preferably completely natural.
Mix all ingredients well until the cream is made. Put on the hair between shampooing and applying a conditioner. Leave it for twenty minutes and rinse. Brush your hair without using a blow dryer.
Other Home Methods
There are other options that are not creams but they can help you get smoother hair with less frizz.
For example, you can mix coconut milk with lemon juice. Leave the mixture in the refrigerator a couple of hours. Apply on hair for 45 minutes to an hour and then wash with a shampoo.
You can also make a hot oil treatment with coconut oil. You must apply it on the scalp and massage well. Wrap your hair in a hot towel and leave it for a while, and then wash normally.
You can also add to milk a few tablespoons of honey and a few strawberries, leave it on the hair for two hours and notice big difference.
