Have you ever wondered why some people have curly hair while others don’t? Well, I have, and after doing a little Google search, I discovered that it’s because of the twisted hair follicles. So more the twists, curlier will be your hair.

The biggest problem that people with curly hair need to deal with is frizz.

According to Malena Permentier who spoke to Verily,

“It depends on the season and the humidity how curly my hair really is, but when it’s humid, it tends to blow up pretty badly and cause lots of frizz. To fight those flyaways, I’ve been using the Secret Agent Crème by John Frieda. It instantly makes the frizzy bits disappear.

Another anti-frizz trick came to me by accident. I forgot to bring conditioner with me while traveling, so I went without for a few days. I never knew what a difference it would make for my hair. It looks so much healthier, more voluminous, and also less frizzy. The only downside is that brushing out my hair after showering takes a little longer, but I guess that’s worth it when it gives me great hair in return. To keep my locks moisturized without the conditioner, I use Moroccan oil. I really wouldn’t know what to do without it. It makes my hair look shiny and healthy.”

When hit with humidity, the frizz grows out of control and your hair gets the wilder than the Kardashians, and yes, I didn’t mean it in a good way.

Also, curly hair is more prone to split ends. It becomes rough easily, and therefore, breaks at the drop of a hat. People think brushing might help tame the beast, but it does not. So is there no way?

Of course there is. The best way to treat the curls and bring out the oomph factor in them is by conditioning them well. When the tresses are stripped of their natural oils and moisture, they look all frizzy and dull. The homemade leave in conditioner recipes that we will be discussing with you on today’s post will help you control the frizz, soften the hair shafts, and make your hair look lustrous and gorgeous.

Homemade Leave In Conditioner For Curly Hair 

1. Coconut Honey

‘To be or not to be’ if that’s the question, I would always want to be who I am – a lover, who binges on ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ every Christmas; that is, if she decides not to wallow in bed with ‘Wuthering Heights’! The other thing that I absolutely love is weddings! Well, who doesn’t like being in a room full of love stories, eh?!
