To have pretty curls, defined and shiny, bet on natural ingredients. Inexpensive and ultra effective, they boost your textured hair in just minutes. Our best homemade curly hair recipes are here!

Magnificent and sculptural, curly hair requires a lot of maintenance in return to keep all its splendour. Because of their spiral structure, the sebum produced by the scalp has more difficulty in flowing over the lengths. Result: curly hair is often drier and more brittle than straight hair. To preserve their vitality and shine, they must be pampered regularly! Once a week, you will need to apply repair masks. But rest assured, no need to spend astronomical sums on commercial products, some ingredients in the cupboard are just as effective. Honey, coconut oil, yogurt, avocado, egg… Discover our selection of homemade mask recipes to take care of your curly hair.

A moisturizing homemade mask with honey

An essential ingredient in homemade beauty recipes, honey is ideal for nourishing the ends and making the lengths shine. Lemon is, on the other hand, perfect for restoring vitality and luminosity to the hair.
The ingredients needed: 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of honey and ½ organic lemon.
In a bowl, mix the olive oil and honey. Then add the lemon juice and stir again. Apply the mixture to your lengths, rubbing them lightly to make the treatment penetrate well. Leave on for 20 minutes then rinse with clear water and perform your usual shampoo.

Nourishing hair care with shea butter

Rich in fatty acids and vitamins A and E, shea butter has the ability to deeply nourish the hair fiber. It is especially suitable for dry, textured hair that needs protection and hydration.
The ingredients needed: 2 tablespoons of shea butter, 1 tablespoon of cocoa butter and 1 drop of ylang ylang essential oil.
Start by melting the butters in a bain-marie. Remove from the heat and let cool before adding the essential oil. Whip the mixture until you get a creamy texture. Apply the mask to damp hair, focusing on the lengths and roots. Rinse with lukewarm water.

Moisturizing hair care with yogurt

Yogurt is an ingredient of choice to moisturize and soften the hair. It is particularly suitable for curly and frizzy hair because it helps reduce frizz.
The ingredients needed: 1 yogurt and 1 tablespoon of jojoba oil.
In a bowl, mix the yogurt and vegetable oil with a whisk. Apply the treatment all over the hair, without forgetting the scalp (yogurt also treats excess sebum and dandruff). Leave on for 20 minutes before rinsing with a mild shampoo.

A nourishing homemade mask with argan oil

Argan oil is an oil of choice for your beauty recipes dedicated to the hair. Derived from the argan tree, it hydrates the hair without weighing it down, repairs split ends and redraws curls. Aspic lavender essential oil is an excellent active ingredient for strengthening the hair.
The ingredients needed: 3 tablespoons of argan oil and 2 drops of spike lavender essential oil.
In a bowl, mix the argan oil with the essential oil. Apply the treatment to your lengths, avoiding the roots. Leave on overnight under a warm towel.

A restructuring home mask with aloe vera

Aloe vera gel is made up of 98% water, which makes it an unbeatable moisturizing active ingredient. Applied to still damp hair, it will retain water in the heart of the hair fiber. Instantly, the hair is coated and strengthened.
The ingredients needed: 2 tablespoons of aloe gel, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and a tablespoon of shea butter.
Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl. Distribute on damp hair, emphasizing the lengths and ends. Rinse vigorously.
Note that frizzy hair can use this recipe as a leave-in treatment, perfect for redefining their curls.

A homemade soothing banana mask

Very nourishing, the banana has many benefits for curly and frizzy hair. It repairs, makes the hair silkier, softer and even stimulates growth.
The ingredients needed: 1 very ripe banana and 1 tablespoon of jojoba or olive oil depending on what you have available.
Mash the banana until you get a smooth creamy texture. Add the oil and mix again. Apply the treatment to damp hair, strand by strand. If you have oily hair, avoid the scalp. Leave on for about 30 minutes then rinse with lukewarm water and wash your hair with a mild shampoo.

A homemade nourishing avocado mask

Rich in vitamins A, E, C and essential fatty acids, avocado is ideal for regenerating and strengthening the hair fiber. Deposited on the lengths, it will create a protective barrier while improving the appearance of your curls.
The ingredients needed: ½ ripe avocado and 2 tablespoons of jojoba oil.
Mash the flesh of the avocado in a bowl, then add the jojoba oil and mix. Apply all over the hair then leave on for at least an hour. To boost the effects of the mask, you can wrap your head under a hot towel or a charlotte during the pose. Rinse with lukewarm water.

A restorative oil bath with coconut oil

This oil, whose gourmet smell we love, is ideal for applying in a hair bath. Composed of lauric acid, it deeply penetrates the hair fiber to repair and protect it. We also love it for its exceptional shine effect.
The ingredients needed: 3 tablespoons of coconut oil (to be dosed according to your hair length)
Separate your hair into two or even three sections, and apply the oil strand by strand. Lightly rub the hair to make the treatment penetrate well. Leave on overnight under a towel. Rinse the next day with a mild shampoo
