Combing cream is one of the hair products most commonly used in conjunction with shampoo. This natural option is the healthiest thing for your hair!
This homemade styling cream recipe is made with 100% natural, easy-to-find ingredients. It does not need rinsing and is very economical.
It involves combining coconut oil with aloe vera gel. Its oily compounds help to detangle hair fibers very easily and, at the same time, provide them with extra moisture to keep them healthy and shiny.
The texture and antioxidant compounds present in Aloe vera are truly essential, because they control frizz and volume and allow you to achieve almost any type of hairstyle.
Aloe Vera gel protects hair from external aggressions produced by the environment, reduces the negative effects of free radicals and thickens the hair to prevent hair loss.
This homemade leave-in styling cream also contains a high percentage of vitamin E, a restorative and antioxidant substance that promotes collagen production to preserve a very strong hair structure.
It is also a cream that contains fatty acids and antifungal compounds, which facilitate the elimination of dandruff, dead cells and other undesirable impurities that impregnate the hair.
Although coconut oil has a significant fat content, you can apply it without problems on any type of hair since it does not worsen the problem of bait on the scalp. On the contrary, its compounds help to regulate the natural pH of the hair, reducing the production of fat.
