Here’s What Happened When a Beauty DIY Cynic Tried an Easy Hack for Natural Hair

This article originally appeared on HelloGiggles. I look at DIYers with childlike wonderment. I’m in awe of how they can reach into their cupboards, whip out their mixers, and create beauty magic. I, on the other hand, do not own a mixer and can’t seem to get any recipe quite right. But I found an easy, lazy-girl approved natural hair DIY that works wonders.
Sadly, more than ever, my type 4b curls need something different. My hair tends to be on the dry side and no matter what I do, my ends are in shambles. I have no other choice than to play nice with my curls until I can spring for another DevaCut.   Looking for new product reviews led me to an Instagram channel of natural hair videos. (My Explore page is 99% hair. Thank you, Instagram for noticing my most used and clicked on hashtags.) More than any specific brand or category of products, it was all about the DIY.   Somewhere down the natural hair rabbit hole, I found a pretty simple deep conditioner made with three ingredients — coconut oil, avocado, and honey. Sounds easy enough, right? The video was created by natural hair vlogger Neptune’s Quest. Honestly, I was too lazy to watch the full tutorial on her YouTube channel. (This is why I just can’t with DIYs — laziness.) With a pic of the desired consistency as my guide, I decided to wing it.
