PRO TIP: Although not necessary, I suggest that you use the double boiler method to soften or melt the butters down.

This makes it easier to mix without wearing out your arm if you don’t have a handy kitchen mixer. Also makes mixing easier for mechanical mixers.

DIY curl cream without shea butter diy_curl_cream_without_shea_butter kinky krazy moisture kream matrixTIP #2:After 10-20 minutes of whipping, your Kokum Bomb mixture should look something like whip cream in its consistency. More or less, don't freak out if yours looks a little different. The whipping time and power of your mixer changes the consistency.

Kitchen Mixer vs Hand mixing: 
Krazy Moisture Kokum Bomb DIY Curl Cream Without Shea

You have a mechanical mixer, right? OK good.

After removing the mixture from your fridge, use your kitchen mixer to thoroughly whip your ingredients together until it's smooth and creamy.

The KMKB Daily Moisturizing DIY curl cream without shea butter will feel light and provide your hair with a ton of hair-saving moisture. 

You can whip it to the consistency that you like best, the more you whip it the more light and fluffy it's going to be.

If You’re Mixing By Hand:

If you’re not blessed with a mechanical kitchen mixer, don't worry.

The only difference will be the look and consistency of your Kokum Bomb daily natural hair moisturizer.

After melting everything down and letting it sit in the fridge for a few minutes, just mix/whisk it really good by hand with your favorite kitchen utensil.

You'll get the exact same benefits from this DIY hair cream without shea ingredients Matrix.

Why The Kokum Bomb DIY CURL Cream Without Shea Butter Works

So that you can understand the chemistry of this DIY curl cream without shea butter recipe:

I will breakdown and explain the benefits of the individual ingredients in it.

This will familiarize you with how this ingredient Matrix boosts your hair health, heightens your hair's shine, beauty and suppleness...

...all while creating a scalp environment for length retention and increased hair growth.

The Benefits of Kokum Butter for Your Natural Hair

Kokum butter is perfect for this DIY curl cream without shea butter, for scalp treatments and promoting strong roots.

It gives your scalp a nourished and replenished atmosphere that is perfect for promoting hair growth.

Kokum butter is high in essential fatty acids like omega-3 and omega-6 which nourishes your kinks and creates strength in your strands.

It's polyunsaturated fats also contribute to a more balanced "moisture barrier" in your natural hair and promotes superior hair health.

As you probably know:

A healthy natural moisture barrier is absolutely key to helping your hair lock in hydration (A.K.A. water).

Another thing that makes Kokum butter better for your natural hair is that it isn't greasy..

...and doesn't sit on top of your hair.


It absorbs into your natural hair unlike some other hair butters.

The Benefits of Capuacu Butter for Natural Hair

The reason why Capuacu butter works to make your natural hair look amazing is because it is loaded with antioxidants which protects cells of all type against environmental and damage.

Capuacu butter is a natural protectant against harmful UV sun rays.

And it protects the elasticity of your hair and skin because it improves moisture levels, it is also a great anti-inflammatory.

That allows:

You to build upon your hair health regimen and look deliciously poppin’! 

The Benefits of Mango butter for Your Natural Hair

Oh sweet mango!

Mango butter makes sure your natural hair looks soft and moist because it's packed with growth-promoting nutrients and vitamins Like A and E.

Mango butter also has natural antioxidants which slow the breakdown of your hair tissues.

On top of that:

Magnificent Mango butter is packed with essential fatty acids that make your hair look luscious.

The Benefits of Fractionated Coconut Oil for Natural Hair In DIY Curl Cream Without Shea Butter

Imma tell you STRAIGHT UP:

Either use FRACTIONATED coconut oil or leave coconut oil out of this recipe all-together.

If you use normal coconut oil (unrefined, extra virgin, cold-pressed, blah, blah, blah)

Your mixture is NOT "Kokum Bomb compliant".

You got something completely different, outside of our ingredient Matrix.

You see:

This has fractionated coconut oil because a lot of type 3 and 4 naturals...

...especially those with low porosity hair, have a problem with dryness when using coconut oil.

It even causes some low porosity girls to think they are protein sensitive when they aren't.

There's a reason for that:

It’s because of the long chain fatty acids in virgin coconut oil that turns solid at colder temperatures.

That is the reason why a lot of times coconut oil can make natural hair feel crunchy and dry,

We got tricked y'all:

So many natural hair YouTubers told us that the Holy Grail of all coconut oils was:

  • Extra virgin coconut oil
  • Unrefined
  • Cold pressed
  • Laced with unicorn tears (LOL)
  • Organic
  • Non-GMO

Get this and the gaaaawds of natural hair would rain down blessings upon our Kinks and curls!

DIY curl cream without shea butter krazy_moisture-kokum-bomb-for-natural-hair-diy-daily-cream-kmkbMake your own DIY curl cream without shea butter!

Dat's a bumpy-faced LIE!

(At least for some of us)

Fractionated coconut oil is a whole different story:

Fractionated coconut oil for natural hair is able to penetrate your hair strands much better than virgin coconut oil, especially for low porosity hair Naturals.

And here's why:

Those same long-chain triglycerides that you see getting stiff and firm inside the bottle at room temperature or slightly below. 

Also known as...

The CULPRIT of crunchiness.

Is fractionated OUT of your coconut oil.


Those problematic fatty acid types are removed from the virgin coconut oil through a process of steam distillation.

This gives you:

Fractionated coconut oil that becomes odorless and colorless and stays in liquid form even in colder temperatures.

I’ll admit:

This oil is usually more expensive than the regular coconut oil but is more beneficial to your low porosity natural hair.

If you like using rice water rinses to fight frizziness, you might want to add fractioned coconut oil to your regimen as well, because...

...it also helps reduce frizz and gives you all the benefits extra virgin coconut oil.

Now you see...

...why I said: 

DON’T CHANGE NOTHIN’ IN THIS specially-formulated ingredient Matrix?

(BTW...If you want a curling cream without coconut, I got you! I'm working on it. I don't wanna give it to you before it's PERFECT, though...)

Benefits of Avocado Oil for Your Natural Hair

Every oil is made of smaller "oil components" (molecule types), and in each oil they are present (or not) in varying amounts.

And it's no secret:

That natural hair of all types often responds extremely well to raw Avocado oil.

Avocado oil is one of the oils that truly penetrates your hair beyond the cuticles.

It also lubricates your hair and has a different chemical composition than coconut oil and olive oil..

Raw Avocado oil has a good mix of extremely nourishing components for your hair.

The Benefits of Rosemary Oil for Your Natural Hair

Not only does rosemary essential oil smell minty, woodsy and delicious...

... it's phenomenal for stimulating hair growth and blood flow into your scalp.

The Benefits of Lavender Oil for Your Natural Hair

Lavender smells absolutely delicious and is incredibly nourishing as well.

Lavender is great for preventing dandruff, it's good for fighting against hair loss and helps tremendously at helping to balance your natural sebum production.

The Benefits of Cedarwood oil for Your Natural Hair

Cedarwood is antiseptic and antibacterial.

Its anti-inflammatory properties helps with fighting dandruff, it's great for your skin and excellent for eliminating itchiness on your scalp.

The Benefits of Tea Tree Oil for Natural Hair

If you are plagued with dry or itchy scalp, Tea Tree Essential Oil is a solution worth trying.

It is a great natural alternative for treating scalp problems. 

100% PURE Tea Tree Oil is a pure essential oil with antiseptic, antibiotic and antifungal properties that promotes hair growth, soothes and stimulate shair follicles and removes build up from the scalp.

The Benefits of Vitamin E for Natural Hair

Vitamin E has anti-inflammatory properties which can counter scalp skin irritations.

What’s more, it forms a protective layer over the scalp skin and keeps it hydrated.

Moreover, since Vitamin E is fat-soluble, it can penetrate deep into the skin and heal scalp infections.
