Natural, Homemade Deep Conditioners For Added Moisture

Fran of HeyFranHey.com
 
There’s a misconception that damaged natural hair can be repaired with deep treatments and magical serums. Yes, there are tons of protein treatments that can fill in a few gaps here and there, serving as a quick fix. But there’s no real way to re-construct a strand that has already been damaged. These irreversible side effects, usually stemming from harsh chemicals, heat and over-styling, can only be cut off. Our job, as naturals, is to try and minimize techniques and products that may cause such damage in order to salvage our hair. One of the key contributors to hair health is moisture. Moisturizing regularly, combined with nutrient rich deep treatments and fresh trims (to release any old damage) will keep your mane at its full potential. Different natural ingredients have different purposes; make sure to always do your research so you’re getting exactly what you’re looking for! Here are three of my favorite all-natural DIY deep conditioners and their health benefits:
 
Avocado-Coconut Milk Deep Conditioner For Dandruff & Frizz
 
1 Avocado
½ can of (fat) Coconut Milk
2 tbsp of Organic Coconut Oil
2 tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Optional extras:
(1/3 cup of organic honey for extra dry hair)
(1 lemon for hair loss)
 
*Blend and apply in hair for 30 min to an hour
 
 
Yogurt-Banana Deep Conditioner For Breakage-Prone Hair
 
1 cup of plain whole-fat Yogurt
1 Banana
1 Egg
2 tbsp of Jamaican Black Castor Oil
 
*Blend and apply in hair for 30 min to an hour
 
 
Hot Oil Deep Treatment For Dry Hair
 
1 cup of Water (Bring to a boil)
2 tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tbsp of Jojoba Oil
2 tbsp of Jamaican Black Castor Oil
10 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
 
*Stir oils in water until warm. Massage mixture onto hair and scalp. Rinse after 30 min
