Routine deep conditioning is vital to keeping your curls healthy, soft and shiny, but it can get a bit expensive over time. The great thing is that there are budget friendly ingredients in your home that can be used in creating your own effective deep conditioner.
These are the recipes that have shown me the best results:
#1 – Honey, Oils, and Keratin Conditioner.
Conditioner – I usually use a Keratin conditioner as the base since it gives me the smoothest results.
Oils – For best results mix vitamin E oil, avocado oil, coconut oil and olive oil.
Honey – Flower honey or organic honey is the best.
Leave on for 15 minutes with a plastic cap on so that the heat from your head can let the ingredients penetrate the hair. This deep conditioning recipe is perfect for super frizzy, dry hair since it is extremely moisturizing and the keratin will help smooth the hair.
#2 – Rose water, Vegetable Glycerin, Coconut milk
Coconut milk – is a great moisturizer for the hair, it also nourishes the hair with proteins.
Rose water – it helps to controls excess oil production. Rose water can help to reduce dandruff as well.
Vegetable Glycerin – attracts moisture.
Vitamin E oil – vitamin E stimulates hair growth.
With this recipe or any with vegetable glycerin, it’s important to always dilute with an oil or it can cause hair to dry and break. Leave on for 15 -20 minutes.
#3 – Avocado oil, Yogurt, Rice milk
Avocado oil – a great moisturizer, and has anti-inflammatory properties.
Yogurt – rich in protein it will strengthen your hair strands, and add shine.
Rice milk – Moisturizing to the hair.
Use a plastic cap to boost the process. Leave on for 10-15 minutes. Do not use to often is your hair is sensitive to protein.
