DIY: Hair Conditioner

For some of us, going natural did not stop with our hair. While numerous recipes exist on the internet, few are actually both simple AND effective in meeting the needs of our natural hair.  If you are new to making your own products or are a current mixtress searching for an easy-to-make recipe that actually works, you can start with these homemade conditioners, which are my favorites.


Recipe 1.

Avocado Deep Conditioner

  • 1/2 mashed ripe avocado
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 drops lavender or rosemary essential oil

Combine ingredients and apply to hair focusing on the ends. Leave on for at least 10 minutes, then rinse.

Recipe 2.

Banana Conditioner

  • 1 large overripe banana (sliced)
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp pure vegetable glycerin
  • 2 tbsp honey

Place the sliced banana all the ingredients in a blender. Blend the ingredients thoroughly making sure no lumps or banana bits remain. Apply to hair and let sit for 30-45 minutes under a shower cap. Detangle, rinse thoroughly, and style as usual.
