As my natural hair grows longer, I end up needing more product just to cover all of my strands. One natural hair product that I don’t like to skimp on is my deep conditioner. I’m talking about conditioners that are meant for deep conditioning (the ones that actually provide directions on how to use it as a deep conditioner). But, as I’m sure you know, those “good quality” deep conditioners can run you a pretty penny. This is especially the case when you end up going thru 1 bottle in 2-3 weeks (if you deep condition weekly like I do). So, what’s a girl to do when she needs a lot of deep conditioner but doesn’t want to break the bank? Keep reading to find out the answer.
To make sure I have a good, quality conditioner, I turn to making it myself. After searching the web, I stumbled across a deep conditioner recipe from Eclark6 (Instagram). If you haven’t seen her hair, make sure you check out her Instagram page because her hair is gorgeous.
So, to make this luscious deep conditioner, you will need the following:
2 Tbsp of raw honey
½ cup of coconut milk
1 or 2 Tbsp of coconut oil
Blend the banana, avocado, raw honey, and coconut milk in a blender until it is nice and creamy. Pour into a bowl and then stir in the coconut oil. This is what you’re left with.
Apply to your natural hair and continue with your normal deep conditioner routine.
Note: Naptural85 gave a tip for straining out the bits of avocado and banana when using them in a hair treatment. Before applying this to my hair, I pour the conditioner into a strainer to ensure I don’t have any banana or avocado bits left in my hair. (insert picture of product in strainer)
So, let me know your results if you decide to try this deep conditioner recipe out. What are some of your tried and true homemade natural hair products? Let me know!
