Happy Fridayyyyy 🎉
So as I stated in my previous post on Winter Hair Tips I’ve been making my own dc (Deep Conditioner) for a while now & it’s worked wonders for my hair. Even when I don’t do a great job oiling my hair/scalp on the regular, that dc comes in for the save! And chillllleeeee lemme tell ya, my hair appreciates the hell outta of it!
The mixture is real easy to make & you only need few simple items you can find at the local market (I purposely said market to sound organic & healthy hahahah).
1 ripe banana, 1 avocado, 2 egg yolk, 4 tbsp honey, 4 tblspn Evoo, Any conditioner of your choice; mine was Tresemme. *(optional is additional oil such as Jamaican Castor oil, Jojoba Oil etc*)
Banana is rich in potassium, natural oils, carbohydrates and vitamins which help ins softening the hair and protects the hair’s natural elasticity preventing split ends and breakage. Banana creates manageability, shine, growth and controls dandruff.
Honey – The humectant properties of honey help regulate and retain moisture in hair, plus honey is said to strengthen hair follicles for healthy growth.
EVOO – The abundance of antioxidants in extra virgin olive oil leaves the scalp healthier and may reduce the damage done by hair care products. locking in moisture and preventing dryness of the scalp, it can make your hair soft, smooth and shiny.
Egg yolks – The fatty acids present in the yolk helps in improving the skin on the scalp, thus fighting dandruff, flaky scalp and psoriasis. Also Lecithin: This fatty protein found in the egg yolk helps in reducing frizz and helps in making hair smooth.
Avocado – helps rejuvenate and moisturize the scalp. A rich source of proteins, amino acids and vitamins, avocado helps soothe the scalp and promotes long, strong, healthy hair growth; great for scalp-saving hair mask recipe.
Conditioner of my choice – Tresemme (I liked the smell & that was the conditioner I could get my hands on in the house).
I use my Skatsz satin lined beanie for it's added heat which helps the mixture penetrate the hair shaft quicker & better. You can also just wear 2 bonnets to get similar heat.
All the products to blended in one! (Ignore the mitten but I have been told I bake a mean chocolate chip cookie hahah)
Blend everything till you get a smooth paste like so↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓
My hair with the above mixture, yall see them coils popppppin!
I wrapped a plastic bag over my hair to seal in the dc & threw on my Skatsz over the plastic bag for added heat. I let the dc sit in my hair for about an hour or 2, only because I forgot it was even in my hair, judge me not; you can leave it in your hair anywhere from 15 mins to an hour. Some people deep condition overnight, its really up to you. I rinsed out the dc & put some two strand twists in my hair & went smack to sleep! I was tired yall.
By the next day my hair had completely dried overnight & the twistout came out so soft, so hydrated & just plain ole purrty! 😍 I was very much satisfied!
