Happy Friday Folks!
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! 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.
Banana – Banana is rich in potassium, natural oils, carbohydrates and vitamins which help insoftening 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. 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)
All the products 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↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓
Aftermath of blended items
My hair with the above mixture, yall see them coils popppppin!
I put a plastic bag over on my hair & wrapped a scarf & a bonnet for the added heat. I let the dc sit in my hair for about an hour (only because I forgot it was even in my hair, judge me not) you can have it in your hair anywhere from 15 mins to an hour. Some people dc overnight, its really up to you. My hair came out soooo soft, hydrated, shinny & just plain ole purrty!
I rinsed out the dc & put some two strand twists in my hair & went smack to sleep! I was tired yall.
Let me know what you guys think below. Have you tried a similar mixture? What do you use to deep condition?
