Hi guys! Happy Tuesday! Today I’m coming to you with a post about homemade deep conditioners. Fun Fact– I haven’t bought any deep conditioners in MONTHS! I’ve been mixing it up lately, and I think I’m a certified mixtress now. 🙂
My mixtures are different every week, but there are some ingredients that I ALWAYS use. Here’s a list and why!
I use honey every week, without fail. It keeps my hair shiny and lustrous! It’s also a natural humectant, meaning that it draws moisture to the hair, which our hair is always in need of. It has anti-bacterial properties, and it can also be used as a cleanser. Sweet! (Pun intended)
I have a bottle of JBCO that I should use more, because it’s great for the hair! It’s anti-bacterial and anti-fungicidal, so prolonged use of it will take care of most hair ailments. I had a lot of dandruff when I permed, and since transitioning, I’ve seen no flakes. It’s moisturizing, and it improves scalp circulation, which leads to growth! It can help control split ends, and also help thicken the hair.
Ugh, let’s just talk about how I love this stuff. I use it in my DC’s, I use it to seal, I use it for everything. It can be used for shine and softness.
Yep, I saved the best for last! Eggs are a superfood for your hair! They are a FAB source of protein, so they pack your hair with some strength, while also imparting shine.
So there it is, beauties! These are my homemade DC ingredients that I always use. There are some others, but that’s another post!
Until next time,
