How to make homemade deep conditioner

So in my ” How to wash kinky/curly hair” post I mentioned a homemade deep conditioner. I use this biweekly to moisturize my hair. I usual leave it on for at least one hour, but you can leave it on longer if you want to.

You will need a container to put your mixture inĀ  and the following ingredients:

RECIPE

extra virgin olive oil

avocado oil

tea tree essential oil

aloe vera gel

your favorite conditioner

It’s really easy, your favorite conditioner should fill 50% of you container, the EVOO and the avocado oil should fill up 30% of the container and the other 20% should be the aloe vera gel mixed with 3-5 drops of tea tree essential oil. Tell me if you like it!

How to wash kinky/curly hair?

So I have kinky/curly hair (which I love btw) and over the years I have tried many different ways to wash it without taking out chunks of it when I’m combing it out. Today I’m going to show you the method that I currently use.

STEP 1

Section your hair into 4 sections. If you have hair that is shoulder length or short, part each of the 4 sections into 2. Leaving you with 8 sections all together.Spritz each section with a bit of water to de-tangle.

STEP 2

Apply homemade deep conditioner to each section, comb through and twist.

STEP 3

Put a shower cap on and let it soak in for at least 30 minutes. You can leave it on longer if your hair is feeling really dry.

STEP 4

DO NOT RINSE OUT DEEP CONDITIONER AND DO NOT PULL OUT TWISTS, apply shampoo to your roots and wash with your usual fingertip circular motions. Shampoo twice if needed. Rinse out shampoo completely.

STEP 5

Pull out one twist at a time and apply conditioner to the shaft of the hair and the ends and comb through. Remember to retwist the twist you pulled out after you apply conditioner and comb through. Rinse out conditioner.

STEP 6

Pat dry. DO NOT RUB. Moisturize and seal each twist, oil your scalp and style!

Voila!! You have washed your hair. It feels weird at first, but once you get used to it, you will see the difference.
