DIY Deep, Natural Hair Conditioner
These are deeply hydrating treatments for hair that has become dry and or damaged. Consider them “moisture packs” for your hair; spa treatments full of restorative oils and vitamins to get your hair back into shape. Work them through your hair well, paying special attention to the ends. Cover with a plastic bag or shower cap and relax, allowing the hair to soak up the treatment for 20-30 minutes. Because these can leave your hair oily, you’ll want to shampoo lightly afterwards, and rinse well.
Here is one simple DIY deep hair conditioner that is as rich as they get.
Mix the avocado with enough coconut oil to make a smooth consistency. Work through hair. Set for 15 minutes or so. Wash as normal.
