The Homemade Deep Conditioning Detangler For Curls
What you'll need:
4 organic, ripe bananas
1/2 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon agave
What to do:
Put the bananas in your blender and pulse until completely smooth. Add in the remaining ingredients, and blend until the mixture reaches a smoothie like consistency. This treatment works best fresh, but can be stored for one week in an air tight jar in the fridge. Blend again before using if necessary.
How to use:
Shampoo curls with a gentle cleansing shampoo and warm water. Squeeze excess moisture from curls, and apply the product throughout. Focus on roots to ends, massaging into the scalp. Make sure all the strands are completely covered, and tuck your curls under a plastic shower cap. Allow to sit for at least 30 minutes and apply heat if desired. Rinse away with lukewarm water, and follow up with a conditioning treatment.
Mix it up:
This treatment can be used as a base with other ingredients added as in. For example, if your curls are extremely dry, you can add in a tablespoon of coconut milk for extra hydration. You can experiment with other oils, such as almond or shea nut oil. You can also try incorporating avocado for a boost of healthy fats. Essential oils can help manage other issues, such as dandruff or irritated scalp. Tea tree and lavender are great choices. Honey is also a great addition.
