The Ultra Moisturizing DIY Deep Conditioner
It's no secret the winter months are hard on curls. The cold air and elements can be incredibly drying to delicate curls. One way to combat this issue is to consider making your own DIY deep conditioning treatment. This way, you know exactly what's going into your deep conditioner and therefore on your curls. Here's the ultra moisturizing DIY deep conditioner.
What you need:
- 3 tablespoons organic mayonnaise
- 4 tablespoons organic coconut oil (melted, but cooled slightly)
- 3-4 tablespoons raw honey
- 5 tablespoons moisturizing conditioner
- 1 large egg
What to do:
Find a medium sized bowl, and crack the egg into it. Beat the egg until light and fluffy. Add in the conditioner and mix to combine. Add in the 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise, and follow up with the coconut oil. Then finally add the honey. Mix until completely blended. You can use it immediately or store in the fridge in an air tight jar until you're ready to use it.
How to use:
Wash your curls in sections, making sure to massage your scalp to help break up any build up. Rinse completely and then apply the deep conditioning treatment from mid shaft to ends. Make sure to take your time and thoroughly cover all strands until your hair is completely covered. Tuck your curls up into a plastic shower cap, and apply heat with a steam hood, or with a warm towel. Allow the deep conditioner to sit in your curls for a minimum of an hour. You can also allow the product to sit in your hair overnight if your curls need an extra boost of moisturizer. Once you're done, rinse the deep conditioner out with lukewarm water and follow up with your own styler.
