Every time I wash my hair I think “I really need a good deep conditioner” and I never do anything about it. I decided to figure out a good recipe for deep conditioner I could make at home. I have very long hair and live in the desert so I knew I’d be going through a lot of product!
This recipe has all sorts of things that are good for your hair. Rosemary is allegedly supposed to help your hair grow. Coconut oil is a great moisturizer. Eggs are good for strengthening your hair as well as moisturizing. Honey can help dry and damaged hair. I wish I had sources to cite for these claims but hey, try it and test it for yourself and see!
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 4-6 drops rosemary essential oil
(My oils are from this kit.)
How to apply
Mix all the ingredients together and apply to your hair. Wrap your hair up in a shower cap and apply heat for 20 minutes. One way to apply heat without a hair dryer is to apply a shower cap, wrap a hot towel over the shower cap, then put another shower cap over top. This will keep the heat on your head and you can be hands free (as opposed to blow drying your hair). Wrap a bigger towel around your head to hold it in place a little better.
After 20 minutes wash it out with your normal shampoo and conditioner routine.
Taking care of your hair is so important and doesn’t it just feel good to do something for yourself every now and then? Who doesn’t love freshly conditioned hair!
