Question: Help! I’m out of deep conditioner! What’s an efficient DIY recipe?
My favorite DIY deep conditioner is found on NaturalHairRules.com.
You will need:
- 1 ripe banana
- 2-3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/4 cup tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon pure honey
- plastic conditioning cap
How to Use: Mix banana and EVOO in a blender until very smooth, then add remaining ingredients and mix well until there are no lumps. Pour mixture through a strainer to remove any extra lumps or banana pulp before applying to your hair. Apply to wet hair, cover with plastic conditioning cap and leave on for a minimum of 30 minutes before rinsing thoroughly.
