Healthy hair is what we desire but we have to take care of it to achieve it. Weekly deep conditioning is important to retain length, strengthen elasticity, reduce split ends, and moisturize. So I made up my own DIY Shea butter deep conditioner using simple ingredients I already have in my house. You can do this too and if there’s an ingredient you’re missing, you may replace it with another similar to it. However, make sure you do your research and check out the benefits to make sure it makes sense to what you want to achieve with your hair.
Shea butter is the main ingredient to this deep conditioner because it’s a natural conditioner providing moisture to dry and damaged hair. It relieves itchy scalp and alleviates dandruff and scalp issues. It softens your hair and doesn’t cause build up.
Honey and glycerine are natural humectants and has anti-inflammatory properties.
Goat’s milk and coconut milk is good for dry scalp and softens hair. Prevents breakage and moisturizes.
Coconut oil is a protectant of the hair shaft and improves overall hair health.
Castor oil stimulates the scalp and increases hair growth.
Grapeseed oil gives hair shine and is high in vitamin E.
Tea tree oil unclogs hair follicles and nourishes your roots.
Peppermint essential oil treats the scalp and promotes hair growth.
Apply the conditioner to dry hair if using as a pre-poo treatment or to wet hair if using after a wash. Start with the scalp and spread down to the roots. Massage it into the scalp well. Cover head with a plastic cap and a towel or tshirt over it to lock in the natural heat from your head for about an hour. If sitting under a dryer, leave on for 15-20 mins. Rinse out well making sure to massage the scalp for any residue.
