Cucumber and Egg

cucmber deep conditioner

The recipe:

• 1/2 cucumber • 1 egg • 1/2 an eggshell's worth of extra-virgin olive oil

Cucumber is a natural refresher so it’s no wonder that a great treatment would include it. It’s a great finishing touch to a deep conditioning treatment. Eggs are also great to give your hair a great smooth finish. An important thing to remember when trying this treatment: NO HEAT (including hot water)! The heat can literally cook the egg into your hair and that just spells disaster for everyone. Your hair will also smell like egg unlike banana, the smell of eggs cooked into your hair is not pleasant.

For a Cucmber and Egg replacement: Wen Lavender Cleansing Conditioner or Aubrey Organics Sea Buckthorn Leave-In Conditioner.

Great post, very informative. I've been using Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan Oil System to tackle breakages and split ends and so far it has worked really well to protect and repair my hair. I recommend it!
Careful with honey... I've read where it becomes peroxide-like. Some people actually use it to lighten their hair color! http://www.longhaircommunity.com/forums/showthread.php?t=148
I tried this deep conditioner this afternoon and I definitely see the shine in my hair. Only problem was that my hair was tangled up from this treament.
i would use them but my friend is allergic to honey and i don't really want to accidentally make her break out in hives... :/ .... agian
I read about the aloe vera and knew I had some so I decided to try it. Mine isn't organic or anything and although it says pure 100 percent aloe vera there are a few other ingredients in it that I wasn't sure about so I tried it cautiously by using just a drop on my fingertips with a teeny bit of water to dilute it and put it though a dry curl on top and it worked great. It smoothed out the bit of friz and took away the parched look my 3b curls often have. Then I added some to my spray water bottle and used it as a spritz. I love it and will contine to do this. I also tried the extra virgin olive oil on the bottom of my ends at the nape of my neck and it worked very well also.
I've been using avocado for quite some time and it has worked wonders on my hair. I've never added honey, though, I'll try it next time I dc.
I put this exact recipe on my hair with no noticeable benefit! The only thing that my hair responds to is serious hot oil.
I dont think there are amounts on the recipes because it'll vary from person to person. Like I whould only have to use 1 tbsp of oil while my frenid whould have to use a 1/4 of a cup. and the genral rule for d.i.y. hairmasks once it's smooth put it on.
Wow.. There isn't a recipe really on some of them. I'm just going to throw stuff together with the thing on top with the most and go from there
So how are we supposed to make these deep conditioners? Just mash them all together and stir? There are no steps here...
