There is something called an SMT (Snowy's Moisture Treatment) that is 1/4 part aloe, 1/4 part honey, and 1 part conditioner of your choice-also, people change it if their hair likes certain ingredients, such as olive oil etc. Some omit the aloe. You can basically take the recipe and tweak it however you want depending on the ingredients you happen to have at hand. HTH!

This is the best product line I have used. The Califia Conditioner is a great daily condish but I just realized the other day it says on the bottle it is good for deep treatments also....and it really is !

You have to mix this one, but it's easy. You don't even need a blender:

2tbs Tropical Traditions Coconut cream conentrate (or other unsweetened coconut cream)
2 tbs coconut oil
4-6 oz of plain yogurt
Optional - banana baby food pureee
1 tbs ACV

Melt the first 2 ingredients, add the ACV and slowly drizzle in the yogurt and banana as you mix with a spoon. It's a mayonnaise/mousse like consistency. Apply in small sections to wet clean hair, smoothing down from root to end with fingers.. Cover and use a heat cap for 1/2 hours. Rinse thoroughly. Use a regular conditioner after to detangle.

So I used GypsyCurls recipe tonight. And my hair looks so good. It is moisturized and I have less frizz. That is saying a lot because I'm the queen of frizz. Thanks for all your input ladies!!!

Default Awesome All-Natural Deep conditioner

Hi CClark1. Here's a simple deep conditioner/pre-poo that I do before co-washing my hair.

Mix about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of honey
3 tbsp or more (to your liking) Extra Virgin Olive Oil

I heat this in the microwave about 10 seconds. Just enough to allow the two ingredients to melt together.

Then I apply the mixture to my entire head from roots to tips and cover with a shower cap.

I sit under my hooded-dryer for 30 minutes on medium heat. If you don;t have a dryer, you may want to leave the shower cap on a little longer.

After this, I rinse the mixture out and co-wash my hair as usual. This simple treatment leaves my hair extremely soft and shiny.

As I mentioned, I use this as a pre-poo. You can still use it as a deep conditioner after washing your hair.

I hope it works for you!

I second the Komaza Califia conditioner recommendation. I just tried a sample I bought from kathymack. It's VERY thick. You can't even shake it in the bottle. It was too much for my 3A hair as a daily conditioner, but I think it would be superb as a DT or for someone with tighter curls than mine. I've never tried AOHR, but it reminds me of how people describe that.

Komaza Califia Care Conditioner Ingredients: Distilled water Dipalmitoylethyldimonium Chloride (A derivitive of Palm Oil) aloe vera, aloe butter, shea butter, behentrimonium , Algae Extract, cellulose (Thickener), quaternium 87, allatoin, aloe vera oil, jojoba oil, nettles, horsetail, pro vitamin B5,Vitamin E, allantoin, cinnamon cassia, potassium sorbate.

I second the olive oil and honey mixture. I tend to heat mine a bit longer because I paint it on to my hair and massage it into my scalp.

Cherry Lola has an awesome conditioner recipe on her web site... You can probably make it heavier by using a heavier oil or even a butter.

25g of light oil

2 g of Vit. E

10 G of BTMS wax

80 g of water

0.2 g of silk protien

4 g of Panthenol

30 drops of EO for fragrance

I 2nd this post, just did this this past weekend (except I slept in the olive oil/honey mixture), did a co-wash with conditioner and baking soda, followed with a DT and heating cap because I had the time. My hair is still very soft.
