What can I make using the following ingredients?

I'm new to the homemade dc and hot oil treatments. So far I've been experimenting, but I figured it'd be best to come here for some advice.

I have: evoo, coconut oil, safflower oil, argan oil, jojoba oil, mayo, eggs, milk, and honey.

What else can/should I invest in?

Also, I've heard of saturating my hair with oil. What's the purpose in this and how would I go about doing that?

P.S. My curl type is 3c

Avocado and banana mushed together is another nice hair mask that you can use for 30 minutes to an hour then wash out. For shine you can use, 3 eggs, 2 tablespoons olive oil or safflower oil, and 1 teaspoon vinegar. Leave it on for 30 min
Each one has it's own purpose for shine, moisture, and overall keeping your hair healthy.

Now since you have honey, you can use those for fun face masks. Honey and sugar mixed together is a nice exfoliating mask to use, and you can look thru google for
You can use the oils for....
-a pre-poo treatment
-a sealant over a leave-in conditioner
-add-in for co-washes or deep treatments

You can use the honey for...
-a pre-poo treatment when mixed with oils
-add-in for co-washes, deep treatments and/or leave in conditioners
-add-in for acv rinses (http://www.maneandchic.com/2010/05/o...r-vinegar.html)
-honey rinses (http://www.ehow.com/about_4587717_using-honey-hair.html)
-face masks (http://www.ehow.com/how_4405820_honey-face-mask.html)

You can use the mayo and eggs for a homemade conditiong/protein treatment. Don't rinse with hot water--It'll "cook" the egg while it's in your hair.

Saturating your hair in oil before washing is a pre-poo treatment. Here's more info: (How to Do A Pre-Shampoo Treatment | eHow.com)

I have been mixing stuff in my head for a couple of days now.

for a moisturizer: coconut water or milk, aloe vera juice, honey, and some oils

for a DC/hair mask: avocado, blended coconut meat, banana, shea butter (maybe whipped), honey, oils, pureed carrots.

I don't know anybody else with any ideas.
Instead of a whole banana I would invest in banana baby food. There is organic options as well. Banana if not mushed well enough can get stuck in your hair and hard to getout but it makes your hair feel super nice. It is also really cheap.

I would also invest in some plain yogurt. I used to do treatments with yogurt as well every week.

I would also invest in ACV. I did wonderful things for my curls. You have to be careful of doing it too much though. Maybe once every two weeks or twice per month.

Olive oil by itself is nice deep treatment. I would saturate my hair with it and wait for about 30 minutes and rinse it out. IT really tames my curls down.

My favorite DT:
equal parts EVOO and Coconut oil (I'm guessing here, but maybe a 1/4 cup total), and about a Tbsp. (? I just squeeze some in, I am one of those forget the measuring utensils and eye it cooks) of honey. This works better than any store bought DT I have tried.
