Deep condish
 
Does anybody have a favorite homemade deep conditioner? This summer I'm experimenting with my hair and I would like to try something new.

Thanks :)

I love using a conditioner as a base, adding mayonnaise, honey, and a little vatika oil. Which is pretty much just coconut oil. And if I want a little more protein, an egg.
Or I'll do avocado, coconut milk, and honey. Avocado makes your hair super soft but it is protein as is the coconut milk so if you're protein sensitive like me, don't do that one too often! :)

Thanks for all of the advice! I think that my hair likes protein (high porosity) but I'm not sure. I'm looking forward to making both of those! Also how often do you do a DC?

@earthnut do you melt it down or just put it in unaltered? I have the semi-solid kind and it might be kind of difficult to put it in hard.

I'm high porosity and protein sensitive! It varies. But yours most likely does being high. I do it once or twice a week. Normally twice. (:

this is rather interesting with the protein talk. im protein sensitive and just use my normal condish as a base and add a whole heap of oils. but the other week i bought a deep condish and when i got home i re read it and it does have eggs in it. but when i mixed it half half with my normal condish it went really well. :flower:

I don't heat it, I just scoop some out with my fingers and rub it between my palms. My body heat melts it.

I heard some people just add oils to their conditioner. Have any of you guys tried it?

forestwillow 08-03-2012 09:55 AM

^^ hm good idea never tried it but it would probably work!

Keihs 08-03-2012 08:21 PM

I also make them into a spray. I just mix some up. Oils, conditioner, and even just water. Then, just water them down to the consistency you like. I use it to refresh my hair when its feeling dry and it makes them easier to apply.

Coconut milk and raw honey works pretty well for me :).

Keihs 08-12-2012 10:59 PM

I heard that coconut milk has protein in them and that honey might lighten hair. Just saying. I like them, too.

jeepcurlygurl 08-13-2012 01:33 PM

I add various things to one of my regular conditioners, usually Sauve coconut.
coconut oil
jojoba oil
safflower, sunflower, hempseed oil
honey
Ojon Restorative Treatment

Does anyone have a receipe that is protein sensitive hair friendly lol (seriously)

TristanAmber 10-21-2012 03:38 PM

Do you guys use heat such as hair dryers to dc or do you just use body heat?

It depends.. If I'm in a hurry, I'll just use a hair dryer, but if it's night and I don't want to wake anyone up, I'll just sleep in it with a bag on my head.
