Tonight not a DIY kinda night? No problem, here’s how to create 3 deep conditioning cocktails using the bossiest, most talented packets in the entire packet section. (I like to think of them as the Beyonce’s of the assortment.)
To get the most bang out of these single use conditioners, you really have to do some cocktailing. My approach is just to add whatever seems to be missing from the product. I always seem to do some combination of these three conditioners with my favorite three oils: EVOO, coconut oil and sunflower seed oil since these three are proven to penetrate the hair shaft. (I learned a lot of handy oil info here.)
The Dr. Miracle’s Deep Conditioning Treatment is one of my favorites. My dry hair loves how thick and hydrating it is plus it has a tingling feeling that my scalp just adores. It doesn’t need an oil, but I like to mix it with sunflower oil. It doesn’t need a heavy oil like EVOO and it already gives shine so it doesn’t need the coconut either. The lightweight sunflower oil works just fine.
Creme of Nature Intensive Conditioning Treatment is already loaded with argan oil but that doesn’t stop me! This mask is on the lighter side so I add EVOO to give it some heft. This combo gives me the most shine and if your hair loves oils, this is the cocktail for you.
ORS HaiRepair Nourishing Conditioner has plenty of good stuff in it already like banana and bamboo extract, but I like to pump up the shine with (you guessed it) coconut oil or even a extra banana if I have one.
Do you cocktail your deep conditioners or is your grail good on it’s own? I wanna know!
