I used to make my own deep treatment using a can of coconut milk, a tablespoon or two of extra virgin olive oil, and a tablespoon of honey. I'd blend it all up, pour it on my hair in the shower, put a shower cap on and leave it in for about an hour. It's cheap and easy to find, and for my hair it worked great to moisturise and keep it healthy.
