This treatment is ideal of for dehydrated curls.


  • 1 can of pure coconut milk (rich moisturize—hydrates, conditions and defrizzes hair)
  • 1 ripe avocado (natural source of protein—chlorine robs the hair of protein)
  • 2 tablespoons of pure honey (conditions and adds sheen)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil (hydrophobic oil that acts as a barrier to chlorine and salt water)


Add ingredients to blender. Mix at high speed until your concoction reaches a smoothie consistency. Section hair into 4 segments. Generously apply evenly to hair, from root to ends concentrating on ends…as they are the most prone to damage.

Store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. You can warm up your hair smoothie in the microwave before next application. Just enough do de-chill.

Feel free to substitute the olive oil for any natural oil of your choice. Add more oil for extra dry hair, e.g. 1 tablespoon. Add more honey for hair that needs more sheen, e.g. 2 tablespoons.

I tried this recipe today and it did in fact did moisturize my hair. the only downfall to this recipe is that it is too runny, and it gets everywhere.

I followed the recipe as stated. It dripped and did not add moisture to my hair. My curls were flat and thirsty when I rinsed it out.

I love this deep conditioner. I used coconut oil in place of olive oil as my hair is a little phobic of heavy oils, and it is soft, smooth and springy. A great mix for low porosity curls like mine; heaps of moisture without lots of oil and just enough protein to treat my curls to a lovely natural restructure.
