DIY hair treatments-an easy guide.

Hey!

Hope it's been a good weekend so far?


So I came across this image recently and found it so useful and simple as a guide for at-home, DIY hair conditioners for hairlistas- relaxed, texlaxed or natural.
One glance at it and you already see that they are kitchen items and very natural, suitable as moisturizing, clarifying or protein treatments. A good example of a moisturizing one is olive oil, avocado + bananas, and honey. Good example of a clarifying treatment is apple cider vinegar, lemon + baking soda, and honey. Milk, mayo + strawberries, and an egg make a great protein or strengthening hair mask.
I like how the image gives many options based on availability and preference and I think there are about over 25 different combinations here. Store-bought conditioners could be pricey, and DIY ones are always the way to go because you can customize as needed.


Which combo is your fave? :)

  1. My favorite combo is coconut oil, avocado, mayonnaise, honey. I just can't resist coconut oil. It makes my hair to thrive and I'll also want to try out mayonnaise coz I heard its good.

  2. Hello Fola,

    The weekend has been rather lovely.

    Hmmm what a useful tip, thank you for sharing. Coconut oil is my favourite hair sealant, it is so light and smells yummy.

    In the past, I used ACV as a neutralizer on relaxer days and for my final rinse on wash days. Apart from eggs for DCing, I haven't tried using the other edible kitchen items in my hair, but I want to try honey because it has great slip, so should be a good for detangling.
