Is Your Natural Hair Conditioner Really Doing Its Job?

The products we buy often boast to contain a certain ingredient, so much that they are even labeled by the name of the key ingredient at times.

Unfortunately, if you turn the bottle around and read the ingredients you’ll find it only includes a trace amount of that ingredient and the rest many times is questionable chemicals and fragrance oils.

And when you consider the first and main ingredient is water, how good can it really do?

And how much money are you overpaying for a product that doesn’t work?

    DIY Natural Hair Conditioner Ingredients

    How to Make DIY Natural Hair Conditioner

    Using the double boiler method or the microwave melt together coconut oil and shea butter. I recommend only including the shea butter if you have coarse or very dry hair. Shea butter is incredibly moisturizing and can be too much for fine hair.

    Let the coconut, shea mixture stand until almost solid. Then squeeze the juice of half a lemon into the mixture and add argan oil. Whip together with a hand mixer for three minutes.

    Then add each drop of essential oil. Continue to whip for two more minutes until creamy. Scoop into a small airtight jar.

    How to Apply Natural Hair Conditioner

    You can apply this softening natural hair conditioner using two methods. For a deep conditioning treatment apply it as a hair mask.

    Add a quarter size amount to your hair beginning at the ends and working your way up. Wrap hair into a warm towel and let condition for 30 minutes before washing hair.

    The second method simply involves applying the conditioner to dry ends three times weekly in the shower before washing. I apply just a nickel size amount when using this method to soften hair.

        It won’t be after using, I’d start with it as hair mask. Then work it into your weekly routine two to three times a week, depending on your hair type.

        I understand Debbie, I don’t know if it’ll do anything for hair growth. But it does help make hair soft and healthy.

      Sorry Kristy I forgot to ask you if there is any other oil that I can use that would be just as good as argon oil??

        Apricot oil is another great carrier oil for hair. You could try doubling the coconut oil and leaving out the argan oil too.

      Hi! In the second method you talk about applying the conditioner to the hair before washing. Are you supposed to use the shampoo afterwards?

        Laura if you’re hair dry or frizzy you can apply conditioner first as a preconditioning treatment. Otherwise, after shampooing is A.O.K.
