Have you had those days when it’s your hair wash day and you’ve run out of a deep conditioner? Worse, you’re broke or you just don’t have that time to go buy a new one?
Well, I’ve been there numerous times and those are the times when my homemade deep conditioner came in handy. I have used it a couple of times and my hair has loved the experience. Here is a list of things that you will need to make your homemade deep conditioner:
An egg yolk
Something to note; the amount of items you want to use will be determined by how thick and long your hair is. You will also want to use the egg yolk alone and not the white because an egg white tends to cook on the hair once there is heat involved and this is not a good thing. It’s going to be a big hustle trying to remove the egg white particles from your hair. I’ve been there. Don’t even think about it. The next thing is to put all this items into a bowl.
Use a blender to mix the items together and your results should have a creamy consistency, something close to this:
Apply the mixture on your hair in twisted sections just to avoid any tangles. You will also want to have your hair under a shower cap and tie it with a headscarf to generate body heat so that your hair follicles will open up and allow the deep conditioner to penetrate into your hair shaft. Do this for about twenty to thirty minutes for better results. One more thing, this process can also be done even if you haven’t run out of your hair conditioner so that it acts as a deep conditioner. Rinse it off with cold water, then apply your conditioner as usual.
Your natural hair will love your homemade deep conditioner as the avocado and egg yolk is rich in protein which strengthens the hair preventing it from breaking. The egg yolk also helps in preventing split ends which helps in maintaining the oldest part of your natural hair. In return this will help in increase your hair length as your hair grows.
