How to Make Hair Conditioner with Coconut Oil
Coconut Oil and Aloe Vera.
Aloe Vera is another excellent hair conditioner. Not only does it smooth your hair, but it also repairs skin health on your scalp.
Combined with coconut oil, you’ll get a highly effective and powerful conditioner!
- 2 tablespoons of aloe juice (or the leaf extract).
- 2 tablespoons of sunflower seed oil.
- 1 cup of coconut oil.
- 10 drops of essential lavender oil (optional – for scent and leave-in treatments).
- 10 drops of vanilla extract (optional – for scent and leave-in treatments).
Add in all ingredients, except the vanilla and lavender oil. Mix thoroughly, until you get a smooth and consistent mix.
After that, add in the rest of the ingredients. Mix thoroughly, then apply as conditioner!
Hot Oil Treatment: Coconut Oil + Castor Oil.
This recipe is best for seriously dry scalps and hair.
Use the hot oil treatment enough, and your hair should smooth out well.
Consider it as a plus effect on your hair conditioning routine!
As for castor oil, it contains ricinoleic acid. This is vital for hair maintenance and growth, which is a problem for some dry scalps.
- 1:1 ratio of coconut and castor oil. Add in as much as you need.
Add to the mixtures into a pot. Place it on low heat just enough for the oils to warm up. The low heat ensures that the oil’s nutrients do not get destroyed.
Wet your hair, before applying the mixture.
After the mixture warms up, take it out and apply it. Preen slowly, from the scalp to the tips of your hairs.
After application, wrap a hot towel around your head for 30 minutes. This’ll keep the heat in for a moisturizing effect!
Coconut Oil and Avocado.
Avocadoes are a nutrient dense fatty ingredient. Combined with coconut oil, you’ll moisturize your hair and feed it nutrients at the same time!
This recipe doesn’t just create a conditioner for your hair. It also makes a hair mask, highly suitable for rough curls!
- ¼ cup of coconut oil.
- ¼ cup of coconut milk.
- 1 avocado.
- 1 tablespoon avocado oil.
- 8 drops eucalyptus essential oil.
Add all ingredients into a blender, and then mix thoroughly. After that, add the essential oil in the mix.
Now your mask’s ready! Apply it to your hair, and then keep it on for 25 minutes. Make sure it gets to the smaller sections of your hair.
Wash your hair thoroughly after you’re done!
