Green Deep-Conditioning Techniques

Method #1: Straight up plain ol’ Coconut oil

Coconut oil

Melt it in your hands (it melts VERY quickly, and turns into a consistency similar to mineral oil), and rub it through your hair.

Tie your hair up and leave it for at least 3 hours, preferably under a shower cap so that the heat and humidity helps the coconut oil penetrate your hair.

(Not what coconut oil looks like. It is not milky.)

Method #2: Avocado + Coconut Milk & Oil

Throw the following into a blender until it’s smooth, and then let it soak in for at least an hour or two.

1 mashed avocado
2 tbsp coconut oil

This works, because coconut oil has a different molecular structure that actually penetrates your hair and adds protein, unlike mineral oil.

The avocado is just extra to help it be like a moisturizing paste rather than like an oil in Method #1.

That looks so yummy.

Method #3: Yoghurt and Honey

3 tbsp plain yoghurt — I had to wrestle some away from BF. He’s a yoghurt fiend.
¼ cup honey

This is extra moisturizing (and tasty!), so it’s recommended for dry, damaged hair types.

Just so you know, you can also use yoghurt for your face as a brightening facial. 🙂 FYI.

Method #4: Argan or Jojoba Oil

Tons of girls swear by this. I use argan oil on my face, but it’s too expensive to put on my hair. Perhaps my scalp in the front where it gets dry.

Any other simple, green deep conditioning techniques?
