My Amazing Natural Hair Journey

Homemade Hair Products which work

There’s a lot of information out there on homemade hair products. You can find recipes via YouTube, books or the ‘net. If you’ve ever thought that you want to know if some of these work, I can help you with it. Here are a few of my favorite natural recipes that produce great results and won’t break your budget.

  • Protein deep conditioner:
  • Ingredients: plain yogurt, mayo, olive oil, 1 egg and avocado. I combine all of these in a blender or simply stir. There are times I’ve used only mayo and olive oil and it too works well. It leaves my hair nice and soft, but the main reason I use is because my  hair needs protein so this is a nice shot of that.
  • Conditioning hair refresher:
  • Ingredients: 1/4 cup water, 2-tbsp VO5, Suave or White Rain conditioner; 1 tbsp each olive, castor, coconut, jojoba and sweet almond oil; plus a drop of lavender oil. You’ll notice I’m a big fan of “natural” oils. Other varieties may work, but I can’t speak to it. I’m a big advocate of that which is pure. I use this when first setting my flat twists or re-setting each night. It adds light oil and needed moisture to help maintain and condition my style.
  • Preconditioning wash conditioner:
  • Ingredients: add coconut, olive and castor oil to tresses and let remain on for at least 1 hour, or for really deep conditioning add overnight; can also add unrefined shea butter for extra deep conditioning. Afterward I proceed to conditioner wash as usual.

There are many other natural ingredients on the market, but this is what’s been tried and true for me.
