Best 5 Homemade Hair Conditioners

By Edited Mar 22, 2016 1 2

Brand name conditioners have us fooled. They deliver the results we want to see but, without knowing it, we are covering our scalps with chemicals that are less than beneficial for our hair or health. Homemade conditions are not only better for our hair, but are better for our budgets. Some of the more expensive conditioners cost upwards of 30 dollars a bottle and deliver the same results as homemade recipes. We also can’t forget that without the chemicals and plastic containers, making your own conditioner is eco-friendly, which is a big plus in today’s economy. Below are some of the best, deep conditioning recipes known! 

 

Frizz Ease

¼ c Mayonnaise

½ Avocado

¼c Vinegar (optional)

In a blender, blend the mayonnaise and half of an avocado until you have a conditioner-like texture. As you would a regular conditioner, use a few tablespoons of the mixture and keep the rest in the fridge for the next time you wash your hair. The deep conditioning method is to dampen your hair with warm water, gently squeezing out additional water, and massage all of the conditioner through your hair. Twist your hair into a bun on top of your head and let it sit for between forty minutes and an hour. Once that time has elapsed, rinse it out like you would a normal conditioner. If you have oily hair or residual buildup from hair products, rinse your hair with the vinegar. If you don’t have oily hair, skip this step. Just before you get out of the shower, whether you have oily hair or not, rinse with the coldest water you can stand. Dry and style your new, luscious locks as you normally would. Enjoy!

 

Soothing

1 Avocado

1c Coconut Milk

A few drops of essential oil (optional) (lavender, vanilla, jojoba, etc.)

 

In a small bowl, mash the avocado until it’s creamy. Add the coconut milk to the bowl and stir until you have a smooth mixture. You may want to mix the two ingredients in a blender for faster preparation. Dampen your hair with warm water, gently squeezing out the additional, and massage all of the conditioner through your hair and into your scalp for the full moisturizing benefits. Twist your hair into a bun on top of your head and secure with a fabric covered elastic as to not damage hair upon removal of the elastic. Let it sit for about twenty-five minutes. Once that time has elapsed, rinse it out like you would a normal conditioner. Just before you get out of the shower, rinse your hair with the coldest water you can stand. Dry and style your hydrated hair as usual. Enjoy!

 

Hydrator

1 Egg

2 t Olive oil (avocado oil, vegetable oil, jojoba oil optional)

¼c Vinegar

Lightly beat the egg and the olive oil together. Use as you would a regular conditioner, use just a few tablespoons of the mixture and keep the rest in the fridge for the next time you wash your hair. To deeply condition your hair, dampen it with cool water, gently squeezing out the extra so it doesn’t drip, and massage all of the conditioner through your damp hair. Twist your hair into a bun on top of your head and let it sit for half an hour. Once that time has passed, rinse it out like you would a normal conditioner. If you have oily hair or residual buildup from hair products rinse your hair with the vinegar. If you don’t have oily hair, skip this step. Just before you get out of the shower, whether you have oily hair or not, rinse with the coldest water you can stand. Dry and style your silky new tresses as usual. Enjoy!

 

Simply Luscious

1c Mayonnaise

1c Vinegar

Simply massage the mayonnaise into your damp hair and wrap into a bun, securing it on top of your head. Let it sit for up to fory-five minutes and then rinse out with warm water. Pour the vinegar into your hair and gently massage (for extra volume substitute beer for vinegar). Rinse the vinegar out of your hair with the coldest water you can stand. This leaves it extra glossy and shiny! Enjoy!

 

 

Conditioner 29

1 Avocado

2 Egg Yolks

2 t Olive oil

1 t Favorite scented oil

1t Fresh lemon juice

1c Beer (optional)

Start by beating the egg yolks until they begin to thicken. Slowly beat the lemon juice into the egg yolk and beat until a very thick, conditioner-like texture is achieved. Add the oils and beat until combined.  In a separate bowl, or for quicker preparation, the blender, mash the avocado until a smooth buttery texture is achieved. Gently mix the avocado with the egg yolk mixture. This makes a lot of conditioner so if you have long hair, you can use all of it but for us shorter hair girls using half of it works perfectly and we get to use it twice! Into dry or damp hair pour half of the mixture. Massage for five to seven minutes, insuring every strand is covered by the conditioner. Wrap up in a bun and secure with a clip or elastic. For this conditioner there are two options. One, leave hair uncover and rinse out after twenty minutes. Two, wrap your hair with saran wrap and leave in for one to two hours. When it’s time to remove the conditioner, rinse out with warm water and follow by cold water. Pour the beer through your hair and massage gently. Rinse again with cold water and style as usual. Enjoy your new, silky hair!

I love all of these ideas, but is there a way to combat the smell that the mayonnaise and vinegar leave on your head after washing your hair?

When I use the mayonnaise conditioner I often rub a coin size amount of regular conditioner in my hair and then rinse it out. I know it goes against the point of making your own conditioner but it leaves your hair smelling nice and clean.
