Homemade Conditioners

Just got off the phone with an old and very dear friend that said:
"I need good conditioner that doesn't cost me a lot! My hair is dry" :(  Your wish is my command!

Here are a couple Homemade Conditioner recipes that I found on http://www.recipes4living.com/

Coconut Avocado Therapy

The creamy consistency of both ingredients infuse your hair with moisture.

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado, mashed (Going bad? Use for this instead of trashing)
  • Coconut milk (Find this on clearance- even if expired, no problem- don't pay $3 a can for it!)
Combine mashed avocado with some coconut milk. Comb it through the hair and let sit for 10-15 minutes, rinse out. 

Rosemary-Honey Hair Conditioner

The extremes of heat and cold we endure throughout winter can make even the greatest of hair look and feel like straw. This nourishing conditioner blends honey for shine; olive oil for moisture and essential oil of rosemary to stimulate hair growth.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 C. honey
  • 1/4 C. warmed olive oil (2 Tbs. for normal to oily hair)
  • 4 drops of essential oil of rosemary
  • 1 tsp. xanthum gum (available in health food stores)

Place all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix thoroughly. Pour into a clean plastic bottle with a tight fitting stopper or lid. Apply a small amount at a time to slightly dampened hair. Massage scalp and work mixture through hair until completely coated. Cover hair with a warm towel (towel can be heated in a microwave or dryer) or shower cap; leave on to nourish and condition for 30 minutes. Remove towel or shower cap; shampoo lightly and rinse with cool water. Dry as normal and enjoy shinier, softer and healthier hair the natural way.

MAYONAISE

Ingredients

  • 1/2 C. mayonnaise
Depending on the length of your hair, apply approximately 1/2 C. of mayonnaise to your dry hair. Work into hair really well and then cover your hair with a plastic bag, allowing to set for about 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and then shampoo as usual. 


Hope one of these helps!!!
