Deep Hair Conditioner
This DIY deep hair conditioner is loaded with coconut oil, shea butter, and argan oil to nourish your hair and revitalize it from the inside out.
Yield: 1 application
Melt coconut oil and shea butter together in microwave or double boiler (I find a Pyrex measuring cup in a saucepan of hot water works well.)
Let mixture cool until almost room temperature, then add the argan oil.
With a hand mixer, whip mixture together for 3–5 minutes (transfer to a larger bowl, if needed, to accommodate the hand mixer). You'll get a creamy texture that's much easier to apply than melted oil.
Comb through clean, dry hair and let sit for 30 minutes. Rinse hair and shampoo as normal.
These are rich oils so you might need to shampoo more than once to remove all of the residue. If you prefer to condition without added oils, try a honey hair mask or one with pumpkin or avocado.
If you have seriously dry hair, feel free to double or even triple this recipe and store the extra in an airtight container in the bathroom for weekly use. It should stay good for a year as long as you're careful not to get any water in it. If you do, your conditioner may go bad within a few days and you'll need to make a fresh batch.
