Back to Basics: DIY Conditioners

It's amazing what everyday natural ingredients we can find in our kitchens to help transform our dull and dry curls on washday. Whether you've run out of your favourite conditioner or want to try a more natural route, then why not DIY.

Banana Colada
Protein Sensitive DIY Conditioner

A moisturising protein sensitive conditioner that everyone can use. Feel free to adjust the qualities to how much you will need for your hair. 

You will need:
1 Banana
1/2 a can of Coconut milk
1 Cup of Aloe Vera juice
3 tablespoons of Olive Oil
  1. Mix all ingredients throughly using a blender.
  2. Part hair into sections and apply this conditioning recipe from root to tip paying extra attention to your ends. 
  3. Cover your curly tresses with a shower cap, plastic bag or cling film/saran wrap and condition for 30 minutes.
  4. Rinse out and proceed with styling.
 
  • Bananas are great for reducing frizz and improving moisture content in your hair.
  • Aloe Vera restores strength to your hair, soothes your scalp, conditions and promotes shine and reduces frizz. 
  • Coconut milk is a fatty substance that will give strength to your tresses while nourishing and moisturising.
  • Olive softens and moisturises dry hair. Also promoting shine and reduces frizz.
*Side note: Coconut and banana can sometimes be an irritant to most people. So please test on a small section of hair first*
What are some of your favourite DIY conditioners?
Naturally yours,
Kaisha
