DIY Deep Conditioning for Natural Hair at Home


Deep conditioning is a recommended treatment for all hair types. Indeed, it is not just for those who have dry, brittle or unmanageable hair. Even if you have healthy hair now, you need to set aside time to deep condition hair as part of your hair care and maintenance routine, especially if you want to keep your locks healthy. But if you are worried that you do not have the time or resources to go to a salon for a deep conditioning treatment, there is no need to worry. You can do your own treatment and enjoy the same benefits even at the comfort of your own home!


Regular deep conditioning offers wonderful benefits to your hair and is a must if you want to keep those strands healthy. Unlike other hair treatments, it penetrates deep into the cuticle layer to ensure strands are nourished and repaired from within. 

DIY Deep Conditioning Recipes

When doing your deep conditioning treatment at home, you can opt to purchase a deep conditioner for ease of application. But you can also try preparing some homemade deep conditioner recipes (if you have time). Opting for natural products further enhance the benefits of the treatment, so make sure you try out any of these recipes. 

DIY Deep Conditioning Natural Hair at Home

If you want to minimize tangling problems on your hair, you will need the following ingredients for this deep conditioner recipe: 
  • one sliced avocado
  • half a cup of shea butter 
  • 3-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup of olive oil. 

Mix all ingredients into a blender. You are aiming for a thick and heavy consistency, but feel free to adjust the amount of olive oil you add into the mixture. Once it is ready, simply apply it to the hair and leave it on for at least 30 minutes for complete absorption. When the time is over, rinse thoroughly. 

If strengthening is what you’re after, you should mix 4 tablespoons of coconut oil and 2 tablespoons of pure honey into a cup. Then, place the cup with the two ingredients above a bowl of hot water. Leave it there for a few minutes or until it is warm. You must then apply this mixture into your hair (it must be washed) and put on a shower cap to let the mixture sit. Do not forget to wrap a towel underneath the cap so it does not drip off. You can leave the mixture for about 20 minutes but do not completely rinse off the mixture. Leave about 10% of it onto your hair for maximum results.

How to Apply

Before you get started, it is important to gather all of the essential items you need to apply deep conditioner at home. In addition to your deep conditioner, you will need a shower cap, clips, comb, and a towel. 

Once you have the supplies ready, start off by combing the hair to get rid of any tangles. Wash hair with shampoo to make sure it is clean. Dry your hair and comb it again before dividing it into about six sections (you can do more if you have thicker hair, though). Use your clips to secure those sections except one of which you will start working on first. Sectioning the hair is an important step to ensure that every strand is treated. 

When applying the deep conditioner, start at the scalp and go all the way down. Once you had the entire length of hair covered, lay that particular section of hair against the head and repeat application on that same section. This will ensure that any piece of strand you’ve missed will be covered too. Do the same process on all of the other sections of hair.

Once you have finished applying the conditioner onto the hair, put on a shower cap. Leave the mixture on for as long as recommended. When that time is over, remove the shower cap and use cool water for the final rinse. 

Do you undergo regular deep conditioning treatment? If yes, what benefits have you experienced?

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs Hi Loves, I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation.

Lupita Nyong'o Attacked by Dencia (Maker of Whitenicious Bleaching Cream)

Lupita Nyong’o, the gracious black beauty was an honoree at the Essence Women Luncheon a few days ago. In her speech, revealed her struggles being a black girl to womanhood and how images of the supermodel Alek Wek made her see beauty in herself as they both shared the same 'midnight' complexion. She then pulled out a letter a fan wrote to her thanking her for appearing on the scene just in time before she ordered Decia's Whitencious bleaching cream.  “Dear Lupita,” it reads, “I think you’re really lucky to be this Black but yet this successful in Hollywood overnight. I was just about to buy Dencia’s Whitenicious cream to lighten my skin when you appeared on the world map and saved me.” Who or what is Decia's Whitencious Cream you might ask? Dencia is the Cameroonian-Nigerian singer 'was' of dark complexion but been using bleaching cream to lighten her skin to a 'very pale' complexion. Now I urge you to look up FOOL in the dictionary and her pale
