Quieres frutas? Fruit and Oil Deep Hair Conditioner

Guest Blogger: Sirus
His Obsession (turned mine:-): Fruit and Oil Deep Hair Conditioner

As a natural hair enthusiast, I use this recipe specifically for the nutritional benefits. Egg yolks are protein so it strengthens. Rosemary oil is an antibacterial so it cleans. Olive oil and coconut oil provide additional moisture so it penetrates the hair shaft. Bananas are full of potassium, antioxidants and radicals that help prevent itchy, dry scalp. While the avocado is a superfood containing protein, potassium and oleic acid it is great for promoting hair growth. If you want you can actually skip the banana and the olive oil since avocados contain the nutrition value as well. The apple cider vinegar is a special touch since diluting it with water will restore the pH balance of the hair.

Fruit and Oil Deep Conditioner:
1 avocado mashed
1 banana mashed
1 egg yolk beaten
2 tsp rosemary oil
2 tsp coconut oil
1 tbsp olive oil
1/3 whole milk
Rinse:
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup water

Application Method:
  1. Whisk all ingredients together starting with the fruit, milk, oils, and eggs until smooth. Sit aside.
  2. Wash hair with a slightly mild deep cleansing or clarifying shampoo. Rinse with lukewarm water.
  3. Apply mixture to entire hair starting from the root to the tip and apply a plastic cap onto entire hair
  4. Sit under hooded dryer with medium to high heat for 30-45 minutes.
  5. First Rinse: Rinse hair with 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar diluted with 1/2 cup water. Second Rinse: Rinse hair with lukewarm water.
  6. Detangle hair with wide tooth comb and proceed with normal styling. Additional products is not needed unless styling with hot tools.

People who struggle with trying to maintain moisture and prevent breakage will see at least 90% of less breakage. And did I mention the fact that I use very minimal products to keep my hair soft and moisturized while maintaining a great curl definition. Hello!
