Recently, I was reading fellow Jamaican blogger, Candid Cinni's deep conditioner DIY post. I decided to give it a try and tweak it to my liking, using the products available to me. She has natural hair and I grow locs so our product choices would differ but the process would be similar.
I bleached my hair a few weeks ago and I intend to bleach it some more (I won't show pics til I'm comfortable). But ever since I've bleached it, my hair texture has changed. The bleached areas are crunchy and easier to dry out. I knew doing a deep conditioning was what I really needed to restore softness and moisture to my hair. Below I've used a mixture of Organics Olive Oil Cream Moisturizer; an egg; Jamaican Mango & Lime Shea Butter Conditioning Shine; Dr. Miracle's Deep Conditioner (which I mentioned in my Massive Collective Spring Haul); and Jamaican Mango & Lime Protein Conditioner.
After mixing all the ingredients together (a few spoon fulls of each), I applied it to my hair and let it sit for 20 minutes to half and hour before washing it out. In the shower, I thoroughly washed my hair with water and then I shampoo washed it three times with Suave Naturals Daily Clarifying Shampoo. Then, I conditioned with the same Dr. Miracle's Deep Conditioner for about 5 minutes in the shower. After thoroughly washing everything out I dried the excess water out of my hair by wrapping it all up in a t-shirt. After which, I applied a handful of an olive and castor oil mixture to seal.
My hair felt soooooo soft afterwards, unlike how it felt before. I was very pleased with my home-made deep conditioning treatment. I'll be doing this every few weeks from now on. Hope you try it as well.
Peace, Love & Blaze,
