I love DIY Deep Conditioners because of the great results on my hair, better than conditioners I purchase. This Honey Deep Conditioner works especially well for the back of my head and crown area because that part is usually dry. The honey is a great humectant, meaning that it attracts moisture and helps prevent the moisture leaving your hair. In addition, Honey is a emollient, which means that it softens the hair and stimulates hair growth. For this deep conditioner, I also add olive oil in the mix for extra antioxidants.
You will need:
– 1-2 tablespoon of honey;
– 6-7 tablespoons of olive oil.
Again, the measurements do not need to be precise, you can adjust them depending on how much hair you have. The more honey, the stickier it gets, so be aware of that.
Mix the ingredients together in a bowl or cup and warm them up in the microwave until the oil is warm but not to hot. (Approx. 20 sec)
Massage the mixture on your scalp, a little at the time, with circular motions using your fingertips but not your nails. Once you have covered your scalp, it is optional to apply the mixture on your hair for extra shine or you can just apply it on your ends. I prefer doing this on dry hair but it is also possible to apply it on damp hair.
Put a shower cap or plastic cap over your head and deep condition for 15 – 45 minutes. Afterwards, you can rinse out, shampoo and style your hair as usual.
