My personal favorite DIY conditioner is an Avocado Deep Conditioner Mask. This is one of the first DIY Deep Conditioners I experimented with and still use to this day. I make this mask at least once a month and apply it on a washday to my hair. Over the years, I alter the recipe now and then and this is my current recipe.
Avocado contains Vitamin A, D, E and B6, which can aid in hair growth and improve the health of your hair. It can give damaged hair a boost, shine and diminishes frizz. For this Mask Recipe you will need:
2 Ripe Avocado(s)
1-2 tablespoons of Olive Oil
1-2 tablespoons of Honey
50 ml coconut oil
This can be altered to the length and density of your hair. My hair is medium density and around mid back length and I usually have just enough to apply this all over my hair generously.
Mash or Blend the avocado until it is a complete smooth texture. Be sure to use ripe avocados otherwise it will be difficult to rinse everything out of your hair. Add the coconut oil and mix it together. In the end, add the olive oil and honey (The tablespoons are a indication, you can use less or more. Not too much honey otherwise it will become sticky).
Divide your hair in four sections and apply the mask generously to each section. I spritzed each section of my hair with warm water to open up the hair follicles.
Once everything is done, cover your hair with a plastic cap and sit for 15-30 minutes. I normally go under the hair steamer for 20 minutes. Afterwards, rinse out everything and wash your hair.
I prefer to do this DIY before shampooing my hair because I do not want the veggie smell to linger in my hair afterwards, but it is also possible to do it after washing your hair.
