YouTube videos have taken over the natural hair world with so many natural hair gurus sharing their hair care tips and routines. Many of the routines highlighted appear to take up a whole lot of time which many of us can't quite find. I struggle with finding time to actually pay enough attention to my hair so when I actually do, I make it count.
Although I depend heavily on the Naturaz hair care line to consistently condition my hair, I recognize that my hair sometimes just needs some extra TLC. So I go back to basics, to my roots and conjure up a home made deep conditioner. I change it up sometimes depending on what ingredients I want to explore. Below I share one of the treatments that I do on my hair that delivers protein, sulfur, selenium, antioxidants, vitamins A, C and E and more to stimulate my follicles, moisturize my scalp and deeply condition my hair.
- Grab a bowl
- Take one egg and mix in the yolk (the yolk is rich in sulfur, selenium, lecithin, protein and more). Do you see twin yolks in the picture above? I saw this phenomenon for the first time a few weeks ago. Exciting!
- Mash one ripe avocado separately then add to the mix
- Add 2 tablespoons of honey
- Add a few drops of peppermint oil (or your favorite essential oil)
- Mix until smooth
- Apply on your hair and massage your scalp pwith the mixture
- Cover your hair with a plastic cap and wrap a thick scarf around to help preserve heat while conditioning. Warmer temperature opens up your cuticle so that your home made deep conditioner can penetrate well.
- Go about your business.
- Rinse your hair after an hour or more and use conditioning products to enhance the hard work your deep condition has already done. Check out Naturaz 101 for more information.
To boost your hard work and to keep your tresses hydrated, drink 7-8 glasses of water every day and rehydrate your hair often with a product that has humectant like glycerin.
This recipe will deeply nourish and condition your hair as well as support healthy hair growth. You can try it at least once or twice a month or as often as time allows!
