This deep conditioner recipe is for growth, moisture and protein. Basically hair needs moisture and protein to survive. Genes, diet, weather are other factors but when it comes to hair care (hair treatment especially), we have to understand the delicate balance of moisture and protein. Too much or too little moisture is bad, so is too little or too much protein is bad for the hair. This deep conditioner recipe is something I came up with to tackle that, and I'm going to be listing their functions so you understand the purpose of each ingredient being in the mix. The great thing about this deep conditioner also is that it makes her soft.
The ingredients are onions, honey, banana, coconut oil, milk.
Banana is rich in potassium that strengthens hair, minimizes breakage by restoring the hair’s natural elasticity, and facilitates repair of damaged hair. It is good for dry, itchy and flaky hair. It is also a great hair softener.
Coconut oil is good for hair loss, damage, dry hair and dandruff. It protects the hair from lice and has high moisture retaining capacity. It also makes the hair soft and gives it the required spf (sun protection factor). Our hair does need protection from the sun.
Honey is a natural humectant. Humectants attract moisture. It is also full of antioxidants and nutrients to feed hair follicles.
Milk repairs damaged hair, hair loss, dry hair. It contains protein and nutrients that have the ability to strengthen and nourish hair cells; and also softens the hair to provide smooth and shiny hair. It moisturizes the hair and makes the scalp healthy.
Onion is good for hair growth especially the edges, and healthy hair. It also good for scalp infections.
