DIY: Natural Deep Hair Conditioner

diy hair conditioner

Did you know that you can use essential oils for hair? I kid you not, I sound like a hippie or like a woo woo person when people ask what I use my oils for. 

Hmmm....let's see. I use them to clean my floors, in my laundry, to clean my wood furniture, put in my lotion, diffuse in my car, put in my drinks, use to keep my family well, on my pets, on the kiddos of course....

And then when I come to, I realize the person I am talking to is staring at me with a "is she serious?" look. But I am pretty used to that by now, so I just smile and continue on talking about my unicorn tears and carry on. 

So its obvious that I am into finding natural ways to provide for my family. And that's really in all aspects. I look for and research what the best products out there are and if I can make it at home, then I do! 

Certain essential oils can promote healthy - looking hair. While many products on the market are filled with chemicals, using essential oils for hair provides you with a safe, natural way to support those beautiful locks. Or in my case, work on getting them back to being beautiful locks. So how do we do this? 

You just need a few ingredients and your choice of essential oils. doTERRA is my preference of oil and I love Peppermint and Geranium. This is really easy to do at home!
 

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons coconut oil

1 tablespoon olive oil

8 drops doTERRA essential oils

Stand or hand mixer

 

A few great essential oils for your hair include: Lavender, Peppermint, Rosemary, Geranium, and Clary Sage. You can use one or all five of the essential oils in your deep conditioner.

 

Directions:

  1. Put coconut oil, olive oil, and essential oils in mixing bowl.
  2. Mix on medium/high speed for 5 minutes or until ingredients are whipped to a thick and creamy consistency.
  3. Once whipped, apply to clean dry hair.
  4. Comb through with wide tooth comb to evenly distribute.
  5. Let sit 15-20 minutes. Rinse, shampoo and style as desired.
  6. Repeat once a week or as often as desired. 

Enjoy your soft, healthy, and chemical-free hair! Happy Conditioning!
