When I first went natural I was strictly a DIY girl. I experimented with all sorts of butters, oils, powders, etc. I haven’t done a DIY hair mix in a long time but I plan on slowly incorporating more in my natural hair routine.
Coconut is something I always used in my beauty routine. I wrote an article all about the benefits of coconut oil. This recipe is strictly coconut from the meat, oil, and milk. Coconuts have so many amazing benefits here are just a few:
Coconut Manna/ Butter– moisturizes and prevents hair fall. Strengthens hair follicles and repairs damage and prevents further damage made by chemicals, heat, and other harsh treatments.
Coconut Oil– penetrates the hair shaft bringing in additional moisture and shine
Coconut Milk– nourishes hair providing natural moisture from root to tip. Stimulates hair for healthy strong growth.
DIY Coconut Conditioner Recipe
1/2 cup Coconut Manna
2 tablespoon Coconut Oil
1/2 cup Coconut Milk
I didn’t accurately take measurements. Usually I just eye ball it and depending on the length of your hair is how much you need for successful application. You can use this as a hot oil treatment, pre-poo, or deep conditioner. Watch the video below to see how I made my mixture and applied it to my hair.
