Hello everyone! I got back in the kitchen yesterday and did some mixing! I was just going to do a simple honey and olive oil conditioner, but I saw two bananas getting old, and thought a DC would be a better use for them! Well, honestly I thought about banana bread first, but 2 just isn’t enough, so DC it was! If you don’t know, bananas are a great ingredient for natural hair! Bananas help restore moisture and protect the elasticity of the hair, reducing breakage and split ends. Bananas also add shine and volume.
I also added Brahmi powder and Bringrahj oil to my mix because I’ve been seriously slacking with the ayurvedic love for my hair. Brahmi is known to strengthen hair roots to reduce shedding, controls premature graying, and controls dandruff when used on the scalp. Bhringraj helps stimulate hair growth, and strengthens hair roots. Here is the recipe I made up, y’all know I never measure.
Hello everyone! Nothing I love more than a good D.I.Y project! Since I’ve started Ayurvedic Challenge 2012, I’ve had to make more of my hair products myself (of course)! I wanted my oil/honey deep conditioning treatment to be a bit more manageable, and came up with the idea to whip the honey and oil together until it solidified. This was a recipe I was particularly happy with!
Hello everyone!! So I finally tried an avocado conditioner! I knew it would be beneficial, but I love avocados too much not to eat them. I finally made the committment to save one for this conditioner.
1 ripe avocado
1 Tablespoon of olive oil
1 Tablespoon of honey
2 Tablespoons of aloe vera juice
Here’s what the final mixture looked like. Blech.
I applied the conditioner to my damp, sectioned hair, and put on a plastic cap and a towel. Then I left it on for about 45 minutes to an hour. Then I rinsed out in the shower, and voila!
I’m not sure if these pictures do it justice, but my hair was SO soft! It just had that pure, light softness that I rarely get much anymore. There was nothing coating it, nothing weighing it down. I will DEFINITELY be using this conditioner again. The recipe makes a surprising amount of conditioner, too. I had enough for my whole head, plus almost half the bowl! For those that like to mix it up at home, you can add whatever you like to this conditioner! Add a little yogurt, or coconut milk for protein, Or an essential oil like Tea Tree for scalp health. This is an extremely versatile recipe, and I’ll definitely be experimenting with it again!
