A couple weeks ago I wrote a post about my new love for DIY hair wash and conditioner. (If you missed that post, you can find it HERE.) The love affair continues, and I have since tweaked the Apple Cider Vinegar conditioner formula and come up with something even more delicious. The magic ingredient… Belle Coco!
This new recipe is excellent for thick dry hair like mine. It adds a wonderful burst of moisture, my waves are more alive and shinier than ever, and the essential oils leave you smelling divine.
Ultra Moisturizing DIY Conditioner
- 2 Tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar (I recommend Bragg Organic Raw Unfiltered)
- 5 drops of lavender essential oil
- 5 drops of melaleuca essential oil
- 5 drops of sweet orange essential oil
- 1 tsp of Belle Coco Nourishing Oil
- 8 oz of filtered water
You can purchase Belle Coco Nourishing Oil HERE.
Contact me to talk about essential oils.
Place all ingredients in a bottle and shake vigorously to blend.
Use after washing hair with diluted baking soda formula. Squeeze conditioner all over wet hair from root to tip (I have long hair and use about 1/4 of my bottle with each treatment). Massage scalp and comb conditioner through. Rinse thoroughly.
For a natural wavy look, towel dry, apply a small amount of Belle Coco to ends for added moisture, and allow hair to air dry naturally.
Give this DIY conditioner a try and let me know how it works out in the comments below. And of course feel free to ask any questions.
