Hair is not dead, it is alive and hair likes to drink water, hair also likes to absorb all-natural ingredients. Since hair is growing from the scalp it is alive.

African American's natural hair gets dry if it's not treated with a deep conditioner at least every two weeks. Homemade deep conditioning treatments on natural hair can also help with protecting the ends of your hair; this will give you length retention. DIY (do it yourself) homemade conditioner for natural hair made in a blender is healthy for your hair, due to the authentic all-natural ingredients.


  • Avocado, 1 whole
  • Egg yolks, 2
  • Banana, 1 whole
  • Yogurt, plain
  • Coconut milk, canned
  • Jojoba oil
  • Olive oil

Peel the avocado and put the pieces of the avocado into the blender. If you don't have a blender, you can blend all the ingredients with a fork. After putting the avocado into the blender include the other ingredients also; 2 egg yolks (don't use the eggs whites), 2 table spoons of yogurt, 2 tablespoons coconut milk, 1 teaspoon of Jojoba oil, and 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Mix all these ingredients in the blender for only 3-5 seconds.

You can now place your homemade conditioner onto your hair after shampooing the hair first. After applying the deep conditioner onto the hair, place a shower cap or a plastic bag onto the hair and leave it on for 1 or 2 hours. This conditioning process will seal the moisture into the hair shaft, which will promote longer healthier hair.
