I started my natural hair journey about 3 years ago and my only regret is that I didn’t start sooner. During this time I have come to know my hair, what it likes, what it craves and how to fix any ‘issues’ that may arise with it. Yes folks my hair and I have a very special relationship… 🙂  It’s quite difficult to find good, natural hair care products at a reasonable price (especially here in Europe) so I just started making my own.

For the most part I like to keep things simple in my life. My hair care regimen is no exception.

I have received a lot of requests for my homemade deep conditioner recipe. It’s such a simple formula I never actually thought of posting it here on Natural Fit Foodie. What I especially love about this homemade deep conditioner recipe is that I always have all the ingredients on hand and I am pretty sure that you will too.

Homemade Deep Conditioner ingredient benefits

Greek Yogurt – provides protein to strengthen, moisturize and reduce frizz

Raw Honey – is a natural humectant – which means it attracts and locks in moisture. Honey softens and smooths hair, boosts hair growth and increases shine

Coconut Oil – strengthens and moisturises

Lemon juice – closes hair shaft and makes hair shine

Lavender Essential Oil – great for all hair types. It helps control hair breakage and improves hair growth. Also great for dandruff.

Tea Tree Essential Oil –  is a great moisturizer for the hair. It unblocks the sebaceous glands and encourages the flow of the scalp’s own moisturizing oils while clearing away dead skin cells. Tea tree oil mixed with other essential oils is especially good as a scalp treatment for relieving dandruff.

 

I have experimented with many homemade deep conditioner recipes in the past, especially high protein treatments containing eggs and mayonnaise but my hair just wasn’t feeling those. I had sort of given up on protein treatments, until I whipped up this homemade deep conditioner. The greek yogurt seems to provide just the right amount of protein. This Homemade Deep Conditioner is the one for me at the moment. My hair is nourished and revitalized with each and every use. If you haven’t had success with homemade deep conditioners in the past try this one, and if you do please come back and let me know how you liked it in the comment section.

Note regarding ingredients:

How much you’ll need will depend on the length and thickness of your hair. My hair is pretty thick so I find that I need a lot to coat it well. To be honest I usually wing it with the measurements but I have still attempted to put together a recipe for you below.

      Hi Bella. I would advise you make enough for one use. You can apply it to your whole hair.

    Definitely going to give it a try! But do you put on the deep conditioner on clean hair, i.e. wash hair and apply deep conditioner to damp hair, or apply deep conditioner and wash with shampoo afterwards? Thanks! 🙂

          As often as you like Kirsten. It depends on the present state of your hair, how often you cleanse your hair etc. As it is a deep conditioner I typically use it weekly or bi weekly 🙂

    Hello, this is the first homemade deep conditioner recipe that I’ve seen, and I have a question:
    How strong is the scent that this leaves on your hair? In my profession, I need to be aware of keeping “scent-free” but do want to try homemade body care. Thanks 🙂

      Hi Jo’s. I do not find this conditioner leaves a strong scent. You can eliminate the essential oils if you wish though.

    I tried this toda and it was amazing on my hair. I have 4C which makes everything an experiment but this is the first time I’ve tried a homemade conditioner and I love it. I replaced the essentail oils with Argan Oil. Thank you for sharing this with us.
