I’ve done a pretty good job lately with my hair conditioning rituals. I’ve had past hair mistakes that resulted in my hair needing some serious help. I learned about this DIY Coconut Rose Oil Conditioner recipe by beauty expert Wendy Rose Gould for hair tutorial and advice site, Latest-Hairstyles.com. She too needed some hair resuscitation and was on a mission to find the best products to help.
“I found some good ones, of course, but as a DIY-er, I also concocted my own deep conditioner. I consider this DIY hair conditioner a moisture bomb, of sorts, as it’s loaded with hair-loving oils and butter. To give it an extra personal twist, I even added a little bit of rose oil.”
This multipurpose natural recipe acts as a hair mask, deep conditioner & leave-in treatment.
Here’s What You Need:
- 5 Tbs Shea Butter
- 3 Tbs. Coconut Oil
- 1 tsp. Dr. Bronners’ Pure Castille Soap
- 1 tsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 15 drops 100% Camellia Seed Oil
- 6 Drops of Rose Essential Oil (or scented to preference)
Step 1: Combine three tablespoons of shea butter and three tablespoons of coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave until everything’s melted and mix well.
Step 2: Add your castille soap, olive oil, camellia seed oil and rose scent. The castille soap will help during the rinsing process, the camellia seed oil will soften, and the coconut oil, shea butter and olive oil will provide intense moisture to restore shine and strength to your hair. The rose scent isn’t necessary, but it’ll add a little bit of rose fragrance if you’re into it.
Step 3: Place the mixture into the fridge or freezer until it’s cool, but not solid.
Step 4: Add your remaining two tablespoons of shea butter to the mixture and whip with a hand mixer. It’ll turn into a normal, conditioner-like consistency.
Step 5: Place in a container and date it. The conditioner should last up to 30 days.
You can use this hair conditioner in multiple ways!
Deep Conditioner: After shampooing, apply the DIY conditioner. Let it set for three to five minutes, then rinse. Consider this a deep conditioner and only use it once or twice a week.
Conditioning Mask: This is my favorite way to use the conditioner. Simply apply to ends of dry hair and let it set for 15 to 20 minutes before shampooing.
Leave-In Conditioner: If you have very dry hair, or coarse/textured hair, this is a good option. Rub a dime-sized amount of the conditioner into your hands and apply to your ends of damp hair. Style as normal. You can also apply to the ends of day two or three hair for a little bit of a boost.
