The Best Home-Made Hair Conditioner Recipe!


All Natural Hair Care

This home-made hair conditioning treatment combines only the best ingredients proven to nourish and rejuvenate the hair. Not only is this hair conditioning treatment good for hair, it ensures your hair is visibly soft and luxurious. The treatment contains specially selected ingredients that provide a spectrum of benefits. Some of these benefits include fortifying and strengthening the hair, moisturizing and protecting elasticity, controlling dandruff, and promoting natural hair growth to create a gorgeous shiny mane.

Beneficial Ingredients for Healthy Hair

  • The first ingredient in this natural hair conditioning treatment is avocado. Avocado provides essential vitamins and minerals that are essential for healthy hair. It contains B vitamins, beta-carotene, copper, vitamin E, vitamin C, and essential fatty acids, all of which will strengthen and fortify.
  • A ripe banana is included in the recipe to help soften hair and protect it’s natural elasticity. Bananas are rich in potassium, natural oils, carbohydrates and vitamins, that help will not only bring out the shine, but will help control dandruff and promote hair growth.
  • Coconut milk in the mixture also helps control dandruff and promote hair growth, and the protein and other nutrients will make hair soft.
  • The addition of olive oil will moisturize dry damaged hair and is one of the best sources of omega-9 fatty acids.
  • Egg yolks also have naturally occurring fatty acts and are naturally rich in vitamin A, D, E and the B vitamins, which are all beneficial for improving hair's appearance.
  • For people with excessive oily hair egg whites can be applied to the roots. Egg whites are full of bacteria-eating enzymes that will help get rid of unnecessary dirt and oils.
  • Apple cider vinegar added to the mixture kills germs and helps to remove any excess buildup of previous shampoos, or conditioners. This tends to make the hair lighter, shinier, and easier to manage.
  • Lemon juice is added to add an extra fight against dandruff and will also help to strengthen hair roots.
  • Beer contains proteins that are thought to repair hair while the sugars in the beer are believed to make hair shiny by tightening the hair cuticles.
  • Finally, a drop or two of the essential oil lavender is very relaxing and calming to the body and mind and will add that luxurious touch to this pampering hair care treatment.

The Complete All-Natural Treatment Conditioner

  • 1 avocado (peeled and mashed)
  • 1 small ripe banana
  • ½ cup of coconut milk
  • ½ cup of beer (flat)
  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
  • 2 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
  • 2 drops of lavender or rose essential oil for fragrance (optional)

Mash all ingredients together until smooth and the consistency of a paste. Adjust consistency of mixture with more coconut milk if necessary. After shampooing and rinsing, part your hair into small sections and apply the conditioning treatment from hair roots to ends. Put shower cap on and cover with a towel to seal in treatment. Leave in for 20-30 minutes and take this time to treat yourself to some relaxation. Read a good book and listen to your favorite music, or savor some peace and quiet.

Once completed unwrap your newly conditioned hair. Rinse out the mixture and then lightly shampoo and condition as usual. Store left over all-natural contitioner in the fridge for up to one week. Use it to repeat the treatment for an extreme hair boost!

Wow. Thanks for sharing this hub. I have been looking for natural recipes for my hair; I'll definitely try out your ideas.

Sounds like a very healthy natural Hair conditioner. Nice recipe that I like to try.

Amethystraven from California on July 19, 2012:

That's a great recipe. I use organic coconut oil and honey. I let it sit in my hair for about a half hour or so. Then I use Dr. Bronner's organic peppermint Castile liquid soap to wash. My hair loves that recipe. I sometimes switch between coconut oil and olive oil depending on what's in the cupboard. I will share this recipe.

I really like ingredients that you used, i tried some of them in various conditioners I made, but never heard for this recipe. It sounds great and I will share it.

Laura Wolfhart on July 17, 2012:

Wow this looks great!! Although I think I'll replace the olive oil with argan oil (I have one from Pro Naturals that has been unbelievably good on my dry hair!!!). It's much lighter on my hair and doesn't leave it greasy afterwards. Last time I used olive oil it just left my hair greasy and heavy :/ But must try this out either way!

My new shampoo actually has components of avocado in it.. I can really tell the difference and I have curls so I need lots of moisture! Great hub!

Kevin J Timothy from Tampa, FL on July 02, 2012:

Thanks! I'll direct my wife to this recipe. Maybe after we make it I'll sneak in the fridge to try some. I keep my hair relatively short but I'm just intrigued by the concoction.

Can't wait to try this out. Thanks for the advice!

Thank you so much for commenting and for adding that important bit of information about the beer Lisas-thoughts101!

Lisas-thoughts101 from Northeast Texas on May 17, 2012:

Sturgeoni, great hub, can't wait to try it. If you use 2 cups beer and boil it down to 1/2 cup and let it cool, you will boil out all the alcohol which is what dries out the hair. You will still have the ingredients that are so beneficial for building strength and giving shine to hair. Hope you don't mind my adding this tidbit. Thanks so much for the great conditioner recipe!! Voted up and interesting. Also, following..
