Time to Deep Condition

I will deep condition my hair today with products from my kitchen & you can too. This is a great deep condition that you should do at least once a month because sometimes we just don't have the time to do it on a more frequent basis. Not to mention, not everyone needs all this moisture or protein.

What you need:
I mixed, 1 egg yolk (you can also use the entire egg), 1 tbsp of honey, 1 tbsp of olive oil, 1 tbsp of coconut oil & a heaped tbsp of crushed avocado. I massaged from scalp to the end of my hair. For longer tresses, you may double the recipe.

Ingredient benefits:
  • The egg yolk is rich in cholesterol, honey is a natural humectant and will help your hair to retain its necessary moisture. Egg white is rich in protein & Vitamin A. ** remove the chalaza from the egg if you're able to. That's the little semi-solid white things you see after cracking open an egg.**

  • Coconut oil is full of nutrients & proteins necessary for healthy hair growth; it's also great for treating dry scalp (which I have at this moment).

  • Olive oil replaces moisture, elasticity & nutrients lost from your hair being exposed to the elements; it's rich in Vitamin E.

  • Avocado has hydrating benefits & will help do away with dull looking tresses.
What to do:

- For a good deep condition sit under a dryer for 15-20 minutes with a plastic cap on.

- Wash thoroughly.

- Remember to always rinse with cool (not cold) water. This will seal your hair cuticle and help to reveal beautiful, shiny hair.
