DIY Dry Hair Conditioners....

Dry natural hair needs lots of moisture to prevent breakage and to maintain length. Regular use of deep conditioning treatments that provide protein to weakened spots on your hair shaft and moisturizing hair masks is mandatory for long, healthy natural hair. Most women prefer to buy their products, and natural hair care forums are full of product reviews and shared experiences with one product or another. Every product will work well for some people’s hair, but not every product is meant for everyone. Variables in hair texture, municipal water supplies, hormones, and even weather may produce an entirely different reaction to a product than someone else may have had.

If interested in keeping your hair hydrated and healthy, take a look at these simple DIY dry hair conditioner recipes!

Dry Hair Mask Egg Recipe:
Beat one to two egg yolks with 2-4 tablespoons of water and work through your hair. Leave on hair for no more than 15 minutes.

Dry Hair Mask Avocado and Egg Conditioner:
Peel avocado, remove seed and place in blender. Add 2 large egg yolks and blend well. Massage mixture into hair and scalp.

Dry Hair Yogurt Mask:
Combine one 8oz. container of organic full flat plain yogurt with one tablespoon of honey and one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. Use only organic plain yogurt as most others contain sugar compounds and preservatives. Your dry hair will benefit from the natural milk fats, so avoid nonfat or low fat yogurt when using as a conditioner for your hair.

Dry Hair Banana, Egg and Milk Hair Mask:

Blend together one ripened mashed banana, one egg yolk, 3 tablespoons of honey, 3 tablespoons of milk or cream and 5 tablespoons of argan oil, coconut oil or olive oil.

As you can see, you can easily and inexpensively make your own dry hair conditioners and mask from ingredients that replenish moisture and repair damage to the hair shaft like ripe avocados, ripe bananas, egg yolk, organic mayonnaise, yogurt and nourishing oils. You can whip up these dry conditioners and mask recipes in minutes. All of thee above are non-toxic, chemical free and leave no product residue behind to create further build up!

After applying the conditioner and or mask to your hair, be sure to cover your hair with a plastic cap and leave on for a minimum of 45 minutes (except the egg mask). Avoid using heated caps or hooded dryers. Using heat will then cook the product and leave you with cooked food in your hair. 

When done with the product, throw any remaining away. These DIY conditioners are all natural and contain no preservatives and therefore will go bad quickly. Once rinsed out, your hair should be left feeling soft, full of moisture, body and frizz free! You should notice a marked reduction in breakage after just one treatment. Do these natural dry hair treatments once or twice a week.

Hope you guys found these DIY dry hair recipes to be helpful. With the weather change it's important to not only keep your skin moisturized but your hair and scalp also.

*Remember that sealing oils help lock moisture into the hair strand, so always condition your hair FIRST, then follow up with a sealant. Otherwise you will seal your hair shaft and lock moisture out!  Some of the best oils for dry natural hair are Argan oil (better known as Moroccan oil), avocado oil, almond oil, olive oil and coconut oil if you don’t have allergies.

Until next time and as always...Thanks for checking out my blog: TwithTally!
