Natural Treatments for Your Tresses

Lately, I have been concocting conditioners for my coils. Thanks to an article a dear friend (living in Indonesia) shared with me, entitled: 5 DIY Hair Mask.

The timing of this invaluable information couldn’t have come at a better time, given we’re experiencing an extreme heat wave here in the Pacific Northwest.

…and after spending an afternoon at the lake, my coils needed conditioning more than ever.

~Moisturizing Mask~

2 Tbsp. of Honey

1/2 cup of Rose water

1 (large ripe) Avocado

5 Tbsp. of Yogurt

*In order to make your own Rose water, simply wash off any debris that may have collected onto the petals you’ve picked. Place what you’ve sourced in a pot (one fit for the amount of petals you’ve collected). Pour enough water to slightly cover the petals and then let simmer for 20 minutes.

Many thanks to for illustrating such an easy to follow recipe, along with providing a detailed list of its amazing beneficial properties.

A week prior, I chose to whip up a conditioner that BuzzFeed recommended for curly hair…the results were nourishingly fabulous! Furthermore, I adjusted their recipe slightly, due to the thickness of my coils.

~Coil Intensifying Mask~

1 Egg

4 Tbsp. of Mayo

2 Tbsp. of Castor Oil (Preferably Jamaican Black Castor Oil)

2 Tbsp. of Honey

…and since those worked exceedingly well. I decided to whip up one more.

~Frizz Fighting Mask~

1 (sliced) Banana

5 Tbsp. of Plain Yogurt

2 Tbsp. of Honey

⇒ For each recipe shared above:

I mixed the chosen ingredients in my NutriBullet, and each one came out smooth & creamy. Making application a breeze. Additionally, be certain to rinse your hair well after letting the conditioners set anywhere from 30 minutes up to several hours; which is what I typically do. After rinsing, follow up with a light poo and your choice of leave-in conditioner.

Hopefully you’ll notice and feel the difference in your tresses after trying these simple treatments. Mine have been bouncy, shiny and feel as soft as the belly of a baby rabbit.

That being expressed, I can’t thank my dear friend enough for thinking of me and my collective of coils.

Many thanks my dahling, Jane❣
