I am finding that I really enjoy Hair Pre-Conditioning. You still get that deep conditioning without weighing it down, like can happen with a commercial deep conditioner.
In the past, I have performed 2 different, really simple remedies for you... The first was when I slathered Mayo all over my hair. & I didn't like that because, while it gave my hair TONS of shine, it also made it look dirty. So, next I tried pure Olive Oil. I liked that one a lot better, but it did weigh my hair down a bit. I have found a really nice middle. :D
I didn't measure any of my ingredients out, so here are some approximations.. feel free to adjust as you need.
- 1 1/2 egg yolks (Egg yolks are great for dry hair/skin. If you're not on the dry side, use 1 egg or if you're really oily, use an egg white. Mine egg yolks were what I didn't use from my morning breakfast!)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil (Olive Oil is verrryyy conditioning. Use more or less depending on how dry your hair is)
- 1 teaspoon honey (Honey is a humectant, which means it attracts moisture to your hair.)
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice (I used Lemon Juice for two reasons. The first was because I'm trying to lighten my hair some, and lemon juice works for blondes. It also adds shine to your hair. If you're not blonde, I would suggest using Apple Cider Vinegar for darker hair.)
I noticed right away that my hair felt more moisturized than it did before going in the shower, even while it was wet. Once I dried my hair, it felt super soft without feeling heavy. And the shine is incredible!
I really think that no matter your hair type, you could enjoy a remedy like this... just adjust the ingredients as needed!
Much Love!! Xoxoxo
