A New PreConditioner!

It's been awhile since I have provided you with an actual beauty remedy, and I performed one this morning... so I would like to share it!

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

Perfect Pre-Conditioner
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.)
Mix all ingredients in a small container and then apply to your hair, concentrating on the ends.  Because the mixture is a little on the runny side from the oil, I used a hair color brush. Once I was done, I ended up just tying my hair back, but I think using a warm towel (maybe one that's a little damp) is a good suggestion.  This will open the cuticle and further deepen the conditioning.  The reason why I said to use a damp towel is because this will dry in your hair (and it kind of makes it hard to get out) ... so I just feel if it was kept a little wet, it'll keep the mixture damp.  You'll then want to leave it on for about 30-40 minutes and then you can rinse.  Anyways, after rinsing your hair, you just wash and condition as normal.

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


  1. Very cool conditioner, will have to try it out. Found your blog on blog hop and followed :)

    Send the love back :)

  2. Following from iFiH. Great blog. I sometimes rinse my hair with a little vinegar after shampooing. The smell goes once it dries! It gets a great shine and clean feel. A little baking soda mixed into shampoo just before applying gets out any grease and build up of products. I love natural solutions too :)
