A DIY deep conditioner is a must if you have long hair! I Love the way my long mane feels after using this use this homemade deep conditioner recipe. It’s simple and affordable enough to make some to share too. Just find some glass containers and you’ve got a lovely gift idea for your essential oil-loving, long-haired friends.
DIY Deep Conditioner
- 1/4 cup Olive Oil
- 5 drops Young Living Lemongrass Essential Oil
- Combine two ingredients and store in a glass jar. A baby food jar will work!
- When ready to use, warm the jar in a pan of boiling water. Don’t get it too hot, just comfortably warm.
- Apply warm oil mixture to hair and scalp (If you have short and/or thin hair, this recipe will make two treatments. If your hair is long and/or thick like mine you’ll need the whole thing.) Leave on 15 minutes.
- Shampoo out. You may need to lather/rinse/repeat a couple of times, or add some baking soda to your shampoo to make sure all of the olive oils gets washed out.
- Enjoy silky, shiny, manageable hair!
- Put your oily hair up in a disposable shower cap (or a Dollar Tree cap used only for this purpose) to keep your clothes and furniture from getting oil on them.
- You will likely have to lather, rinse, repeat several times to get all of the deep conditioning treatment out
- I only use Young Living Essential Oils for maximum safety and effectiveness.
