During the dry cold mouths my hair tends to become really dried out and brittle. Most drug store brand hair conditioners do not help repair my dry brittle hair at all so I usually make my own homemade jojoba hair conditioner and it works very well with nourishing, hydrating, and repairing my hair.
The natural ingredients I use to make my homemade jojoba hair conditioner are 2 tablespoons of jojoba oil, ¼ cup of warm coconut milk, 1 egg yolk, 1 tablespoon of aloe vera juice, and 1 teaspoon of liquid coconut oil. These natural ingredients are natural moisturizing, soothing, and repairing to dry brittle hair. They even help add shine, volume, and bounce back into hair which is really nice. All these ingredients can be food at your local organic grocery store or herbal health food store Sometimes local drug stores carry them as well.
The way I like to make the homemade jojoba hair conditioner is by placing the 2 tablespoons of jojoba oil, ¼ cup of warm coconut milk, 1 egg yolk, 1 tablespoon of aloe vera juice, and 1 teaspoon of liquid coconut oil into a small plastic measuring cup. Then I combined the ingredients together until I get a rich golden milky liquid oily conditioner. After the conditioner is made I simply take it into the bathroom and use it in the shower as I am cleansing and conditioning my hair. This conditioning recipe only makes enough conditioner for one use. You can not save it either. Once the conditioner is made you have to use it right up or it will go bad.
Now the best way I find to use the homemade jojoba hair conditioner is by rinsing my hair down with warm water. Then I pour the conditioner into my hair and comb it through using a comb. After I allow the conditioner to soak right into my hair while I am shaving my legs and washing up. The conditioner will be slightly oily and greasy feeling, but it will washout well leaving hair very soft and manageable. Anyways, after I am done with conditioning my hair I than rinse the conditioner out and shampoo my hair like I usually do. After I shampoo my hair I than take my daily conditioner and lightly condition my hair some more. Once all these steps are done I rinse my hair out well, pat it dry with a towel, and let it air dry. After my hair is dried it feels very soft and silky and has a lot of shine and bounce back in it. It isn’t brittle or dull looking anymore either which is very nice. I usually use this homemade jojoba conditioner once a week in the wintertime to help prevent my hair from becoming super dried out and brittle and it seems to work really well.
I do hope those of you who try making my homemade jojoba hair conditioner have an easy time making it, and those of you who use it have an incredible hair conditioning experiences. I wish you all the best with keeping your hair looking and feeling its best naturally.
