The Perfect, All-Natural Deep Conditioner for Your Winter Hair Needs!

by Fran of HeyFranHey.com


As soon as the temperatures start to drop, I dig into my fridge and pantry for my DIY deep-conditioning ingredients. During the summer months, the humidity in the air helps me retain moisture pretty easily so deep-conditioning isn’t a major priority. However, when modifying my regimen according to season, it becomes a crucial step for winter hair care. Keeping my natural hair on a twice monthly, and sometimes weekly, (depending on how cold it is) organic and moisturizing treatment schedule has vastly improved my hair health over the years. It’s hard enough as it is retaining moisture in our coils and harsh winds don’t make it any easier to pull off! These are all ingredients you probably have at home right this minute, too! Try this exact mixture on those thirsty strands and you’ll notice a difference immediately. Truly the ultimate form of hydration! The best part? It’s all healthy, affordable and natural. Here’s what I use and why:

1/2 cup of Coconut Milk
  • Coconut is a natural protein that helps fortify strands
  • Helps against dull, dry and limp hair.

½ Banana
  • Banana is rich in potassium which serves as a natural emollient
  • Helps soften dry and brittle hair

2 tablespoons of Organic Honey
  • Honey is an all natural humectant and shine serum
  • Helps retain gloss and hydration while combating frizz

½ an Avocado
  • Avocado contains fats and oils serve as a natural sealant
  • Helps restore and retain moisture

½ cup of Olive Oil
  • Olive Oil is loaded with healthy fats that serve as a sealant
  • Helps retain moisture, minimize frizz and promotes shine

Place all of the raw ingredients into a blender and mix. Leave on your hair for 25-30 minutes, under a conditioning cap, rinse and cleanse as usual!

Feel free to modify the measurements according to your specific hair needs. For example, if you know your hair has protein sensitivity or simply doesn’t respond well to protein in large doses, try ¼ of a cup of Coconut Milk instead. Or if shine is your main objective, try increasing the tablespoons of honey. Everyone’s hair will respond to things differently so make sure to be attentive and catering to what your strands enjoy best.
