This DIY Coconut & Rose Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe Will Soften Your Curls like Magic!
As you know, natural hair requires adequate moisture in order to prevent breakage and maintain healthy, growing hair. Unlike straighter hair types, the tighter the curl or coil of the hair, the more moisture it will require. Recently, I discovered a pretty cool DIY hair recipe created by beauty and hair expert, Wendy Rose Gould that I know you'll love.
The conditioner recipe looks pretty easy, and all of the ingredients with the exception of rose oil are already in my home. I'm always looking for new hair care recipes that will help my fine hair retain moisture, strengthen my hair and give it a thicker appearance. If you have fine or thin hair, try using Jamaican black Castor oil instead of extra virgin olive oil.

"I’ve always been good at conditioning my hair. I condition religiously in fact. However, some mistakes resulted in hair that needed serious resuscitation, and so I was on a mission to find the best products to help," explains Wendy. I found some good ones, of course, but as a DIYer, I also concocted my own deep conditioner. I consider this DIY hair conditioner a moisture bomb, of sorts, as it’s loaded with hair-loving oils and butters. To give it an extra personal twist, I even added a little bit of rose oil. Here’s the 100% original recipe and how-to.

Items You Will Need to Get Started:

  • 5 Tbs Shea Butter
  • 3 Tbs. Coconut Oil
  • 1 tsp. Dr. Bronners’ Pure Castille Soap
  • 1 tsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 15 drops 100% Camellia Seed Oil
  • 6 Drops of Rose Essential Oil (or preferred fragrance)

How to Prepare the Conditioner:

First, start by combining 3 tablespoons of Shea butter and three tablespoons of coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave until everything’s melted and mix well.

Next, add your castille soap, olive oil, camellia seed oil and rose scent. The castille soap will help during the rinsing process, the camellia seed oil will soften, and the coconut oil, Shea butter and olive oil will provide intense moisture to restore shine and strengthen your hair. The rose scent isn’t necessary, but it’ll add a little bit of rose fragrance if you’re into it.

Then, place the mixture into the fridge or freezer until it’s cool to touch, but be careful not to let it form into a solid. You'll want to be able to mix it up and not get that "grainy" consistency.

Add your remaining two tablespoons of Shea butter to the mixture and whip with a hand mixer. It’ll turn into a normal consistency, similar to the consistency of hair conditioner.

Using the Coconut Rose Oil Conditioner on your Natural Hair:

  • Deep Conditioner: After shampooing, apply the DIY conditioner. Let it set for three to five minutes, then rinse. Consider this a deep conditioner and only use it once or twice a week.
  • Conditioning Mask: This is my favorite way to use the conditioner. Simply apply to ends of dry hair and let it set for 15 to 20 minutes before shampooing.
  • Leave-In Conditioner: If you have very dry hair, or coarse/textured hair, this is a good option. Rub a dime-sized amount of the conditioner into your hands and apply to your ends of damp hair. Style as normal. You can also apply to the ends of day two or three hair for a little bit of a boost.
