Every now and then, my hair loses its shine, I start getting more split ends, and it looks a big more fizzy. Over the years, I have tried expensive and inexpensive deep conditioning treatments on my hair, and have had varying levels of success. It was only when I started making my own DIY Coconut Oil Deep Conditioner that I found something that really worked for me.
I am all about homemade beauty products. I’m able to make my own homemade teeth whitener, homemade lip gloss and my own homemade body scrubs. I have found that once I invested in a few key ingredients, such as coconut oil, essential oils and shea butter, then I can make hundreds of different beauty products, while saving money and reducing the toxins in my home.
If you haven’t jumped on the homemade beauty product bandwagon, this is a great product to start with 🙂 Your hair will feel hydrated, healthy and shiny. One treatment will honestly leave your hair looking better for weeks!
