Egg Protein and Avocado Moisturizing Deep Conditioner

01/31/2012 | By | More

Sitting here with a protein moisturizing deep conditioner on my hair that I threw together from some of my favorite food-based conditioning products.

  • 1 ripe avocado – mashed thoroughlyegg protein hair conditioner for dry natural hair
  • 4 oz. coconut creme
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 Tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon raw honey
  • 1 Tablespoon olive or avocado oil

Mash avocado with fork until no lumps remain. Whip in egg yolk to blend thoroughly. Pour in coconut creme and mix that in. Then add the honey and ACV and blend mixture until smooth. Add oil and stir until mixed in.

Put on lightly dampened hair and massage into the scalp. Cover head with plastic cap, then a towel and let sit on hair for 30-45 minutes. Rinse, shampoo lightly if you want, then apply your leave-in conditioner and style as usual.

Since my hair was relatively clean, I didn’t wash it with shampoo. Instead, I co-washed my hair with Trader Joe’s Nourish Spa conditioner. Once the conditioner was rinsed out, I combed my hair and twisted it up with Shea whip. There was barely ANY shedding or breakage. Minimal.

I love coconut creme, egg yolk and avocado in my hair as a moisturizing deep conditioner… an absolute trifecta of ingredients for beautiful natural hair.

Nothing I’ve ever tried commercially strengthens, softens and creates a silky shine like this particular combination of ingredients.

And the added touch of the apple cider vinegar closes the hair cuticle and rebalances the pH of your hair. So your dry hair will feel smooth to the touch and will retain the moisture and nutrients you just added.

This is good stuff!
