I admit it. I’m a product junkie. I love to try new natural products for my hair, skin and body. And I REALLY love trying new DIY products.
So when I come across a good DIY recipe, I’m eager to try it out, tweak it, and then add it to my routine.
This DIY natural hair conditioner is easy to mix and really works well in hydrating my hair and helping to define my curls. It adds shine to my hair, and leaves it feeling soft and easy to manage.
I usually apply this mixture to my hair overnight, after clarifying my hair with 1/2 and 1/2 apple cider vinegar (ACV) and water mixture. I leave the ACV on my hair for 45 minutes to one hour. Once rinsing out the ACV, I apply this DIY conditioner to my wet hair.
If you like to create products for your natural hair and are ready to try something new, here is a recipe you just may love as much as I do:
What You Need
2-3 oz TRESemme Naturals Radiant Volume Conditioner
1/2 cup Distilled water
1 Earl Grey tea bag (or other black tea)
Empty applicator bottle
What You Do
Heat distilled water until boiling. Add the tea bag and let it soak for 10 – 15 minutes. Fill the applicator bottle with 2 – 3 ounces of TRESemme Naturals and all of the tea mixture. Shake well, then apply to wet hair in sections.
Cover your hair with a plastic cap or bag, then tie with a satin scarf. Leave this mixture on your hair overnight, then rinse in the morning. You can style your hair as you normally do. During the week I follow with a small amount of plain TRESemme as my leave-in conditioner, then seal with my favorite gel. On the weekend, I rinse out the mixture and then follow with a DIY clay mixture, then add my leave-in conditioner and gel.
You can tailor the regimen to your needs and likes, but if your hair is similar to mine, this mixture is sure to make your natural hair feel great.
