Three Ouick and Easy Homemade Moisture DC Recipes

Doing moisture deep conditioning treatments regularly is crucial for maintaining soft, healthy hair but finding store-bought DCs in Kenya can be difficult and costly.  Here are three quick and easy homemade recipes* that work great for your hair and are easy on your pocket.

1. Honey-Avocado


1/2 cup Conditioner** (I use Tresemme Naturals)
2 Tablespoons Honey
1/2 Avocado*** - mashed and sieved 
2 tablespoons of Avocado Oil (you can substitue with Coconut or Olive Oil)

2. Coconut-Shea


1/2 Cup Conditioner** (I use Tresemme Naturals)
2 Tablespoons whipped Shea Butter (I use Shea butter mixes like Harvest of Sunshine or Awali Naturals but you can also use melted pure shea)
2 Tablespoons Honey
2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil (you can substitute with Avocado or Olive Oil)

3. Olive-Banana


1/2 cup Conditioner** (I use Tresemme Naturals)
1 Very Ripe Banana*** (mashed or blended and sieved)
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil (can be substituted with Avocado or Coconut Oil)
1 Tablespoon Honey

How To:
1. Mix
2. Apply to head and cover with shower cap or cling film
3. Leave 30 minutes
4. Rinse thoroughly with cool water

as the recipes contain fresh ingredients, they should be used immediately after mixing to prevent them going off
** conditioners are optional in these recipes but as they contain conditioning agents such as BTMS, centimonium chlorides and Polyquats, their conditioning proporties are enhanced by the other ingredients
*** avocados and bananas can leave bits in hair so make sure they are thoroughly mashed and sieved prior to using
