Coconut Hair Conditioner

Do you want to condition your hair without harmful toxins and additives? Natural alternatives are safer for your skin, too. Some people use the conditioners on their hair, scalp, and skin. Try some of these natural alternatives to moisturize and condition your hair.

Coconut Oil

Virgin coconut oil is solid at temperatures under 76 degrees Fahrenheit. It melts in warmer temperatures, so avoid putting too much in your hair, or it will run down your neck when it’s hot outside. You can melt the coconut oil in a saucepan at a low temperature, or simply put it in your hands and rub them together until it melts. Rub the coconut oil through your hair.  Use just enough to give your hair has a slight sheen, but it shouldn’t feel oily.  As you part your hair for braids or twists, you can dab a bit of coconut oil on your scalp as you go. You’ll find pure virgin coconut oil in health food stores, or grocery stores that sell natural products. Some people use unprocessed virgin coconut oil to cook, and this edible oil is safe for hair.

Jojoba Oil

Like coconut oil, you can rub a bit of jojoba oil in your hair to keep it conditioned and moisturized. Use it as a leave-in conditioner. Just add a bit of it to freshly washed hair. Jojoba oil is a bit expensive, and it could be tricky to find pure jojoba oil in stores. You are more likely to find it in stores that sell health food and organic products. There are a lot of products in the marketplace with a drop or two of jojoba oil, but you should definitely give pure jojoba oil a try. You can also use it on your skin.

Egg Yolks

Try using egg yolks to add shine and body to your hair. The yolks will help moisturize dry hair and the protein helps to strengthen and thicken hair too. Some people combine egg yolks with other natural ingredients, but you can also reap the benefits of eggs yolks by using the yolks without the additional products. To use egg yolks in your hair, separate the whites from the yolks. Whisk the egg yolks in a bowl, and apply the yolks to your washed hair. Place a plastic bag on your head and allow the yolks to sit on your hair for about 15 minutes. Thoroughly rinse the egg out of your hair after the treatment.
