DIY Natural: Deep Conditioning Protein Treatment + Recipe

Happy Monday!

What better way to kick the week off, than to drop a protein conditioning treatment recipe!

Protein strengthens the hair, can temporarily stop breakage, and if you color, manipulate, or flat iron your hair regularly, protein can really make a difference in the health and well being of your natural hair. Aim for a good balance of moisture and protein. I do this by alternating between a protein and moisture conditioner on wash day. I usually use Aubrey Organics Protein Conditioner and deep condition using rhassoul clay, altering between the two to maintain the balance. Because I like to use ingredients found in my kitchen, I decided to try swapping the Aubrey Organics protein conditioner for a natural alternative; yogurt! Previously, I’d used yogurt alone as a protein conditioner and was satisfied with the results, but still needed to DC my hair after the treatment. I found that with this recipe, no deep conditioning was necessary.

Beauty Day Sunday, Featuring Rhassoul Clay

Hello Beautiful :)

I started this week off the right way and my hair thanked me!

I tried Rhassoul clay for the first time, and it’s definitely a keeper!

IMG_1475_Clay0After much research, I decided to give Rhassoul clay a try. I used a basic recipe of:

1/4 oz Liquid (Water or Aloe Vera Juice)

1/2 oz Rhassoul Clay

2 tbsp Oil (Optional)

I experimented this weekend with a few herbs that are great for moisture and growth. Horsetail, Burdock Root, Irish Moss, Marshmallow Root, Rose Petals. Check out the second photo in the slideshow to see my natural hair brew!
