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.

At Home Facial: Honey Turmeric Bentonite Clay

Sunday was beauty day; while I waited for my hair to deep condition, I decided to give myself a complete spa day by doing a facial at home.

Bentonite Clay, Tumeric, ACV, Honey

There are many ingredients in your kitchen which can be used for a facial; below, I list my ingredients and why I choose to use them:

  1. 2 tbsp Bentonite Clay: Absorbs toxins, draws out blackheads, kills acne-causing bacteria, anti-aging benefits, exfoliates the skin (Don’t use metal bowls or utensils when mixing bentonite! It affects the composition and reduces its effectiveness)
