Today, we are going to make a DIY deep conditioner for natural hair.

If your hair is looking a bit neglected, do not worry because I am going to show you how to bring it back to life. Let’s get started!

Tools and materials:

  • Bowl
  • Spoon
  • Black castor oil
  • Jojoba oil
  • Conditioner
  • Plastic cap
  • Dryer
Combining oils

1. Combine oils

Pour some 100% pure Jamaican black castor oil into a bowl. Then add in some 100% pure jojoba oil (although you can use another type of oil if you can’t get hold of this).

Mix the two oils together until they are well blended.

Adding conditioner

2. Add conditioner

Add in some mega-moist conditioner. The conditioner will act as your cream base, which will combine everything together.

The conditioner is already very moisturizing, and adding the other two oils in there is just going to make it even more moisturizing.

Proceed to mix everything together until they are thick. If you want your mixture to be a little bit thinner, you can warm it up by sitting the bowl in a water bath.

Doing this will help the conditioner penetrate into your hair if you have low porosity hair.

Applying deep conditioner recipe to hair

3. Apply to hair

Work the mixture into your hair.

Since my hair is already detangled, I don't want to tangle it up anymore, so I'm just twisting my hair in small sections.

Tying hair up

4. Tie hair up

When you have applied conditioner to each section, simply pull them up to the top of your head.

Apply the remaining deep conditioner all around your edges. I do not want to waste any of the mixture because it is glory, glory, glory to every strand of my hair.

Drying hair

5. Dry hair

Put all of your hair into a plastic cap and then sit under a dryer for 20 minutes.

Soft healthy hair

After sitting with this on my hair for 20 minutes, I rinsed it out with cool water, and this is the final result!

My hair is moisturized, it is soft, it is shiny, and I absolutely love the way it came out. It went from being super dry to super moisturized.
