How to Make a Coconut Oil Hair Conditioner

By Maggie Hira

Coconut oil is one of the most deeply moisturizing oils available. Though its name suggests a liquid consistency, coconut oil is actually a solid white substance. Due to its highly hydrating properties, coconut oil is a great ingredient to use in a hair conditioner. A coconut oil hair conditioner is the ideal nourishment for dry hair that desperately needs some nourishment.

Step 1

Place 2 tbsp. of coconut oil in a plastic mixing bowl. Using a spatula, begin kneading the solid oil until it begins to soften slightly into a thick, creamy texture.

Step 2

Add 1 tbsp. of sweet almond oil into the plastic bowl. Continue stirring until the coconut oil and almond oil have blended together.

Step 3

Add a pea-sized amount of the rose concrete to the mixture. A concrete is an ingredient that gives beauty products a pleasant color and spreadable texture. Use the back of your spoon to break up the rose concrete to make it easier to blend.

Step 4

Place the electric mixer on low and gently beat the mixture for about 5 minutes. You should have a creamy, frothy paste when you're done.

Step 5

To use, coat your hair from roots to tips with the coconut oil hair conditioner. Allow the conditioner to saturate your locks for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse off.
