Hair End Moisturizing Conditioner Mask Recipe

There are many things that you can use on your hair ends to make it moisturized and fresh overnight or if you just have an hour or two. This is just a sample recipe if you are searching for something to get your hair ends looking good for a few days or more. The key to gorgeous ends is to get them moisturized.

Moisturized Hair Ends Leave In Formula

1/2 cup aloe vera gel (if you are buying the gel at a store make sure that the gel is at least 90% pure aloe vera)

1 tsp. vegetable glycerin

1 tsp (Shea butter, mango butter or coconut cream- either of these three can be used)


You can add a little more or less of each ingredient based on your hair length. After mixing together the three ingredients, apply generously to ends, cover hair ends with a plastic cap and leave it for an hour or overnight.

You can also apply this mixture to all of the hair as a daily moisturizing treatment. It works well for both relaxed and natural hair. Most relaxed ladies who use it go easy on the butter and most natural hair ladies add a little more butter. Figure out what’s best for your particular hair.

    i’m assuming this is a pre-wash AND can also be used as a daily moisturizer. is that correct?

    • Brenda said:

      Yes you are correct, you can use this as a pre-wash, for every day use, use it sparingly.

    Does this recipe need any water?

    • Brenda said:

      No—no water. It comes out like hair lotion because of the gel and glycerin combo, also a little goes a long way. I am going to post the results of these recipes with step by step pics for easy following shortly.

    What is the role of vegetable glycerine?

  • Bea said:

    can honey be used as an alternative to vegetable glycerin? ive read that honey is a natural humectant on another hair site

      Hi Bea,
      Honey is a lovely humectant but it does not compare to vegetable glycerin in this particular recipe. I will write an extensive article on humectants soon.

    Hello there. Thank you some much for such great recipes. I have followed three of them so far(Moisturizing end mask, basic leave in conditioner and and shea butter moisturizer) and loving the results! I have been a naturalista for a little over a year now and these seem to be the only products that work for me. So I looking forward to trying the mango nut recipe soon.

    I need a bit of advice though, I tried the hair end moisturizing mask on a relative who has relaxed hair and apparently her hair ends are frizzy. To give you the full details, this is what I did:-

    1. Followed the recipe as I have done at least 3 times before and left the gel mixture on the counter top while I…
    2. relaxed her hair (permed as some may say)
    3. put in normalizer then neutralizer shampoos as instructed by the manufacturer
    4. rinsed out hair
    5. put the hair mask on ends only
    6. covered with a plastic cap for 15mins
    7. put in semi-permanent dye in her hair following the instructions on the bottle
    8.covered again with plastic cap for 25mins
    9. rinsed out thoroughly
    10.roller set
    11. under hair dryer

    I left her at this point but she says when she took out the rollers, her ends were very frizzy. What did I do wrong? This was not the first time I relaxed and dyed her hair for her but it was the first time I put in the moisturizing mask, any possible explanations and suggestions to rectify?

      Hi Smart Cookie,
      Maybe her ends need a trim. It is hard to say that the moisturizing mask was the problem since you’ve used it successfully before. Do you have to relax and dye at the same time though? 🙁

    Oh, 2b. thoroughly rinsed out relaxer from hair b4 putting in shampoos , of course! (lol)
