I tried this conditioner recipe last week Friday, it is a variation of the Pre-Shampoo Egg Treatment and it works like a charm. It gives the hair a silky feel and it gives it volume… lots and lots of volume. The mixture is sticky and stinky but is worth a try. I plan to do this once per month in lieu of commercial protein treatments. This is definitely one of those hair recipes for hair growth that is worth trying.
Hair Growth Deep Conditioner Recipe
- 3 drops Peppermint oil
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1 egg (you can use two if you feel your hair needs the extra protein)
- 1 tablespoon black strap molasses
- ½ cup apple cider vinegar
Wet hair or dampen with warm water. I tried it on both dry and wet hair but it goes on easier on wet hair. Combine ingredients except the apple cider vinegar in a small bowl. Massage mixture into hair and scalp, pay close attention to the ends of the hair. Wrap hair in a hot towel or cover with shower cap for 15 minutes. Shampoo and rinse out mixture. Combine the ½ cup of apple cider vinegar with 1 cup water and give your hair a final rinse. The apple cider vinegar will take care of any lingering eggy scent.
Important: do not wash your hair with hot water or use the dryer with this mixture on your head. The egg will scramble on your head.
