Tropical Rhythm Deep Conditioner Recipe

You can do some excellent homemade deep conditioner recipes with your fruits. You will not feel as if you missed out on a store bought conditioner at all with this particular deep conditioner  recipe.


½ ripe papaya

1 ripe mango (any mango will do)

3 tbsp Coconut oil

2 tbsp natural honey


Remove seeds and skin of mango and papaya and blend together until the mixture is smooth and there are no chunky particles. Mix in the honey and the coconut oil. Apply to hair, wrap hair in a plastic cap for an hour and then rinse out with lukewarm water. Finish up with a cold water rinse.

Ingredients Benefits to Hair

Papaya is one of those fruits that is very good for hair, rich in proteins, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Iron, Magnesium, Beta Carotene and so many more ingredients for healthy hair growth. Papaya also helps to maintain the natural shine of the hair, keep the hair soft, restrict dandruff and stimulate hair growth.

Mango– contains a quarter of the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C. Other vitamins found in mango are: Vitamins A, E, and K. Mangoes are also an excellent source of iron, which–along with Vitamin A and E–is one of the key nutrients that help strengthen, nourish and fortify hair, helping to prevent hair loss.

    What I love about natural products, is you cannot go wrong, you can be creative and for me (living in The Bahamas, a tropical zone), I can find many of these products with ease, and some grow in my backyard. There are no restrictions or limitations and I love that! I use honey, and coconut oil and aloe vera as the base of all of my treatments.

    However, I wash, then treat, then moisturize and sometimes I do not even moisturize because my hair is still so moist after the treatment.

    Should I condition then wash? Do I HAVE to moisturize after the treatment?

    And thank you so much for the shampoo recipes, now I can kiss those awful store bought shampoos goodbye!!

      Hi Ronnell
      That’s so true, natural products are really versatile. It is good that you have access to the plants yourself and that you can get them when you want them. Most of the herbs and plants like aloe vera can be grown in pots and I encourage everyone to grow a pot or two of their favorite plant. Your method sounds good. It is similar to mine. I think wash then condition is the better order, when you wash first you lift the dirt from your scalp, and when you condition you give your hair cuticles a chance to close and it leaves hair supple. Moisturizing after a treatment is entirely up to you, the other day, I did a treatment and my hair was so moisturized I didn’t bother to moisturize after.

      I hope to add more recipes in the coming year for shampoo. You can let us know if you have anything new so that we can try it out too.
