7 Fantastic Homemade Hair Conditioners to Try

4 years ago

1. Mayo, Egg Whites & Yogurt Conditioner

I know that this homemade hair conditioner sounds disgusting, but it does really work! Its also going to make your hair look beautiful from the inside out! You can swap out plain yogurt for vanilla to make it smell better and also make sure that you rinse this hair conditioner out in warm water, not hot!

Heres what you need:

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
egg whites from 1 egg

Seriously, thats it!


Whip all that deep conditioning goodness around in a bowl, and youre ready to rock. Lather it onto your hair, focusing on the ends where youll likely have the most damage, and make sure to really coat all the strands of hair.


Slap on a shower cap, and turn on your favorite episode of Dancing with the Stars while you wait for the conditioner to work its magic. It needs to sit on your head for about 30 minutes.

Another note: it will drip, which is totally nasty {but worth it in the end!}, so I recommend doing one of two things: tucking tissue or cotton balls around the edges of the shower cap, just like in the good old days of the home perm, or wrapping your head in a wet towel. Your choice.


When youre all done waiting patiently to see your beautiful conditioned tresses, its time to rinse. Rinse really, really, really, REALLY well using LUKEWARM water. Hot water + egg whites = breakfast.

After you rinse you can opt to shampoo your hair, or wait and let the conditioner keep working its glorious magic. Its your choice, your foxy hair.

2. Honey Hair conditioner

The next homemade hair conditioner that were going to talk about is honey hair conditioner! This one smells so much better than the one above and its as effective! Just keep in mind some of the ingredients and how much you use, especially if you have naturally oily hair.


1/2 cup Savannah Bee Company honey (you may substitute any local or organic honey)

4 tablespoons light olive oil (depending on hair type, use lesser amount for oily hair)


In a small bowl, mix together Savannah Bee Company honey and olive oil until full integrated. Pour mixture through a funnel into a plastic bottle with a squeeze top lid.

When ready to use, gently shake mixture and massage into your hair until evenly covered. Cover your head with a shower cap and allow the conditioner to stay on your hair for at least 30 minutes and up to an hour. shampoo and rinse your hair thoroughly.

3. Coconut conditioner for Oily Hair

Coconut oil is one of the few oils that can make your hair not only smell awesome, but also that will make your hair shiny and so, so soft. This coconut oil conditioner is designed specifically for oily hair. Itll get rid of the excess oil and truly leave your hair feeling so light and natural!


1 cup water
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon of coconut oil (find it in the baking section of a grocery store, health food store, candle store)


A whisk and a bowl

Start by whisking the egg yolk until it becomes frothy, add the coconut oil, and whisk it a little more.

Add the water and then stir it until it becomes smooth. Apply the mix to your hair and scalp, massage it thoroughly then let it rest for 2-5 minutes.

Rinse your hair with clean cool water. Voila! The bonus is great smelling tropical coconut loveliness in your hair.

4. avocado Hair conditioner

The next homemade hair conditioner that were going to explore is the avocado hair conditioner! Avocados actually are rich in good fats, which means that youll have hair that is super shiny, super manageable and totally light and airy! Give this homemade hair conditioner a try ladies, I know youll love it!

Heres what you need:

one avocado
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons heavy cream


Mix all that up, comb it through your gorgeous hair and cover with a shower cap. Now turn on your DVR and catch up on Oprah for about 20 minutes while it penetrates deep into your hair follicles. Once youre well versed in whatever Tom Cruise scandal is brewing, rinse the conditioner out with tepid water. shampoo {you dont want to smell like avocado forever}, rinse, and youre all set.

5. Coconut Milk conditioner

Remember coconut oil? Well, this is actually a coconut milk conditioner! All you need is avocados, coconut oil and coconut milk. Thats it ladies! Just mix all of the ingredients on up and leave on for about 10 15 minutes for really deep conditioning!


1 avocado
1 cup of coconut milk
2 tablespoons of coconut oil


Peel, pit, and mash your avocado. Add the coconut milk and coconut oil and mix until smooth. Work this conditioner through your hair (you can let it hang out for 10-15 minutes for deeper conditioning). Rinse and then shampoo. If youve never tried conditioning before shampooing, youre in for a treat!

6. Shea Butter Hair conditioner

Shea butter is one of the few ingredients that will make your split ends go away, that will really make your hair feel thick and beautiful. I love this homemade hair conditioner! Its a little on the heavy side, so you wont have to use much!


1 1/3 cups of Shea Butter
½ cup olive oil
1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
½ ounce fragrance oil (e.g. lavender oil, or rosemary oil)


Heat Shea Butter slowly in a medium saucepan until it has turned into liquid form

Spoon mixture into an airtight container

7. Banana Hair conditioner

If youre looking for a super quick and easy homemade hair conditioner, this one is it! You basically take a few really ripe bananas, puree them and put them on! This recipes works too, my hair feels awesome!


2 or 3 ripe bananas


Puree the banana completely. This is important.

With your hands, massage the banana puree into your hair.
Relax and wait 15 minutes.
