    Homemade deep hair conditioning 17th Jul 17 at 3:05 PM
    I have tried a few things to deep condition hair and none seem to have been "amazing" they work ok but not for long.

    Its getting more and more frizzy by the day at the moment, I use coconut oil but it's not cutting it at all.

    I've tried mayo etc, I'm considering purchasing a frizz ease serum and deep conditioning oil, but I just wondered if there were any other things that we may already have in that could be used as a deep conditioner.

    Do you regularly dye or bleach your hair, is it going grey? You need different products for these.

    Do these threads help?

    Hair Conditioner ( 1 2)

    Vinegar used as Conditioner ( 1 2 3 ... Last Page)

    I would do a search on the Health and Beauty board. I may move this later so you get more input

    Let us know what works

    Staunch advocate of olive oil & time here, here but I'm a straighthair.
    Worth trying & then ending with an apple cider vinegar rinse to give curls a boost (if sought)?

    Thanks for the ideas so far.

    I've never coloured it yet, it probably has hints of grey, its long waist length staight if I dry it, wavy if I don't, medium blondish, I usually shampoo and condition, I'm used to conditioning it, I'm not used to it going this frizzy.

    We have plenty of Olive oil and Apple cider vinger, I will give it a try.
