Hi! I was wondering if anyone has a recipe for an oil-free, honey free, protein free deep conditioner LOL. All of the recipes that I have seen have one of these three ingredients and my hair doesn't respond well to these items. Thank you for reading :).

I need to add one thing as well, I need something that doesn't involve the butters. Those just stick in my hair and it takes a harsh shampoo to wash out.

Have you tried a commercial conditioner? Like Aveda, I've read raving reviews on that one. You say nothing seems to work. Maybe you have scab hair?

It's quite possible that some of my hair is scab hair, but I've been transitioning for almost two years so all of it can't be scab hair.. right??? Anyway, I was thinking about posting this question in the commerical thread but I didn't want to do that double post thing. I don't want something that is super expensive either *shrug*

I use a Avocado & Banana Mask. I know you said no honey or EVOO but you can try mixing molasses with it. Molases is good for preventing split ends. Just blend everything untill smooth.

Avocado and Banana huh? Are those two ingredients very moisturizing? It sure sounds yummy!

Pinkwolf, from your suggestion I searched the boards for recipes with avocado and I have decided to use Moe's recipe on this (http://www.nappturality.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=65013) page (scroll down) i have it on right now and I will be rinsing in about an hour.

Thank you :). I tried the avocado and coconut milk and I couldn't get the avocado to mash all the way? *shrug* I guess practice makes perfect!

Try blending them together in a blender then straining them through a piece of gauze or an old white t-shirt.

yogurt is supposed to be great for softening...

my hair isn't too fond of honey and is iffy with oils (depends on the oil). proteins i think it likes in moderation (i read somewhere that too much protein makes your hair brittle and dry). anyway i deep condition with stuff like coconut milk, commercial conditioners - suave etc, mayo (protein rich tho) and the oils my hair likes (coconut, amla, avocado and jojoba.....it HATES olive oil lol). have your tried mixing a bit of commercial conditioner with coconut milk or some other item that your hair does like?

Oh yes I forgot all about this. :)

Yes the banana is very moisturizing. I strain using an old t-shirt becuse the reciepe can get a little chunky.

Well I tried the avocado and coconut milk again. I mashed two ripe avocadoes and then pour the coconut milk in. I left it in for two hours and my hair feels pretty darn good :). I'm going to use the rest of it tonight and then do it again next week. My plan is to deep condition twice a week for the month of July, my hair can really use the moisture.
