    Question What makes your hair soft?

    Does anyone know any good ways to make your hair soft without using bananas/avacados? I tried making a deep conditioner with bananas without a blender (and buying one isn't an option right now) and needless to say, I'm still picking chunks out of my hair. Unfortunately for me, I'm running low on funds, so buying shea butter isn't an option or else I would have used that a while ago...

    So are there any natural ingredients that I can include in a deep conditioner? I've tried EVOO and honey together, but they don't do much on their own.

    Natural hair does not feel like relaxed hair. You are going to have to get used to how your real hair feels. Your natural hair may not be "soft." If that's the case, there is nothing wrong with your hair.

    Conditioning is for the health of your hair. It's not for softness. Healthy natural hair is not necessarily soft.

    You can try a lot of product that will coat your hair and give you the "feeling" of softness. You can use something like water and castor oil. You'll most likely have to use it everyday.

    Okay, I actually mean moisturized. Because I know that it's not going to feel "soft" like relaxed hair (my hair has never been relaxed, btw). When I did the banana deep condtioner, my hair was soft and moisturized.

    I just want something that will do that, but without the residue.

    OP use baby food banana's instead of real ones plus honey and a little bit of EVOO or regular Olive oil. I do this and it leaves my hair soft with no residue. HTH

    Baby food and bananas? (Okay, no comment...)

    Have you tried just a simple regimen? My hair is pretty soft and people comment on how soft it is when they touch it. I just co-wash and seal with castor oil (basic or JBCO). If fund are low, basic is fine. In fact, I think I'm about to go back to basic when I run out of JBCO as I've not seen a huge difference. I also do an Aphogee treatment every six or so weeks (if I remember). I keep it simple and that seems to do the trick.

    Well I'm trying to use an all-natural conditioner. The kind I have sucks (Pantene pro-V) and I'm just kind of done with chemically modified (not sure if I'm using the right words here) hair products. In short, I'm trying to go "all natural" with the things I put in my hair. If that makes any sense.

    And I already use EVOO so I don't want to spend more money on oil when I have some at home.

    Would melted honey by itself work? Or does it have to be mixed with something? It always ends up seperating when I use it with EVOO.

    This is a stretch, but would regular milk work if mixed with it?
