DIY Coconut Oil Conditioner Recipe
Once you learn how to make this DIY coconut oil conditioner recipe you’ll never want to go back to the store-bought stuff again! It’s easy to make, smells fantastic, and has tons of benefits.
Why You Should Make Your Own Conditioner
Although natural, non-toxic hair conditioners are becoming more popular, there are still a ton of hair care products out there that contain harmful ingredients. And even if you want to transition to something more organic, it will typically cost you a pretty penny.
Add on top of that the fact that making homemade conditioner can seem like a daunting task and it’s no wonder most people continue using potentially toxic products!
That being said, I’m glad you landed on this post because today, I’m going to share one of my favorite homemade conditioner recipes: a super simple and frugal DIY coconut oil conditioner with a lovely lavender scent.
How to Make Coconut Oil Conditioner
If you already have the ingredients for this recipe on hand, you can whip it up faster than it would take to go to the store and buy conditioner. That’s how quick it is. It only takes me about 10 minutes!
Plus, the ingredients are all fantastic for your hair. Check it out:
This recipe only requires four ingredients: coconut oil (of course), jojoba oil, vitamin E oil, and lavender essential oil.
What do all of these ingredients do? Well, each one carries a set of benefits:
- First off, making conditioner with coconut oil is pretty common because it’s AMAZING for your hair. It’s natural, moisturizing, helps stimulate hair growth, slows hair loss, and more.
- The jojoba oil then adds on top of these benefits. Similarly to coconut oil, jojoba helps moisturize and strengthen hair with its various vitamins and minerals (source).
- The vitamin E piles on more goodness as it helps protect your hair, promotes blood circulation in the scalp, and more.
- And finally, as the cherry on top, the lavender essential oil adds an amazing, calming fragrance. It also helps promote hair growth, prevent bacteria and fungi, and more.
Needless to say, this stuff is pretty great! Let’s learn how to make it:
Step 1. Add the Ingredients to a Mixer
Nothing complicated here! Grab your food mixer and add all the ingredients right in there.
Step 2. Mix
Set the mixer to low and leave it for about 8 minutes. As it is mixing, it should lowly turn into more of a creamy mixture. This is a perfect consistency for both hair conditioner and lotion.
Step 3. Transfer to Storage
As I quickly mentioned above, this recipe doubles as a coconut oil lotion AND conditioner. I don’t know if it was originally intended for that, but it makes your skin soft and smooth and smells oh so good, so why not?
Using the Coconut Conditioner
I’m sure you know how to use conditioner so I’ll keep this short and simple! You don’t need to use too much of this DIY coconut conditioner. A small amount will do the job just fine.
I have very thick shoulder-length hair and used about the size of a dime on the lower half of my hair. It took a minute to really work the tiny amount through all my hair, but was worth it in the end.
The shower then smelled so soothing. It’s so luxurious and seriously makes you feel like you are at the spa! Afterward, as my hair dried, it became silky soft and smooth. I will definitely be using this again!
This homemade coconut conditioner smells so heavenly! I adore coconut for its taste and smell, and I had to remind myself it wasn’t food! Haha.
All in all, I was very impressed with this DIY conditioner concoction! Especially with its versatility!
