Natural Hair Recipes: New Molasses and Coconut Cream Deep Conditioner

Honey, Molasses, Coconut Cream, Castor/Cayenne/Coconut Mix, Veggie Glycerin, and Peppermint Oil

Hey natural beauties! I came up with an altered version of my favorite homemade deep conditioner, for the cayenne pepper and castor oil challenge. As many of you may know, my favorite homemade deep conditioner is made with molasses and coconut cream, mixed with other natural ingredients. If you want to check out my original recipe, click here.

The new recipe that I developed is simple:

  • 2 tbsp. of Blue Mountain Country Natural Molasses
  • 4 tbsp. of Tropical Traditions Coconut Cream
  • 2 tbsp. of Castor Oil/Coconut Oil/Cayenne Pepper Mix
  • 2 tbsp. of Vegetable Glycerin
  • 1 tbsp. of Honey
  • 5 drops of Peppermint Oil
  • 1 oz. of Distilled Water

In a color bowl, I mixed  the molasses, castor oil mix, honey, and vegetable glycerin. Then I added 2 tbsp. of the coconut cream and blended the mix. I added the water, the peppermint drops, and finally the last 2 tbsp. of coconut cream to thicken the mixture up.

I let the mixture stand for a half hour before my application. I applied the deep conditioner to freshly washed damp hair, that was pre-pooed with the cayenne and castor oil mix, for 1 hour. I left the deep conditioner in my hair for 45 minutes, under a plaster baggy, and hot towel (didn’t feel like busting out the steamer because I had other things to get done).

When I rinsed the conditioner out of my hair, I was left with soft tiny curls. Check out the pictures below for each step of the deep conditioning making process.

    Hi Nina, I live in Jordan I looked for sugar cane molasses but couldn’t find any however they do sell Dates molasses, is it okay to use for the recipe above? Thanks

      Hi Neme,

      I’ve never heard of dates molasses before, until today. It sounds like something that I would like to try for cooking. This is a link to some of the health benefits of dates molasses, http://www.nutrition-and-you.com/dates.html.

      I couldn’t find any information on using it for hair. Blackstrap Molasses is the only kind that I that I know of that works for hair. If you do decide to try out the dates molasses in your recipe, please let me know how it worked.

        Many thanks for your reply+ info. I have looked on “Arabic websites” for Date Molasses and it’s use, they all mentioned hair loss but gave no recipe. With less info I am a bit sceptical to use it on my hair if I decided to do so will let you.

          You’re welcome sis. If they are using it as a hair loss treatment in Arabic countries, I would say give it a try! That’s how I found out about Blackstrap Molasses, I was iron deficient after giving birth, and I suffered a crazy amount of breakage. I’ve been using it in my homemade conditioning treatments ever since, and my hair isn’t breaking anymore. Good Luck with your recipe ;)

            Hi Nina, I tried a hair recipe from an Arabic webiste yesterday using a plant called Phyllanthus. Apparently Arabic women use it to straighten rough/ curly hair and Indian women use it for hair loss. I mixed 25g of Phyllanthus (dry and grinded) with 50ml of pure sesame oil as stated. When I put the mixture on my hair it felt a bit stiff but after washing and conditioning my hair it looked and felt softer ( being a Sudanese,we intend to have different kind of hairs) anyway I used my regular leave in conditioner and put my hair in a pony tail. This morning my hair feels a bit straight.
            Next time I will try the Okra recipe, I know it sounds strange however,a lot of sudaneses women are using it. Wish me Lucy:)

            Hey sis! Thanks for sharing your experience with me. The Okra treatment has me a bit intrigued because I would have never thought of that. The Phyllanthus treatment, is that an Ayurvedic treatment? I know that a lot of naturals here are using Ayurvedic treatment, although I have yet to try it myself. Good Luck with the Okra treatment, and please share your results.

            Hi Neme,

            I’ve never tried the Ayurvedic treatments myself, but from what I understand, they help with scalp issues like Alopecia. Here’s a link to a Youtube video on Ayurvedic treatments, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bWXkVvpCDY. Check it out and tell me what you think.

            I think I’ll be trying an Ayurvedic treatment soon.
