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.
