Every now and then, I try out new ingredients for a deep conditioner. Now that I’m working on new ingredients and recipes to expand the Nina’s Favorites line, I’m experimenting a bit more. I’m not one to be stingy with sharing my recipes because everything is trial and error for me. As I continue to expand my line, I will choose a few select recipes here and there to share with you all. I’ve always been known for my experimental concoctions for my hair, and I would like to continue to give Natural Nina readers recipes to experiment with on their own.
The Honey Molasses Deep Conditioner recipe is something that I came up with using two different ingredients than my last deep conditioner recipe. This recipe is not a new recipe, instead it’s an attempt to perfect a previous recipe of mine by upgrading the ingredients.
I switched the recipe around a bit, and this is what I came up with:
Honey Molasses Deep Conditioner with Coconut Cream Recipe
- 4 tbsps. of Tropical Traditions Coconut Cream
- 2 tbsps. of Castor Oil/Coconut Oil/Cayenne Pepper Mix
- 2 tbsps. of Vegetable Glycerin
- 2 tbsps. of Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey
- 1.0 ml. of Neem Oil
- 2 tbsp. of Blue Mountain Country Natural Molasses
- 1 oz. of Distilled Water
The ingredients blended into a nice creamy consistency, after I mixed each ingredient in one by one, starting with the coconut cream and honey. The molasses was blended into the mix, followed by the vegetable glycerin. The final ingredients added to the deep conditioner were the CCC mix, neem oil, and water.
I pre-pood and washed my hair as I normally do, then I added the conditioner and sat under the steamer for twenty minutes. After a quick rinse, I was left with soft shiny curls and kinks. This is one recipe that I may have finally perfected. I can’t wait to share my next mixology mission with you all. I’ll give you a hint, It involves shea butter.
