All-Natural Beauty: DIY Deep Hair Conditioner

I’ve enjoyed playing with make-up and hair since I was a little girl. I still love beauty products, so made an event out of throwing out my old school cosmetics for new clean and green ones. Since I’ve changed my lifestyle to eliminate toxins, I’ve come to appreciate all the many organic and natural products with few ingredients. At first, I scrutinized ingredients myself, then looked to well-credentialed sources like the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database. This is a fun adventure, but also can be time consuming and pricey. So, I set out to create some of my own. This short video demonstrates how to make a deep hair conditioner using only three ingredients.

All-Natural Beauty: DIY Deep Hair Conditioner

Have you ever created your own beauty products? If so, please share. If not, what is stopping you?


  1. I love this DIY, it seems really easy and very affordable compare to how much they are at the store. Need to try this!

    • Caryn Sullivan

      It is super easy. You can also put it in the blender and add water or milk (I’m vegan so don’t use milk) if you want it more liquified.Let me know if you try it and what you think.

    • Caryn Sullivan

      Thanks Melissa. It’s totally affordable AND easy. Plus, there are no chemicals just the wholesome ingredients so my hair felt awesome afterwards.

  2. I cringed when you put it in your hair! What does your hair feel like afterwards? I totally get it – just super scared to try it! lol!

    • Caryn Sullivan

      Yes, your hair will get hard after it’s been in your hair for 20-plus minutes. But, my hair felt smooth and strong afterwards, not slick like when I use a lot of store bought conditioner. Also, I should warn you, when you rinse out you will see little pieces of avocado or banana unless you stir it really well. You could probably blend it to make it more liquified. Some people use milk, too.

  3. I love avocados so much that I would be sad using it for beauty instead of eating it! Can I try this with overripe avocadoes?

    • I LOVE avocados, too. Yes, you can try them with overripe ones. Sometimes I throw my overripe ones in the fridge and they last a little longer. The riper the avocados (or bananas) the easier it is to make.

  4. Thank you Caryn for your useful tips.Is this conditioner suitable for all hair types?I have dry and tangled hair could you suggest me something?

    • Hi Ruby. Yes, this conditioner works with all hair types. If you have very dry hair, you may want to just use straight coconut oil. I sometimes put coconut oil on my ends and sleep in it. It is greasy, so be prepared, but it really helps. If you would prefer to buy one, Burt’s Bee’s makes an avocado conditioner that smells great and works well, too.
