My hair is soo dry lately. I know I need to eat more fats and so I'm trying to do that, but does anyone have recs for a deep conditioning treatment or something I can DIY at home?

I use a bit of coconut oil after I shower to make things smooth and shiny. Olive oil is also good to use as a deep treatment. Currently I use a deep conditioner by Giovanni.

banana and avocado are both nice as hair masks, and I like red palm oil slathered on and left in for a couple hours as well.

I pour 1/2 olive and 1/2 coconut oil into my conditioner, mix and let it sit on my head for about an hour before shampooing it out. Sometimes I cover it up with a shower cap and exercise, so it's like a heat treatment.

if you have time freeze the banana and then let it thaw out- for some reason doing that prevents little bits that stick in your hair and make it hard to rinse out.

For anyone reading this thread looking for a more conventional deep conditioner, I really like Ojon. It seems spendy for the price, but you use so little of it and it lasts forever. It has a really smoky, almost cigar like smell to it...which sounds weird but I love it.

I have the Ojon as well, but it's really just American palm oil jacked up in price. You can find it cheaper in some ethnic grocery stores.

I use Thriven from KillerStrands.com. It's $52 for 8 oz., but I only use it once a week and my hair has really loved it. I don't use it as recommended however. I use it for about 4 hours before showering and then shampoo it out. I only do this because I have very, very, very fine hair. The recommended way is to sleep in it for 7-8 hours and then simply rinse your hair and style. Mine doesn't really work out with using it that way. Here's the link if anyone is interested: http://killerstrands.myshopify.com/products/thriven I bought it in the kit with the 2 oz. Gleam oil in. . . March? And I still have 3/4 of the conditioner and 1/2 the oil. It's worth the money.

Good to know! Too bad we're lacking in ethnic grocery stores in this city.

I've also seen glass jars of red palm oil at Whole Foods, they look like the jars of coconut oil. I usually order some cheaper from Garden of Wisdom though.
