Technique Thursday: How I Mix My Deep Conditioner With Avocado And Honey

Happy Thursday Everyone!
                Today we are talking about the importance of deep conditioning your hair and how to make your deep conditioner last. Africa's Best Organics Hair Mayonnaise is used by many women in the natural hair community. It is also used by women who are relaxed (chemically treated hair). It works wonders and it is affordable. It is my go to deep conditioner because it is infused with lots of herbal ingredients that my hair likes.  So, to make my deep conditioner last a little longer, I add Avocado and honey to it. 
Deep conditioning your hair is something that you should do on a regular basis. Don't think that just because your hair is already healthy, you don't need it. When done well, a deep conditioning treatment can stop breakage, prevent split ends, improve elasticity and poor porosity.

Avocado contains proteins and vitamins, including A,D, E and B6. It also contains folic acid magnesium, copper, amino acids, and iron. All these ingredients help with both hair growth and nourishment. It is food for my hair! 

Honey is an anti-bacterial, which also attracts moisture. It contains vitamins and minerals. I use it to tame the extra protein in both the conditioner and the avocado because my hair is highly sensitive to protein. A light protein treatment is okay, but too much leaves my hair dry and prone to breakage. 

How I mix it: I scoop out the avocado (half) and add two tablespoons of honey to it. I blend the mixture before adding the desired amount of my deep conditioner. The measurements really depend on how long or how dry your hair is. I usually apply it after my hair is shampooed.

  1. Great recipe to give shine. My mom use to do mayonnaise to my hair when I was young sometimes I still do it but this one with avocado is the first for me. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I honestly didn't know the benefit of using avocado on your hair until recently. I am so afraid to try it. Lol I sure love to indulge on a slice with dumplings. Its a Jamaican things. Lol


  3. I have always wanted to try the avocado as a DC. Making note of your recipe for future use

  4. Wow I'm really learning a lot from your hair related posts. Avocado?!!! Wow - very new and interesting. Thanks for sharing. :-)


  5. Will have to try this someday.

  6. I love avocado oil but I'm afraid to try fresh avocado. If memory serves correct, the oil contains no proteins whereas fresh avocado does. You know my hair is protein phobic. OT: Your instagram photo that just popped up to the right made me smile -- you look gorgeous. The one with you sitting down. I will locate that photo on instagram and show you some love. TY for linking up with me! Awesome post.

  7. I think we are being over-dramatic with that hair wash thing, Onyeka! But it works for us. You are not missing anything if what you are doing works. Thanks for your sweet comment.

  8. Thanks, Jay! It is my pleasure to be part of this link-up.

  9. I know avocado is really good I should use it more often.. Great post.

  10. I usually do these kinds of treatments before I shampoo my hair because I can't seem to rinse them out with plain water - and I don't like only noticing the residue of the hair mask when I'm done styling my hair :D Thanks for the recipe, I'm definitely going to try it out! My hair really needs it :)
