Faith Amour Hair Care

Archive for the ‘Conditioner Recipes’ Category

Due to the myriad of shampoos, conditioners, and other styling products available, it may be hard to believe that something right in your kitchen cabinet could yield strong, shiny, luscious tresses. As many people try to move away from harsh detergents, drying gels, and waxy pomades, they venture into the world of more natural products. Many may not realize that Indian women, known for their lengthy, dark tresses, have been using yogurt for years to treat, grow, and preserve their locks.

Yogurt has the protein power to strengthen and moisturize your hair and to tame annoying fly aways by smoothing your strands. It is high in lactic acid, and has natural antifungal and antibacterial properties. The yogurt works to stimulate hair growth and fight dandruff by acting as a natural cleanser that tightens and clarifies the pores on your scalp.

Try this simple recipe as a pre-treatment: Simply whip, a sufficient amount to cover all of your hair, plain, unflavored yogurt in a bowl with a fork (for extra nourishment and moisture, you can also add extra virgin olive oil). Apply to dry hair. Part your hair in 1 inch sections and massage the yogurt into your scalp. Continue the process until the yogurt has been massaged into your entire scalp. Then thoroughly spread the remaining yogurt to the rest of your hair from roots to ends. Leave the yogurt in for 1-2 hours. Then rinse the yogurt out with lukewarm water and a mild shampoo. Voila! naturally beautiful hair.


Persimmon and Rosemary Conditioner


* 1 ripe persimmon
* 1 sprig rosemary
* 1/4 cup almond or olive oil
* 1/2 cup honey
* 4 drops peppermint oil, fresh mint leaves may be substituted

Cut persimmon in pieces and place in food processor or blender. Add remaining ingredients and blend until creamy. Apply to clean damp hair and scalp. Leave in for 20 minutes (a shower cap may be worn during this time). Rinse, dry and style as usual

* This conditioner is to be used immediately. It can be refrigerated for about 48 hours before it starts to turn colors

1/2 cup plain whole yogurt
1 egg
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon Vitamin E oil (optional)
1 teaspoon Honey
½ Avocado
4 drops Lavender oil

Place a half a cup of whole yogurt and honey in a blender. Yogurt is not only the creamy base of your conditioner, but is a gentle cleanser, working to clear the pores of your scalp and promoting hair growth. Yogurt is also naturally high in lactic acid, an element that will help to shine and smooth tangled hair, making it easier to comb, leaving your hair soft and beautiful.
Beat the egg until frothy and pour it into the blender. Raw eggs are said to strengthen and increase the elasticity of your hair, preventing damage and premature hair loss. Egg yolk especially is a deep penetrating moisturizer and will leave your hair silky and manageable.
Add one whole banana and ½ avocado to the blender. The skin of the scalp has a natural protective layer of fats that are meant to keep the skin moisturized to protect it from the elements. Often this layer is damaged with harsh chemical treatments and shampoos as well as other elements. Banana helps the skin to rebuild its own moisture level, protecting the scalp and hair and helping to cure dandruff due to dry flaky scalp.
Squeeze about one teaspoon of lemon juice into the mixture. Lemon is a natural astringent and will help to clean the hair of product buildup without damaging or drying your hair.
Include lavender oil and one teaspoon of Vitamin E oil into the conditioner.
Blend the conditioner and apply after shampooing, massaging gently into the scalp to the end of the hair. Allow the conditioner to set for about 15 minutes before rinsing well with luke-warm water. Apply as often as necessary for soft, healthy and manageable hair.
