Hey ladies, Knowing the importance of moisturizing and conditioning our AuNaturale's.  I 've found some really great conditioning recipes that will aid us in helping to keep our AuNaturale's in tip top shape.

Deep hair conditioner recipes you can make at home:

Tropical Conditioner

Hello Zainab I tried the avocado and coconut milk on more than 1 occassion and it left me hair so dry I was scared to comb it. What can I do? I even add a little rosemary infused olive oil and it was still the same.

Hi April , I am so sorry to here that you had this problem. Maybe you could try a different recipe of your liking , if you wish. Let me just say that everything doesnt work for all hair types , I know this from many failed attemps at different products ( lol) . So what I do is if I use something on my hair 1 time and it doesn't give me the results I was looking for I will not use it again. Also , I've just recently used a recipe I found from another natural site , and let me tell you I looooved the results, let me share it with you here. I co- wash only , rarely will I use shampoo . So I use conditioner only to wash my hair along with my conditioner I mix bit of honey ( maybe 2 tablespoon full or so) along with a bit of baking soda, not to much ) the honey acts as a greeeat moisturizer, and the baking soda acts as an cleaning agent since I dont use shampoo with out stripping my hair of natural oils, plus helps to remove the honey. Now if youre unsure about the baking soda , just try it with out. I'm not sure if this will help you ,or if this is what youre looking for. But I hope you have great success with this. I dont allllways use every single recipe that I post , When I find these recipes they have very good natural ingredients, And I always think some one may benefit from it and what may not work for one another may have great success. Here I will leave you the sisters site , she also has agreat banana honey recipe I used on my hair that worked great as well. I plan on doing a post on honey it really is a great moisturizer, I know this from shear experience. Her link is:
Good luck, April. I really hoped this helped a little, if there is anything else I can do to help please feel free to contact me. This is why I love the idea of blogs to help each other out, good luck . Take cake ( smiles)

Jazakumallahu khair for your kind words on my blog. MashaAllah it really touched me that you found benefit in my blog. I was so moved by your words subhanAllah. I am glad that someone found a benefit in what I say.

I tried so hard as well to post a comment to your blog but I had such a problem. I kept trying and it finally worked. I was glad I wasn't spamming you (smile).

MashaAllah ukhti your blog is so wonderful and full of encouragement for us sisters with curly hair. Please continue to do what you do. It is a huge step to keep our hair curly as it isn't accepted as much as straight hair. Your blog encourages sisters to embrace what Allah has given us in a beautiful manner MashaAllah.

I am wishing all of you an early Ramadhaan Kareem and may Allah accept your good deeds and mine allahumma ameen

PS: I didn't approve your comment on my blog because I thought maybe it was a personal message to me and not for everyone passing through to read. But if you don't mind, I will approve it.
