What is the best natural leave-in hair conditioner?
Ours, of course! Young Living’s commitment to plant-based beauty knows no bounds. Not only does this DIY leave-in conditioner contain clean, wonder-working ingredients, but it’s also kind on the wallet. Don’t waste money on store-bought picks full of who knows what; instead, make this leave-in conditioner recipe and get ready for the compliments to come your way!
Why is our DIY leave-in conditioner so dang good?
It’s all about those natural, wonder-working ingredients! Dry hair doesn’t stand a chance against the lock-loving benefits of aloe vera juice, avocado oil and pure essential oils.
- Aloe vera juice comes from the same plant that aloe vera gel does. Similar to how you hydrate and soothe parched skin with aloe gel, you get a similar effect by applying aloe vera juice to your hair and scalp.
- Diluting your go-to conditioner with aloe vera juice makes it easier to spray on hydration without weighing down your hair. May we suggest switching to Copaiba Vanilla Conditioner to boost those hair care benefits?
- Avocado oil contains vitamins A, B, D, E and beta carotene. It is deeply moisturizing for your hair and scalp. Change the amount of avocado oil in the recipe, depending on the dryness of your hair and scalp.
- Although we may be biased, essential oils are the real winner here! Customize with your favourite essential oils to suit your specific hair needs.
