My friend Stephanie is a health food nut who refuses to put anything chemical on her body or her hair. So when I asked her how she keeps her naturally curly hair so glossy she gave me her recipe for this deep conditioning treatment she uses about once a month. She also loves it because it’s a great way to get rid of ripe bananas and avocados.
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 tbsp of wheatgerm oil (I said to Stephanie, “Wheatgerm oil? Who has wheatgerm oil hanging around the house?” and she looked at me as if was the only person she knew who doesn’t use wheatgerm oil on a regular basis). You can substitute olive oil if you, like me, don’t have wheatgerm oil or time to run to your health food store for some.
- A few drops of essential oils, such as lavender, rose, sweet orange, or jasmine. Stephanie uses essential oils to mask the smell of the wheatgerm oil.
