Utensils

1 bowl

1 spoon/ spatula

1 jar (8-16 oz)

 

Ingredients

2 tablespoons of Agave Nectar

2 cups of a moisturizing deep conditioner

2 tablespoons of Budding Butter Treat

3 tablespoons of Rose Petal Powder

1 tablespoon of Amla Powder

1 teaspoon of Lemon Peel Powder 

1 teaspoon of Wheat Germ Oil

 

Steps

  • Blend all of the ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Divide the mixture. Save what you will not use today in a jar. Then use what you've kept in the bowl. 
  • Apply mask to the hair. Leave in for 20-30 mins.
  • Rinse out with cool water.
*Be sure to use the left over conditioner mixture within 2 weeks. Although the store bought deep conditioner has preservatives in it...it only contains enough to preserve itself. Any additives to a hair products diminishes the shelf life greatly.

*If you are worried about the acidity of the lemon peel powder, since it does have a low pH, just leave it out. If there are any ingredients used that you are allergic to be sure to substitute it with an ingredient that you love.

That's the great thing about DIY it's all about what you like. Enjoy!
