The first recipe sounds like a great pre-poo/dry DCner.

My hair is waist length. I use the GNC coconut oil alone, on my ends or as a deep conditioning treatment. It is amazing.

Do foodstuff like Avocado, Yoghurt, Banana etc spoil in conditioners? How long can you keep a DIY conditioner for?

They do spoil, so you can’t keep DIY conditioners for too long. I suggest making enough for one use at a time. You can refrigerator any leftovers you have (never keep at room temp!) but even then you can probably push it to just another few days max. If you’re really serious about keeping your concoctions long term you’d have to purchase a preservative and add it in.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
