Staple: DIY Goat’s Milk Honey & Oils Conditioner Recipe

Fine hair needs protein. Many focus on moisture and neglect the fact that protein is just as important.  I’ve used numerous hair products for protein treatments but I must say that the DIY Goat’s Milk Recipe I got from Hairscapades is one of the best. I’ve since altered the recipe to suit my hair’s needs.

I’ve been using goat’s milk in conjunction with natural oils and essential oils for over a year now. This recipe is protein and moisture balanced. My hair never feels hard after use, only strong.

How I use the DIY Goat’s Milk Hair Conditioner

This conditioner prevents my hair from weakening due to daily manipulation and external factors like cold weather. While I only use it once a month during the summer months, the remaining months of the year, I use goat’s milk, honey and natural oils on a more regular basis (2-3 times per month). Sometimes, after rinsing I will follow up with a hair rinse or rinse out conditioner (like Shea Moisture’s Zanzibar Marine Complex)

In this video I demonstrate how I make and apply my goat’s milk conditioner:

Best Features

Aside from the obvious hair strengthening, one of the things I like best about this recipe is the amount of slip it is. Like I mention in the video, the slip is amazing! I also love that I can get a most excellent conditioning with ingredients that can be found right in an average kitchen.

DIY Goat’s Milk Conditioner Recipe Ingredients

– 1/4 cup of Goat milk (Evaporated in a can OR the equivalent from powdered goat milk)
– 1/2 tablespoon Organic jojoba oil
– 1/2 tablespoon Extra virgin coconut oil (can omit if your hair doesn’t particularly care for coconut oil)
– 1/2 tablespoon Olive Oil (sub: grapeseed oil)
–  Dropper full of Eucalyptus Oil (I alternate using tea tree and rosemary oil, sometimes both. All 3 of these essential oils stimulate growth)
– Squirt of Organic Honey
– Guar gum (approximately 1/2 teaspoon)

  1. Hi, I am soon getting a gastric bypass surgery. And I have long dredlocks down my back. I am in great fear of losing my beautiful crown. Please any advice ?

  2. Hi Michelle. Where is the video to mske this DC? Also, how can make yhis a protein-free DC? Think i have protein overload as via henna glosses and apparently i used Aphgee after a monthly break from the henna gloss. Can you help me regain my elasticity and slip? Or do i just have to keep DCing till the protein wears off?

    1. the goat’s milk is the main thing 🙂 Yes it’s protein but it is balanced out with the oils and honey in it. Try it just once but don’t do any other treatments with protein or henna. When you are done using the goat’s milk conditioner, you do a deep conditioner. It works REALLY well.

      Here’s all the videos I did on the use of this DIY goat’s milk conditioner:
