A simple an effective Goat Milk Conditioner Recipe guaranteed to transform fine hair.

I shampoo’d with the Shea Moisture shampoo you see pictured here.

A couple of days ago I shared my first time bentonite clay experience. Well, before that natural hair treatment, I tried another: A Goat Milk Conditioner.

I found out about this conditioner recipe from my friend Shelli of Hairscapades. She once shared her recipe and while I had been intrigued to try it, I was too lazy to go shop for the ingredients (although they are few).

It was actually a good thing that I waited because I got to see the progress that Shelli was having using goat’s milk as a conditioner. Let’s just say she was a great skapegoat (no pun). OK guinea pig. 🙂

Shelli’s hair has flourished since incorporating the DIY goat milk conditioner recipe into her hair regimen. She reports stronger hair and much less shedding.


While, I’ve never personally had an issue with over shedding I decided to finally give the goat’s milk a whirl because my hair has been stuck at the same length for some time now.

So, I whipped up my own recipe and tweaked it a little by adding a little more guar gum to thicken the mixture even further. I then applied it to my hair and sat with my Hot Head conditioning cap on for 20 minutes (reheated it in the microwave once).

The results after one conditioning session were stellar. My hair felt stronger to the touch, it was easy to detangle and boy was it shiny.

This Goat’s Milk Conditioner is definitely a staple now. I was able to purchase the goat’s milk, guar gum, honey and oils all at my local supermarket.

UPDATE: It’s been over a year since I began using the Goat’s Milk Conditioning Hair Mask and this is definitely a forever staple. My hair has gotten stronger and more fortified. Check out all the goat milk benefits here.

I’ve also added the use of Indian Herbs to my hair care regimen. You can read more about it below:

    Im planong on ising this DIY next week ! I couldn’t find the guar gum tho. Can I substitute it with Gilatin powder ? Or mayne starch ? Can that work as a thikinig agent without compromising the benefits of goats milk???

    1. I’d stick with either guar or xanthan gum. You can get them at the grocery store.
