Many years ago I was introduced to a DIY Goat’s Milk Conditioner Recipe. You’ll find the original recipe here. For no reason, other than being distracted by all the hair product choices, I stopped using it.
I’m now back to using this amazing hair strengthener but I updated the recipe a bit. I share how to make it in this video on How to Make Fine Hair Stronger:
The main changes I made to this recipe are the oils I used to mix it.
Original vs Updated Goat’s Milk Conditioner Recipe
In the original goat’s milk conditioner recipe I used these oils:
- Coconut oil
- Jojoba oil
- Olive oil
- Eucalyptus Essential Oil
In the updated version of this strengthening treatment I’m using these oils:
- Coconut oil
- Sweet Almond oil
- Camellia oil
- Jamaican Black Castor Oil w/ Rosemary
- Tea Tree Essential Oil
Benefits of the Oils in This DIY Conditioner
It’s good to switch up your oils from time to time. Both versions of this DIY conditioner recipe are effective. You should use the oils that work best for your hair.
Coconut oil helps with protecting the protein integrity of the hair. Sweet almond and Olive oils help with fostering moisture in the hair.
Jojoba oil promotes thickness and fosters moisture retention.
Camellia oil softens the hair, adds shine and helps smooth split ends. Here’s an organic brand I like.
Jamaican black castor oil stimulates hair growth, strengthens, prevents hair breakage and healing.
Lastly, both Tea Tree and Rosemary essential oils promote hair growth and scalp health.
Using any of these oils interchangeably will yield similar results.
It’s no secret that fine hair needs protein to stay strong and fortified. There are many protein treatments available in stores. Yet, you don’t really know what’s in those products.
When you make your own hair care products, you know exactly what it is that formulates them and the benefits of each of those ingredients.
Lastly, with fine hair being so fragile and prone to breakage, you definitely want to be using products that fortify and strengthen. Read about the benefits of goats milk for your hair here.
