DIY Hair Conditioners

If your hair is dry and lacks luster, you can go to the salon and spend $30 to $50 on a conditioning treatment, or you can do it yourself right at home!

"Everybody needs a good conditioning treatment. It's a form of bringing life back to the hair, bringing nutrients back to the hair," says Mario Tort, Owner of Estilo Salon & Spa.

He recommends doing a treatment at least once a week and even making your own!


  • 1/4 cup aloe vera gel (to strengthen the hair follicle)
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil (to promote moisture in the hair)
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (to remove any build up on the hair follicle)
  • 6 tsp powdered milk (to promote protein in the hair)
  • 1-2 kiwis (to promote vitamin c)

Blend all of the ingredients until smooth. Apply the mixture to dry hair. Let it sit for 15 minutes. Rinse and shampoo as normal.


  • 1 tsp of honey (to promote moisture and add nutrients)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil (for moisture)
  • 1 egg (for protein, split ends, dry hair)
  • 2-4 cantaloupe slices (for vitamin C and shine)

Blend all the ingredients. Apply it to dry hair. Then, wet a towel with hot water, wring it out, and wrap it around the head. Put a shower cap on top and let sit for 15 minutes. Then, rinse, shampoo, and blow dry.


  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 3-4 medium strawberries
  • 3-4 capsules of vitamin E (clipped and squeezed)

Blend all of the ingredients. Apply the shine mask to dry hair. Allow to sit for 15 minutes. Then, rinse, shampoo and blow dry.
