Natural Hair:: DIY Deep Conditioner: Yogurt with Cocoa Powder

Heeeey 🙂

I’m so excited to tell ya’ll about this hair recipe!! I thought it up all by my lil ol’ self… anywho.. 🙂 well, not really but I did “think” of the ingredients and googled to make sure that the ingredients I had on hand wouldn’t damage my hair.

This is so simple and very easy to rinse out. 

  Here is the recipe:

1 – 6oz container of greek yogurt plain (the label said it had double the protein of other yogurts)

2 tablespoons cocoa powder (pure organic)

2 tablespoons almond oil

1 tablespoon olive oil

2  tablespoons honey

2-3 drops of peppermint oil

Combine everything into a bowl and stir until it reaches the consistency of cake frosting. Section your hair  and apply the mask from root to tip. Put any plastic covering on your hair and allow to sit for 30 minutes. Rinse. Shampoo. Condition. Style as usual. It’s super easy.

My hair covered in the peppermint patty mask

Wash and Go After the Peppermint Patty Mask

My Experience with the Peppermint Patty Mask: … This mask smelled so good. It was a treat putting it in on my hair..I parted my hair into about 8 sections and applied the mask from tips to root.. the ends of my hair were thirsty!  I covered my hair with a plastic target bag and kept it on for about 35-45 minutes. I rinsed it out in the shower and continued with my normal shampoo and conditioning process.

OMG, my hair was so soft and shiny and I can’t tell you how good my bathroom smelled!! The aroma of  the peppermint and chocolate combined was so decadent.  I’m adding this simple process to my regimen at least 2x a month. It’s such a treat.

Sooo, it’s share with me time…….What’s your go-to DIY hair recipe?

Enjoy Your Journeys. ~ Kristi

    This looks so awesome! So I have porous, thick coarse but fine 4b hair and it likes protein. What do you think about yogurt powder instead of cocoa powder?

    I just made your Peppermint Patty Hair Mask with some tweaks. Here are the ingredients I used:
    3/4 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
    3 tbsp melted coconut oil
    2 tbsp cocoa powder
    1 tbsp raw honey
    1 tbsp food-grade aloe vera gel
    5 drops of peppermint essential oil

    My hair felt SUPER moisturized after using the mask. I’ll definitely use it again. Thank you for the idea!
