The second DIY protein conditioner is just as simple as the first and it involves full fat plain Greek Yogurt, it is called:
2. The Greek Yogurt Protein Deep Conditioner(affiliate link) – I love this conditioner because like the first it has properties that not only predominately promote strength but it adds a bit of moisture too. The shine and easy detangling are just added benefits for your enjoyment.
The Greek yogurt is high in protein and can be used to mend chemically processed or distressed hair making it perfect for those of us who need a bit of help in that area.
What you will need:
1 canister of Greek Yogurt
Yep, that’s it – all you need in order to condition your hair. Of course that might just be way too simple for you, so feel free to add some moisturizing things that you hair like. Aloe Vera juice(affiliate link) is a great addition, or olive oil(affiliate link) to amp up the benefits of the protein treatment.
Apply the conditioner from root to tip according to the length of your strands then cover with a plastic cap and you can leave the mix on for 20 minutes. Feel free to use a heat source to give things a boost as you deep condition.
Just like the conditioner before you can apply your yogurt mix before you shampoo or you can apply it after you shampoo your hair.
The key is to ensure that all of the yogurt is rinsed out of your hair completely because it can leave a bit of a smell that doesn’t do well in social situations.
If you want to recondition your hair with something that smells great, feel free to do that or you can use a great smelling leave in before styling your hair.
For either of these simple recipes, feel free to switch oils(affiliate link) around or even add something else that you know your hair likes, like mayonnaise for the first one or apple cider vinegar(affiliate link) for the second one.
Have you done a protein treatment lately?
