no-‘poo friendly deep conditioners (no oils!)

a lot of you guys have gone no-‘poo and experienced dry, brittle hair. and a lot of you are only using the baking soda method, so doing the coconut oil mask is (sadly) out of the question.

well my dear readers, i have scoured the internet world for a way for you to moisturize your hair, be able to stick with the baking soda, be able to stick with the organic/natural route, AND not break the bank! *high five*

natural deep conditioners (no-poo friendly)

here are my personal top choices that will wash out easily for you no-‘poo-ers.
MIX & MATCH the following, based on what you need!

RAW HONEY (my top choice for moisture, softness & shine!)
– moisturizing
– humectant

ALOE
– remedy for itchy scalp
– moisturizing
– humectant
– adds shine

PLAIN, ORGANIC YOGURT
– softening
– strengthening

AVOCADO
– softening
– adds shine

EGG YOLKS (my top choice for strength & shine!)
– reduce breakage
– strengthening

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR (ACV)
– adds shine
– softening

and here are some POPULAR COMBOS:
*ideally, you want to do these in the shower after you wash your hair, but beforehand is perfectly fine! also, these will drip, so put your hair up in an old plastic grocery bag or shower cap :)

ALOE & HONEY
– homemade aloe gel OR a store bought one with NO fragrance, alcohol, or dyes!!
– raw honey
1. blend (yes, in a blender) 1/4 cup aloe gel and 2 tablespoons raw honey until smooth & consistent
2. apply all over hair (root to ends) and leave on for 15-20 minutes
3. rinse with water

EGG YOLK & YOGURT (intensive protein treatment for brittle hair!)
– 1 egg yolk
– 1/2 cup plain, organic yogurt (because you don’t want sugar in your hair lol)
1. mix egg yolk and yogurt in a small bowl until consistent
2. apply to hair and leave on 15-20 minutes
3. rinse with water

AVOCADO, HONEY, & ACV (for dry hair!)
– 1/2 ripe banana
– 1/2 avocado
– 2 tablespoons honey
– 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1. blend all ingredients in a blender. you may need to add water if it’s too thick
2. apply to hair and leave on for 15-20 minutes
3. rinse with water

  1. I’ve been RMO for about 2 years and I’ve noticed that my hair is a little dry and more split ends. I condition with coconut milk and essential oils. Should I try the egg and yogurt conditioner for a change?
    I love the freedom of water only…

  2. How much raw honey and aloe do you use for one wash and do you apply from roots to ends? Do you deep condition in between washes, right before you wash or at the end of your wash? Thanks for the advice!

  3. Not sure if anyone is reading these comments anymore… If anyone has something to add I would love to read it! I do the water only washing method, and I love it. I live in a dry cabin (no running water) and though I still shower every other day at relatives houses I rarely wash my hair. My hair is shoulder length, and recovering from dying it a few times since 2012. Prior to using WOW I used coconut oil hair masks weekly – daily to help strengthen and grow my hair. After reading the posts and comments it seems that it is generally advised NOT to use coconut oil hair masks if you are doing WOW… Is this true? I still want an easy mask that will strengthen my hair and help it to grow faster, longer, fuller. Coconut oil masks have been my favorite, can I still use them? Or will it set me back to early WOW use when my hair was transitioning and greasy? Any opinions are appreciated!
