DIY Coconut Rose Oil Hair Conditioner Tutorial

Ten years ago I had a terrible reaction to some store-bought skincare products and from that time on...I've been dabbling in making my own skincare, bath & body and hair care products. One of the things I like about making your own is the simple fact that you can control the ingredients that go in them. Second, you know the product is fresh (not 3 years old from sitting on a store shelf) and finally, I find that I get better results with products that are handmade.

Today I'm sharing with all of you a guest post tutorial on how you can make your own 3-in-1 hair mask, deep hair conditioner and conditioning leave-in treatment. If you follow the step-by-step instructions, you'll see how easy it is to make your own!

3 in 1 natural recipe acts as a hair mask, deep conditioner & leave-in treatment

"I’ve always been good at conditioning my hair — I condition religiously, in fact. However, some mistakes resulted in hair that needed serious resuscitation, and so I was on a mission to find the best products to help," explains Wendy Rose Gould beauty expert for hair tutorial and advice site Latest-Hairstyles.com.

"I found some good ones, of course, but as a DIY-er, I also concocted my own deep conditioner. I consider this DIY hair conditioner a moisture bomb, of sorts, as it’s loaded with hair-loving oils and butter. To give it an extra personal twist, I even added a little bit of rose oil. Here’s the 100% original recipe and how-to."

DIY Coconut Rose Oil Hair Conditioner Tutorial

5 Tbs Shea Butter
3 Tbs. Coconut Oil
1 tsp. Dr. Bronners’ Pure Castille Soap
1 tsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
15 drops 100% Camellia Seed Oil
6 Drops of Rose Essential Oil (or scented to preference)

Step 1

Combine three tablespoons of shea butter and three tablespoons of coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave until everything’s melted and mix well.

Step 2
Add your castille soap, olive oil, camellia seed oil and rose scent. The castille soap will help during the rinsing process, the camellia seed oil will soften, and the coconut oil, shea butter and olive oil will provide intense moisture to restore shine and strength to your hair. The rose scent isn’t necessary, but it’ll add a little bit of rose fragrance if you’re into it.

Step 3

Place the mixture into the fridge or freezer until it’s cool, but not solid.

Step 4

Add your remaining two tablespoons of shea butter to the mixture and whip with a hand mixer. It’ll turn into a normal, conditioner-like consistency.

Step 5

Place in a container and date it. The conditioner should last up to 30 days.


This conditioner works in multiple ways.

Deep Conditioner: After shampooing, apply the DIY conditioner. Let it set for three to five minutes, then rinse. Consider this a deep conditioner and only use it once or twice a week.

Conditioning Mask: This is my favorite way to use the conditioner. Simply apply to ends of dry hair and let it set for 15 to 20 minutes before shampooing.

Leave-In Conditioner: If you have very dry hair, or coarse/textured hair, this is a good option. Rub a dime-sized amount of the conditioner into your hands and apply to your ends of damp hair. Style as normal. You can also apply to the ends of day two or three hair for a little bit of a boost.
