A deep-conditioning treatment for healthier locks.

Coconut oil assists in giving your hair full body and radiance. Coconut cream can be made by simmering 1 part shredded coconut with one part water or milk until frothy.

After straining the mixture through a cloth, the mixture should be left to cool and set. The thick, non-liquid part is coconut cream.

It is a great conditioner and helps in the re-growth of damaged hair. Yoghurt promotes hair growth, and makes hair easier to comb, an added bonus is that it gets rid of knots.

It can also prevent frizzy hair.

Here's how to make the treatment:

Ingredients:

4 tsp coconut oil

1/2  cup coconut cream

1/2 cup plain unflavoured whole yoghurt

1 tsp lime or lemon juice

Directions:

Mix coconut oil, coconut cream, yoghurt and lime or lemon juice together. Apply to wet and shampooed hair. Leave in for fifteen to twenty minutes under a plastic cap. Wrap an old t-shirt or cotton material around the plastic cap to trap heat and allow mixture to sit on hair. Wash out thoroughly after you remove the plastic cap and style as usual.
