10 Best Homemade Conditioners For Curly Hair

By Anubha Das

Updated - Nov. 11, 2021 8 min read

Anyone with curly hair can tell you that caring for it is similar to caring for a child. It requires continual nurturing and careful treatment, and if you don't give it what it wants, it will show tantrums by frizzing up. Women with curly hair have two major complaints: it dries out quickly and tends to get frizzy.


It is because your curls impede the natural oil from your scalp from travelling down the length of your hair. As a result, your curly hair becomes dehydrated and is often in dire need of moisture. While store-bought conditioners nourish your hair, the slew of chemicals they contain may cause long-term damage. What's the alternative? Of course, homemade conditioners for curly hair!

Here we bring you 10 homemade conditioner that will work like magic on curly hair:


1. Greek yogurt & coconut milk deep conditioner

Greek yoghurt is one of those incredibly refreshing delights that is ideal for breakfast. But you may not have realised that it can also be used to make a deep conditioner for curly hair. Not only can greek yoghurt and coconut milk nourish and mend damaged hair, but they also assist in opening up and defining your curls.  

What you need

  • 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt

  • ¼ cup coconut milk

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 4 drops lavender essential oil

How to do it?

  1. In a mixing dish, combine all of the ingredients.

  2. To make application easier, divide your hair into 6-8 parts.

  3. Apply this conditioner to each region of your hair, ensuring that it is well covered from the roots to the tips.

  4. Put your hair up in a bun and cover it with a shower cap.

  5. Allow 45 minutes for the conditioner to work.

  6. Hair should be washed and shampooed as usual.

2. Egg & olive oil hair conditioner

You might be a little put off by the idea of putting raw eggs in your curly hair, but bear with me. It is because eggs include vitamin A, which improves sebum production and so increases your hair's ability to hydrate itself. Olive oil hydrates your hair as well. Both of these components work together to reduce frizz and smooth out your curls. No doubt it is one of the best homemade hair conditioners for curly hair.

What you need

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

How to do it?

  1. Combine the egg and olive oil in a mixing bowl.

  2. This combination should be applied to dry hair all over.

  3. Put on a shower cap and blow dry for 10 minutes on low heat.

  4. Hair should be washed and shampooed with cool water.

It cleans the filth and debris from your scalp while nurturing your curls when used as a DIY natural shampoo-cum-conditioner for curly hair.

What you need

  • 1 ripe avocado

That's a disgusting combo that you probably wouldn't put in your hair. But believe us when we tell you it works. First and foremost, mayonnaise is known for performing wonders on curly hair by reducing frizz and adding definition to curls. Egg white includes lutein, which makes your curls oh-so-shiny. While yoghurt moisturises your hair, egg white contains lutein, which makes your curls oh-so-shiny. So, give this natural conditioner a try and see for yourself.

What you need

9. Persimmon hair conditioner

I won't blame you for not knowing what a persimmon is because it's a fairly obscure fruit. This orange-colored fruit is high in vitamins A, B, and C, which promote hair growth and make your curls appear fuller. Combine it with honey and essential oils to treat and repair your curly hair from the inside out.

What you need1 persimmon

  • ¼ cup honey

  • 1 twig dried rosemary

  • 3 tablespoons almond oil

  • 5 drops lavender essential oil

How to do it?

  1. In a food processor, peel and crush the persimmon.

10. Aloe vera & sweet almond oil hair conditioner

This soothing aloe vera and sweet almond oil conditioner will make your curls seem smooth and lustrous. Aloe vera gel is a natural emollient that reduces frizz by smoothing the hair cuticle. However, it is especially beneficial for curly hair because it both supplies and seals moisture. Sweet almond oil, on the other hand, gives your curls the lustre and shine you've always desired.

What you need

  • 2 tablespoons aloe vera gel

  • 1 tablespoon sweet almond oil

  • ½ cup water

How to do it?
