Ayurvedic Deep Condition

In my previous post i mentioned Ayurvedic hair treatment benefits, and the fact that I incorporate Ayurveda into my regime every 2nd week of the month a.k.a week 2 of my regime (as seen in my 2011 Hair Regime).

Because of time I use a very simple mix which doesn't include as many ingredients as those on the list in the initial 'Ayurvedic Product list'


Ingredients: Pure coconut oil, vatika oil, neem powder, shea butter (not on the Ayurvedic list but good for hair softening).

1- Pre-poo overnight with 100% coconut oil under shower cap.
2- After main wash commence to Deep condition
3- Mix shea butter, vatika oil, neem powder and pure coconut oil ( warm slightly to melt if hard)
4- Apply all over hair and then cover with shower cap.
5- Just shower cap- leave for 1 or 2 hours/ under dryer- leave for 20/30 mins (low heat)

I did this just last week and it made my hair very soft and full of moisture. It's also probably the reason why my hair turned out so well for P1 of the 'Shampoo then what series'.

  1. Sorry Fiona, but you know the last step (number 5), do you wash out the mixture after 2hours? if so with what? Shampoo or conditioner? sorry if it's a silly question. Thanks

  2. Hey R,

    of course its not a silly question. I usually wash it out with water and then some conditioner so give it some final nutrition x

  3. Hi Fiona

    What Coconut oil do you use. I bought one and it didn't have any smell whatsoever (very disappointing).


  4. Hi Angeldust.. what a cool online name :) I buy mine from a local herbal store. If you are UK based Holland and Barretts is the perfect stop!

  5. Hi Fiona

    I recently started following u. U recently mentioned that ur hair type is a 4b is that the texture of it or how thick it is or just the color type. Is it important to do a deep conditioner once a month.

    1. Hi Anon :) In al honesty I tend to drift from curl types however all in all 4b refers to the curl pattern :) I am a die hard fan of deep conditioning and personally do it twice a month at the very least. My hair craves moisture and I find deep conditioning is like a hair spa treatment for me x
