How to Make Creamy Leave-in Conditioner

Laura Vryhof/Demand Media

Creamy leave-in conditioner (hair conditioner that isn't rinsed out after it's applied) keeps your hair moist. It's rubbed or sprayed into your hair when it's dry. To make your own, you will add an oil--such as olive oil, coconut or avocado--to give your hair luster, and silk peptide powder to make it soft. You can also pick your favorite essential oil to add for fragrance, but consider whether the scent will complement the conditioner if you use coconut oil (since it has a strong smell) or the store-bought conditioner you use is scented.
