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.
Measure 1/4 cup of store-bought hair conditioner of your choice into a measuring cup.
Put a funnel in the mouth of small spray bottle.
Pour the conditioner into the funnel.
Add 1/8 cup of oil of your choice, 1 1/2 oz. of distilled water, 1 tbsp. silk peptide powder and 1 tbsp. vegetable glycerin to the bottle.
Add three to five drops of your favorite essential oil.
Screw the spray top on the bottle and shake the bottle vigorously.
