Hey, Curlies!

I've been wanting to share a new DIY hair care recipe that I think you'll love. It's a thick and creamy deep conditioner perfect for thick and/or curly hair.

As you know, I'm a DIY girl and want to know what's in all of my products. That goes for food and beauty. When I learned how toxic many of our beauty products can be, that's when I started making my own and sharing my knowledge with you all. It's also why I started Make It Classy DIY Beauty Box.

While you can find more DIY beauty recipes here, let's get started on whipping up this protein-rich conditioner.


  • 1 teaspoon raw honey - great for keeping hair moisturized and shiny
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil - helps to lock in the moisture
  • 1-2 cups plain Greek yogurt (depending on hair length. I used 2 cups) - Brings the creaminess and protein.
  • 5 drops sage essential oil
  • 5 drops sweet orange essential oil


  • Mix all ingredients together until fully combined.
  • Apply generously to freshly washed hair
  • Apply a shower cap and let sit for 15-20 minutes
  • Rinse thoroughly with cool water
  • Style as usual

I absolutely love this conditioner because it gives my hair the protein it needs while also making my detangling session a breeze. Due to the olive oil content in this recipe, I didn't need to use any product to detangle my hair.

Since this is a protein conditioner, I don't recommend using this recipe often. Every other month should be just fine.

Try it out for yourself and let me know how it works out.
