Olive Oil Homemade Deep Conditioner for Damaged Hair & Growth | 4B & 4C Hair / Black African Hair / Afro Hair / Curly Hair
A very warm welcome back to the Jostylin blog. Hope you are all enjoying this new year 2018. Today I am coming at you with a new olive oil deep conditioner for damaged hair I have been applying to my hair last couple of months. It is probably one of the best deep conditioner remedies for breakage and growth that I have tried. It has 75% stopped breakage and shedding on my hair. I am still debating what makes this recipe so good – whether it’s the olive oil I am using or if its the combination of the all the ingredients.
If you guys follow me on Youtube or Instagram, you will notice that I frequently visit Turkey. There is an abundance of hair growth remedies here in Turkey and this particular remedy is one I discovered during my stay there.
My visits to Turkey also means I am always able to get my hand on some of the best olive oils ever produced. The crazy thing is that, almost 90% of olive oils stocked in grocery stores across the world are not real olive oil – this is something I only found out since I started visiting Turkey. When you get your hands in the real olive oil, you will be shocked at how fast your hair will flourish and how quickly breakage will stop.
I am 100% sure that this treatment will stop breakage on your hair also. However, if your hair is still breaking, check out my article with my other tips on how to stop breakage on natural 4c hair.
I will add some new pictures on this article very soon and follow up on a monthly basis with progess. This is my second month so far and my hair is flourishing. Continue reading to find out why I started the deep conditioning and also for the full recipe.

Why Am I Deep Conditioning My Hair?
Now the big question is why am I deep conditioning my hair? and why is it important to deep condition hair? Again if you have been following me over the years, you will be aware that I have been blow drying my hair for the last 8 years – literally non stop blow drying every week. The last 2 months has been the longest break I have had away from the blow dryer, and I am using this heat free period to deep condition my hair on a weekly basis.
My purpose for deep conditioning is mainly because I want to make sure that before my hair reaches its terminal length, it stays in tip top condition, to avoid thinning ends. Also back in 2016, I flat ironed my hair which resulted in some minor breakage (I purposefully chose the image above because that was the time I flat ironed back in 2016).
Even though I have been blow drying for 8 years I never experienced damage at all. But the combination of me flat ironing my hair and not adding water for two weeks straight during the time it was flat ironed, just completely wrecked the ends of my hair.
I have now been deep conditioning for 2 months and my hair is back to its glorious state. As I said I will update this article with new comparison images in a few weeks time and I will also do a 2018 length check update video very soon (which makes me 10 years natural now).
Ingredients Needed for The Olive Oil Homemade Deep Conditioner for Damaged Hair & Growth
- Sweet Almond oil
- Olive oil

Olive oil: This oil is full of vitamins, minerals and fatty acids excellent to take care of the hair and keep it always healthy and with the best possible beauty. Thanks to this composition, it has traditionally been used to combat many hair problems and among these is excessive hair loss and poor hair growth. I get my olive oil from a farmer in Turkey but you can get some good quality olive oil in organic food shops. The most expensive ones are often the best.
Tea tree oil: This oil effectively moisturizes hair so that the scalp stays free from dry and itchy scalp, the cause of dandruff. It helps combat and prevent other bacterial, viral or bacterial microbial infections in any way that your scalp remains healthy and in ideal conditions for hair growth.
Rosemary oil: One of the oils par excellence for growing hair is undoubtedly rosemary oil. What this oil does is dilate the blood vessels and stimulate cell division,which in turn stimulates the hair follicles to produce new hair.
Sweet amond oil: This oil has different nutrients that are important for the hair to grow healthy and strong, such as vitamins B1, B2, B6, E and A . When it comes to hair growth, almond oil is one of the most used treatments, because this oil stimulates growth and makes hair strands stronger, besides, it provides shine to dull hair and helps to prevent hair loss.
First: In a small bottle, mix a tablespoon of almond oil and olive oil, add 2 drops of Rosemary oil and 2 drops of tea tree essential oil. Close the bottle well so you can shake the mixture. If you have thick or long hair you have to add three times the ingredients.
Second: Wet your hair so that it can absorb the treatment effectively.
Third: In the palm of your hand add a little bit of the mixture of treatment, then rub the palms together and massage into the scalp. Apply more drops from the root to the tips, then comb out so that the oil is dispersed over the entire hair evenly.
Fourth: Put a hat on your head so that it is absorbed by the strands of hair, for a time of 20 minutes, when the time has passed take off your hat and wash with warm water and rinse..
With this natural treatment for the hair, you can stop breakage, improve the split ends and give more strength to the strands , you should only use it for 2 weeks to start seeing results and enjoy a soft and firm hair.
