Yogurt for Stronger, Moisturized Natural Hair!

Yogurt for Stronger, Moisturized Natural Hair!Via Naturallycurly.com

Dry hair can look frizzy and dull and be prone to breakage. Make your own yogurt hair mask by whisking one egg until frothy. Then blend in ½ cup of plain yogurt and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Apply to damp hair in sections. Leave on for at least 15 minutes then shampoo and condition as usual. The lactic acid in yogurt will smooth and hydrate your strands.

Do you use yogurt for hair treatments? What’s in your mix?

    This is a great post.I think it will be very usefull to us. I read it but I need some thing more to know about this. How can I know about this.

    My yogurt treatment is greek plain full fat yogurt, egg white, one cap of jojoba, one cap of organic castor oil, and millcreek botanicals keratin conditioner. I leave it on for a few hours. My hair loves it so much! Very little to no hair fall during shower and detangling. Loves my yogurt!

    I agree with what Valarie said because I learned years ago that I'm very protein sensitive and a little goes a long way and eggs cause major breakage in my hair. I'm going to try a yogurt treatment but leave out the egg and just add my oil to mix instead. My hair gets strength from The yellow label Shea Moisture mask and I occasionally se QP Soy Oyl protein.

    I just put some plain Greek yogurt (full fat) in my hair, let sit for about an hour, then rinsed. I haven't had a chance to wash with shampoo yet, though, and it's not totally dry yet. Plus I also put coconut oil in my hair and of course that won't come out with just water (oil, hello). I'll let you know how it looks after I shampoo, condition, and dry.

    I just made a yogurt deep condish. I used plain yogurt, milk, cayanne pepper, coconut oil, grapseed oil along with castor oil. It's in my hair now and the cayanne pepper gives it this warming sensation. It feels so relaxing!

    does it have to be plain yogurt?

    Great Post! I've always seen articles about using yogurt but never really cared to look but IDK man- I saw this & was like =D . I will definitely do it soon!

  • Quela09 says:

    Yogurt, coconut cream, coconut oil, evoo, and honey. I love it and when I dont need the extra protein I just leave out the coconut… and add argon and grapeseed instead.

    super great tip!! thanks for sharing and posting!

  • Shuwanna says:

    I have a question for anyone knowlegable in this area to answer….I've tried the avocado DC and I've also tried the pre-poo with EVOO and my hair gets extremely curly from both. Which also makes it harder to detangle. Does this mean my hair is protein sensitive?

    excellent tip, trying this tonight!

  • Niah says:

    I've done a deep condition with Avocado, banana, honey, EVOO and coconut cream and my hair was amazing afterwards. This time i will definitely try it with the yogurt and see if it can top the original mix. thanks for the tip.

    I just made a deep conditioning treatment this weekend that included an avocado, honey, plain whole-fat yogurt, an egg, and olive oil. I consider this to be a protein treatment as well and I leave it on my hair for 30-45 minutes under a conditioning cap. My hair felt stronger and more conditioned. It was also much shiner after I co-washed and styled.

  • MoiVal88 says:

    For some reason my hair does not like food. I guess i'm super overly sensative to protein. I almost passed out when i felt how my hair felt after using… avocadoes, yogurt, eggs, coconut cream… Things of that nature. Are there any conditioning treatments for protein sensative ladies?

  • MzNappyTrini says:

    I love my yogurt/coconut prepoo treatments! If I weren't so lazy I would do them all the time. for the person who asked about straightening above, I had that concern at the beginning as well but I have not experienced any change in my curl pattern. it just makes my hair way easier to handle and less tangle prone. I think I may do one this weekend. Check how I make mine and pics of the application process here http://mznappytrini.blogspot.com/2011/02/coconut-prepoo.html

    Yoghurt treatment is surely great. I have been using it for almost a year and it hydrates my thirsty hair weekly. I add various elements depending on my hair requirements like neutral henna to strengthen it or honey and mint EO to soothe itchy scalp. The hair is softer and easier to detangle because more moisturized but I did not notice what you could call a straigthening effect.

    I'll have to try that. I make my own yoghurt a few times a week using a kit so it would be great to throw together a conditioner from the kitchen!

  • HerRoyalKinkiness says:

    So i read this article this afternoon and decided to try it. Mom always keeps plain all natural yogurt in the house for her smoothies so i used that.
    In my DC mixing bowl i put Gleau Argan Oil blend (<– straight from heaven.. love that stuff), Honey, Aussie Moist, Mayonnaise, EVOO, and last but not least the yogurt. I have been making this mixture without the yogurt for some time now and my hair has never looked better. I will say i loved the consistency of my mix after i added the yogurt. THICK AND CREAMY aint even the half and it smelled delish! Anyway i rinsed it out after an hour only to find residue still there. rinsed again. better but not all gone still. I decided to leave well enough alone and to just style as usual. its sooooooo soft!!! it did take hella long to dry but ill get over that!

    Forever Kinky,
    Me

    I've started using a yogurt, coconut cream and olive oil deep conditioning treatment. I noticed that my hair was softer and my curls more defined after the first use. I decided to do a second one this week and my curls are even more defined. I'm thinking this may become a weekly treatment : )

    No I don't use yogurt for hair treatments. It seems like cutting the sulfate from my cleanser pretty much has taken care of dryness and frizziness!

  • C. says:

    So this treatment is a deep conditioning treatment that adds moisture and strength? To see benefits does this have to be done on a regular basis [multiple applications] or can I see results after the first one. My hair really needs a lil something something right now…

  • Unknown says:

    I use yogurt in the Cherry Lola treatment, and it always does wonderful things for my hair. Lately I've really been big on mayonnaise for my hair. It does wonderful things for me in terms of strengthening, shine, and it's great for detangling. I mix mayo, honey, and cheapie conditioner.

  • Candace4life says:

    Does this cause the hair to straighten some?, I could have sworn that I saw this mention on another site someone. I could be wrong, but I've never used this before and wondered if it works w/o doing permanent damage to my hair.

  • Nappy Miss Sew 'N Sew says:

    I use straight whole milk plain yogurt once a week on damp hair for 30 minutes, no heat. After 30 minutes, I condition like usual and air dry. My hair loves it. It softens, smooths and gives my hair a little more weight so it shows more length.

  • adjoua says:

    For my yogurt treatments I use olive oil, honey, egg, avocado oil, and low fat vanilla yogurt. Then I put all that stuff on my hair and throw on a plastic cap that I cover with a cholesterol evolve cap for conditioning and then cover with a microfiber towel turban wrap ( you can grab one of those at dollar tree) and go about my business for 1-2 hours then wash and deep condition. My hair loves this treatment!!
