  1. I’ve been making my own body/facial care products for some time now, but some of the few things I still buy are (natural, chemical free etc) shampoo and conditioner. I do make some leave in/hair growth products for my husband, and I add oils good for hair to my store-bought shampoo and conditioner. Maybe its time to try something like this…

  2. This sounds amazing!!!! Can’t wait to try this on a girls night!!! I have such thick course hair! I can’t wait!! Gonna have to sub something for carrot seed though…. hmmm

  3. I’ve been using the “no-poo” method for over 2 years now and will occasionally rub in Jojoba or Coconut oil for rehydration. This conditioning masks sounds great, and I have all of the ingredients except for the 2 non-kid safe oils! Making this for me and my daughter for a girls spa night!

  4. I am looking for an anti frizz hair treatment. This seems to have a lot of oils in it. I am thinking it might be too much for my fine hair. Has anyone with fine hair tried this recipe?

    1. Sandra, I also have very fine hair but have no problems with this recipe. I will use the mask, then shampoo and condition in the shower like usual and do not notice any residue or limpness in my hair afterward 🙂

  5. I don’t have all of the carrier oil listed only a couple, will that work? If not the I have to invest more money to buy the other carrier oil. 🙂

    1. Maria, feel free to make necessary adjustments, just make sure that if you are using less carrier oils than you will need to adjust the amount of drops used to ensure a safe dilution. If you need any help with that, just let me know what ingredients and amounts you are using and I will get back to you with some suggestions! 🙂

  6. Can’t wait to try this! I’m still building my collection and I still need two EOs to make it (rosemary and frankincense). Can I leave these two out and still get desired affect?

    1. Melanee, you can absolutely leave those two out, but I can’t promise the overall effect will be the same, as Frankincense and Rosemary are very amazing for hair care. Also, without those two oils you will get an entirely different scent. But that definitely doesn’t mean a Lavender and Carrot Seed conditioning hair mask wouldn’t be wonderful for your hair! Just a bit different than the recipe we have here 🙂

  7. What is the best way to store this? Will it harden because of the shea butter, or will it stay soft? I can’t wait to try it!

    1. Melissa, this mask should stay soft since there is a small amount of Shea Butter compared to the carrier oils used. Storing it anywhere you store your other hair products should be just fine 🙂

  8. I have been thinking I need to do something with my hair. I think I will be trying this, even though I will have to make some adjustments as I don’t have all the different carrier oils. Should make a good “girls’ night in.” 😉

  9. I have never made hair conditional musk , but this this looks great and making it soon 🙂 Thank you for sharing it !

  10. Sounds amazing! Now to get rosehip, Rosemary and carrie seed… I’m actually surprised I have all but those three things! Thank you for a great option for the dry hair!

  11. So you’d use this first? and then shampoo? Would you condition again after the shampoo with a different conditioner?

    1. Jennifer, I personally would use a hair mask first, then wash with shampoo and conditioner like usual. However, you may want to take your own hair care routine into consideration and see what works best for you 🙂

  12. This will make a wonderful gift – I am thinking of stocking stuffers for my married daughters! Thank you!!

  13. Funny to be watching this tonight as I am sitting here with simply a coconut hair mask on for the first time. However, while this hair mask looks amazing do you think we could come up with a more simplified version? It just requires so many carriers and honestly a lot of oils I do not even have… Looking for maybe another recipe even though this one looks so good.

  14. I was just thinking the other day that I was wondering if oils could be used in place of conditioner, and here is this blog post. Don’t have all of the carrier oils, so might have to tweak it a bit for the sake of our pocketbook 😉

  15. I’ve wanted a conditioning mask. And this does look great! Just too many carriers I unfortunately don’t have!
