DIY Molasses Hair Conditioner Works Miracles

DIY Molasses Deep Hair Conditioner Strong Braided Hair
My DIY Molasses Deep Hair Conditioner is what every head could benefit from for healthier, stronger hair.


My hair wasn’t up to par, suffering from dryness and breakage. Therefore, I knew it was time to pull out all the stops with this DIY Molasses Deep Hair Conditioner mask that I reserve for when it is at its worst. Whether your hair is straight, wavy, curly, thick or thin, this homemade hair mask that I have for you is what you need to help boost its beauty.

This recipe has just four ingredients of blackstrap molasses, ripe avocado, plain yogurt, and fresh lemon juice to create this DIY Molasses Deep Hair Conditioner. This foursome doesn’t sound like anything special, but put them together and they seem to accomplish miracles with how they can restore moisture, shine, strength, and volume to damaged, weakened hair. Even more amazing is if you have a few gray hairs, the blackstrap molasses also manages to temporarily darken them.

Blackstrap molasses is the fortifying backbone of the DIY Molasses Deep Hair Conditioner due to its extraordinary lineup of minerals. With all its vitamin B6 and minerals such as manganese, magnesium, potassium, iron and selenium, blackstrap molasses helps strengthen and condition the strands.

When you further add ripe avocado with all its beneficial proteins, amino acids and vitamins like B and E for hair health to this DIY Molasses Deep Hair Conditioner, the conditioning power of this mask is carried to a new high. The reason avocado is so vital to charging up this recipe is because its ingredients can penetrate to the cellular level of the scalp to strengthen fragile hair and encourage new growth.

Plain yogurt supplies an additional nourishing element of this DIY hair conditioning recipe with all its lactic acid, amino acids, proteins, and fats for smoothness and moisturization.

The last ingredient I use in my DIY Molasses Deep Hair Conditioner is fresh lemon juice for its ability to strengthen hair follicles as well as its acidity for clearing the scalp of dead cells and clogging hair styling product deposits.  Left alone, they dull the hair and set the course for slow hair growth.

If you’ve been unhappy with the condition of your hair, I really urge you to give my DIY Molasses Deep Hair Conditioner recipe a try.  I promise that you’ll love what you see once you do.

DIY Molasses Deep Hair Conditioner


2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and mashed
2 tablespoons of blackstrap molasses
2 tablespoons of plain yogurt


Mash the avocado as smooth as you can in a bowl. It doesn’t have to be perfectly smooth and can be slightly lumpy.

Next, squeeze out two tablespoons of the lemon juice, plain yogurt and finally the molasses and combine well.

Scoop the mixture and apply to your dry hair from the top of your head, rubbing thoroughly to disperse from the scalp down the hair to the ends.

Your hair will be goopy with this mixture on your head so cover with a shower cap or plastic wrap first before fashioning a turban out of a towel.

Keep this mask on for at least 25-minutes to give the ingredients maximum time to do their repair work before rinsing out.

You will want to shampoo afterwards to get everything out.

Dry and style as usual. When you finish, you will be delighted at how much healthier your hair will look.

    Interesting combo of ingredients! One would think molasses would be tricky to wash out. I have thick, curly black hair and massage it with coconut oil once a week(followed by shampoo) and also do an apple cider vinegar/water rinse once a week. I only shampoo twice a week and use conditioner every day.

    My hair has gotten MUCH better/healthier. In the past, it had a lot of sticky build-up. Baking soda mixed with shampoo works well for that. Even now, my hair gets dry/frizzy at times. I have found that eating right, regular trims, and minimal heat-styling/product use help.

      I was surprised at how well molasses helped hair.

      I also do the baking soda to remove all the old styling goop from hair. In fact, I wrote about it in an easier post. This really helps especially before coloring the hair. Let me know once you try this molasses hair recipe what you think.

    I really havent heard of using molasses before, although it does make sense especially blackstrap since it is less processed. I have dry hair, and the avocado works ell for me as some oils.
    I have light hair, soam a bit hesitant at molasses only because my hair gets ‘dull’ in the winter. I do not color, I just lose the sunbleached look and look ‘mousy’ a I am blonde.

    I wonder how well it works for light hair?

    It is funny that all of these items are my favorites to eat……….. nothing like molasses on a hot buttered biscuit. My hair needs a lot of help so I will be trying this mixture out 🙂

    Could I use coconut milk instead of yougurt

      I honestly can’t say how coconut milk would work because I only used the yogurt. It’s thicker and has more of the proteins, fats and lactic acid that damaged hair needs.
