Here are a couple thrift friendly homemade recipes to save money deep conditioning your hair. 


Use an avocado and one egg yolk.  Put them in the blender and mix until pasty.  Put this mixture on your hair when it is wet.  Wrap a towel around your head and let the mix soak in for half an hour.  Rinse it off, and wash your hair as usual.

Or you can use olive oil.  Warm the oil, apply it to your hair and scalp, wrap your head in saran wrap, and then rinse and wash your hair as usual.
