Introducing the tartelette 2 in bloom palette – featuring 12 brand new, never-before-seen shades.

Hey all! I just wanted to share some news..I know many of you are avid users of natural ingridents for hair care. I enjoy mixing and making my own creations and love learning about new ways to make stuff.

In this edition, I want to highlight avocados and bananas. Both are excellent sources of moisture and small bits of protein.

The Avocado:


Avocados grow year round in tropical countries, they are excellent for eating as they provide the body with nutrients of vitamin A, E, and many more. However the avocado makes for an exceptional hair conditioner.

A great recipe to incorporate it (specifically for dry thirsty hair) is to blend:
1 avocado
1/2 can of coconut milk
1 oz coconut oil
2 teaspoon olive oil
2 teaspoon honey
2 oz aloe vera gel
1 teaspoon castor oil

S'well Bottles - 160x600

Blend it in a blender or a food processor till smooth and creamy in consistency. It can be used for a 30 min conditioner, but for hair that needs that extra boost, leave any where from 1 hour to even overnight. Rinse out using lukewarm water, then a final rinse of cold water.
(I plan on using this over the summer, so stay tuned for the updates)

The Banana:

Well bananas as we all know are really good for their protein, but again just the avocado, you can blend it with other goodies for a really nice moisturizing blend.

There are many recipes out for the banana, including adding it to the above avocado recipe. So check it out!

Well, I will return with many more recipes once I get the chance to post them all.

  1. I’m glad someone post something like this on how to take care of natural hair. I’ve been natural for 2 years and don’t know how to take care of it. So either I’ve been straighten it or wearing a piece/wig just b/c I don’t know what to do w/ my hair. Hopefully there will be alot of diff. infor. posted on taking care of natural hair, including diff. styles. Thanks again.

  8. This stuff is awesome! I use it on my little girls(2 & 4), and their hair feels fantastic every time. I love it even more because, we get to make it together. Every 2 weeks we get to have an all natural spa day, we make oatmeal,sugar and vanilla body scrubs and this conditioner, a whole body experience for them. They love it.
    THANX.

  10. This conditioner recipe is superb!!! It brought a great level of moisture to my hair, and it feels oh-so-good!! I used a shea butter concoction to set my twist out, and my hair looks and feels so healthy!! I will experiment with the banana once this batch is done….

    Thanks for this recipe…I will try more of your suggestions!

  12. Those recipes sounds good too. I have a bad habit when it comes to pear (avocado), I sprinkle some salt on it & have it alongside my stew chicken with rice n peas lol. I'll buy 2 pears & definitely try the recipe.

  13. Wait! Wait! Well I know now you're from the Caribbean but which island…are u a fellow Jamaican?? And girl..I know all about eating the pear with everything…bread, rice, bulla, in my main meal..you name it..I love pears!!! lol :)

  14. You're Jamaican?! So am I… still living in JA too. Here's the thing though, I don't think any of my pears are making it up to my hair… they'll have to work from the inside out. Unless, of course, 'avocado' appears in some novel product in an aisle at the beauty supply store.

    No can do. ;)

  15. Hey there. I actually haven’t had any problems with little remnants, mainly because when I blend it I make sure it is smooth and no chunky bits are present. I whip/blend it to a creamy-liquid consistency and that helps ensure it’s easy to remove.

  16. I used this recipe last evening…and my hair feels wonderful. I didn’t have castor oil nor did i have coconut oil…so i used canola oil and mango oil instead…I added 2 bananas, used an avocado and also used about 3 tbsps of my egg protein conditioner. Amazing results. This is my new protein bi-weekly regiment. Thanks heaps. :)

  17. I really did love this recipe! I just used this earlier today and my hair felt really soft and I saw a lot of curls in my head. Thanks so much! Question, if I have left overs, is it better for me to throw it away or store it in the fridge?
