Before we step into the DIY Hair Conditioner recipe, know what your conditioner does to your hair. The primary purpose of hair conditioner is to close the cuticles in the hair strands. These cuticles, usually gets untamed after shampooing and causes frizz. When you condition your hair, these cuticles stick close to the hair strands and make it look smooth and supple. Moreover, conditioned hair is easier to manage as well.
