Date Night Desperate Measures: Making Hair Conditioner from the Spice Rack

So, your hair is a bit dry today and your out of conditioner. If you have this one thing in your spice rack, you’re set.

Sesame Seed Hair Conditioner

For one sad, dry, limp unloved head of hair:

1 hand full of sesame seeds, maybe 2 Tablespoons max.


Grind the seeds however you can. Blender, coffee grinder, hammer and baggie, whatever. Grind ’em up.

Simmer in a little water for about 10 minutes.

Strain the water from the seeds and allow to cool.

After shampooing, apply the sesame seed mess to your hair. Massage in.

Rinse. Rinse. Rinse.

Okay, so you might want to take a comb into the shower with you.

Just look at how you have boosted the shine, suppleness and softness.

Wow! you look hot. Go get, ’em!
