What can I make using the following ingredients?

I'm new to the homemade dc and hot oil treatments. So far I've been experimenting, but I figured it'd be best to come here for some advice.

I have: evoo, coconut oil, safflower oil, argan oil, jojoba oil, mayo, eggs, milk, and honey.

What else can/should I invest in?

Also, I've heard of saturating my hair with oil. What's the purpose in this and how would I go about doing that?

P.S. My curl type is 3c

    *** Okay so you have a lot of good treatments here. I've been doing a lot of research and what you should do is have a set schedule. 3-4 TIMES a week you should do something different. With oils you should do those overnight and then shower the next morning to rinse it out and if not use for 30 min before going into the shower. Avocado and banana mushed together is another nice hair mask that you can use for 30 minutes to an hour then wash out. For shine you can use, 3 eggs, 2 tablespoons olive oil or safflower oil, and 1 teaspoon vinegar. Leave it on for 30 min
    Each one has it's own purpose for shine, moisture, and overall keeping your hair healthy.

    Now since you have honey, you can use those for fun face masks. Honey and sugar mixed together is a nice exfoliating mask to use, and you can look thru google for

    You can use the oils for....
    -a pre-poo treatment
    -a sealant over a leave-in conditioner
    -add-in for co-washes or deep treatments

    You can use the honey for...
    -a pre-poo treatment when mixed with oils
    -add-in for co-washes, deep treatments and/or leave in conditioners
    -add-in for acv rinses (/home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.maneandchic.com%2F2010%2F05%2Foh-honey-honey-rose-apple-cider-vinegar.html" class="Popup)
    -honey rinses (/home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ehow.com%2Fabout_4587717_using-honey-hair.html" class="Popup)

    You can use the mayo and eggs for a homemade conditiong/protein treatment. Don't rinse with hot water--It'll "cook" the egg while it's in your hair.

    Saturating your hair in oil before washing is a pre-poo treatment. Here's more info: (How to Do A Pre-Shampoo Treatment | eHow.com)

    I have been mixing stuff in my head for a couple of days now.

    for a moisturizer: coconut water or milk, aloe vera juice, honey, and some oils

    for a DC/hair mask: avocado, blended coconut meat, banana, shea butter (maybe whipped), honey, oils, pureed carrots.

    I don't know anybody else with any ideas.

    My favorite DT:
    equal parts EVOO and Coconut oil (I'm guessing here, but maybe a 1/4 cup total), and about a Tbsp. (? I just squeeze some in, I am one of those forget the measuring utensils and eye it cooks) of honey. This works better than any store bought DT I have tried. :)

    Easy PT: egg whites!
