3 Simple Steps to Make the Best Homemade Hair Conditioner
Great-looking hair can really give a boost to your overall appearance. Unfortunately, the quest for beautiful hair can lead many people to spend far too much money, and expensive treatments can sometimes give disappointing results.
To help you avoid this trap, we have collected some formulas and recipes to make your own conditioners at home. These all-natural ingredients are good both for you and for the planet. You can have great-looking hair without spending more than you can afford, too.
1. Yogurt, Mayonnaise and Egg White Conditioner
This might sound like an unusual combination, but it’s a highly effective conditioner that will give good results the very first time you use it. And you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen right now!
½ cup plain (unflavored) yogurt
½ cup mayonnaise
1 egg white
Using a whisk or egg beater, whip the three ingredients together in a bowl until completely combined.
Apply the mixture to your hair, work it through from the roots to the tips, focusing a little more on the tips (where your hair is usually driest and most damaged).
Cover your hair with a plastic shower cap; then wait for at least half an hour. This conditioner may drip, so be sure to protect your clothes with a towel.
Once the mixture has been in your hair for half an hour, rinse it out thoroughly using lukewarm water.
2. Avocado Deep Conditioning Treatment
Here is another easy recipe, this time using only 2 ingredients.
Separate one egg to get one egg white. Beat until frothy. Add yogurt and mix thoroughly.
Massage mixture into scalp and hair. Wait 15 minutes to half an hour.
Rinse completely and follow up by shampooing your hair to get the best results.
This one works well on oily hair.
1 tsp pureed avocado
1 tsp pure olive oil
5 to 6 drops rosemary or lavender essential oil
Mix this together and apply evenly to your hair. After 10 minutes, rinse thoroughly.
5 Tbsp olive oil
3 Tbsp local or organic honey
3 Tbsp milk
Mash together all of these ingredients in a bowl until they form a smooth, even paste.
Apply mixture to your hair. Let it sit for 15 minutes to half an hour.
Wash the mixture out of your hair. This treatment s ideal for damaged or dry hair.
1 Tbsp natural apple cider vinegar
1 cup water
Mix these two ingredients together in a spray or squirt bottle.
Spray onto hair after shampooing, massaging it into the scalp too. Wait for approximately 2 minutes.
These DIY recipes are both easy and effective, and they won’t cost you a lot of money. Whether your hair is oily, dry or normal, you can benefit from these treatments. To get the best results, use a clarifying or volumizing shampoo.
