Feeling creative? Why not try your hand at these five natural hair products to make at home for healthy, glossy locks?
Are you a hair product junkie? Buying new haircare treats can be addicting and they often end up going unused, left in the back of your bathroom cabinet.
If you’re guilty of spending too much cash on haircare, why not consider making DIY products in the comfort of your home? Not only will you save cash, but you’ll also introduce your tresses to natural products that will do it the world of good.
Let us help you get started with homemade haircare with these top natural hair products to make at home. Look forward to shiny, glossy hair at a bargain price!
1. Coconut Hair Oil Mask
Let’s be honest – what can’t coconut oil do for your hair?
While most oils coat your hair providing minimal moisturizing and repair, coconut oil, on the other hand, penetrates the hair shaft to deeply moisturize from within. It also protects your locks from future damage from heat and outside elements.
This homemade hair oil mask will leave you with healthy, glossy hair at the fraction of a price a hair mask from the store would cost. Not only that, but this helpful recipe also explains how to remove coconut oil from your hair once it’s slathered on. After all, coconut oil can be tough to remove!
2. Super Simple DIY Dry Shampoo
Nowadays, every girl owns an aerosol can of dry shampoo for those lazy days we just can’t be bothered to give our hair a good wash. Not only is dry shampoo a time-saver and grease-reducer, but it also conserves water. Dry shampoo to the rescue!
What’s not eco-friendly, however, are the aerosol spray cans that dry shampoos are usually packaged in. Luckily, there are simple recipes to concoct a dry shampoo formula without the can, such as this easy recipe.
Try this simple formula, and you may never wish to pick up a dry shampoo aerosol can in the pharmacy again.
3. DIY Beach Waves Spray
We all adore that effortless just-left-the-beach wavy hair look but it can be so difficult to achieve without, well, setting foot on a beach!
But with the help of yet more coconut oil, you can achieve gorgeous messy waves without the ocean or the nasty chemicals commonly found in store-bought brands.
Many beach waves sprays can dry hair out, but not this simple recipe. While the salt adds texture, the coconut oil works to moisturize locks at the same time, so you don’t have to worry about frazzling your hair.
4. Natural Homemade Shampoo
Guess what the secret ingredient is from this natural homemade shampoo recipe? Yep, you’ve guessed right – it’s coconut milk!
Not only is this simple recipe great for your hair, but it will also leave your locks smelling divine with the sweet-smelling coconut milk used.
If your hair is often left tangled or oily, this homemade shampoo recipe works to combat that. It works wonderfully on kids’ hair too – though it isn’t tear-free, so watch out for those sensitive eyes!
5. DIY Homemade Conditioner
The chances are you may have already used apple cider vinegar before, on your skin perhaps or maybe you drink it with breakfast each morning.
Well, this superfood works splendidly as a homemade hair conditioner too. The recipe is ridiculously simple– simply dilute apple cider water vinegar in water and rinse hair. Voila – you’re left with silky smooth locks!
However, if you use apple cider vinegar as a hair conditioner often you should watch out for your hair becoming dry. Don’t use it every day, and instead use it sporadically.
If your hair is feeling dry – coconut oil comes to the rescue once again! Rub less than a pea-sized dollop of coconut oil into the ends of your hair to add extra moisture.
