Besides keeping your hair clean it’s also important to add back vitamins and minerals that are lost when you shampoo your locks. Experts recommend that people use condition after using shampoo, and others recommend alternating the days you add shampoo and condition to your locks. However, you don’t have to spend big bucks on a condition. The good news is that you can also make homemade conditioners. This can help you to save money and also avoid the harsh chemicals in products sold in stores.
Sweet, Sour, and Water
This recipe includes apple cider vinegar (ACV) and water, but is quite effective in functioning as a condition. You can buy large containers of ACV in order to reduce the cost of the condition. You’ll need the following ingredients:
- 1 tablespoon ACV
- 1 cup water
This is a very basic yet effective condition that can produce great results for your hair. It’s advisable that you mix up the blend in a clean squirt bottle. This recipe makes 8 ounces. You can always double, triple, etc. the recipe in order to make larger batches. For example, if you use a larger container than a squirt bottle you could double, triple, etc. both ingredients until you fill the container.
Honey and Oil
This is another conditioner that includes honey, but includes olive oil as the other ingredient. The ingredients you’ll require are:
- ½ cup honey
- 4 tablespoons olive oil (light)
Mix the honey and olive oil into a small bowl. Keep doing that until it’s mixed well. Then use a funnel to pour the blend into one plastic bottle that contains a squeeze-top lid. When you’re ready to use the condition, shake the blend gently and then massage it until your locks until it’s covered evenly.
Next, use a shower cap to cover your head. Let the conditioner remain on your hair’s strands for 30-60 minutes. Then shampoo and rinse your hair completely. This will help your hair to be healthy and beautiful by adding important vitamins and nutrients back to your hair strands.
Three White Ingredients
This conditioner requires 3 white ingredients: mayo, yogurt, and egg whites. It might sound nasty, but it is quite effective and helps hair to look more beautiful. If you want the mixture to smell better you can use vanilla instead of yogurt to make the smell better. It’s also important to use warm water instead of hot water to rinse out the conditioner.
Here are the ingredients:
- ½ cup of plain yogurt
- ½ cup mayo
- Egg whites – 1 egg
First, whip all the ingredients in one bowl. That’s all you have to do in terms of preparation. Then lather then conditioner into your hair. Focus on the ends of the air where the most damage is likely to be. Also, make sure that all of the hairs’ strands are totally coated.
Next, put on a shower cap, then wait for the condition to work, which is about half an hour. As a warning, this homemade condition will drip, which can be messy. You could put cotton balls around the shower ca’s edges. Make sure to rinse well using slightly warm water. You can then shampoo your hair at that time, or wait and keep enjoying the results of the homemade conditioner.
These are just some of the homemade conditions that can work just as well as the store-bought products. Besides that they can help to save a lot of money, which is a bonus. In addition, the DIY conditions re also easy to make so you won’t have to worry about spending a lot of time and effort making the conditions for your locks.
