Love Your Locks: 3 Homemade Conditioners
Your family has made the decision to live a Green Lifestyle. You buy local organic food, you wear organic clothing, you even make your own cleaning supplies! But why stop there? Making your own conditioner is one of the easiest ways to tie your Green Lifestyle into your beauty routine. In this post, we’ll share three different conditioners, their benefits and how you can make them.
Oily Hair– Coconut Conditioner
Coconut oil conditioner is specifically designed for oily hair- it removes any excess oils while leaving your hair extremely soft, light and smelling amazing!
What You’ll Need:
- 1 C water
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
Place the egg yolk into a bowl and whisk until it is frothy. Add the coconut oil and continue to whisk a bit more. Pour the water into the bowl and stir until the mixture becomes smooth.
Apply the mix to your scalp and hair, massaging for 1 minute and let it set for 2-5 minutes.
Rinse your hair thoroughly with cool water.
Style as usual.
Dry Hair– Avocado Conditioner
Avocados are extremely rich in good fats, proteins, and vitamins and has a number of other amazing benefits. This conditioner will penetrate the cuticle layer of your hair and deposit the nutrients deep into your hair.
Place the peeled and pitted avocado and water into a bowl. Use the fork to mash the avocado and mix it with the water. Add the olive oil and heavy cream and mix well.
Apply the mix to your hair, concentrating on the driest areas of your hair. Using a large comb, make sure the hair is completely saturated with the mixture and massage into scalp.
Cover with a shower cap and leave sit for 20-30 minutes.
Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
Shampoo and style as usual.
Normal Hair– Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner
Apple cider vinegar will help balance the pH level of your hair leaving it soft and shiny. It will detangle the hair as well as seal the cuticle which will result in a smooth, frizz-free finish.
Combine all the ingredients in the applicator bottle and shake well.
Apply the solution to your hair and massage it in.
Style as usual.
Keep in mind that these conditioners are not meant to take the place of your styling products. You will still need to use products to achieve your desired finished look.
