Natural hair conditioners – homemade recipes
Browse main article categories
I love experimenting in the kitchen with natural beauty products. Not only can you come up with some great recipes, but you can reduce food waste too!
Over ripe fruits can make the perfect base for a face pack. And by making your own beauty products, you don’t need to worry about nasty chemicals.
With summer around the corner, we all want our hair to be looking strong and healthy. Here are some of my favourite hair conditioners – all made from natural kitchen ingredients!
For dry hair, mix one egg, one tsp of honey and two tsps of olive oil together.
Apply to the ends of your damp hair, wrap in a towel and leave for half an hour before shampooing.
Another great remedy for dry hair is avocado. Mash an avocado, mix with a tsp of jojoba oil and work it through your dry hair. Shampoo out half an hour later.

Rub natural yogurt, mixed with a couple of drops of rosemary essential oil into your scalp a couple of times a week. Spend time enjoying a head massage while you work these effective ingredients in. Shampoo your hair as normal afterwards.
After shampooing, use a cider vinegar rinse. Put 1 tbsp cider vinegar into a jug and top up with 1 litre warm water. Pour through the hair after shampooing and don’t rinse.
To help balance oily hair reduce your use of harsh shampoos. Switch to a more gentle brand and avoid those which strip your hair. Try John Masters lavender and rosemary shampoo, or even a children’s shampoo such as Green people.
After shampooing and conditioning (only apply a tiny amount of conditioner to the ends of your hair if it is oily), squeeze the juice of one lemon into a litre of warm water and pour it through your hair as a rinse.
