There are many different types of conditioners available on the market today, ranging from the ones you use before you wash your hair, to leave-in conditioners and overnight deep conditioning treatments. But did you know that you could also make your own conditioners at home?
Not only are they super easy to make, but they are also just as effective as store-bought conditioners, with none of the harsh chemicals. Following is a list of 6 hair conditioning treatments made from natural ingredients. Take a look.
Coconut Milk And Almond Oil Conditioner
Almond oil is an emollient. It can make your hair softer and shinier. Almond oil blended with coconut milk can deep condition your hair. Apply the mixture to damp hair in sections. Leave it in for 15 minutes. Wrap a towel around your head or wear a shower cap during this time to allow for maximum penetration. Rinse the conditioner off with cool/lukewarm water.
Aloe Vera Conditioner
Aloe vera has a cooling and soothing effect when applied to hair. It penetrates your hair follicles easily and conditions dry and damaged hair. Wash your hair with shampoo and work the conditioner through your wet hair. Wait for 5 minutes and then rinse it out with cool/lukewarm water.
Egg yolk is rich in vitamins A, B, and E. These vitamins contribute to healthy, strong, and soft hair. Though there is no direct evidence, anecdotal evidence suggests that eggs make for wonderful conditioners for dry hair. Work the egg through your cleaned hair. Wait for 20 minutes and then rinse it out with cool water.
Olive Oil Conditioner
Olive oil contains squalene, which acts as a moisturizer or emollient. Hence, applying olive oil to your hair can replenish the strands with moisture, prevent breakage, and increase shine. You just need to massage it into your scalp and hair. Once all of your hair is covered in the oil, wrap it in a warm towel and wait for 30 minutes.
Rinse the oil out with shampoo.
Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioning Rinse
Apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid and alkaline nutrients. These nutrients help balance the pH of your hair. Wash your hair with shampoo. Pour the apple cider vinegar solution through your washed hair. Do not rinse your hair any further.
The natural conditioners discussed above may help condition dry hair temporarily. But if you want long-lasting results, make some dietary and lifestyle changes to restore shine, moisture, and smoothness to your hair.
