How to Care for Your Hair Naturally

Everyone is after beautiful hair that is shiny and silky, however we often use damaging products to achieve this. The amount of chemicals used by some companies is shocking, which is why it's always a good idea to do your research before purchasing them. For those who want to stay on the safe side, we have found some homemade recipes that are 100% natural - with no side effects. This way you can ensure your hair - and hair extensions - remain purely beautiful.

Avocado Deep Hair Conditioner

Let's start with a deep hair conditioner, to add that softness and shine to your hair. It is really easy to make, with only two ingredients!

Ingredients:

  1. 1 avocado
  2. Organic coconut milk

Instructions:

  1. Peel and pit the avocado
  2. Mash the avocado while you gradually add the coconut milk
  3. Once it reaches a smooth consistency, like conditioner, work through your hair, right to the ends.
  4. Rinse after 15 minutes and shampoo, as normal.

Shampoo - wash your hair, naturally.

We will start with a basic shampoo recipe, first, however you can always add your own oils/scents. It is always a good idea to start basic. Now, I hope you have distilled water, or a dehumidifier!

Ingredients:

  1. ½ cup distilled water
  2. ¼ cup liquid Castile Soap (or you can always try lemon)
  3. ½ teaspoon jojoba, grapeseed, or other light vegetable oil

Instructions:

  1. Mix together all of the ingredients
  2. Store in a bottle
  3. Shake well before use
  4. Lather up!

Just something to note, you will need to carefully pour the amount over your head, as this recipe is not as thick as commercial shampoos.

Adding Flavour

If you have a particular purpose for your shampoo, you may like to change things up a bit and add some extras.

For instance, to put some shine into your hair, follow the same as above; just take note of the following:

  1. Use 2 tsp jojoba oil instead of ½ teaspoon
  2. Add 1/8 tsp peppermint essence oil
  3. Add 1/8 tsp tea tree essence oil

Be sure not to forget the distilled water and Castile Soap!

Instructions:

  1. Mix all ingredients, except for the distilled water
  2. Add the ¼ of distilled water
  3. Store in a bottle
  4. Lather up!
  5. You can use as you would any shampoo - rinse well!

Or another purpose could be to rejuvenate your hair - here's a recipe for that one. A little more longwinded than it's predecessors. First with the usual culprits.

Ingredients:

  1. 1/4cup distilled water
  2. 1/4cup liquid Castile Soap
  3. 1/2teaspoon jojoba, grape seed, or other light vegetable oil
  4. 3 tbsp rosemary
  5. 1 tbsp lemongrass
  6. 2 tsp tea tree oil
  7. 1/2tsp vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Boil distilled water
  2. Add rosemary and lemongrass (in a tea strainer if you have it)
  3. Leave submerged until fragrant has been released enough (takes about 20-30 minutes)
  4. Strain leaves and let cool.
  5. Combine all ingredients and add to water. Stir well.
  6. Mix the tea tree oil and vanilla into the water. Add the soap.
  7. Store in a bottle. Use as you would any shampoo. Remember to rinse well.
  8. Let the shampoo cool, and then place the top on tightly.
