  • It's a nice thought but completely unrealistic for my lifestyle. I don't have time to cook dinner, let alone make my toiletries. I would also struggle to have to make new hair products every 3-4 days...and remember to get them out of the fridge.

    Don't get me wrong, if you have time & are more domestic than I am then this is probably great. It just makes me feel a little guilty that being a full-time working mom with no extra time doesn't allow me to even really try these. I already only get 4 hours of sleep a night so I have time to grab a workout. Plus, if I like any of these, I'm out of luck to keep doing them! Ignorance is bliss for me. :)
  • I am probably going to get some flack for this but it is better to NOT use anything on your hair. And I am talking ONLY to the males on here. Did you know that the chemicals in your shampoos and conditioners actually HURT your hair instead of help it? Why do you think many have thin, dry hair? It's the shampoos that do the drying. The scalp naturally cleans itself daily. When you first stop using shampoo, your hair creates excessive oil because it is trying to get rid of the layer of crap left by shampoos and conditioners. After about two weeks of not using hair products, your hair stops producing excessive oil and wait a daily shower, your hair finishes nice and clean WITHOUT any foul smell.
  • I would not use this recipe if you have colored , lightened or any chemical treatments on your hair ............(smoothing , perm, highlighted etc.)

  • Occasionally I use a recipe a friend gave me, though she didn't have measurements, so I just wing it. :) I whisk up some mayonaise with an egg, some olive oil and some vitamin E. She told me to also add vitamin A, but I don't have any around the house and haven't added it. I'm going to try your method Two Sparrows. It sounds interesting.
  • I have been using the recipe with yogurt, egg, grapeseed oil, about once a month for several months now. I usually leave it in for 45 minutes. It makes my hair incredibly soft. However, I strongly suggest using greek yogurt for this recipe as it is thicker, so does not drip as much when applied.
    The good of these conditioner that are making of things that you have in your home and if you "see" it.s cheaper than those that you have to buy in a store. The bad thing is the time you have to leave those conditioners in our hairs. Overall I like it because really help my hair. I have dry hair and is difficult for me to find a good conditioner cheaper. I'll try to use what this article show to me; because I prefer cheaper help to my hair than time.
  • I'm interested in making my own haircare and skincare produts thanks for the info.
  • It's not homemade but it is all natural - I've started putting henna in my hair about every two months. I read a doctoral dissertation about how henna for hair actually can have chemical additives (not regulated in the countries where it grows) but if you use henna for your skin, and prepare it like you do for hair (lemon juice, tea, and/or water) it will be pure ingredients. I have dark brown hair and it turns my hair auburn, covers the grey (which I don't mind but it's kinda cool) and leaves it super conditioned for weeks. My hair is thicker, softer, shinier, and a very awesome color - all from a dried plant. My husband compliments me almost every time he sees me in the sunshine where the red really shows.
  • These would be good if the person using them needs extra protein in their hair - but for those with already balanced hair, or dry hair (needing moisture, not protein), these protein-rich treatments may leave hair dry, brittle, and prone to breaking.
  • My mom swore by a cider vinegar rinse for hair - and it does make a difference. I think it's the pH that does it - so the lemon juice in the first recipe should work too.
  • These recipes look healthy, evironmentally safe and logical. I just wish that I could make a batch that would last a month and not require refrigeration...we live in such a busy world, don't we?

    I appreciate all the posts on this topic and will try some of the suggestions that are a little more easier. When I take a vacation and have the spare time I am going to try the recipe for the deep conditioner. I am a long haired blond with non-bleach highlights and my hair can get pretty dry at times.

    Thank everybody for the suggestions.
  • These are good tips. I have been natural for almost 2 years. Avocado can be used as a conditioner too just blend it. My hair does not Protein only products. I had a jerri curl for twenty years. Yep you heard right. Now I am loving my natural hair. I am learning how to care if every day.

  • If I really had hair...
  • What I've found works well here in Saskatchewan where the temperature reaches -40 degrees (where Celcius and Farenheit agree it's doggoned cold!) or colder in the winter is good old olive oil. Rub it into your scalp and comb it into your hair from root to tip. Cover your head with a plastic shopping bag and then a towel, and leave it there for an hour. Rub your shampoo into your hair BEFORE you get it wet and you would not believe how beautiful your hair will be. No smell, not gooey residue, just shine and softness.

    My daughter uses a hi-temp hair straightener and is always colouring her hair. She's got very badly damaged hair and thought I was crazy until I hit her on a right day and helped her with a treatment. She was absolutely amazed at the difference and asked me to do it again right away. Once a week should do it for badly damaged hair, twice a month for moderate damage, and once a month for everyone else.

    Just a suggestion.
