Okay, here are some homemade conditioner recipes that I have rounded up to go with last week’s shampoo recipes. As with those, I have not tried any of these yet (I think I’ll wait until I run out of the store bought stuff first), so I don’t know personally how well they work. As soon as I try them I will add my comments.
- 1 1/2 c. water
- 1/4 c. vinegar (white or apple cider)
- 1 peppermint tea bag or 5 drops essential oil (optional)
Mix the water and vinegar in a jar, then add the tea bag or essential oil. After shampooing, just pour this rinse into your hair and wash thoroughly.
No need to store this in the refrigerator.
- 1 tsp. baby oil OR 1 tsp. olive oil
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 cup water
Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and beat until frothy. After shampooing, massage the mixture into hair. Rinse thoroughly.
Store any leftover conditioner in the refrigerator for up to one week.
- Jojoba oil.
Combine equal parts honey and jojoba oil. After shampooing massage into hair. Let sit for a few minutes, then rinse thoroughly.
Hot Oil Treatment:
- 1/8 c. olive oil
- 1 vit. E capsule
Heat olive oil until warm. Puncture vitamin E capsule and mix liquid with olive oil. Apply to hair, really working into the ends. Wrap hair with saran wrap and towel. Leave in for 20 minutes, then only wash (no condition) hair as usual.
Thanks Kat, for this recipe!
