Commercial hair care products contain a high amount of often caustic ingredients. Many of common ingredients found in commercial products actually cause problems like dandruff, seborrhea, psoriasis, eczema, and acne. The central cause of hair loss and baldness in our modern age are the chemical ingredients found in 99% of commercial-made shampoo, conditioner, hair gels, hair creams, and other beauty products. Skip the enormous expense and serious health issues associated with them by using these inexpensive homemade recipes from five basic ingredients already found in most kitchens.
Easier, Cheaper Methods of Hair Care
A total of five simple and common kitchen ingredients are needed for the following recipes: baking soda, castile soap (Dr. Bonners makes a decent oil-based organic castile soap), apple cider vinegar, water, Epsom or sea salt, and essential oils.
Shampoo – Simply mix 1 teaspoon baking soda and 4 tablespoons hemp castile soap into two cups water and use it as a hair wash in a foaming pump bottle. Massage gently into hair and scalp. Rinse thoroughly. Check out this more involved shampoo recipe, as well.
Conditioner – Follow the shampoo with and apple cider vinegar rinse, the raw kind works better. Add essential oils directly to the apple cider vinegar for scent and healthy hair and scalp benefits. Rinse well.
Hair Spray – For a scrunch spray or morning refresh spray, simply add a drop or two of essential oils along with 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar and one teaspoon sea salt and one teaspoon Epsom salt to two cups water and shake until dissolved fully. Put it into a misting bottle and apply as like commercial hair-spray to style hair. Fluff hair out when dry, if desired. Hair should hold all day.
These three recipes combined cost about 50 cents per month to make and can last a family of four nearly two weeks of daily showers. It takes a week or two before hair and scalp adjust to chemical-free care. During the first week or two after switching to homemade hair products, hair might be limp, more oily than usual, or feel stiff or dry. Patiently endure the changes the hair and scalp are is going through. After a week or two of daily or every-other-day use, hair will be healthier than commercial shampoos can provide. Expect a resurgence of hair growth approximately six months after going 100% commercial product free.
