Homemade Shampoo

First things first, let’s start with clean locks. It may be a hair crime to shampoo every day, though you also don’t want to go to the other extreme! A clean scalp is essential for hair growth and helps to prevent other issues, such as dandruff.  

Your hair appearance also has a lot to do with what type of shampoo you use. Unfortunately, most store-bought shampoos are filled with chemical and synthetic cleansers that strip hair of its natural oils and can be harmful to your health. The perfect way to get around this is by making your own shampoo with natural ingredients.

There are many advantages to making your own shampoo: avoid unnatural ingredients, spend less, and personalize it to your specific hair needs. Do it yourself (DIY) shampoos are not standardized and aren’t limited to the one-size-fits-all products that are found in stores. On the contrary, DIY shampoos are designed by you, for you. We even have homemade shampoo recipes specifically for hair loss, damaged hair, and dandruff.

Homemade Deep Conditioner

Next up is conditioning. Is your hair naturally prone to dryness or frizz? No one wants lifeless strands or a halo of fuzz around their heads. Conditioning every time you wash your hair is important for keeping your tresses smooth and moisturized, but don’t forget to deep condition at least a couple times a month for optimum silkiness.

Conditioning is important to keep both natural and synthetic hair systems healthy, especially if your hair is curly or color-treated. Homemade hair conditioner treatments give your locks the moisture and nutrients they need to shine.

One of the best parts of natural hair care is knowing exactly where every ingredient comes from. Just as it’s important to pay attention to the ingredients we’re putting in our bodies, it’s also important to keep in mind what we put on our bodies.

Take a look at our DIY hair conditioner recipes for conditioning masks, a shea butter leave-in conditioner, and even a conditioning rinse for the adventuresome featuring an unexpected ingredient!


Homemade Hair Gel

Once your hair is clean and moisturized, it’s time to style! It’s not as simple as grabbing any product off your closest store’s shelves! Using the wrong product can damage a hairpiece and reduce its lifespan. That is why it's essential to know exactly what products to use with hairpieces. Out of the hundreds of products sold in stores, which one is ideal for you? Do they have the right ingredients to make your hair soft, shiny and voluminous? Will the chemicals weaken the knots in your hair system? 

Rather than choosing between disappointing store-bought options, you can make your own hair gel instead! Just like DIY shampoo and conditioner, homemade hair gel will help you get more bang for your buck and allow you to adjust the product to your specific needs. 

Whether you’re looking to add shine, softness or increase volume, the choice is yours! Add whichever ingredient will satisfy your hair goals and start looking stylish! We have a homemade hair gel recipe that you can start with that can be customized to fit your specific needs.

DIY Styling Cream

If your tresses prefer styling cream over hair gel, we’ve got you covered! Store-bought styling products can tend to make hair look dull if they’re not regularly washed or not washed thoroughly enough. For hair system wearers, it’s best not to wash your system daily. For this reason, it can be difficult to remove styling products from your hair system. This is where natural styling creams come in - made in your own home with natural ingredients. 

Natural styling creams are great because they can add shine, eliminate frizz, smooth curls, and even replace moisture lost from heat styling. Creating your own styling cream allows you to customize your product to satisfy your needs.

You can choose ingredients with nourishing and moisturizing properties and select essential oils that are good for your hair and scalp. Check out our DIY nourishing styling cream that is packed with natural oils and vitamins to give your hair what it needs while keeping you looking good.
