You can make your very own organic, virgin human hair products at home for a fraction of the cost of most product lines. It’s easy to create organic shampoos, conditioners, and hair masks right in your kitchen. Completely natural, non-toxic hair products offer hydration, nutrition and stimulation to the scalp and hair.
Here are some of my favorite tips for getting and keeping the best natural-looking healthy hair. I would love to hear all of your personal tips for healthy hair.
1. Make an Herbal Hair Mask
Combine 1 teaspoon of triphala powder (an Ayurvedic herb you can purchase online), with 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel and a small amount of water until a paste is formed. Wet hair and apply paste to scalp and hair. Leave on for at least 20 minutes and rinse.
2. Use Natural Sesame Oil Conditioner
For dry hair, rub a small amount of organic sesame or olive oil on broken and split ends. Cover hair in a plastic bag or a shower cap and leave for at least 45 minutes, or up to overnight. Shampoo and rinse well.
3. Keep Hair Clean, Not “Over-Cleaned”
It’s important to have clean hair but over washing can leave hair brittle and void of natural lubricating oils. Wash hair every other day or every third day.
4.Don’t Drink Beer – Rinse With It!
Pre-shower, give your hair a rinse with 1/4 cup of flat organic, high-quality beer. Leave the beer in the hair for 15 minutes, then rinse with a natural shampoo as normal.
5. Try a Basic Baking Soda Wash
Simply giving your hair a weekly baking soda rinse will help rid the hair of the layers of chemical gels and environmental pollutants that can attach to the hair throughout the week. It also gives the hair a vibrant glossy feeling and may even lighten it. Add 1 tablespoon of baking soda to your hair while doing your normal shampooing regime.
