I got really sick during my last few years of high school, which made my hair really thin. The harsh conditioners of the home personal care industry did not revitalize my hair to its original strength. I started making my own conditioner over the last year, and I can’t even begin to tell you how shiny and thick my hair feels.
Here’s a basic recipe for the conditioner I create.
- 1 cup infused water
- Dried herbs/plants for infusion. Some options include lavender, rosemary, cinnamon, black tea, green tea, lemongrass, vanilla beans, hibiscus, rose.
- 1/4 cup Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar
- Essential Oils. You can pick any smell that you’d like, but you will only be adding a few drops.
You can find the recipe for the infused water here.
Place the infused water in a mason jar, old conditioner bottle, or spray bottle.
Add 1/4 cup Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar to the cup of infused water.
Add 10 to 15 drops of your favorite essential oil, if desired.
Be careful with citrus oils, specifically lemon oil, as it may change the color of your hair over time!
Shake the final contents well until everything mixes. You will have to shake the bottle or container if you used essential oils before each use. Fats and oils cannot dissolve in water!
Your hair may need a two week adjustment period in order to notice the benefits of the new conditioner. I can assure you that you will be happy with the results.
