It will take a few ingredients you likely already have or ones you can usually find either online or at a local whole foods store. With those you can create some pretty amazing hair care products that would easily rival the ones you could find in commercial stores. You should make some room in your bathroom cabinets to make this a great hobby you could use to make your beauty products easy to have fun with:
Making a hair serum
Would you like to have a silky smooth shine and some luscious scent, filling the gaps and healing the damage around of your strands? If that is the case, then you will have a chance to make it happen fairly easily. You will be surprised to find that fractionated coconut oil will give you a chance to handle this, as it happens to be the most easily absorbable one out there for the most part.
You will need the following:
- A 4 oz glass dropper bottle or a bottle with a dispenser
- A 4 oz fractionated coconut oil bottle
- About 5 drops worth of your favorite essential oil
The process you need to follow starts with the filling of your bottle with fractionated coconut oil, leaving some room for the essential oil instead. Shake it up well and use only a few drops of it at a time as needed. You can use it for blow drying and heating protection, as well as for preventing frizzy hair without any silicone buildup. You can keep it on the shelf for years on end without having to refrigerate them at all. Be extra careful not to spill it, as you would have a bit of work with house cleaning, specifically carpet cleaning for spots made of this.
Making dry shampoo
It usually takes a long time to realize that washing hair every day can be a real problem, as it will be pretty harsh on it. Using dry shampoo for in between washes can be a great way to cut down on your styling.
Before you can call it a day however, you will need the following:
- One 4 ounce spice jar with a shaker top
- One ounce of kaolin clay
- Two ounces of arrowroot flour or unsweetened, fine cocoa powder for darker hair
- Half an ounce of baking soda
- Three drops of your favorite essential oil
The next step involves adding three drops of the essential oil of your choice to the bottom of your shaker. Pour the rest of the ingredients into a bowl and stir it up with a whisk to ensure they are thoroughly mixed. Pour it through a funnel into the shaker, shake it up and you will diffuse the scent into the powder itself. You can use this powder anytime your hair is in need of freshening up. You can use it on the roots, working it in with your fingers and then using a hair brush to revive it and clean it.
At the end of the day you should still be careful, as spilling any of this would make a real mess. Carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning would be a real bother if you mess that up, so make sure it never happens.
