When was the last time you said “thank you” to your hair? No, seriously, your locks put up with a lot. Oh, let me count the
ways abuses… there’s the wind, sun, blow drying, flattening, curing, twisting, tugging, and smothering with chemicals and unnatural ingredients. And that’s just off the top of my head! Your hair is definitely deserving of some TLC so treat it to some spa like treatments without the spa price tag. One homemade products I love to use to revitalize my hair is this homemade leave-in hair conditioner.
This homemade leave-in hair conditioner is great for moisturizing, detangling, and simply refreshing hair between shampoos. This homemade leave-in hair conditioner is a must if you use dry shampoo (ex. after a workout) as dry shampoo can leave your hair feeling dry and stiff.
Making this homemade leave-in hair conditioner is a breeze. You simply add all the ingredients to a spray bottle and give the bottle a shake. Whipping up a bottle of this homemade leave-in hair conditioner takes less time than making a pot of coffee.
While I love that it’s quick and easy, my favorite thing about this homemade leave-in hair conditioner recipe is the ingredients (or lack thereof). There are no bizarre, unpronounceable chemicals. In fact, this homemade leave-in hair conditioner is full of good for your hair ingredients including coconut oil, orange essential oil, and ginger essential oil.
I’ve touted the benefits of coconut oil for hair for years now but just to reiterate, coconut oil is great for your scalp and your hair because it is a natural moisturizer that does a great job penetrating skin (and hair follicles) due to its low molecular weight and because of how it bonds with proteins (draxe.com). The proteins and nutrients (ex. vitamin E) in coconut oil can also stimulate hair growth, helping repair damaged hair.
As mentioned above, this homemade leave-in hair conditioner also contains orange essential oil and ginger essential oil.
Orange essential oil is has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties meaning it’ll help sooth an irritated scalp. In addition, orange essential oil is a moisturizer that’s light weight so it won’t leave your hair feeling limp and over-saturated (a.k.a. greasy).
Ginger essential oil is “amazing at increasing scalp circulation and stimulating hair growth; since it contains zinc it’s also able to add some serious moisture to otherwise dry tresses,” (Bustle).
This homemade leave-in hair conditioner is a great way to keep your hair not only looking great but also feeling great.
You’re hair puts up with a lot of nonsense in an effort make you look fabulous. So, when possible, say “thank you” by skipping store-bought chemical filled products and using DIY hair goodies.
