There are many recipes for natural hair conditioners but no conditioner alone will make your hair the picture of health. One of the easiest ways to take better care of your hair is to brush it with a natural bristle brush. Brushing your hair helps spread the natural oil so it does not build up, it helps keep your scalp healthy and helps to removing loose hair. It also helps to stimulate the capillaries, increases blood circulation and the transport of oxygen and nutrients to the hair stem, root and bulb. Healthy hair is beautiful hair.
When it comes to natural hair conditioners there are an array of products you can use. Olive oil can be used as a hot oil treatment. Simply heat it up so it is warm, just as you would a store bought hot oil treatment and pour or brush it on your hair. Wrap your head in a towel soaked in the hottest water you can stand and wrung out. Put a plastic bag over the towel to keep the heat in. Leave this on for five minutes, then rinse your hair. You may find the olive oil is hard to wash out.
Mayonnaise and yogurt can also be used as a natural hair conditioner. Put it on your wet hair before you shampoo, wrap a towel soaked in hot water, then wrung out around your head. Cover the towel with a plastic bag and wait five minutes. Rinse, than wash your hair.
Baking soda can help remove these natural hair conditioners, as can a vinegar rinse.
Make your final hair rinse either cold water, as cold as you can stand or apple cider vinegar with or without essential oils added. Rosemary essential oil is great for people with dark hair while chamomile essential oil is good for those with light colored hair.
