Raise your hand if you run out of hair conditioner before you run out of shampoo. You're not the only one, so don't feel guilty. If you have dry hair, then you know that conditioner is a requirement for every shower. Next time you're at the grocery store, just buy homemade hair conditioner ingredients instead of a 28-oz bottle that won't last long.
It doesn't matter what kind of hair type you have. If you have curly hair, straight hair, or wavy hair, you experience frizzy hair. Luckily, it can be hydrated with a homemade hair conditioner. This recipe will leave your hair feeling soft, revived, and even smelling like flowers.
DIY Hair Conditioner Recipe
This DIY conditioner only needs four natural ingredients. Avocado and coconut oil is very nourishing to your hair. Back when I used to box dye my hair (it was high school don't judge), I needed a moisturizing remedy to save my fried hair.
I often made homemade hair masks with a hydrating natural oil like avocado or jojoba oil. Although, I wasn't exposed to the world of essential oils yet. If I would've had peppermint or rosemary essential oil in my DIY hair masks, that would've been the end of my drugstore hair conditioner obsession.
Healthy hair will always be a necessity for my beauty and wellness routine. I get my split ends cut when my hair needs it. I do my best to keep my hair care very strict; I know that shampooing my hair every day is not necessary for me, but conditioning my hair daily is a must.

Also, if you're looking at DIY hair growth remedies that call for egg yolk, be careful. I shampooed my hair with hot water after, and my hair began smelling like a skillet full of eggs on a Sunday morning.
When it comes down to it, the best tip I can give for healthy hair is to set down the heat styling tool. Pin straight and curled hair styled by heating tools may look beautiful, but you don't have to do it every day.
A messy bun, braid, or just natural hair day may not seem glamorous to you, but your hair will thank you.

Whether you're making homemade lotion or conditioner, you'll want to keep your DIY conditioning treatment in a jar or squeeze bottle.
I love putting argan oil in my hair, but I've heard amazing things about olive oil for hair conditioning. An Amazon customer left a five-star review and said, "Light oil that smells good and not too greasy great for hair."
I like to make sure that my conditioner has been saturated throughout my hair evenly. To make sure my hair cuticles have been sealed, I apply DIY conditioner with a coloring brush.
