10 DIY Conditioners That Will Solve All Your Hair Woes In A Jiffy
I’m such a sucker for hair-care DIYs. They’re economical, effective, and so easy to recreate at home. I’ve put many recipes to the test over the years, some for dandruff and itching and others for hair fall and dullness. It’s safe to say that my hair has survived it all, if not thrived.
I bring you to some of my all-time favourite homemade hair conditioners — name your concern and you’ll find it in this list. I’ve also added in readymade conditioners that you can simply indulge in on busy days.
10 DIY Conditioners To Whip Up In 10 Minutes
Honey-Olive Oil Hair Conditioner
The honey-olive oil DIY tackles dryness and dandruff head-on. Both ingredients are ultra-hydrating. Since honey has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, it can fight dandruff naturally. This homemade conditioner is pretty simple to whip up.
Mix two tablespoons of honey with four tablespoons of olive oil. Divide your hair into four or five sections and apply the mixture throughout each section. Cover your hair with a shower-cap and leave it on for 30 minutes. You can, then, wash it off with your go-to shampoo and conditioner.
Use: MyGlamm Superfoods Cacao, Coconut, & Coffee Conditioner
Smoothening & Softening Hair Conditioner
If your hair is frizzy and dull, the MyGlamm Superfoods Cacao, Coconut, & Coffee Conditioner is what you need. This hair care product can stimulate hair growth and make your strands stronger while infusing them with much-needed moisture. Get it now!
Coconut Oil is extremely hydrating for the hair. Heat four tablespoons of the oil for a minute or two. Begin to massage your scalp with it before working downward toward your tips. Massaging can stimulate more blood flow and, hence, hair growth.
Dip a towel in a pan of hot water and then squeeze out the excess water.. Let the DIY hair conditioner soak for a minute before wrapping this towel around your head to lock in the moisture from the oil. After 45 minutes, wash your hair as you normally would.
Egg Yolk Conditioner
Eggs excel at deep conditioning your hair and reinstating their shine. Along with Olive Oil’s ultra-hydrating abilities, this egg and hair oil mask is a boon for those with dry, damaged hair.
Mix two yolks with two tablespoons of the oil to create a paste. You can add some water to make the paste runnier and easier to apply. Separate your hair into smaller sections and layer the mask on next. Put a shower cap on right after and leave the DIY conditioner on for an hour or two. The last step involves washing it off thoroughly with a shampoo and conditioner.
Use: MyGlamm Superfoods Onion & Moringa Conditioner
If your hair has been falling excessively, the MyGlamm Superfoods Onion & Moringa Conditioner will offer you respite. Onions excel at reducing hair loss while Moringa smoothens and strengthens each strand without drying them out. And, no, it doesn’t smell like onions. So go ahead and treat yourself to this conditioner ASAP.
Coconut Milk Conditioner
Coconut Milk is extremely moisturising. If heat-styling tools and chemicals have damaged your hair, this leave-on conditioner is excellent at undoing all the damage. It can even strengthen each strand and fight dandruff.
Mix some milk with 2 tablespoons of olive/coconut oil and rosewater. Run this solution through your hair and leave it on for about 15 minutes before washing it off.
Baking Soda Conditioner
Baking Soda is the best at removing dirt and build-up from your hair. Since it has antifungal properties and can reset your scalp’s pH balance, it even fights off infections, dandruff, and irritation in the scalp easily.
Just mix one-fourth soda with half a cup of your go-to conditioner. Apply the resulting paste to your hair and seal it all in with a shower cap for 15 minutes. Wash it off after with a mild, sulphate-free shampoo.
Use: MyGlamm Superfoods Passion Fruit & Olive Conditioner
Nourishing & Moisturizing Conditioner with nourishing extracts from superfoods
The MyGlamm Superfoods Passion Fruit & Olive Conditioner is the best at repairing dry and damaged hair. It softens and nourishes the mane while locking in moisture to reduce dryness and roughness. This is your one-way ticket to silky, smooth hair.
Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner
ACV can fight frizz, detangle your hair, and even enhance the health of your scalp thanks to its antifungal and antibacterial properties. It keeps the scalp and hair’s pH level balanced and fights infections like dandruff too.
Mix a cup of water with two tablespoons of ACV. Keep it aside for a while and go on with shampooing and conditioning your hair. Pour the ACV over your strands and scalp next, like you’re rinsing your hair with it. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then rinse your hair off.
Shea Butter Conditioner
Shea Butter is extremely soothing and gentle on the scalp. It has anti-inflammatory properties that can treat infections, flakiness, and irritation safely. It can prevent split ends and add a shine to your mane while protecting it from sun damage and environmental aggressors.
Mix one tablespoon of shea with two tablespoons of olive oil first and warm it up a little. Add a tablespoon of argan oil along with any essential oil of your choice to the solution. Let it cool a little and apply it to your hair. Leave it for 30 minutes before washing it off.
Use: St. Botanica Go Anti Dandruff Hair Conditioner
The St. Botanica Go Anti Dandruff Hair Conditioner is perfect for those of you who are struggling with dandruff. It contains Moroccan Argan Oil, Grapefruit extract and Vitamin E that cleanses, soothes, and prevents flakiness and dandruff from damaging your hair. Finish with an anti-frizz hair serum and notice how your mane reacts to it.
Banana Hair Conditioner
Bananas contain silica that not only enhance hair growth but also make your hair look shinier and silkier in general. The fruit also moisturises your hair.
Mash a ripe banana and mix in one tablespoon of olive oil and honey to create a smooth paste. Apply this paste from root to tip and let it sit for 30 minutes before washing it off.
Yoghurt Hair Conditioner
Yoghurt is a yes for the hair. It deeply hydrates the strands, fights dandruff, reverses damage, and reduces frizz. There’s nothing it cannot do. That’s why it must be your go-to hair-care DIY ingredient.
Mix two tablespoons of yoghurt with one egg and one teaspoon of olive oil. Apply it to the hair and wash it off after 15 minutes.
Use: St Botanica Go Volume Hair Conditioner
If your goal is to thicken your hair, the St Botanica Go Volume Hair Conditioner is your go to. It contains Brahmi Extract, Wheat Protein, and Pea Protein that promote the healthy growth of hair and strengthen the strands. Keratin Protein makes your hair look straight and sleek after washing. Rest assured, these work together to make your mane lush and thick in no time.
Aloe Vera Conditioner
Apart from cooling and soothing the scalp, aloe vera can reduce hair loss and encourage hair growth. It even controls grease and protects the hair from U.V damage. It fights frizz, hydrates, and counters any fungal infections on the scalp.
Scoop out the gel from a freshly plucked leaf. Cut two bananas into pieces. Add both, the gel and the bananas to a blender. Blend it all together. After shampooing your hair, apply the conditioner to your strands with a brush. Make sure you’re covering your roots and scalp too. Leave it on for 2 hours and wash it off after.
