Hair and Beauty Care Products You Can Make From Ingredients in Your Kitchen

When it comes to taking care of your hair and your skin, it can feel like the list of chemicals on the bottles makes the product designer have not create larger bottles just to fit it all in!

And while there is no doubt that many of these products do that they claim they will do, almost all of them will do it with the use of chemicals.

If you are tired of putting chemicals through your hair and on your skin, below are three great hair and beauty products you can make in your kitchen

Oily Hair

Of all the hair types, oily hair has to be the worst! Why? Because instead of manageable locks you are left with thick hair that drips oil over the shiny new shoes you just picked up from the Groupon Coupons page for Journeys. Okay, maybe it isn’t that bad, but you get the idea.

Instead of your regular scalp and hair treatments which are full of nasty chemicals, consider making your own.

Start with:

  • Around 7-8 ounces of water
  • A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar

Once you have these, add half of the water into a bowl and stir in the apple cider vinegar. Then, slowly continue to add more water until you reach a consistency to spark your hair. Then, find yourself somewhere comfortable and give your hair a good rinse through with the solution.

Of course, once you have finished you will want to wash out any of the excess solution, and any excess oil that it has taken away with it!

Dry Hair

Of course, at the other end of the spectrum is dry hair, which is almost just as unmanageable as oily hair.  If you find yourself battling dry hair each morning, here is a great natural alternative.

You will need:

That’s it! Take the flaxseed oil and pour a small amount into the palm of your hand. Then, rub your hands together gently before patting the oil through your hair. When you do this, try to avoid your scalp as this can lead to clogged pores and potential scalp problems and irritations.

Once the oil has been in your hair for about 10 minutes give it a solid rinse and then let it dry naturally. Once it is dry you will find that your hair is much easier to manage and will look fantastic!

A Facial

Finally, it’s time for a facial! And while you may be used to lathering on lawyers and lawyers of chemicals, this tip is a little more delicious.

You will need:

Once you have these two items, pour the yogurt into a bowl, then slowly drizzle in honey until you have made a thick paste. With the paste, smother it all over your face and neck then sit back and relax for around 10 minutes.

Once the time is up, resist the urge to eat the face cream and instead wash it off with clean water, then dry your face completely with a fresh clean towel.

Keeping your hair and skin looking and feeling good doesn’t have to involve a lot of chemicals, just a few ingredients from your pantry and refrigerator!
