Making your own hair products
Today, I had an epiphany while reading a blog post on Curly Nikki. The guest blogger, Dawn Michelle of Minimalist Beauty, was writing about going comb free and made reference to making her own hair products. I was thinking, hmm, that will be so cool to do. You know, I am always up for a challenge. In the past, I have made my own Shea butter creme and oil mix, which we use daily. I would like to make my own - Shampoo, Deep Conditioner, Leave-in Conditioner, Styler, and Gel.
I decided to google: making your own hair products and there were over 76 million search results. Wow! The first result I saw gave a comprehensive list of homemade hair products, ranging from natural to organic products (Hair Products Recipes).
Check it out and let me know what you think. I have not tried making any of these products, but will be trying some in the future. Remember to only make a small batch at a time, due to preservation reasons.
Have you made your own hair products? Any tips for a starter hair-chemist?
