13 Delightfully  Wonderful Homemade  Hair Conditioners You Must  Try ...

I didn't ever think that I could make home hair conditioner, but really, it's easy! There are also so many different homemade hair conditioners to try, it really makes it hard to choose! If you are looking to be a little more green and also create some homemade hair conditioners to try, why not take a look at my top 13 that I've tried and that I know work? I promise, they will make your hair shiny, beautiful, and silky soft! Plus, you'll save a pretty penny!

1 Mayo, Egg Whites & Yogurt

I know that this homemade hair conditioner sounds disgusting, but it does really work! It's also going to make your hair look beautiful from the inside out! You can swap out plain yogurt for vanilla to make it smell better and also make sure that you rinse this hair conditioner out in warm water, not hot!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
egg whites from 1 egg

Seriously, that’s it!

Directions:

Whip all that deep conditioning goodness around in a bowl, and you’re ready to rock. Lather it onto your hair, focusing on the ends where you’ll likely have the most damage, and make sure to really coat all the strands of hair.

Slap on a shower cap, and turn on your favorite episode of Dancing with the Stars while you wait for the conditioner to work its magic. It needs to sit on your head for about 30 minutes.

Another note: it will drip, which is totally nasty {but worth it in the end!}, so I recommend doing one of two things: tucking tissue or cotton balls around the edges of the shower cap, just like in the good old days of the home perm, or wrapping your head in a wet towel. Your choice.

When you’re all done waiting patiently to see your beautiful conditioned tresses, it’s time to rinse. Rinse really, really, really, REALLY well using LUKEWARM water. Hot water + egg whites = breakfast.

After you rinse you can opt to shampoo your hair, or wait and let the conditioner keep working its glorious magic. It’s your choice, your foxy hair.

2 Honey

The next homemade hair conditioner that we're going to talk about is honey hair conditioner! This one smells so much better than the one above and it's as effective! Just keep in mind some of the ingredients and how much you use, especially if you have naturally oily hair.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup Savannah Bee Company honey (you may substitute any local or organic honey)

4 tablespoons light olive oil (depending on hair type, use lesser amount for oily hair)

Directions:

In a small bowl, mix together Savannah Bee Company honey and olive oil until full integrated. Pour mixture through a funnel into a plastic bottle with a squeeze top lid.

When ready to use, gently shake mixture and massage into your hair until evenly covered. Cover your head with a shower cap and allow the conditioner to stay on your hair for at least 30 minutes and up to an hour. Shampoo and rinse your hair thoroughly.

8 Apple Cider Vinegar

I'm pretty sure everyone who uses apple cider vinegar has a love-hate relationship with it! My sister and I used to take "shots" of apple cider vinegar to get a boost of nutrients, but that was too nasty! However, I'm not opposed to using it in my hair! Apply cider vinegar, or ACV, will condition your hair, balance pH levels, and smooth your hair cuticles.

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon ACV
1 cup Water

Directions:
Combine in a spray bottle. Spray mixture into your hair and massage it into your scalp for one to two minutes. Then rinse.

1/2 cup of regular conditioner
1/4 cup olive oil
