Homemade hair conditioners for extra body and bounce

Updated on May 22, 2015

That hair conditioners are good for your tresses, is an established fact. A good conditioner can reverse hair damage and give a new lease to dull, damaged and listless hair. Conditioners lock in moisture and provide hair with nutrients that improve hair texture and quality.

Conditioners made using natural ingredients are as potent as ones bought off the shelf. Hair conditioners using ingredients from the kitchen can in fact provide your hair with more nourishment than any commercially available product.

Nutrients present in natural products are easily absorbed by the scalp and hair. Additionally, the chance of an allergic reaction is negligible. The hair benefits from the nourishment it receives and this result in hair that is healthy, bouncy and tangle free.

Here are a few recipes for conditioners that use natural ingredients and can be prepared in the kitchen. They are inexpensive, and provide terrific results.

High protein conditioner

This is an excellent conditioner for dry and damaged hair. It repairs hair damage, seals split ends and promotes healthy hair.

You’ll need the following ingredients –

  1. ¼ cup castor oil
  2. 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  3. 3 egg yolks
  4. 2 tbsp honey
  5. Few drops of lavender/rosemary essential oil (optional)

Transfer the ingredients in a blender to make a smooth homogeneous mix.

Part the hair and dab healthy amounts of the mix on the scalp. Apply the balance on the hair and wear a shower cap to avoid dripping.

Leave the olive oil and yolk mix on for 30-45 minutes and rinse the hair with tepid water. For best results let the hair dry naturally and shampoo the hair the next morning. But, if you cannot bear the ‘eggy’ smell you can shampoo your hair right away.

This high protein hair pack provides nourishment to the hair essential for healthy growth. Use this conditioner once a week and you’ll find your hair visibly thicker, softer and lovelier.

Extra body conditioner

If your hair is limp and falls flat, you could do with this conditioner. This homemade recipe will strengthen each strand of hair and lend it extra bounce and volume.

Ingredients for the conditioner

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • ½ cup powdered mung bean (moong dal)

Mix all the ingredients into a smooth paste and apply the same evenly on the scalp and hair. Leave it on for ½ hour and wash off using a mild shampoo.

The pack will leave your hair feeling soft and bouncy. The ingredients in this pack will help fight dandruff and rid your hair of dryness and split ends. You’ll have hair to be proud of.

Conditioner for bounce and shine

Dull, lifeless hair can be revived with the use of a simple ingredient, available in almost every home.

You will need

  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup water

Mix the two liquids and apply on hair after it has been shampooed. Leave it on for 2-3 minutes and rinse with plain water. The result will be startling. You’ll find your hair to be squeaky clean, sparkling and with a bounce.

Try this remedy after each shampoo and you’ll never have a bad hair day. If apple cider vinegar is not available you can use regular vinegar, but water it down so the ratio is 1:4. The result will be the same.

Beer drinkers can use leftover beer as an after shampoo rinse, the same way as you’d use the vinegar. Though, beer is best used undiluted.

So, the next time you find your hair feeling rough, dry, unmanageable or splitting at the ends resort to the above treatments. It’s best that these treatments are followed regularly.
