We’ve already listed a few leave-in conditioners. We’re going to try out a simpler rinse out conditioner this time around.
Basically, I wanted a simple and easy recipe, but more than just the regular ACV and such. I wanted something that will leave the locks shiny, soft and also healthier. So, ready for the recipe?
Water – 150 Ml
Essential Oil – 7 Drops
ACV – 6 Tsp.
Aloe Juice – a few drops
Add all the ingredients to a spritzer.
Shake well and use as needed!
How to Add the Right Essential Oil?
All Hair / ScalpTypes – If you don’t know your scalp type or if you have normal scalp or want something neutral, use Sage Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil or Rosemary Essential Oil.
Dry Hair – If you have dry hair, use Lavender Essential Oil, Geranium Essential Oil or Sandalwood Essential Oil.
Oily Hair – If you have Oily Hair or Scalp, use Bergamot Essential Oil, Tea Tree Essential Oil or Lemon Essential Oil.
Dandruff – If you have Dandruff, use Tea Tree Essential Oil, Citriodora Oil or Wintergreen Oil.
Damaged Hair – If your hair is damaged, use Rejuvenating Oils like Argan Oil, Frankincense Essential Oil, etc.
How to Use the Conditioner?
Shake the bottle before every use. Now, spray on your hair after showering / shampooing. Wait for about 7 minutes and rinse off. Air-dry your hair.
Tips to Tweak the Recipe
You can use normal vinegar, instead of ACV, though ACV has given best results.
You can substitute Lemon Juice for ACV, though Lemon Juice should be diluted more than ACV.
If you find your hair dry after rinsing out like ACV does sometimes, you can also add a few drops of Glycerin or Honey. Aloe juice should combat it, but Glycerin and Honey can also be added to help.
The essential oils can be chosen according to your hair and scalp type or requirements as listed above. However, if you have a specific preference, feel fee to use it. However, it is good to not use oils that would work against your scalp or hair type. So go with essential oils that won’t affect your hair or scalp, negatively.
If you are planning to use it as a leave-in conditioner, skip the ACV and use herbal hydrosols along with essential oils. Examples are Lavender Hydrosol, Rosemary Antioxidant Extract, Aloe Juice, etc. You can combine it with other ingredients and work out to find what works for you best.
If your scalp is very oily, you can also add a few drops of Witch Hazel to regulate scalp’s sebum levels.
If your scalp / hair is dry after showering and using this spray, try oily your hair and scalp 30 – 45 minutes before showering and see if it helps.
