Natural Hair Conditioners to go with your shampoo bar

These recipes for hair conditioners work fabulously with our shampoo bars, and like all our other products, contain no nasty chemicals or preservatives. In fact you can probably find many of the ingredients already in your kitchen cupboards.

 

 

  • Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse

Vinegar hair rinses are brilliant for detangling hair, removing excess product build up, and giving your hair a lovely shine. Some also say that it's good for dandruff.

Get a jug of warm water and pour in a good glug of apple cider vinegar, pour through your hair, let it sit for a couple of minutes and then rinse. Once your hair has dried the faint vinegar smell should disappear.

 

  • Green Tea Rinse

Green Tea has lots of antioxidants in it, and as well as the health benefits of drinking it, it can also be applied to the skin. There are also rumours that helps prevent hair loss, but we'll let you decide that for yourselves!

Steep 100g green tea in a litre of hot water for about half an hour and then strain. After shampooing, pour the green tea through your hair and let it sit for a couple of minutes before rinsing.

 

  • Honey Conditioner

Honey is very high in vitamins and minerals and is also a humectant, which means it holds on to water molecules, making it a good moisturiser.

Use local honey if you can and help support your local beekeepers. You can find out details of local beekeepers from the British Beekeepers Association by clicking here. Mix two tablespoons of honey into a litre of water, and pour through hair. Rinse thoroughly afterwards.

 

  • Mint Tea Rinse

Mint is another herb that is good for healthy hair and scalps, and it also smells lovely. Why not grow a bit of mint on your windowsill if you like this recipe? It's so easy to do. Have a look here for a great how-to.

Steep a big handful of fresh mint leaves in a litre of hot water for half an hour and then strain. After shampooing, pour the mint tea through your hair and let it sit for a couple of minutes before rinsing.
