Homemade Leave In Conditioner

Winter has not been nice to my already frizz-prone, fine hair!  I came up with recipe because I’ve enjoyed my DIY herbal conditioner so much and wanted to find a way to use more of it in my hair.  I first tried using the original recipe but it was a little too potent and weighed down my hair.  Diluting it with uber-moisturing aloe vera juice ended up making it just right…silky soft hair with absolutely no weight or residue!

I use it both after I shower (on damp hair) and pretty much every day between washes (just spritz on dry hair).

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup DIY herbal conditioner 
  • 1/4 cup aloe vera juice
  • 3 drops lavender essential oil (optional, just for scent…can substitute any other scent you like)

Steps:

1. Pour the herbal conditioner and aloe vera juice in a mixing bowl with a spout (or just a regular one if you can pour better than I can!).

2.  Mix well.

3.  Add in the lavender essential oil, if using, and stir well.

4. Decant into a spray bottle.  You can double or triple this recipe if you have a larger spray bottle and tons of hair to condition.

I keep mine in the fridge and shake before using.
