8 Easy Hair Product DIYs For The Shiniest Locks Of Your Life
So, you’re not much of a DIY’er. It’s just not your jam. Your idea of making something from scratch is pouring cake mix into a bowl and adding some eggs. I totally get it. But if you’re ever going to break into the world wide web of arts and crafts, you should start with homemade hair products. Why? Because it’s easy. And because it’s really difficult to mess up. And unlike those sneaker hacks or DIY printables, you can totally start over again without having to run to the store to get more materials…because most everything in these hair product recipes are already in your kitchen cabinet.
Not to mention the price tag. The cost of those salon dry shampoos and luxury restorative conditioners alone are reason enough to give one of these at-home projects a try. If you’re not convinced yet, here’s another reason: you’ll know exactly what’s going into your hair. Sure, that bottle of serum says it’s organic and it’s only got jojoba oil in it, but it’s probably got other additives in there, too, which might be ruining your hair as a result. Trust me. These eight super simple DIY hair products might just change your life. Try it out and thank me later.
