I am so in love with my natural hair care regimen it’s unbelievable; and everyone should know! Let me tell you why and how I got here
Well, a long time ago I found out that my appearance is a representation of my inner me, and a soft, healthy, shiny and bouncy head of hair is what represents me best. It helped my self-confidence knowing that my appearance was really whom I felt inside
But I also realized that the hair care products I was using were not really doing that for me (that’s an understatement.) They didn’t make me happy and certainly didn’t do what I wanted them to do. Some of them did even more harm than good. My friends got me all kinds of hair care advice, recommended a kazillion different products, but nothing worked for me (…sigh)
Hair scare forest
At some point my hair and I felt we were wandering through this ginormous scary commercial hair care forest, not seeing the forest for the trees anymore. We were really lost and desperate, my hair and me…and thirsty…and broke…well close enough
…nothing really, no epiphany, no earthquake, no flashing light bulb…. The closest to an epiphany I got was a small seed planted by…hold on…my grandma. She once looked at my frizzy hair and me with her I’ve-seen-it-all-before wise and gentle eyes, shook her head and murmured that a simple dollop of olive oil did it back when…and I forgot about it, stubborn as I was/am (/am part added by my dear husband ;-)
After the umpteenth disappointment I sat in my kitchen using some pretty strong words that I won’t repeat right here; simply not suitable... Then, like it always happens in movies, my eye caught the bottle of olive oil on the countertop. Without thinking I walked over poured some in my hand and spread it through my hair and…it felt disgusting…at first. But when it settled and I looked into the mirror and felt my hair again, I was in total happy shock
For all these years I was into natural remedies and natural treatments of ailments and conditions, but not once considered natural homemade hair and skin care. How stubborn can a person be…
Natural Hair Reboot
That’s it really, I experimented all I could and (re)searched the whole natural hair care world (After thanking granny with all my heart…) First I used just what suited my needs and later started collecting every homemade hair care recipe I could get my hands on. My hair really got rebooted into its natural state. You know what, I even convinced my husband to join in
And we’re really each other’s hair-opposites, if you can call it that. Me with my dry black frizzy curly hair and he with his straight blond and oily hair. But we found everything we needed and more. We took the natural hair care road and started making our own homemade hair products and and never looked back...until now...When I wanted to share all my our info, I had to dig deep into our "archives" and that brought back all kinds of sweet memories
We want to share with you all the natural hair care recipes of the homemade hair products we collected over the years. To help out people like you who want to go the natural way and are looking for ideas, tips, guidance, confirmation that it works…whatever it is you need
The ingredients in these natural hair care recipes are natural (no kiddin’…? ;-) not expensive ("cheap" sometimes sounds so … cheap) easy to come by or could even be waiting for you already in or around your home. Some of them however might require some extra effort to find but we’ll try our best to be of help for that as well
We’ve subdivided these homemade hair products in homemade shampoo recipes, conditioners, rinses, styling products, hair dyes, treatments and remedies. We wish the best of luck in the natural hair care world
