Homemade Hair Conditioners - Frugal Home Hair Care Recipes

weird uses for hair conditioner
Homemade hair conditioners can be made with simple household ingredients.

Video guide and step-by-step instructions on an apple cider vinegar home made hair conditioner recipe, as well as other conditioner ideas. This frugal recipe is part of a larger series of home hair care recipes.

Our main homemade hair conditioner recipe is a standard rinse that you can use after shampooing with our castile based shampoo, or the baking soda No Poo. Watch the video and get started below.

Home Made Hair Conditioner Recipe

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • Mix the water and apple cider vinegar.

    Store in a spray bottle, or mix a new batch right before you wash your hair.

    I like to add in a few drops of tea tree essential oil, but this is not required.

    To use this frugal recipe, rub the rinse into your scalp and rinse under hot water.

    That's it! If your hair seems a little oily, you can try using the rinse on the ends of your hair only.

    Other Conditioner Recipes

    Here are some other recipes for homemade hair conditioners:

    Use lemon juice instead of apple cider vinegar. Keep in mind, lemon juice tends to lighten hair after repetitive uses.

    For a deep conditioner, try kneading a few tablespoons of olive oil into your hair and scalp when it is dry. Put a shower cap on and leave it sit for a few hours, or even overnight.

    For a leave in conditioner, try a small amount of coconut oil. Not only does it smell great, but it makes a terrific defrizzer.

    Other Uses for Store-Bought Conditioner

    Now that you've found these terrific money-saving recipes for more natural hair conditioners, you might be wondering what to do with that leftover bottle of conditioner in your bathroom. Here are some surprising uses for conditioner:
  • Shaving Cream - use on your legs for a smooth shave.

  • Woolite Substitute - if you need to wash delicates, try conditioner!

  • Eye Makeup Remover - apply a small amount with a Q-tip.

  • Hair Detangler- add water and store in a spray bottle

  • Moisturizing Lotion - a small dab will do you.

  • Removes Band-Aids and Temporary Tattoos - Why do the kids always want to put on those temporary tattoos that businesses give them? They stick like crazy, unless, you use conditioner to get them off

  • Clean Houseplants - the dust will come off and it will make them shine (makes sense, as it is intended to make hair shine!)

  • Polish Chrome and Stainless Steel - stick a bottle of conditioner under your sink for cleaning day, and use it to polish your stainless steel and chrome appliances and faucets

  • Zipper Lubricant -a little drop of conditioner will make your coat and sleeping bag zippers move much easier

  • Prevents Rust - apply to garden and garage tools (or anything else that may be left out in the rain) to prevent rust

  • Lubricate Doors and Windows- better smelling than WD-40, take the squeaky noise away with a dollop of conditioner

  • What wacky uses have you used conditioner for?
