Homemade Hair Conditioner – Everything You Need To Know!

Hair conditioners are important for both men and women. To get the best hairstyle, you would need to apply some amount of hair conditioner to smoothen your hair and set it out.

A hair conditioner is an essential part of the daily beauty routine. However, hair conditioners available on the market can create problems for your hair.

For instance, recent research studies have found that hair conditioners contain harmful chemicals that weaken the hair strands instead of nourishing and protecting them.


A lot of people don’t know about Sodium Laureth Sulfate – a foaming agent found in many hair products. This ingredient in most commercial hair products, like hair conditioners, can dry your hair and cause allergic reactions on your scalp.

Many hairstylists and experts who are inclined towards natural remedies for both skin and hair care recommend the use of homemade hair conditioners and shampoos.

In this article, we will tell you why you should use a homemade hair conditioner. Read on!


Shiny and Stronger Hair strands

Homemade hair conditioners can make your hair shiny and stronger. For example, vinegar and eggs can be used in hair conditioner for these effects. Eggs add shine to your hair and therefore are an effective conditioner.


To make your hair stronger, you should use olive oil, which acts as an amazing elixir.

Similarly, honey can keep your hair hydrated whereas vinegar acts as a fantastic cleaning agent and great protector to prevent hair loss.

  1. Hi Catherine,

    Thanks for educating me on homemade hair conditioners.

    I didn’t know certain hair conditioners on the market can contain chemicals on the market, like Sodium Laureth Sulfate that can damage your hair.

    I have thick hair. Is there one of the above home made conditions on the market that you would recommend for my hair?

  2. Well, this post was an interesting read! I didn’t even know that homemade hair conditioners existed, but you proved it through your knowledge and understanding.

    I’ll have to try this out and make my own sometime.

    Great post!

    1. Hi Eric, I am delighted to hear that this information I have provided to you has inspired you to try it making it for yourself. There are so many health benefits that came from making your own. I am sure you will enjoy it as much as I do.

  3. Absolutely love these recipes for home made hair conditioners. I have been using coconut oil on my hair lately and I love it because it keeps my hair soft and shiny especially with all the humidity that my hair is exposed to on a daily basis.

  4. Hi Catherine

    Thank you for the information you provide on the homemade hair conditioner. I have personally witnessed someone who has used shampoos and conditioners over a period of 15 years.

    Their hair is falling out like crazy now. I believe it is from those harmful chemicals. This is my personal opinion. I used to sell natural products back then and they educated me on chemicals in products. Now I don’t even go there. I threw away all the bad products I had.

    Thank you for this post. I am sure it will help a lot of people to become aware of what is in the products people use every day. I will always make my own conditioner!


    1. Hi Midsummer, wow this is very alarming. I knew these chemical-based products were harmful but I never knew they could have these kinds of effects. I was under the impression that the chemicals would irritate the skin. I will have to do some research into this. Thank you for reading.

  5. Hi Catherine!
    Wow!! This is really interesting. I did not realized hair conditioner was so easy to make. I am going to try this. Do you use all of the conditioner at one time or can you just use a little at a time?
