How to make hair conditioner at home (natural recipe)?
It has almost become an indispensable part of everybody’s hair care routine to apply hair conditioner after washing with shampoo. One primary reason why people condition their hair is to make it easy to comb and easy to style.
However, one major problem that most people have with applying store-bought hair conditioner to their hair is that it leaves a thin layer of chemicals that accumulate over time on the scalp.
This thin layer of compounds can block the pores on the skin of the head. Furthermore, a lot of industrial hair conditioners have been discovered to cover the hair follicles with cosmetic silicon which is not healthy.
This cosmetic silicone makes the hair more cumbersome to maintain and also makes it very greasy and very scanty. All the chemical additives gather up on the skin, and it blocks the access of oxygen as well as significantly reducing the effectiveness of other hair products that are meant to nourish and strengthen your hair.
Once you notice that your hair has become dry and brittle looks very unhealthy and also has become too stubborn for you to come and style then it is a sign that you must change your hair conditioner.
