Published on November 26th 2014 by under DIY

Hair-Conditioners are meant to be used to help your hair retain the moisture, bounce, fluffiness and luster, which might have got lost after a strong shampoo bath. Even otherwise, it is also necessary to wash your hair with a good conditioner from time to time, just to keep your blonde or black hair remain at the pink of their health!

Natural Homemade Hair Conditioner

It is necessary, and in fact a responsibility, to wash your hair with a healthy hair conditioner after a shampoo bath, but better if you take a little effort to make your own shampoo at home. We also recommend using your own homemade dry shampoo, because Yes, it HAS to be ‘healthy’, we literally mean. Now it’s up to you, which conditioner available in the store would you choose to be healthy and deem fit for your much-loved hair. We strongly advise, stay away from all those crude, strong, chemically-enhanced conditioners, that would ultimately damage and destroy your hair in no time.

Just as we have entertained our readers to go green, and follow the ways of Nature in our past articles, so do we repeat here. We have discussed ways about how to make homemade detergents, jewelry cleaners or homemade shampoos. We now will share with our readers the best possible ‘Natural’ ways to make their own hair conditioners at home, and at a very low cost and much less effort to treat their damaged or already-healthy hair.

1. DIY Natural Homemade Deep Conditioner using Vinegar


  • Apple cider vinegar – 1 tbsp
  • Water – 1 cup

How to make natural homemade conditioner

Simply pour both the ingredients together in a bottle and mix well. Apply on the scalp and rub along through the length of your hair, as much you can. That’s all. The above recipe makes around 8 ounces and can be stored for further use. You can use plain tap water for the purpose. This is safe for all hair types, from curly to straight to African-American hair, or light/blonde to dark hair.

2. DIY Natural Homemade Conditioner for greasy/oily hair


  • Apple cider vinegar – 1 tbsp
  • Water – 1 cup
  • Any of the following essential oils: sandalwood, lavender, lemon, tea tree, ylang ylang, bergamot or rosemary


Take a mixture of cider vinegar diluted with water, and to this, add around 6 to 8 drops of any of the essential oils. Then apply it in the same way on your scalp and hair roots and wash off after 10 to 15 minutes.

3. DIY Natural Homemade Conditioner for dandruff/dry scalp


  • Apple cider vinegar – 1 tbsp
  • Water – 1 cup
  • Any of the following essential oils: peppermint, tea tree, lemon, sage, rosemary or eucalyptus


Dilute apple cider vinegar with water. To this, add any of the essential oils mentioned above. Rub this mixture onto your scalp and hair roots and all through the length of your hair. Hold for 10 to 15 minutes before washing off.

4. DIY Natural Homemade Conditioner for all hair types


  • Apple cider vinegar – 2-3 cups
  • Rosemary – 4-5 sprigs


Steep the rosemary sprigs in the apple vinegar in a bowl and set aside for 7 to 12 days. Then after, remove the rosemary from the vinegar and use it normally (like above) on your scalp and hair roots. Rosemary is an excellent herb that goes for all types of hair. Other than its enchanting aroma, it will impart all the herbal benefits to your hair.


This process works best. However, if you don’t want to wait that long, you can as well add 6 to 8 drops of rosemary essential oil to the conditioner and use it instantly.

5. DIY Natural Homemade Conditioner using coconut/olive oil

Apply coconut or olive oil directly to your hair and rub gently all along the length. Don’t forget the scalp. Pay special attention to the hair-tips. Wash off after allowing the oil to sit for a couple of minutes. Later, rinse it properly, and your hair will be conditioned properly, but it won’t leave your hair oily or greasy.


Other natural ingredients like Sesame Seed Oil, Mayonnaise, Avocado, Greek Yogurt and Banana are also helpful for dull, damaged, undernourished hair types and acts as a natural homemade hair conditioner at your hand’s reach.
