Some vital tips on preparing and using homemade hair conditioners
Using the homemade hair conditioners can do a great job for your hairs and the best thing about them is that they come without any side effects. However, to get the best results from these homemade potions it is important that you maintain few cautions while preparing the conditioners and also for using them. Here are some tips that can ensure that you get the best effects of these conditioners in the easiest way,
- When you are preparing a hair conditioner with fresh ingredients, like fresh fruits, eggs, yogurt and others, it is best to use the conditioner immediately onto your hairs. These ingredients are very rich in nutrients and they can quickly become the food of bacteria and fungus. So, storing them even in the fridge is not a good idea. Prepare them fresh just before use and apply them within 10-15 minutes. You can store the ACV and water conditioner in an air tight container within the fridge for up to one week.
- While preparing these conditioners always ensure to maintain the best hygiene to avoid any kind of infections. Wash your hands properly, each of the ingredients as well as all the containers in which you will be preparing the conditioner. Prefer to use clean spoons for mixing the ingredients instead of your hands. In case you are using a mixer or grinder ensure that it is properly cleaned.
- The home made conditioners can work effectively on your hairs when used in the right way as mentioned above. However, keeping them for longer hours on your hairs will not do any extra good. Rather, if you let the packs get dried on your scalp and hairs, it can actually result into scalp and hair drying. Hence, ensure that none of these packs get dried on your hairs and keep them on only for the mentioned span of time.
