DIY, all-natural hair products rock! That’s because commercial ones can be super expensive. It seems as if every time I walk into a store or pick up a magazine, I discover that hair product costs have risen. The other day I saw a shampoo for $60! That’s crazy, especially for something that you are literally going to wash down the drain. That’s why you should start making your own hair products. Not only do you end up saving money, but if you use the recipes listed below, you will be putting nothing but all-natural ingredients on your hair and scalp. $60 for a bottle of toxic chemicals or just a couple of cents for all-natural products? Hmm, let me think on that…
Customized Herbal Shampoo
This shampoo is amazing! Not only is it completely natural, but it is also customizable depending upon what herbs you add. So you can create a shampoo that treats any list of hair and scalp conditions. You can even turn into a color enhancing shampoo! Wow!

Homemade Hair Conditioner
This DIY recipe is chock-full of nourishing ingredients like olive oil and shea butter. Plus, it does triple duty as a deep conditioner, hair mask, AND leave-in conditioner. So not only will you have shiny locks but more money in your wallet too!

DIY Dry Shampoo
I remember when dry shampoo first came out; I wanted so badly to love it. There were just two problems. One, they were crazy expensive for what they really were (cornstarch, talc, or some other absorbent). And two, as a brunette, most of them just left my hair white and powdery. That’s what makes this recipe so amazing. There is both a light-haired and dark-haired version, and they each just cost pennies to make.

Dry Shampoo Spray
If a powdered dry shampoo isn’t your thing, but you still want to reap all of the benefits of a dry shampoo, then you gotta check this recipe out. Again, this one only costs a fraction of the stuff at Ulta. Hooray!

DIY All-Natural Hair Serum
Some girls are hairspray girls. Others are mousse girls. I am a hair serum girl through and through, and I know a good hair serum when I see it. This one uses castor oil because it actually coats the hair shaft, reducing the appearance of split ends.
DIY Sea Salt Texturizing Spray
Sea Salt Spray is so easy to make; it’s basically just salt water. So why on earth would you ever buy it from a store? Plus, what’s makes doing it yourself even better is that you can scent it however you want with essential oils. Awesome!
Also, completely random aside, but be sure to check out some of Ali’s food recipes on her blog. I have used her sangria recipe for years, and it is literally the best sangria ever! Just putting that out there…

DIY Natural Hair Gel
A simple recipe using just five ingredients (and one of them is optional). This hair gel is guaranteed to give a soft hold while also combatting frizz (and bad hair days in general).

DIY Natural Spray Gel
If sticking your fingers in some goop is unappealing to you, you can always make gel in spray form! Just be aware this formula has a very strong hold, so you will want to use a light hand and only spritz a couple of times.

All-Natural DIY Hair Pomade
Do you remember how I said that I was a hair serum girl? Well, my husband is a hair pomade man. No doubt! He is a connoisseur of the stuff, and this recipe works great! You only need a pea-sized amount to style a short cut. So a canister will last a very long time, once again saving you lots of money!
A Word About Curated Posts
The above is a curated post. Some people call them round-ups, but I like the phrase “curated post” a lot better because I have spent hours putting each of these lists together. I have been a Pinterest junkie for years, and I am always looking for the newest or best or most interesting DIY project out there. Finding these items, testing them, and then using them on a daily basis is so much fun AND, I have discovered, helps save me money.
