Hair is the first thing people see and is considered your crown. Every month we invest so much in our hair but sometimes those same exact results can be achieved easily at home. Presenting you some simple Diys for your hair care that will save you thousands of bucks that you spend yearly on those brands.
Whether dealing with greasy hair, frizz or you want darker locks we have an unbelievable treatment.
Instant dry shampoo
If you don’t have time to wash your hair or are caring for someone who is unable to take a shower or bath, a dry shampoo will suffice.
These simple diys for your hair care will save your hair from buildups.
1. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon cornflour powder into the hair.
2. Massage it section by section, combing out any knots.
3. Brush well to remove all powder, often pausing to shake off the brush.
4. The powder absorbs debris and oil, leaving hair clean and lustrous.
Two-ingredient revitalising conditioner
COnditioners can weigh down your hair. Give drab hair new life with this luscious conditioner, made with only two ingredients.
- Take half a ripe avocado, scoop out the fruit and mash until smooth
- Slowly stir in 60ml coconut milk; the mixture should look like a thick gel, so add more milk as needed
- Work all of the mixtures into your hair, then comb smooth
- Wait 10–15 minutes before rinsing thoroughly
- Your hair should feel thicker and look richer. For an extra treat, use the other half of the avocado to whip up a little guacamole.
Gloss up with vinegar
Your hair has lost its lustre, so you’ve switched shampoos, which helped for a while, but now your hair looks dull again. It’s due to a build-up of the residue left by shampoo and other products. Vinegar will safely remove the residue and restore your hair’s naturally acidic pH balance, leaving it shinier, smoother and easier to manage.
- Just mix 2–3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar with 1–2 cups (250–500ml) water in a jar
- Then shampoo your hair as usual and rinse
- Shake the vinegar solution and use it as a final rinse. Any vinegar smell will disappear as soon as your hair dries.
A hair mousse alternative
You’ve shaken the can of mousse and turned it upside down, but not a drop comes out. Don’t panic.
Try a little shaving cream mixed with a drop of surgical spirit to keep your hair in place and moisturise it at the same time.
- Chop up 1 lemon and add it to a saucepan filled with 1 cup (500ml) water
- Boil until the water has reduced by half
- Cool, strain and pour into a spray bottle; add 2 tablespoons of surgical spirit.
- Stored in the fridge, the spray should keep for three to four weeks; unrefrigerated, it will last for two weeks.

Tame hairline frizz
The hardest place to control frizz is in the area around your hairline. To deal with irritating stray frizz and wisps, saturate an old toothbrush with hairspray and brush them back where they belong. Hold in place with your fingers until the hairspray dries.
A sage decision for brunettes
Applied to brown or black hair, sage will darken grey hairs.
- Put 1 tablespoon of dried sage into a bowl and pour 2 cups (500ml) of boiling water over it
- Let the mixture steep for 3 hours or overnight before straining it into a bottle or jar
- Shampoo your hair as usual, rinse and then apply the sage tea to grey hairs one area at a time, dabbing it on with a cotton wool ball or a wad of cheesecloth
- Air-dry or use a hair dryer, but do not rinse. You will probably need to repeat the process once a week until you get the colour you want.
Shelve the dye for darker locks
Leave chemical dyes on the shelf and colour your dark hair the way the ancients did: with rosemary.
- Pour 2 cups (500ml) boiling water over 2 tablespoons of freshly chopped rosemary leaves
- Allow it to stand until cold, then bottle it and rinse the hair after washing. It’s a natural solution for greys.
These diys for your hair care ingredients are natural and can be easily found at home so you don’t have to make a quick run to the mart. Do try them and let us know which one worked for you.
