It’s no secret that natural hair products aren’t always the most inexpensive, and if you’re a product junkie like me, you might as well kiss your hair budget goodbye, because I can never say no to a new natural product.

However, I have learned a few ways to save a bit of money on products that I would normally buy- and that’s by making my own! Here are a list of 5 ingredients that you’ll need to start making your own natural hair products.

1. Shea Butter

Shea butter is seen in a lot of natural ingredients, and it is a great for natural hair as a base ingredient. You can mix it up and use it by itself, or add a gel or oil. You can find just about anything on Amazon.com, and shea butter is one of those things!
2. Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe vera gel mixes well with shea butter, and can be used as a moisturizer!

3. Coconut Oil

Almost everybody has coconut oil either in their kitchen or bathroom, because it is definitely a household staple that has so many uses; one of which is being a great oil to moisturize your natural hair.


4. Glycerin

Glycerin is an oil that draws moisture into the hair, and combats dryness. You can find it at your local health foods store, or at your local beauty supply store as well!

5. Water

This is my favorite one of the list because it’s the least expensive. Water can be mixed with all of the products on this list as a base. I personally tend to shy away from tap water if I’m using it as a base for one of my homemade products, and I will use distilled water.

6. Avocados

I always have at least one or two avocados in my fridge because they are so yummy! Not only are they healthy and tasty, they are also good to use on natural hair as a moisturizer and conditioner, when combined with other products.

7. Mayonaise

I’m not a fan of the taste of mayonnaise, but my hair is. It is a great conditioner for natural or relaxed hair.

8. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a well known remedy for many health conditions, and it is also a great hair rinse. It is good to use to cleanse your hair of any product build up.
