    Issues You Can Treat with Homemade Hair Care




    Sometimes it’s not enough that we have oily or dry hair; we might also suffer from dandruff or the harsh effects of hair dyes and styling products. An accumulation of issues with our hair may make us feel desperate and confused since we don’t know where to begin or what to treat first. Commercial hair care products promise us so much yet leave us feeling frustrated with little results and that’s why homemade shampoo, conditioners or masks are so valuable. You can use a variety of healthful ingredients and adjust or alternate them to meet the demands of your hair troubles. Let’s see what homemade hair care can do for several issues you may be struggling with.

    Anti-dandruff Hair Care

    • Apple Cider Vinegar (1 cup)

    • Water (1 cup)

    Directions:


    Boil water and steep rosemary until cooled. Strain infused water, add all ingredients into a container and shake well. Wash your hair twice a week with your desired quantity, then rinse well. Gently towel dry.
