Finding the Right Ingredients for Your DIY Mix

Finding the Right Ingredients for Your DIY Mix

You love making your own hair products because you want to know exactly what you’re putting on your precious tresses. Every head of hair is different, however, so how do you choose the right ingredients for your specific needs?

 

Finding the Right Ingredients for Your DIY Mix

 

  • Moisture: If your hair needs frequent moisture, you’re looking for ingredients that not only add it, but also lock it in. Start with water, which is best stored in a spray bottle or container on its own. Adding water to many DIY mixes greatly reduces the shelf life of the product.
  • Humectants: When creating a mixture for the purpose of drawing in moisture, look for humectants. Aloe vera and glycerin are just two examples. You can use them alone, on top of water-dampened hair, or add them to natural oils and butters.

  • Sealants: Oils and butters mostly help to lock in moisture, not add it to your hair. Fortunately, there are plenty of these ingredients to choose from, and they’re available in lightweight varieties as well as heavier ones suitable for thicker, coarser hair. Coconut, jojoba and olive oil are popular additions; coconut is especially prized as an oil that actually penetrates the hair shaft due to its unique makeup. Shea butter and castor oil are heavier and are often suitable for thicker hair types.
  • Growth: If longer hair is one of your aims, look for essential oils (EOs) that are known for promoting healthy growth. These oils are highly concentrated, so only a few drops should be used, and they must be mixed into a carrier oil like coconut or olive. Rosemary, peppermint and lavender EOs are among the most familiar.

Mixing your own hair concoctions allows you full creativity and control over what goes onto your tresses. By customizing the right ingredients for you, you’re sure to get a one-of-a-king product perfect for your hair.
