Summer Hair Care on A Budget

With summer in full swing, there are so many activities and exciting experiences you can take part in! Many people will be looking for cost effective alternatives to high priced products in order to keep a healthy relationship with their bank accounts.

 

Hair Care

 

After having to live on a strict budget myself, I have picked up a few tips and a few DIY products that have sliced my haircare budget in half. Below are three recipes for hair masks I use regularly and a few tips on how to save a bit of money this summer season. Many of these masks utilize the same ingredients and these ingredients - especially coconut oil - have other uses as well; making shopping for these products easy on your wallet.

  1. Mix all ingredients into a microwave safe bowl
  2. Transfer mix into a pot and heat up until melted
  • You can choose to either microwave or sit the mixture in a pot of hot water on the stove, like you would when you melt chocolate.
