Budget Friendly: Natural Hair Care

Are you currently unemployed, college student, working as an intern, have a fixed income, a struggling single mom or just plain ole cheap looking for a budget friendly guide that can help you to spend less while taking care of your hair. I have compiled a few budget friendly (cheap) hair care regimen that will match your budget and have you taking better care of your hair at a very low cost, no more excessive spending on hair care items. If you consider yourself among this list or simply just looking for new techniques then read more to learn how to care for your hair on a budget.



To Cleanse the Hair: Black Soap
Black soap is available to be purchased online, from local health stores or beauty supply store. The authentic black soap comes in a huge chunk of brown and cream. I love cutting it in pieces for usage. Before purchasing black soap ensure to read the label to see that you are getting the pure black soap. 

Black soap is meant for deep cleaning. To lower the ph level of the liquid black soap you can add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar or pure aloe Vera.

Black Soap Shampoo
1 cup of filtered water
1 tablespoon of liquid black soap
1/2 tablespoon ACV or 1/4 cup of pure aloe Vera gel
Tea Tree (preservative)
Coconut Oil (optional)

Shave or grate the African Black Soap into smaller pieces
Add warm water to transfer the Black Soap to liquid form
Let it sit until dissolved 
Add Aloe Vera and oils (optional)
Stir mixture and store in a cool, dry place or in the refrigerator 
Shake before each use.



Deep Conditioning
2 tablespoon of pure honey
1/2 cup filtered water
2 tablespoon glycerin
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 egg yolk 

Blend honey, egg yolk, water and glycerine mix until combined. 
Slowly pour in the olive oil until the mixture is smooth. 

Place on wet hair and allow to sit for 30 mins. Rinse hair with cold water. 

Leave-in Conditioner: Shea Butter and Glycerin
Melt Shea Butter by using warm water
1 tbsp glycerin to desired amount melted shea butter 
Blend together until product becomes creamy.
Apply to hair while soaking wet

Shea butter can be used alone or mixed with another ingredient such as oil for leave-in.



Cheap Products for Styling
Do single strand twist or flat twist on wet hair with hair oil (grease) or beeswax. When the hair dries loose to achieve your twist out style with super definition. 

Flaxseed Gel
Buy organic flaxseed and look up videos on YouTube that teaches how to make your own flaxseed gel. 

Aloe Vera Gel
If you live in the Caribbean most time we will have Aloe Vera plant growing in our yard, or if not they are available for purchase as low as a $1 at any local or West Indian, Latino and Mexican grocery store produce aisle, Walmart and Home Depot also carry these products. One stem can last 2-3 months. Refrigerate leftovers for next use. If buying the Aloe Vera gel check if it's pure and contains no alcohol. 

Conditioning Caps
As a substitute collect plastic sacks from the grocery store and use it to create a conditioning cap for when deep treating hair. 

I hope you make use of these budget friendly ideas especially when you are unable to splurge on yourself but still wanna look good and maintain healthy hair.
