Some homemade recipes for you......

So in light of my previous post, here are a few homemade recipes for you to try...these are the easy ones, I'll post some more complicated ones for people who've got time and energy another time. Enjoy! x

Brown Sugar Scrub

This is sooo easy. Body scrubs sell in shops for like £5 for 300 ml or some nonsense. All you need is some brown sugar and either vegetable oil /sunflower oil/ olive oil.

Ingredients: 1/2 cup Brown Demerera Sugar
                  1/2 cupVegetable Oil of Choice
                  Essential Oil of your choice (optional)

This makes a really good scalp scrub if you mix a little in your palm with your conditioner. I use if if I haven't washed my hair for a while and my scalp feels a little grimey *yuck face*. Just take the scrub on your finger tips and massage into your scalp. It will leave  your scalp lovely and clean!

Apple Cider Vinegar Clarifying Hair Rinse:

  • 1/2 Cup of Apple Cider Vinegar
  •  2 Cups of water
  •  2 teaspoons of honey
  • 3 drops of essential oil of your choice

This is really good for when you have loads of product build up on your hair. The Apple Cider Vinegar counteracts the hard water you often get in cities, and the honey adds some shine to your hair. The essential oil kinda cancels out the vinegary small. The smell doesn't linger for long though. Use this after you wash your hair as a final rinse before drying and adding a leave in conditioner. I use this every time I wash my hair.

Avocado Mayo Deep Conditioner


  • 1 small jar of mayonnaise
  • 1/2 avocado

Peel avocado and get all the lovely green stuff out from around the seed.. Mix all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl with your hands until it's a smooth paste. Smooth into hair being careful to work it to the ends. Use shower cap or plastic wrap . Leave on hair for 1/2 hour. For deeper conditioning wrap a hot, damp towel around your head over the plastic. Wash out using warm/ tepid water. Hot water and mayo is a bit yucky.

Coconut Milk

This is so simple. Use some coconut milk (yup, the one from the can that you use to cook rice and peas), and mix it with your deep conditioner/ normal conditioner. Or use it my itself. Rinse out and it makes your hair nice and soft.

Peace, Love, and Hair Grease Folks xx
