Why Your DIY Hair Care Is Not Worth It + An Affordable Hair Recipe

Thanks to the internet, consumers like ourselves are more self-sufficient especially in the beauty category. Most of us now put more effort in reading the labels in our beauty products and know what ingredients to avoid to keep our body free from harsh chemicals. Now, some people are fans of DIY beauty treatments at home so that they know what’s going into their beauty products.

Just like DIY hair care recipes, which are pretty common online and easy to follow, with some only needing 3 ingredients that can be found in most kitchens. However, simple and as natural and organic these can be, sometimes it can be doing more damage to your hair and scalp than provide nourishment as most recipes would say.

According to the School of Natural Skincare, homemade DIY Shampoos might “not effectively cleanse and protect the hair, there are other dangers associated with using them too. For example, the vast majority of DIY recipes are not preserved or stored correctly, which can lead to bacteria, yeast and mold proliferating in them – potentially leading to skin and eye infections, thrush, toxic shock and atopic dermatitis.”

If you think about it, fresh ingredients will go bad if it’s not preserved and stored properly so the shelf-life of DIY hair care is short. Not forgetting, measurements for ingredients tend to vary and this will affect the efficacy of the recipe. Speaking of recipes, majority of DIY skincare are created by non-skincare or beauty professionals as well, hence, their claims and results are questionable too.
