Mayonnaise makes a very good hair conditioner at an affordable price. For shiny, silky hair, rinse with vinegar. Don't worry, the smell disappears! To strip conditioner build-up off hair, use Dawn dish soap. This works very well.

Both my hair and skin tend to be dry, especially in the winter, and I rely on extra conditioning treatments. Hydrating products are expensive but through trial and error I've come up with the best treatment yet that satisfies both hair and skin and costs next to nothing. All that is needed is product that is already at home and about 5 minutes time to prepare enough spray to last over a month.

What I do is mix 1/4 cup regular hair conditioner with 1 cup of filtered water and 1/8 teaspoon of oil. My favorite oil is Avon Skin So Soft Bath Oil but I've also used regular Baby Oil and light Olive Oil.

Put everything into a pot and bring to a slow boil for only a minute. Remove from heat, let cool completely, and with a funnel pour into a spray bottle(s).

When ready to apply to hair or skin, shake the bottle well and spritz away.

Neither my hair or skin has ever looked so nice. The little bit of oil in the mix gives a nice sheen but isn't greasy.

Use a small empty spray bottle; add 1 tablespoon of hair conditioner and fill the bottle with warm water. Shake well before you use. Spray on wet hair and brush, without tears. I use this on my two girls' hair and it works great!

Make your own leave in conditioner. Use one part conditioner to 10 parts water and mix in a spray bottle.

Avocado and Mayonnaise Mask is a very good conditioner. This deep conditioner works wonders on dry and damaged hair.

Combine mashed avocado with some coconut milk. Mash together until it is smooth and about as thick as shampoo. Comb it through the hair and let sit for 10-15 minutes.

I want to make my own spray on, leave in hair conditioner with sunscreen. I would like to know if anyone has a recipe to make this?

Simply mix a small amount of a chosen conditioner with distilled water and keep in a spray bottle. You may need to experiment for the right balance that you need. Start with a tablespoon of conditioner and add more if needed.

I do the very same... 2/1 water/conditioner ratio. Works great for me.

Hello, I love the idea of making my own leave-in conditioner but I use a concentrated leave-in conditioner which comes in a tube similar to toothpaste; does anyone know how I might be able to thicken up the regular conditioner? Maybe with gelatin? Lisingreece

You can make your own by buying liquid glycerin and mixing a tablespoon or two with distiled water in a spray bottle and using that. Glycerin is pretty cheap and you can get it at most drug stores.

The best conditioner for your hair believe it or not is mayo.

Plain on olive oil. Shampoo afterwards. I tried mayonnaise once and I thought I'd never get it out. I sometimes put a dollup of store bought conditioner in the palm of my hand and add some olive oil. Mix both those together in the palm of your hand and put on your hair. But the oil alone works good too.

There are actually several things in your kitchen that you can use as a conditioning treatment that are safe, natural and easy to use. Mayonaisse is a great hair moisturizer, just shampoo, apply a coating of mayo, let it sit and rinse well. Olive oil, and coconut oil are excellent too, just make sure to rinse really well.
