Introduction

Achieving great-looking hair is not difficult, nor does it need to be expensive. With a few common kitchen ingredients and oils, herbs, and flowers, you can create a variety of treatments that your hair will respond to quickly. The time you invest in creating these easy formulas will be rewarded with healthier, more luxuriant hair.

You can customize the basic herbal shampoo to address your particular hair color, texture, and other individual needs. Then apply an herbal hair conditioner and rinse formulas after the shampoo to help keep your hair healthy from the roots to the ends. You may then opt to try one or more scalp treatments, which are designed to keep the scalp and new hair growth healthy. Some of the treatments are formulated to address particular hair and scalp problems, such as controlling dandruff and encouraging hair growth. The final section offers instructions for herbal hair coloring, a fun area to explore if you are an adventurous do-it-yourselfer.

A Guide to Purchasing Natural Ingredients

Learning to make your own hair-care products can save you a bundle of money, but don’t skimp on the quality of the ingredients in your money-saving efforts. Using the best quality ingredients is a good practice. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to assess the quality of natural products such as herbs; price may not be a reliable indicator of quality.

Many of the preparations in this booklet are best when made with fresh herbs, but fresh herbs are not always easy to obtain. You can substitute dried herbs for fresh and vice versa, if herbs are not available in the preferred form: One part dried is roughly equal to two parts fresh. Growing your own herbs will ensure the best quality, but buying them from local gardeners and farmers or from local herb shops that buy from local growers is a good alternative. Of course, some of the herbs used in these recipes may not grow in your locale and you will have to purchase imported supplies
