Natural Hair Care on a Budget

Do you know about these natural, easy, all-purpose, inexpensive, great for traveling hair products?

People often complain that being eco-friendly isn’t budget friendly.  Here are a few fantastic options for making your hair look great without hurting your wallet.

 Dr. Bronner’s has been promoting healthier cosmetics since the 60s, and is still going strong.  We love Dr. Bronner’s in our home and use it for everything, scrubbing tiles and I have even brushed my teeth with it before.  Smells great, suds like a champ, and provides endless reading material on the label. But the ingredients list is super short and simple – clean as a whistle, sharp as a thistle!

Try this for something easy, all-purpose, made by a great company.

Baking Soda is a great all-purpose ingredient to have around.  I use it as deodorant, and I always mix some in with my shampoo for extra texture and lather – though you can easily use baking soda without the shampoo.  I like the way it feels on my head, the ingredients are super simple and clean, it absorbs pollution and oil, and you can’t beat the price.  Baking soda won’t dry you out, but if you have dry hair, you may want to follow up with a light conditioner and let it sit for a bit.

I love it because it’s easy, all-purpose, inexpensive, great for traveling.

Whole Foods has another all-purpose Castile soap that’s just a bit thicker than Dr. Bronner’s.  For some reason they only list Peppermint on the site, but Lavender is my favorite scent and they have a few other scents to choose from.  Great for traveling because it’s an all-in-one cleaner, nice and simple, and the lavender offers rich conditioning and volume to hair.

Pregnant women – play it on the safe side and steer clear of Lavender and Rosemary for awhile.  There are certain essential oils that can affect hormonal levels, so just play safe for a year or so…you don’t need any hair thickening help right now anyways!

Another great choice if you want something all-purpose, inexpensive, great for traveling that adds shine and moisture.
