For a while now, we’ve been singing the praises of Ayurveda and DIY when it comes to natural hair care. You may be confused about where to begin, or what you would need to start. Well, now we’re finally here to help!
You’ve may already have seen our extensive herbs and oils guide, or one of our recipe posts. This article is going to be a round of everything a newbie to the world of DIY haircare would need to successfully make those recipes.
You may already have some of these materials, in your kitchen pantry. And even if you do, you may want to get new ones to become strictly for hair care use. It’s completely up to you and your personal needs! Either way, here’s everything you would eventually need when it comes to DIY hair care.
