DIY Leave in Conditioner {summertime hair refresher}

Leave in treatments are well integrated products in my (summer) hair routine (read why here). I like the simplicity of how you apply them without having to worry to wash anything out. I go through so many different bottles of leave in treatments, that I wanted to find a way to make my own. When thinking about different products to use, I figured that I wanted to make a leave in treatment from things I already had. So I came up with this easy-to-make leave in conditioner made from a sample size conditioner. Enjoy!

For this DIY leave in Conditioner you’ll need:

an empty spray bottle

2 teaspoons of conditioner (I simply used a sample size conditioner my hairstylist gave me because those samples are stacking up in my drawers and I wanted to use them in some kind of way)


Now that you have your materials ready, simply scoop your conditioner into the bottle and fill it up with water, leaving a bit of space to the very top of the bottle. Now tightly screw the bottle top on and give your bottle a good shake so that the conditioner and water can mix together.

… and voilà you’re done!

I usually apply my leave in conditioner whenever my hair gets dry, which mostly happens during the summertime. So whenever I realize my hair is starting to dry out in some places (usually the ends), I spray those areas with the leave in conditioner and brush through the hair with a very dense brush, to evenly distribute the product.

Now that summer is upon us, I like to keep my leave in conditioner right beside me at the pool to keep my hair hydrated throughout the day. During the summer I never worry about using too much of the leave in conditioner and wasting it because it’s a DIY one and therefore very cheap to make, so be generous when using it.

I hope this post helped you out with finding a new (DIY) product you might want to try.

Have fun and enjoy your pool days.
