Hair  Recipes


1 litre white wine

1 handful rosemary flowers

250g honey

150ml almond oil

Combine the wine, herbs, and honey, then allow to stand for 3 days. Add almond oil and shake mixture well in a sealed jar. To use, simply warm the mixture slightly by standing in half a cup of hot water. After about 10mins, rub the mixture well into your hair and comb it through until dry.



2 egg yolks

1 tablespoon of eau de cologne

juice of 1 lemon

1 litre warm water

Beat egg yolks with eau de cologne, massage into your hair, then lather and wash. Follow with a rinse of lemon juice in 1 litre of warm water.



2 handfuls fresh mint leaves

1 handful fresh rosemary

1 handful fresh chamomile

1 handful fresh soapwort leaves and stems (or 2 tablespoons dried soapwort)

1 tablespoon borax

2 1/2 cups boiling water

Make an infusion of the herbs, strain, store in corked bottles and use between shampoos. Rub into scalp and comb through hair to repair damage and for a healthier scalp.


Take vitamin A and D supplements daily, plus 1 tsp. brewer's yeast.


Mix 3 T vinegar per 1/2 gallon water.



Rinse your hair in herb tea. Chamomile is best for blondes, rosemary for brunettes.


Pound 1-quart balsam fir needles with a pestle to release the oils. Then soak them in cold water overnight. Rub in 2 tablespoons of your balsam rinse after shampooing and rinsing. Rinse well again.



Take a large lemon or two small ones, cut them into small chunks, and put the chunks in a glass or enamel sauce pan. Add two cups of water and bring it to a boil. As soon as it starts to boil, lower the flame and cook until the liquid cooks down to about half the amount - it should take about 15 to 20 minutes. Next, strain out the liquid. While you're doing that, you may want to press down on the lemon chunks to make sure all the juice is out of them. Put the lemon hair spray in a spray container and refrigerate it. If you don't use it often, put one ounce of vodka in it as a preservative.



I'm not quite sure what the proportions in the recipe are but here it is. It should form a very stiff cream that is harder than the stuff you'd use on your hands and body but still pliable.


1 tablespoon of beeswax
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
Rosemary essential oil


Melt the beeswax and add the coconut oil in a slow heating saucepan. Once melted, pour into a jar and shake until cool. The rosemary essential oil is added just as the cream begins to solidify. If the consistency isn't right, it can be re melted and more beeswax or oil can be added. Use in the morning and after washing your hair.  Experiment with how much you need as you don't want your hair slicked back totally. This works wonders on split ends too!

If you do not have rosemary essential oil, you can make a scented olive oil and use some of that instead. If you use about a teaspoon of the scented oil instead, you will need more beeswax.



10 aspirin tablets
3/4 cup warm water

Dissolve the aspirin in water. After shampooing, massage into scalp, leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse.



50g of fresh sage

2 drops sage essential oil

2 drops thyme essential oil

500ml boiling water


Make an infusion by boiling fresh sage leaves in the water for 2 minutes. Leave mixture to infuse for 10 minutes, then add essential oils. Rub the lotion well into your scalp before washing your hair as normal.
