6 Cheap Ways to Help your Hair.

Hair Oils

Oils like Olive or Coconut are often already in your kitchen but if not they are pretty cheap to buy and very economical. The average bottle of Olive Oil is around £3/4 a litre and the average 500ml jar of Coconut Oil being about £8. Not only are they cheap but I find them one of the most effective ways to care for your hair.

Satin Bonnet/ Silk Pillowcase

A bonnet is a cheaper option costing around £2/3 whereas a Silk Pillowcase is about £10-20. I started with a cap then upgraded to a pillowcase. They are beneficial as they are softer than a regular pillowcase and rub on the hair causing friction, frizz and breakage. They also are better for your skin as they don't soak up moisture drying out your skin overnight. They also feel great!


I often get products from ebay. Brands such as Bumble and Bumble or Ouidad on ebay for about 1/5th of the retail price. Its a great way to get good quality products for little money. Alternatively its a great way to try out products you aren't willing to pay full price for unless you know they are good.

Scalp Massage

Massage your scalp for a couple of minutes regularly to increase circulation delivering nutrients to the hair follicles. This will improve the overall condition of your hair and promote growth. I usually do this while co-washing my hair. Scalp health is very important to maintaining healthy hair.

DIY products

The internet is full of recipes for DIY hair products. You can make anything from your own hair masks to your own hair gel! Purchasing quality ingredients and making your own can be much cheaper and better for your hair than ones from drugstores. Be careful though, many of the ingredient swill last a long time and be very economical but it can be easy to go overboard and buy stuff you won't get much use out of. Shop smart and research.


Completely free, just a little time consuming. Its well worth doing your research and reading a few blogs/sites dedicated to curly locks. I know it sounds obvious but a lot of people spend a lot of time figuring out stuff so you don't have to and its all just out there. From watching youtube videos to reading about  I also have a list of some great resources on here already.

Do you have any low-budget ways you maintain your hair?
