7 Must Have Tools for Creating DIY Hair Recipes

There’s nothing like whipping up your very own hair creations. The best part is that you know beyond all doubt what it is that’s inside of your hair products. No need to decipher ingredient labels and your God given creativity levels are able to soar.

Being able to create your own DIY hair recipes will help you to get closer to the way God intended for us to live…off of nature. It can be fun too but creating your hair recipes will be challenging unless you have the necessary tools and accessories. That’s why I created this handy dandy list of must have tools for creating innumerable DIY recipes for your hair. You’re welcome!

tools for diy hair recipesPyrex Measuring Cup – Of course, you can use any measuring cup but I love Pyrex because of it’s strength and versatility. You can literally transfer mixtures from hot to cold and the cup will not break or absorb any colors or scents.

Food Processor – I use a Ninja and it’s great. I got it free when I purchased the blender years back but it’s very affordable (see below). I no longer have the blender since upgrading to the NutriNinja but the food processor works so well at blending up ingredients for hair recipes. This device is only used for my DIY hair recipes. Any food based recipes get whipped up in the NutriNinja.

Measuring Spoons – Many DIY hair recipes call for measurements in increments of teaspoons or tablespoons. You’ll need a set containing a variety of measuring amounts.

Cheesecloth – for straining out herbs and other particles that may be a part of your mixture. This is especially helpful when creating herbal hair care recipes.

Mason Jars – I love mason jars for storing DIY hair recipes because they are super durable, can be prettied up to present your creations as gifts and are usually the cheapest jars on the market. 8 ounces is pretty standard but you can obviously use larger jars.

Spatulas – Just like when you make a cake and don’t want to leave any batter behind, you certainly don’t want to leave any of your wonderful hair creations behind! Obtain spatulas in various sizes. They can be used to scoop out product in large or small amounts but also to help with mixing and stirring.

Spray Bottles – If you’re going to create a daily spray moisturizer, strengthening spritz or rinse, spray bottles are a necessity. For that reason, these are not always needed but are still good for keeping on hand should you decide to experiment beyond hair masks and whipped hair butter.

There you have it. 7 must have accessories and tools for creating all of your DIY hair recipes.
