We all aim for healthy, beautiful hair. However, getting professional hair treatment and buying tons of hair products to achieve this type of hair undoubtedly adds up.

These treatments and hair products can also damage your hair with harsh chemicals, ultimately harming your hair more than helping it. Thankfully, there are a plethora of DIY hair treatments that will save you money and help you avoid the harmful chemicals so often found in hair products.

Here are seven of them you should try and why:
