Hit BBC series Shop Well For Less returned for season 4 on Wednesday, July 24th, with hosts Steph McGovern and Alex Jones back to sort out the nation’s spending habits.

Episode 2 (Wednesday, July 31st) introduced viewers to Melissa and Jon Mountford who have had a hard time curbing their spending. Particularly when it comes to splashing out on their kids’ designer gear and kitting out their kitchen with luxury goods.

And while most viewers were blown away by the Mountford’s spending habits and resistance to swap, there was one trick that impressed all – including Melissa!

Here’s how to make the homemade hair conditioner recipe from Shop Well For Less episode 2. It’s so quick and easy that you’ll never want to spend on hair products again.

Make the homemade hair conditioner

Melissa was initially sceptical of this hair conditioning treatment, but as Steph said: “don’t knock it til you try it!”

And there’s no reason not to as this Shop Well For Less recipe is as simple as making a smoothie.

Just take one banana, honey, olive oil and glycerin – a naturally moisturising product which you can purchase in select supermarkets or online – and whizz them all together in a blender until they are a thick and creamy paste.

Use the paste as you usually would; condition then rinse.

Shop Well For Less: Hair conditioners results

After using the hair conditioner, Melissa was wowed by how easy it all was.

Melissa said “I’m very surprised, so much better than what I could’ve imagined” and commented on how the homemade product had made her locks soft and manageable.

And not only were the results great, but the hair conditioner cost just 60p per treatment, knocking how much Melissa usually pays for hair conditioning treatments in half.

This one was a definite swap and from the reaction of viewers at home, it looks like many are going to be ditching store-bought hair products and heading down the more natural route!
