I have tried “No ‘Poo” – which is using baking soda and vinegar for shampoo and conditioner. It was awful! It does seem to work for some people, but not for me! But I just don’t like unnecessary chemicals, and shampoo is expensive!!
So I tried all sorts of combinations of Dr. Bronners, honey, tea tree oil, apple cider vinegar, you name it! Its been kind of miserable, to tell you the truth. And when I resorted to regular shampoo, my face was dry and itchy.
But I think I found something!! It works great on both my husband and myself. It suds up and feels clean, but moisturizes my dry scalp at the same time – which I attribute to the jojoba oil and aloe vera gel in the mixture. I love it! Let me know if you try it – click here to see the shampoo recipe. I made it, loved it, then couldn’t find the recipe on the internet, but Finally found it!. Hopefully I’ll have it for good now! 🙂 I mix it up and put it in sports water bottles. It is quite watery, but it doesn’t take much!!
And I have been using this next recipe for conditioner! It makes my hair brush-able and soft, even if it isn’t quite like real conditioner. I measured quite loosely, so no need to be exact. I just use the “Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse” part of the recipe – you need to scroll down a bit to see it, Click here to see the conditioner recipe.
