When my hair conditioner ran out before I found another clearance deal, I decided to see if I could make my own. After a few rounds of experimenting, I ended up with a conditioner that I like better than any commercial conditioner that I’ve ever tried. It takes me less than five minutes to make; costs very little to put together; and leaves even my oldest daughter’s crazy-long locks easy to brush. I also love that I know exactly what’s in it (not much) and that I can use essential oils to customize it to my hair’s needs.

Want to try my recipe for yourself? Here’s my latest formula (recently tweaked for longer shelf life):

Homemade Hair Conditioner Recipe

Hair Conditioner Supplies

What You’ll Need:

A carrier oil (jojoba, coconut, sweet almond, etc.)
Guar gum (a natural thickener commonly used in cosmetics and foods)
Essential oils (see chart below for suggestions)
1 cup distilled water
A bottle (you can reuse empty conditioner bottles)
A funnel

Essential Oils for Healthy Hair

Add essential oils to your hair conditioner to create your own custom fragrance and improve the health of your hair. Here are essential oils that are recommended for various hair conditions. Pick one oil, or mix several together to create a blend that’s all your own.

Dry/Brittle Hair

Oily Hair


Hair Regrowth
Ylang-Ylang Ylang-Ylang Ylang-Ylang Ylang-Ylang
Sandalwood Citrus (Orange, grapefruit, lemon) Tea Tree Rosemary
Rosemary Tea Tree Bay Lemon Balm
Geranium Bay Lavender Bay
Bay Caraway

As you can see, Ylang-Ylang makes the list for every hair condition. That’s because it has a balancing effect on hair. So if you’re trying to make a conditioner that will work for everyone in your family, it would be a good oil to use.

And if you have school-age kids, you might want to think about adding tea tree oil to your oil blend. It’s good for preventing lice.

*I use the NOW brand of essential oils. They’re 100% pure, but less expensive than other 100% pure options. I usually order my oils through Amazon. They’re cheaper than I can get them locally, and they have a better selection.

What You Do:

Add Guar Gum

Step 1: Measure 1-1/4 tsp of Guar gum into an empty squeeze bottle.

Add Carrier Oil

Step 2: Add 3/4 tsp carrier oil (I used jojoba in this example.)

Add Essential Oil

Step 3: Then, add several drops of essential oil (I used orange, tea tree and rosemary this time). I recommend no more than 6 drops per ounce. That’ll give you a 1% dilution rate, which essential oil experts generally regard as safe for kids.

Tip: Some essential oil bottles have built-in droppers, others don’t. I use pipettes to measure out my oils that don’t have droppers. That’s what I used in the photo.

Add Distilled Water

Step 4: Add the distilled water. Then, stir/shake until the mixture is smooth and clump-free, and your conditioner is ready to use! If you have clumps of guar gum sitting at the bottom of the bottle. Use the back of a wooden spoon to mix it in.


  • One of the benefits of making your own products is that you can customize them to meet your needs. If after making a batch you find that you want a conditioner with more or less oil, simply tweak the recipe until you hit the right amount for you. Want a thicker consistency? Just bump up the amount of Guar gum.
  • This hair conditioner can also be used as a hair masque. Just apply it to your hair; allow it to sit for 30-60 minutes; then, wash your hair as usual
  • Clear condiment squeeze bottles work beautifully as conditioner bottles
  • The carrier oil and essential oil used in this recipe can also be used to make lotion bars, bug repellent bars and lip balm

Calculating the Cost:

Here’s a look at what it costs me to make a batch of hair conditioner:

Using jojoba, peppermint oil and Guar gum, it costs me $.60.

Using coconut oil, lavender oil and Guar gum, it costs me $.94

Compare that to the $7.99 that most of the natural brands sell for, and that’s a great deal. When I was buying conditioner, I always tried to spend $3 or less for a bottle. This blows that right out of the water.

Ways to Extend the Shelf Life of Your Homemade Hair Conditioner:

This hair conditioner recipe is preservative-free, so it will eventually break down and go bad. I’ve made changes to the recipe since I first posted it to ensure that you get maximum shelf life out of each batch, but there are a few things that you can do to make it last even longer. Here are my recommendations:

  • Keep the lid closed between uses
  • Avoid storing the bottle in direct sunlight
  • Avoid temperature fluctuations
  • Do not use tap water in place of the distilled water (It usually contains chlorine, fluorine, and other chemicals, which will cause the conditioner to go watery)
  • Right-size the recipe for your family. This recipe is a good size for my family of four, but it might be too much or too little for your family. I’ve halved, quartered and doubled this recipe with good results, so just tweak it to your needs
  • To keep your conditioner from going watery or bad before you’ve used it all, make a two week’s supply at a time

Essential Oils Book

Essential oils can be used to make all sorts of products, but they need to be used properly. Invest in a good essential oil book, so you can educate yourself on how to use them safely. This is the one that I have: The Complete A-Z Reference of Essential Oils for Health and Healing. I like that it allows you to look up information by the issue that you want to treat or by the name of an oil. When you look up an oil, it even gives you a list of other oils that it blends well with. This can save you from creating unpleasant scent combinations.

  1. I love this idea! I want to customize your recipe to add honey to it. It would be a great addition because of the acidic ph, anti microbial properties, and natural moisturizing properties. Can you give me an estimate of how much honey you would add to customize this recipe? Thanks!

    • Hi Kimberly,

      I haven’t tested it with honey, but it sounds like a great addition. I would start with a small amount – one teaspoon maybe – and adjust from there until you get a consistency that you’re happy with. Let me know how it goes 🙂

  2. I tried making this today, I think I should have added the guar gum befor I heated the water? Either that or added less of it. It thickened so much I couldn’t get it in the bottle. I wound up adding aloe (moisturizing) and honey (anti-fungal/anti-bacterial) and I think almost 2 more cups of water to thin it enough. I also added more oil and essential oil to make up for thinning it’d so much. I haven’t tried it yet so I can’t give feedback on how it works for me, but I have great hopes!

      • Hey Jessica,
        When I make it, I add the guar gum before I heat it. When my husband makes it, he adds it after. We seem to get the same results either way. I would recommend giving it another go with just the guar gum, oil, water and essential oil, and come up with a consistency that you’re happy with before adding anything else to the mix. I transfer my conditioner to the bottle when it’s still hot, so it hasn’t fully thickened yet. That makes it easy to pour. Just trying to troubleshoot here: I also pull my conditioner off the stove as soon as it starts to boil. Letting it go longer may be the cause of it being too thick. Let me know how it goes for you 🙂

        • Did I miss something in the directions? I didn’t see anything about heating this recipe until the comments. Is this supposed to be cooked?

          • Nope, you didn’t miss anything. In the original recipe, I heated the ingredients. I’ve since figured out that the conditioner lasts longer when you don’t heat it.

  3. i made this today and this didn’t detangle my hair. did you have a different experience? or is it different once the hair is dry?

  4. The xanthan gum did not dissolve completely, there were still clumps of it in the water after boiling. Is that okay?

    • Hi, Ana.

      It should be fine to use. Since you had trouble getting the gum to dissolve, I would recommend adding it to cold water next time you make a batch, and then stirring the entire time.

  5. I made this today for the first time and was impressed by how easy it was and how quickly I could comb through my daughters (curly) hair after her bath! I used xanthan gum because gaur gum was not readily available and i did end up with lumps, but mostly because I forgot to keep stirring it. i just put the whole mixture through a sieve before I added the oil and EO. I used coconut oil and grapefruit essential oil for a nice citrus scent. thanks so much for the recipe! I look forward to girls with much more manageable hair (since we have been foregoing conditioner altogether).

  6. Hi Erin!

    I was wondering what oz your squeeze bottle is?

    I can’t wait to try this recipe since I have psoriasis on my scalp and I hear that home remedies such as this are just as good or better than the harsh prescriptions that doctors can prescribe.

  7. After a couple days the consistency changed to thin liquid and wasn’t thick at all. Is that normal? It also didn’t work as well once the consistency changed. I used lemon essential oil..

    • I’ve had mine go liquid a few times. Fortunately, I can tell you why that happens and how to fix it 🙂 First the nerdy why: The ions in tap water are what cause the conditioner to break down over time and go liquidy. If you want to avoid this problem, just switch to distilled water. Another option, is to make smaller batches, so you’re using them up faster. Hope this helps.

  8. Hi Erin,

    I was just wondering why you boiled this recipe. I was thinking of just placing all the ingredients in a blender instead. Do you think that’d work?

    • Hi Melinda, my thought behind boiling is that it would sterilize the water to extend the shelf life of the conditioner. However, when my husband makes it, he doesn’t bother with the boiling anymore. I don’t see why making it in the blender wouldn’t work. I say give it a shot 🙂

  9. I made this today and my hair feels clean and soft. I used xantham gum and it has all dissolved. I did give the bottle a good shake when I first poured the conditioner in. I also used olbas oil so it’s really refreshing! I’m a brunette so I’m going to try adding sage to my next batch.
    Thank you!!

    • Hi Erika,

      I don’t have curly hair, but I use as much conditioner now as I did when I was using store-bought. Hope this helps.

  10. Hello there, when I made my conditioner it went rancid on me, with an off smell and it separated into clear liquid on the bottom with brown particles floating on top. Do you have any idea? Thanks!

    • Hey guys, I’m running a few experiments now to see if I can’t improve on the original recipe. I think a small tweak will eliminate the separation problem. Stay tuned for an update 🙂

  11. Hi! I used a very a recipe very similar to this one, but added shea butter and it left me hair very soft BUT very oily. Any suggestions? Do you think it was the Shea?

    • Hi Amanda,

      I do think the shea butter is to blame. It’s a pretty heavy oil, and in its cooled form, it’s a solid, so I think it’s going to tend to kind of sit on your hair. I’d give it another go with a different oil.

  12. I used physillium husks to thincken because i could not find guar gum. I also used agar agar but it didn’t thicken much. The husks worked brilliantly. I also used almond oil because it is one of the most deeper conditioning oils. Castor would be better but more expensive. I put eucalyptus oil and rose and it smells amazing 🙂

  13. Do you have to have the Guar Gum to make this? I know it won’t be thick. Is there something else that can be use to thicken it such as arrow root powder or cornstarch? I like the idea of making my own conditioner for economic reasons and also because i know what is in it. We have 7 heads of hair in this household and all a little bit different.

    • Hi Alysia,

      The guar gum does a nice job of thickening the ingredients, but you can certainly use a different thickening agents. Some of my readers have made it with arrow root powder, and I’ve been meaning to try a batch with corn starch. I don’t see any reason it wouldn’t work.

      • So, I couldn’t find guar gum at any of my local stores, and used xantham gum instead … boy was that an adventure! It definitely didn’t mix smoothly, ended up creating what looked like record sized amoebas. But, most of the batch actually thickened up nicely, so I broke out a strainer, poured it through, and ended up with a nice little bottle of conditioner. It worked nicely on my hair this morning (I have a thick mop that’s permed so it’s hard to keep moisturized without using a ton of goop) still feels great. Now I’m just waiting to see how it works on the hubby 🙂

      • If you don’t use organic cornstarch, it will be genetically modified with pesticides. tapioca starch is another alternative but suspect you’d have to use more to get the thickening result vs guar or xanthum gum.

  14. After updating the recipe, I don’t see an amount of water listed. How much water should be used with the other ingredient amounts listed?

  15. Your recipe sounds great and I can’t wait to try it! Minnesota winters are dry and I’m trying to find a recipe where I can leave it in my hair to keep it moisturized as well an cut down on the static electricity and frizziness, think it would work?

    • Maybe using avocado oil in the conditioner would help. Or making a small spritz bottle of distilled water, 1 or 2 tsp of jojoba, or grapeseed oil, spray very lightly on ends as soon as you get out of the shower? I do this sometimes – but I wash my hair almost every day.

  16. I’m anxious to try this. I have all the ingredients on hand except guar gum. If I use xanthum gum or corn starch do I need to heat those or can I just shake it too?

    • Hi Ann,

      If you use xanthum gum, I think you’d be fine to follow the recipe as is. Cornstarch, however, would probably need to be heated. I haven’t made a batch with cornstarch yet, but from my experience with making pudding, cornstarch requires heat and a good bit of time to thicken. Hope that helps.

    • I make this using xanthan gum, but use a whisk because shaking wasn’t working for me. I don’t heat my batches and it works well. The hardest part has been finding EO blends to cover the vinegar smell, which has actually been my husband’s only problem.

    • Hey, Jaqueline. If you use tap water, it will go watery and bad after a while. I now use distilled water in mine, which slows the process down. You could either try that, or go to making a smaller batch (one that you’re able to use before the conditioner breaks down). Hope that gives you some ideas to try.

  17. Thanks for the post! I just finished puting this together. I used peppermint and jojoba oil. Can’t wait to try it out! I put it in a mason jar with a pump so we’ll see how that goes. I think I may put in a bottle (like you have posted here) the next time though.

    • HI Chrissy,
      I have found the hand soap pump bottles work well. They often go on sale for $.99 and the pumps are actually of quality! I washed the soap out of the bottle and the pump with hot water. This works well with my castor oil and grape oil hand moisturizer.

  18. If I used coconut oil as a carrier, do you think coconut water would work instead of distilled water (with no essential oils added)? Or would that be overload? I’ve heard that coconut water is very good for you, and it would certainly smell good. 😀

  19. So, I’m excited about a “real” homemade conditiner that has some thickness to it….I haven’t tried yet. My question is this can I use this in a fabric softener recipe in place of the storebought conditioner that all the recipes call for??!!

  20. Hi,
    I made this recipe and it has been great! I used distilled water and xanthan gum and sterilized my bottle. However, my conditioner became VERY stinky after 9 days. I did a half recipe from the one you listed. What has your experience been with the conditioner going bad? Do you have any tricks for longer shelf life? Thanks!

    • Hi Hannah,
      I’ve been meaning to stick a bottle in the fridge to see if refrigerating it might help to extend the shelf life, but I keep forgetting to do it. I just make a small batch, so we use it before it has a chance to go bad. It’s super easy to make, so I don’t mind making a batch every week or so.

  21. I was wondering your thoughts on a tiny bit of Vitamin E oil as a bit of a preservative to keep the shelf life a little longer?

    Recipe looks great! I have permed hair and am looking to use as little processed product for it as possible (there’s propane in my store-bought mousse!) Can’t wait to go home and whip up a small batch!

    • I think Vitamin E would be a great addition. If you find that it extends the shelf life, I’d love to hear about it.

    • Sorry, I meant to say that this solution was for those who choose to use xanthan gum instead of guar gum.

      • adding the guar to oil and then mixing it into the other ingredients last does help keep it from clumping. I add guar to my shampoo, leave ins and conditioners to add additional slip. The guar gives more slip than xanthum gum I’ve tried both. The slip makes for easier combing. You can get guar easily online. This sort of guar gum does not condition hair, it just makes it easier to comb through. If you want a conditioning quar, you need to buy cationic guar which is guar with a positive ion charge addet to it. The guar in the picture is not cationic guar. The pictured, regular guar Will make a great detangler though. I am mixed black puerto rican and indian with thick curly long hair. If my product doesn’t have guar in it i will add regular guar like the one pictured so that my hair won’t tangle and be easy to comb through. A little goes a long way, a teaspoon per 8-10 ounces is plenty.

  22. I’ve been looking for a formula, can’t wait to try it-just need the guar gum. I think using peppermint will add some antispetic properties, too and help shelf life. Thanks!!

  23. I have Lavender EO on hand, so plan to use that in this recipe. I also have almond oil for the carrier oil. What I was wondering is whether I can use a homemade coconut milk instead of the distilled water for both the fragrance and the softening properties for my thin, fine hair? Thanks!

    • Hi Becky,

      I think it’s certainly worth a try. I can’t see any reason that it wouldn’t. It may shorten the shelf life, but you could just make smaller batches, if that’s the case.

  24. Oh, forgot to mention that I plan to try the corn starch option, since that is what I already have on hand.

  25. Good morning, Im wondering if I added a little vitamin E oil or maybe a little tea tree oil to the mix….would that preserve it so it might last longer and not go rancid so soon? What are your thoughts on this?

    • I think it’s definitely worth a shot. Tea tree oil is anti-bacterial and a mold inhibitor, so I think it would be a great addition.

  26. Thanks for this. The perfumes used in a lot of commercial toiletries set off my allergies, and the hypo-allergenic stuff is hellishly expensive.

    I just used regular olive oil in mine, which seems to work fine. I found another recipe somewhere for extracting rosemary oil (there’s tonnes of it growing in my garden and it’s one of the few fragrances that doesn’t make me sneeze), so I might give that a go next time.

    • Hi Amybeth, I suspect you would end up with something more like a conditioning mask. It would probably be a lot harder to wash out than the conditioner made with the gum, but who knows. It might be worth a try 🙂

  27. I just tried this. Waiting on my hair to dry. I didn’t cook the water. I made some green tea in the water by microwaving. I used one teaspoon of sweet almond oil and 1/2 teaspoon of vitamin e oil. My hair gets really dry. It’s almost “butt length” so I take extra care to hydrate. I use guar gum. I put it in the hot tea yet I still had clumps. Before I tried mixing it with cold water and it was one big massive clump. What could I do different? I used peppermint and rosemary essential oil. This evidently along with the vitamin e is a preservative. I didn’t know it. I just love how it feels. Waiting on my hair to dry to see if it’s oily then I’ll adjust the recipe accordingly. My hair combed through just fine. I hope it has a longer shelf life. I just made some diy coconut milk conditioner and it went bad sooooo quick. I was gonna use the bottle today but I couldn’t. I made coconut cheese in the bottle. It spewed all over me from the pressure when I opened it. That has a puke factor out of this world. I hope this works. Thanks for the recipe.

      • Yay! Glad to hear it worked well for you. You mentioned having clumps in the finished product. I suspect they would go away if you were to stir longer. You could probably also use an immersion blender to break them up.

  28. has anyone tried to use Gelatin instead of the Guar or Xantham gums? any thought on the benefits (or lack thereof) with using gelatin?
    I have been using herbal rinses with white or ACV instead of shampooing on a daily basis. I love the result. My daughters won’t touch the stuff so this could be a great alternative
    thanks agian

  29. I’ve tried this recipe and do like it. I had to make some tweaks as we’ll I tried vitiam e but what do I add so my hairs not staticy

    • Let me ponder that a bit. My first thought would be to up the oil content just a bit in the winter to add weight.

  30. Hi Erin –

    I’ve been using this conditioner for a few months now and have been really happy with it. However, I’m 31 weeks pregnant, and my hair is considerably drier than normal. I’m going to use a heavier oil in my next batch, but I was also wondering – should I be applying this in the shower (and rinsing it out) or is it meant to be used as a leave-in conditioner?


    • Hi Kate,

      Glad to hear it’s working well for you. I use it in the shower, but you could easily turn it into a leave-in conditioner. You can turn a store-bought conditioner into a leave-in conditioner by mixing one part conditioner to four parts water, so I’d just experiment a bit until you find a conditioner to water ratio that you’re happy with. I suspect you won’t have to add quite as much water as you would with a store-bought conditioner, but I haven’t tried it yet.

  31. I love this. Only thing that Ive found is I need to mix all the ingredients & add the guar gum VERY SLOWLY while stirring or I get a ton of little clumps in it. How do I keep this from happening? It works excellent in my hair despite the tiny clumps.

    • Hi Lynn, glad it’s working well for you. I haven’t had a problem with clumping, but if you happen to have an immersion blender, I’m sure a quick whirl would break them up, or even a quick spin in a blender/food processor.

  32. After reading the comments I think I have a good alternative to the water in the conditioner. The water is what is making the conditioner go bad quickly and curdle, so instead, maybe using natural witch hazel or vinegar? But that being said I’ve made conditioner using every ingredient except water and it works like a charm! I do, however, have very thick curly hair, so that might be it. Anyways, hope this input helps!

    • Where do you get your oil? I looked for Jojoba Oil online it was $13.00 for 4 oz. It was cold pressed, so that might be why.

      • Hi Rhonda,

        I order it online from Puritan’s Pride or GNC. I stock up when they have a sale. Puritan’s Pride often does BOGO deals. Sometimes they even run a promo where you get free oil with any purchase — that’s a FANTASTIC deal. I definitely recommend signing up for their newsletters, so you can keep up with their promotions.

  33. I have been making this for a few months now and I love it. I could not get the guar gum to smooth out so I warm the oil in the microwave and add the guar gum to that, then the essential oil – then the water. Just wanted to thank you for posting this recipe.

  34. i had jotted down your conditioner recipe eons ago and finally just tried it out today so had to find your post again to let you know it worked great. 🙂 i did get some clumps of guar gum but just strained them out and it was still thick like store-bought conditioner. i might also try adding some honey to it or use a mix of oils next time.

    i’m definitely storing it in the fridge because just with the distilled water (& especially any added water-based ingredients like honey or coconut milk) it will spoil in a very short time, long before we actually see the microorganisms. a good rule of thumb is if you wouldn’t eat/drink it having left it on the counter the same number of days then don’t put it on your skin/hair either. that isn’t always the case as some things don’t penetrate our skin but with things like coconut milk & water we do have to be careful.

    thanks for a great, easy recipe.

  35. Get yourself a blender or food processor from the second hand store to use for cosmetics only. Perfect blending and a super time saver. I even use a hand mixer to mix my henna (the blades are stainless so no reaction with the henna).

  36. Hi, I tried your conditioner recipe today and used avocado oil and sweet almond oil combined. It was very easy to make. However, I used it after shampooing like I would any store bought one, rinsed my hair well, but it left my hair oily. I didn’t add extra oil, just the amount in your recipe. Do you think it’s the oils I used? Any suggestions would greatly help. Thank you so much!

    • Hi Jade,

      I have two thoughts: one is that the oils may not have gotten mixed in all the way, and could have been sitting on the top, so that you got a bunch the first time you squeezed the bottle. Another thought is that the amount of oil may need to be tweaked to work well with your particular hair type. I don’t think the avocado oil or sweet almond oil that you used would account for it being more oily. I’ve made batches with both. Definitely give it another go; it may just take a few attempts to land on what works best for you.

      • Hi Erin,
        Thanks for your reply. I hate to admit this, but I read the recipe wrong and used 3/4 cup instead of 3/4 tsp carrier oil. I didn’t even realized it initially until I wanted to try the recipe again, and then it dawned on me. I messed that one up, hahaa =D. I ended up using the oily conditioner as an “oil treatment,” leaving in my hair for about 1 hour and then washing it out. It worked nicely =). I’ll try the recipe again, of course with the right measurement this time. Thank you so much!!

        • Oh, good. I’m glad you figured it out. And I’m glad you found a good use for your first batch 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to let me know what happened. I always hate to hear when something didn’t work out for one of my readers, so I’m happy it was just something simple 🙂

  37. Hi! I think I did something wrong my consistency came out fine but it seems to leave my hair so greasy. What step did I miss or mess up on? How do I fix? I don’t want to waste my oils.

    • Hey Kristin,

      I have a couple thoughts. One is that you may just find that you need to use less conditioner than you’re used to. It’s definitely a different formulation than what you’d get from a store-bought conditioner. My other thought is that you may need to customize the recipe a bit to your own needs. As to fixing what you’ve already made, I would recommend making another batch of conditioner base (minus the oils, and mixing the two together. This will halve the amount of oil in the recipe, so you can start figuring out how much works best for you. Hope that helps. I definitely think it’s worth playing with a bit.

  38. I like seeing a list of ingredients that do not include toxic industrial chemicals or industrial degreasers. I am embracing more natural products free of known carcinogens. I chose henna to color my hair when I saw too many grays. Actually it is a mix of herbs to give me a darker brown color. My hubby added vinegar he made from apple cider with a mother of vinegar, coconut oil, essential oil (wintergeen, peppermint, and rosemary) and the result was fantastic. Deep conditioning, awesome color and shine. And my hair feels really silky. I get stopped and complimented on my color. My best friend who had her hair fried at the salon and paid $$$ to get it ruined is an adherent, and my mother no has me do hers each month. Funny I was odd for trying the earthy concoction, now I get requests to show them what I use. Hubby is good sharing his process as he became my defacto colorist. I told him it is a win-win, i get great looking hair and he gets to look at his beautiful wife every day. He does the mixing and applies the henna for me after he trims my locks. My mom and best friend like me applying the mix after my husband showed me the process, but they insist hubby wields the shears, not me. Hubby prefers that, the hair trims/shaping take less time and aren’t messy. And frankly I prefer hubby handles the shears, he ha hundreds of haircuts unde his belt between mine, the children, and friends he given haircuts to. Natural ingredients are the only way to go if you want the best results. Box and salon color looks too fake for me. Like a cheap plastic wig, gross.

  39. To make it last even longer you can add a few drops of grapefruit seeds extract. It’s a natural conservative 🙂

  40. I was so excited to try this:-) I used almond oil and peppermint essential oil. It smells so nice. Unfortunately it just isn’t right for my hair. After a day or so it starts looking flat and kind of oily (just not clean):-( I so wanted this to work. But everybody’s hair type is different. So I guess I’ll go back to my vinegar rinse which so far is ok for me. Because, like I said everybody’s hair is different, you don’t know till you try it. So in a nut shell it’s a good recipe just not for me :-/
