Homemade NO Shampoo Sleek & Shine #1

I just love making things, especially things that my family can use, that are cost effective, better for our health and environment and that gives us better results for less money. I have tried many variations to "Homemade Shampoo" and have tweaked many of the recipes that I have found. Below is one that I am making for me and my granddaughters. We have been blessed with golden /lite brown hair that is "normal". If your hair has a tendency to be oily you may want to decrease the olive oil by 1/2. That being said, olive oil rinses really well out of your hair and makes your highlights POP out :)

Hair Conditioner - Homemade and Ridiculously Easy!

I have finally done it! I tried one of the most touted about all natural hair conditioners in your pantry! I have been making my own shampoo for over a year now and absolutely love it. I have tried different variations of it and all are good. They are economical, fun to make and they save a BOATLOAD of money!! Since switching to the homemade version of shampoo, not often do I need any conditioner since I use olive oil in my poo, but occasionally over the winter I would break down and use some for extra help in keeping the static out of my hair. I just do not like all of the harmful chemicals in the store bought versions. I prefer to be frugal and NOT put more chemicals in me or on me than I absolutely have to :).
