After shampooing with my All Natural Peppermint Shampoo Recipe, I was looking for a good homemade conditioner to leave my hair silky and shiny. Here are three options that I liked and am going to try:
- Apple Cider Vinegar and Water – mix 1 cup ACV to 2 cups water and spray onto hair. Towel dry.
I like this one for the summer because of the chlorine from the pool. The apple cider vinegar helps rid your hair of impurities and gets that chlorine “green” out.

2. Coconut oil: mix 1 teaspoon coconut oil with 1 cup warm water. saturate your hair with the mixture. massage through with your fingers and leave on for 2-3 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly with cool water.
This one is easy to do in the shower and is a great condition to follow your shampooing with.
3. Shea Butter: Melt one cup she butter ina sauce pan. add 1/3 cup olive oil and 50 drops of lavender essencial oil. Pour into a glass jar and allow to cool. Work a small amount into your hair after shampooing and leave on for 2-3 minutes and thn rinse with cool water. For a deep conditioning treatment you can apply a larger amount. comb it through your hair, wrap your hair in a towel for 30 minutes and then rinse it out.
This is another great one for kids hair because the lavender scent will help ward off lice. You know when you get that note home from the school nurse saying their is lice in the school. That’s great time to try this one on the kids heads.Lavender is a natural bug repellent.
