Angry Cheap all natural conditioners?

I'm going INSANE trying to find a conditioner I can afford. I don't want silicones, sulfates or parabens but everything I find is just SOOO expensive.

I wish I could just use oils but my hairs not good with that. I don't want to use eggs on a daily basis cause it's to messy.

What else can I use? Any recipes or brands that I can buy that are relatively expensive.

AHHH THIS IS DRIVING ME CRAZY, you have no idea how long I spent searching.

Ditto on the shea moisture.. also found at Target: Yes To Cucumbers, though its more expensive (about $8 ) the bottle is pretty big. Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition & Tresemme Naturals, though they are not all natural neither contains silicones or parabens!

Trader Joes Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner is a good one, The TJ Nourish Spa contains parabens I noticed.

Also you can try baby banana food as a base with honey and olive oil mixed in.. jars of baby food are only abt 50cents each!

What is your budget? Then we can make more recommendations..

The Burt's Bees shampoos and conditioners are sulfate and cone free, I believe. And they are very light, in my experience.

Desert Essence coconut conditioner and shampoo. the best. none of that and the sulfate in the shampoo is coconut based so it doesnt strip your hair. i am in love w/ this stuff. everything on desert essence is all organic.

I get a conditioner coconut mask from boots that I co wash with. Its got no sulphates etc in and only costs 1.99 from Boots.
If I don'r use that I just use organic coconut oil to moisturise it before I rinse it with the conditioner.
I sometimes give my hair a final rinse with some apple cider vinegar for extra shine and if my scalp is dry or a chamomile infusion.
Good Luck I hope you find something.

Aubrey Organics, Shea Moisture, Giovanni, Burt's bees will all cost you 8-10 a pop and I still that is pretty expensive for shampoo.

Yes, this is great stuff! (And now you can find it at www.Vitacost.com .)
I like Renpure "my pretty hair is parched" to detangle. I think Walgreens has it right now for buy one at $6.99 and get one free (13.5 oz). (I really wish this would come in a liter size.)
Tresemme Naturals does make for a really nice leave-in, too.

Try Adding Hemp Seed oil to your conditioners in place of using eggs.

Yes to cucumbers
Giovanni smooth as silk or 50:50
Nates Gate Hemp or pomagrante& sunfflower

I add oils & aloe vera juice to many of my conditioners for an extra boost.

Ditto on Nature's Gate and Giovanni.

If you have a TJMaxx near you, you can usually find Nature's Gate and Giovanni there along with others like Sonoma. All Whole Foods stores usually carry these too.

Everyday Shea Moisturizing conditioner. You can buy it at Whole Foods Market or iherb.com, and it's about $10 for a 32 oz (950 mL) bottle.

Alikay Naturals Caribbean Coconut Milk conditioner. It's $12 (without shipping) for an only 8 oz (240 mL) bottle, and I personally think her customer service sucks, but this has been the most moisturizing and softening conditioner I've tried thus far (and I've tried a lot).
