I bought a yucca root from whole foods.....I chopped and grinded it in a blender with some bottled water. I washed my hair with it twice with it this week. really shiny and clean results! the only con I have is that still have bits of yucca pieces in my hair afterwards and I have to brush them out-annoying.......has anyone tried a homemade yucca recipe? how can I improve this??? I really want this to be my new "shampoo".

I like this a lot! I am tempted to give it a try if it wasn't that I really enjoy just using conditioner. I LOVE using things from the earth for beauty. You can also find yucca root at Latino markets if one is near you.
Thanks for this

That's what I did with soapwort root when I was using it. Then just use the liquid to wash--if you put it in a squirt bottle it makes it easier to apply. There are also various thickeners you can use if need be. Generally I used arrowroot powder if I needed it, but you could probably just use corn starch. You can also use other herbs with it, or make a separate herbal rinse. Some of the ones to look into are rosemary, nettle, horsetail, hibiscus, catnip, marshmallow--they all have different properties, so you can mix and match for what you want. A lot of people like the more mucilaginous herbs (slimy) for slip and conditioning, but those didn't work well for me. Catnip also is very popular for split end prevention.

I've gotten my routine down to the bare essentials, finally
Wash: Suave Tropical Coconut
Leave-in: Suave Everlasting Sunshine, detangle with Denman brush
Gel: LAL Sport or Wet Look
Scrunch with flour sack towel, plop 10 minutes, air dry
Refresh with either plain water or Suave/water mix
