DIY hair lotion or milk

hi curlies,

i need your help! I read some good articles about diy your own hair products. i also was searching here (switzerland, online and on iherb) for a good hairmilk/lotion to moisturize my curls on second and third days. If i didn`t do it my curls getting dry and frizzy, can`t stand this.
On iherb i found aloe vera gel (lily of the desert) and i have teatree and rosmary oil, citric acid, sea salt, some rich, good, glycerin-free conditioners and distilled water at home. also i found some stuff on ebay to make my own products, like wheat protein, Behentrimonium methosulfate or xanthan gum. It`s very overhelming, all the stuff and how to combine them for sucess. I really wanna do this for myself, as it sucks to pay a lot of postage for ANY good curls product. It`s just not worth it, because i need a lot for my long hair.

so, if anyone here has the knowledge i would be sooooooo thankfull to hear, how i`ve had to mix these things up.

hair milk has to be glycerin free and only a few drops of oil, my hair gets easily weighted down. I like aloe vera gel and proteins, they gave my always good curl definition.
and how about acv in a hair milk?

so, i did a search for myself on the net and found some helpful stuff and a good shop with natural ingredients and last night i did my own hair milk. this was the result, after i applied before sleep and did the pineapple method with a silk hat.



i only got a problem with the emulsifier, because maybe i did`t heat it enough to get it done its work... i just shake the bottle before use.
