Homemade No-poo and One-C

My conditioner is completely cooled now. It looks great! It's a medium consistency and pretty smooth looking......I may try next time to make it a little thicker, so I'm thinking to either reduce the water, or use more avg in place of the water (since it's thicker), or adding another TBSP of BTMS...which would work better? TIA.

Wow, what a great thead--I want to try this stuff! Anyone still doing this? The original author mentioned leaving out protein because her hair didn't like protein. If you wanted to add protein, how much do you think would work? I have some silk aminos that really rock my hair and I'd like to make my own version of curly hair solutions silk protein because it does amazing things for my hair, but I'd like to find a way to make it less expensively myself. Any tips?
Yes, is anybody else, still using this recipe?

How is it working for you?

Hi Everyone!

I thought I'd post these here because they've been working wonderfully for me!


Generic No Poo

1/4 of a cup of grape seed oil
2 or more cups (dpending on how thin or thick you like your Co to be) of water
three tablespoons emulsifier (I get mine from the herbarie.com)

what to do:

in a double boiler heat the grape seed oil and emulsifier until the emulsifier has melted.
Heat water in a teakettle until boiling
add boiling water to oil mixture while stirring with a handheld blender or a wooden spoon.
The mixture should turn white immediately.
Let cool, and add preservative (I also get this at the herbarie) and essential oils/fragrance oils.

Generic One-C

Exactly the same process, just substitute oilive oil and vegetable glyercin for the grape seed oil. Since everyone's hair is diff, i think you'll need to play around with the proportions of oil and the veg glycerin here, but I know my hair prefers them in about equal amounts. I like 1/2 cup of olive oil and 1/2 cup glycerin, then add about 2 1/2 cups water.

I hope I'm not leaving anything out! Let me know if you have questions. The nice thing about my recipes is you can adjust them to your own needs. For me, that's no cones, proteins, artificial conditioning agents, ect!

Happy Cooking!
