making own hair product...

Okay, so I want to make my own hair products.. (deep conditioner) but I have a few questions

What do you put into it to preserve it?

Where can you buy unrefined shea butter? (not online please)

I want to use banana.. but whenever I mash it, (and i mash it a lot) I get these little chunks of it that are hard to rinse out, gross! How do I get it so it's all mashed, and not chunky

Besides coconut milk, honey, shea butter, olive oil, and bananna, what are some good moisturizers, and is this combo okay?

There's a DT recipe in the "reader tips" section of this website that you may find helpful. I think it included honey, banana, avocado, and mayonnaise.

AS far as preservatives... sorry, no ideas. But maybe you could try putting the banana (or the whole mixture, for that matter) in a food processor or blender to get it pureed to a smoother consistency.

I would keep it in the fridge. The banana could get schivatz.

You could try pushing the banana through a sieve as you mash it perhaps? don't know if that will work or not but may be worth a try.

Whole Foods has it, if there's one near you. Also a BSS may have it.

Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.

I've seen recipes that call for a capsule of Vit E as a mild preservative, or a couple drops tea tree oil, an anti-bacterial.
