Thank you ladies for the help..I have thought of making my own but wasn't sure what to budget is about $6-10 for a product. I do have coconut oil, glycerin and honey plus some other oils sitting in my house so I will certainly try my own. Thanks again.

Be aware not all oils will penetrate the hair, anything polyunsaturated will likely not. Coconut can if left long enough, probably also olive and avocado, you might not get much penetration tho being low porosity. There is a series of excellent articles by 'curl chemist' Tonya McKay where she explains the function of different ingredients.
