I have 3c hair and my hair loves the loreal "eversleek" serial and the aubrey organics "honeysuckle rose". They are both for dry hair and cg friendly (no sulfates or silicones). I use the conditioner as a leave in soaking wet hair with a modified "tightly curly method". It keeps my hair soft and moisturized.

I have also tried the aubrey organics honeysuckle rose shampoo/conditioner and i really like this. Especially the conditioner whitch i also use as a leave in. I order mine at Use the couponcode BIF028 and get 5/10 $ off on the first order.

I use bentonite clay mixed with aloe Vera juice as a mud wash. Kinky curly come clean shampoo can even be used everyday but I don't use it everyday. I also used to make Dr.bronner's almond castle soap to infused herbal tea and wash with that.

For a DIY PT reciepe I have my staple in my siggy. For a DIY DC you can use any conditioner and add honey and oil to it.

I tried so hard to go completely DIY - it did awful things to my hair. This is what I have learnt from a lot of DIY (fun) failures :p :

- I don't need a shampoo but I do need a clarifier. To clarify I just add bicarb to my conditioner and it works really well at removing build up. Most effective way is to apply it with a spray bottle to make sure you target your roots.

NOTE: I also use a Henna Hair Wax regularly and it does a really good job of leaving my hair clean but not stripped. My Henna Hair wax is a bargain, it's $5 for 500g tub, I don't know if you can get something like this in the U.S. but maybe this is something you can DIY. I'v found that using this in place of a shampoo (put on after my co-wash) has done wonders for my hair.

- ACV is just not moisturising enough to use on it own as a conditioner for my hair.

- There is no need to buy a DC when so many things in my panty work just as well. Coconut oil alone is better then most of the DC available hear in AUS.

- It really is hard to get away from using a good conditioner if your hair needs mositure - BUT that this is really the only product that I need to buy for my hair. Pre-poo, DC, Sealer, Gell, Clarifier, I can make all of these my self from things in my pantry. Most of them from Coconut oil.

Hope this helped! ;-)

After doing the CG method for years, I slowly am going to almost all DIY. Thanks to this site and some awesome blogs, I now have a list of favorite recipes.

For Shampoo: Baking Soda

I mix one part baking soda and three parts water into a watery paste and pour it all over my hair, gently rubbing it into my scalp and through the curls. With my 3a curls, it takes me about 5-8 minutes to thoroughly cover my hair.

I know, it sounds a little weird, but out of all the ones I have tried, this works best. Just make sure to rinse it out thoroughly. It won't be sudsy, but it cleans like nothing else. Plus it's pretty inexpensive

For a styling agent:

I make my own gel out of flaxseeds (or linseeds). There are some great videos on youtube that show you how to make it. I followed the way that MahoganyCurls showed in her video. It takes about ten minutes to make, and it's easy to customize on the thickness of the gel. I mix a little raw shea butter in mine for an extra hold.

For Conditioner:

This is the one area that I'm still having trouble transitioning to DIY. I'm obsessed with the DevaCurl One Condition, and love what it does to my hair.

My best friend is completely DIY on everything and her favorite recipe is a modified one she found on Pinterest:

2 cups coconut oil
2 teaspoons vitamin E oil
2 teaspoons vegetable glycerine or jojoba oil
1tablespoon of 100% pure aloe vera juice
8 drops lavender essential oil

just put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix with a high power mixer until the concoction is white and smooth, usually mixing it for 3-5 minutes should be fine. She says its a great moisturizing conditioner that she uses as a leave in.

Hope these help! If you want more check out Pinterest, they have some awesome boards of DIY recipes for Hair and Skin.
