I am not very scientific about my choice of homemade conditioner and shampoo. I think that I go by intuition. I am trying to keep my hair as long as possible. It seems to be working for me.
Neem Oil is helpful but has a strong smell. When I use neem oil, I use it in the evening and I would suggest blending up some lemon, kiwi, canatlope to add to your three or four drops of neem oil to make the smell tolerable for significant others.
Avacado is wonderful for your hair.
Did you know that you absorb over one third of what you put on your body. You should really consider looking at the ingredients of shampoos, conditioners, lotions, etc.. that you use. I see that putting good things can help but I see commercial shampoos as a purposeful attack on the hair. I believe hair product maker put ingredients that damage the hair and combine it with ingredients that do help. It creates a continuing need for more hair products. I would just assume experiment around without shampoo then risk getting caught in the cycle of damaging and saving my hair with commercial product. I would say if you are on this journey, start experimenting with what seems right for you.
As far as a formula goes, we each may have different a pH so what might work for me might not work for you. What might work for me might not even work for me on some other day if my pH is different.
If my hair is getting dry, I rinse with apple cider vinegar and it helps me considerably.
If my hair is getting split ends, kiwi and lime seems to be a good solution.
Baking soda is something new for me. I am just now experimenting with it. A tablespoon or so in my hands and worked into my hair as a final rinse seems right for my hair type.
As far as essential oils go, there are hundreds of choices. I will try to come up with a good list of essential oils for hairtypes soon.
