Poo-Free “Shampoo/Conditioner” (Homemade)

Yes, I have made the plunge into trying to make my own body care products and household cleaners.  I was a little skeptical of some of the recipes wondering how they could possibly work, after all I love my Herbal Essences Shampoos and Conditioners and the thought of giving those up was sad.  BUT after 2 weeks now of using my new “shampoo” and “conditioner” that I made tweaking the recipe I found here, my hair is softer and easier to manage! I love it! So, I thought I would share.  Keep in mind, it is okay to think I’m crazy because well, I thought this was crazy too, but I tried it anyway, I guess because I’m crazy like that. 🙂


• 4 TBS Baking Soda

• 32 oz Water

• 5 drops of Essential Oil (I used lavender)


• 4 TBS Apple Cider Vinegar

• 32 oz Water

• 5-10 drops of Essential Oil (I used lavender)

I put these each in a large spray bottle and I just thoroughly spray in the “shampoo” until my hair is saturated then wash my hair and rinse.  Repeat with the “conditioner”
