Hair Volume

  • 2 Tbsp. conditioner
  • 2 Tbsp. Epsom salts

Mix, then apply to wet hair. Wait 20 minutes and rinse.


  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup liquid soap
  • 1/2 tsp. light vegetable oil (omit if you have very oily hair)

Mix. Store in a empty shampoo bottle.

Herbal Shampoo

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp. dried or 1/3 cup fresh chamomile, lavender or rosemary
  • 1/2 cup shampoo
  • 2 Tbsp. glycerin

Mix together the water and herbs. Heat on simmer until it looks like strong tea. Let stand for about 25 minutes. Add shampoo and glycerin, stir well. Pour into a bottle. Leave overnight to thicken.

Beer Hair Treatment

  • 1 cup beer (fresh or flat, cheap is great!)
  • 1 cup shampoo
Heat beer using medium heat until it is reduced to about 1/4 cup, then add it to the shampoo and mix. Pour into a bottle.

Favorite Hair Rinse

  • 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 3 cups distilled water
Mix and use as a final rinse

Now for the Herbal Users group! I also give this away as gifts!

Herbal Oil

  • 1 part dried herbs
  • 2 parts olive or almond oil

Mix well and put into a container. Let stand for 2 weeks. Make sure you shake it every day. Strain the oil into a bottle with a lid and refrigerate until ready to use. Work the oil from roots to ends. If you have oily hair, apply to ends only.

It depends on what products you want.
Here's a recipe for shampoo... I haven't tried it yet, but then I only just found it the other day.

Chamomile Fields Shampoo
By: Pioneer Thinking
The Ingredients
4 bags of Chamomile tea (or 1 handful of fresh Chamomile flowers)
4 tablespoons pure soap flakes
1 1/2 tablespoons glycerin*

Let the tea bags steep in 1 1/2 cups of boiled water for 10 minutes. Remove the tea bags and with the remaining liquid add the soap flakes. Let stand until the soap softens. Stir in glycerin until mixture is well blended. Pour into a bottle. Keep in a dark, cool place.
