A woman rinsing her hair in the shower.Does the recipe for Tame cream rinse detangle hair? Mine is awful and I can't go to the Dollar tree and get it, because I need to use dandruff shampoo.

After you shampoo, use any creme rinse or conditioner you like. Then, mix 2-4 Tbsps. cider vinegar into a large cup of water and pour it over your scalp. Gently rub in and let sit for a minute before rinsing with warm water. This should help your dandruff and let you use whatever rinse or conditioner you like.

I want to know if you have the recipe for making Tame cream rinse or shampoo? I would also, be interested in where I can buy it cheap. It was popular in the 1970s and 1980s. Thanks.

I found the 2-in-1 Tame shampoo/creme rinse at Dollar Tree in bright green bottle. Didn't see any separate shampoo or creme rinse. But at $1.00 a bottle you can't beat the price!

I have been looking for it myself, & Loves fresh lemon body splash. The latter I found in a pic-n-save in SoCal a few years ago & bought it all. I think since the Dollar Tree has it, you could look at and see if they have Tame available anywhere in any of their stores maybe we could find it that way.


I have ordered wedding vases online thru them and they delivered to my Dollar Tree free & in less than a week. Big Lots might be worth doing an online search too cause they get some really "vintage" looking hygiene items. They even sell pregnancy tests, 2 in a box, & fertility thermometers for a dollar!

Can anyone tell me how to make a creme rinse like Tame? Regular conditioners make my hair oily?
