Homemade All Natural Hair Conditioner

OK. I am apparently late to the party...no surprise there...regarding the whole "no shampoo" movement. (I'm sure this is due to the fact that I've been such a blogging slacker, but whatever. I'm here now, I'm trying to catch up.) ANYWAY....back to the whole "no shampoo" ordeal. I've recently since several ( 3 or 4) blog posts about using a solution of baking soda and water to clean your hair instead of shampoo. No, I'm not kidding. And using Apple cider vinegar as a rinse/conditioner. Again, not kidding. So, tonight, I decided to give it a shot! I got both recipes from here . I skipped the honey and aloe vera gel in the conditioner..just water, apple cider vinegar and essential oils. The baking soda cleanser was fine, no big deal. The conditioner was GLORIOUS! I love it, love it LOVE it. I just hope all my hair doesn't fall out tonight while I sleep. If you're looking for and all natural AND inexpensive hair care treatment, give it try. Tell me what you think.

I tried it for a couple of weeks. I loved how curly it made my hair! But the baking soda mixture really dried my scalp out. Maybe because I'm older? I really can go 3 or so days between washings as it is. And even then my hair doesn't really get oily, just funky.
Also, my climate is dry. Anyway, I loved the ease of it and the curls but my scalp itched and flaked. Maybe I needed to adjust something....?
I'm curious to see how it goes for you.
