    Hi SilentMagenta! I'm using one part baking soda to 3 parts water mixed up in a squeeze bottle for shampoo. Apple cider vinegar with a fresh sprig of lavender soaking in it ( I grow that in my garden) in a spray bottle is my rinse and for between washings. I use extra virgin olive oil for conditioner. Coconut or almond oil might work better for you. Our natural hair routine is working about as well as anything ever has for my whole family. I used to use all kinds of janky product, but I've got a fourteen year old son who wants to go to college smile Honestly the results of this are close enough to Wen to make me happy. It costs next to nothing comparatively.

      I like this idea simply for its simplicity. Beautiful

      Is the rinses an everyday thing? Is the coconut oil leave in conditioner or wash out? Why baking soda and water? Where is your protein wash or co wash? Sorry for all the questions. Im shopping for a new hair routine. My hair in thinning.

    I have more than a dozen shampoos; I like to change it up to do better on my hair. I like Citra Shine, Vo5, Silkience, Suave (all the different kinds) and just many kinds, and I don't find expensive ones any better really. I stopped using conditioner though I will use shampoos that hydrate the hair; but use polishers sparingly for shine. I have great hair, from my mom I am sure but where hers was really course I have trained mine well and it is always very soft. Oh and I got started with the afro softeners that made my hair in good shape. The one I started with was pink something but that is all I can remember. I used several though cause my hair then was so over processed from using hair color and they really worked for me and today when I don't color anymore it is still in great condition.
