You will need the following.

  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ cups of water
  • Cornstarch – this is optional for thickening


Mix the baking soda with the water, varying the amount of water used for how thick you want your dry shampoo to be. If you want it even thicker, then add some cornstarch to the desired thickness.

You can also include any essential oils you want to get a variety of delicious smells.

3. Hair Rinse

4. Deep Conditioner

You will need the following.

5. Oil Hair-Conditioning Treatment

You will need the following.

  • 2-4 tablespoons of jojoba, olive, or coconut oil
  • Essential oils of choice (optional)


Warm the base oil and mix in any other essential oils. You can use a glass jar set in a pot of hot water to do this.

Dampen hair. For longer or thicker hair, use 1 to 2 teaspoons of the oil mixture. For hair that is short or fine, use only 1/4 teaspoon of the mixture. You can also choose what’s best for your hair by using as much as you feel is right.

Heat will facilitate the conditioning processes so if you can, sit in the sun. Leave on for 1 to 2 hours and then shampoo out and rinse.

Shaving Cream

You will need the following.

  • Shea Butter – 4 tbsp
  • Coconut Oil – use sustainable coconut oil – 3 tbsp
  • Sweet almond oil – 2 tbsp
  • Pure essential oil – lavender is the best – around 10 – 12 drops


Set up a glass bowl over a pot of simmering hot water. Turn down to the lowest heat, add shea butter and coconut oil, and let them melt. Once melted remove from heat. Add almond oil and essential oils and stir.

Place in the fridge to solidify. When the mixture has hardened, mix with a handheld mixer until it is the texture of frosting. Leave to settle for 10 minutes. Store in an airtight container.
