4.  Baking Soda Hair Cleansing Mud – Mix 1 heaping Tbsp. of Baking Soda and 3-5 drops of essential oils of your choice (lavender, patchouli, rosemary, sweet orange are some of mine:not necessarily all together) with enough water to make a paste.  Mix this in the shower. It took a little getting use too, with there being no suds.

5.  Natural Chemical Free Shampoo – Use these three ingredients and use as a natural DIY shampoo, ¼ cup distilled water  ( deionized water is ok ), ¼ cup liquid castile soap ( I use unscented ), and ½ teaspoon jojoba, grapeseed or other light vegetable oil.

6.  Chamomile Fields ShampooLet 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.

  1. We recently found an OLD bottle of listerine (antique old) at work… if you read the label, it was originally labelled for all sorts of things, including “infectious dandruff” and for use as a deodorant. So…. while I don’t know how it actually works for all these things, that is what it was originally marketed to do!

  2. Just a word of caution about the chamomile tea shampoo–if you have blonde hair, chamomile tea will turn your hair very yellow. I would avoid it if you like your hair to be a softer or more platinum shade of blonde. Other than that, great tips, Laurie! Thanks!

  3. When I was a swimmer I used the mayo mask to help my brittle hair (it felt like hay). mayo, olive oil, and an egg were great for reconditioning.

    SERIOUS TIP: I made a mask for my hair out of avocado, olive oil, egg, and I think banana one time. Egg is wonderful for your hair, but DO NOT rinse it out with hot water! I made scrambled eggs. in my hair.

  4. When my daughter had lice, the pesticide shampoos did nothing. But rinsing her hair with original Listerine, then having it sit for about 30 minutes with her hair under a shower cap killed the little buggers. Plus it helped to ease the itch and cleared the dandruff she had at the time.

  5. Listerine also works wonders for dandruff. I only use it once or twice a week to avoid over-drying from the alcohol, but the anti-fungal properties of Listerine (yes, the original brown kind) keeps dandruff in check more than any other affordable thing I’ve tried.
