Mix ¼ cup water, ¼ cup liquid castile soap, and ½ teaspoon of safflower oil. You can add a tablespoon of strongly-brewed chamomile tea for extra conditioning and a great smell. Apply the shampoo to wet hair and lather well. Rinse thoroughly.
Daily Dry Hair Treatment
An excellent way to treat dry ends on a daily basis is to reach for that same bottle of safflower oil. Start with dry, clean hair. Put a couple of drops of oil in the palm of your hand. Rub your hands together and then apply by gently squeeze sections of your hair, starting at the ends. Because you add only a tiny amount, it won’t be enough to weigh down your hair or to make it appear greasy. The oil will, however, help to keep your long hair in good condition with fewer split ends.
Deep Conditioning Treatments
Mix one part olive oil with two parts honey (the necessary amount depends on the length of your hair). Apply the conditioner to your hair after shampooing and gently comb through with a wide-toothed comb. Cover your head with a plastic shower cap or grocery bag and leave it on for 15-30 minutes, depending on how much conditioning you need. Then wash your hair with the basic shampoo recipe at the beginning of this article.
To treat dry hair and a dry scalp, beat one tablespoon each of castor oil, glycerine, and cider vinegar with a teaspoon of tear-free baby shampoo. Massage the conditioner into your scalp. Leave it on for 20 minutes then rinse well with warm water.

For a power-packed protein treatment, beat ¼ cup of plain yogurt with one egg. Apply the conditioner to your hair, cover with a plastic bag or shower cap, and leave it in for 15 minutes. Wash your hair with the basic shampoo detailed above.
To boost the shine level of your hair, boil two tablespoons of rosemary in a cup of water for 10 minutes. Cool the infusion and strain it.
