Here I will compile as many homemade recipes as I find. Making your own products not only saves money, but it gives you the freedom to decide exactly what you put in your hair.

Amazing Whipped Shea Butter (This could be used as a pre-poo or as and an everyday moisturizer) 
Unrefined Shea Butter 4 heaped tablespoons
Pure Coconut Oil 1 heaped tablespoon
Almond Oil 1 tablespoon
Jojoba Oil 1 tablespoon
You could either melt the shea butter or mix without melting. Either way, combine all of the ingredients, and whisk until the mixture is super thick. Put it in the freezer until the top and sides become solid (5-10 minutes). Then whisk again until the mixture is whipped and smooth. If you're a sucker for smells, you could add some vanilla essence too ;)
