    Well I don't know if this is a diy product... But I guess it works like one :) I have suffered from bad dandruff. Been using head and shoulders for a year or two now and I stopped recently after finding out that it can make dandruff worse. So I decided to create my own natural remedy. I also have dry hair, so I take a good amount of olive oil (enough for my hair and scalp) put it in a plastic bowl and put ONLY 5 drops of tea tree. I put it all over my hair and massage it in my scalp. Then I put a towel on top of my head and sleep on it. The next morning I wash it off with my fav shampoo- and voila! Soft, smooth and minty smelling hair.

    I am a DIY freak at heart and make about 90% of the products I use on my hair. My two favorites are my Leave-in Conditioner (remix) and my whipped butter which doubles as a body butter! :)
    It is a never ending exciting adventure!

    Stopped using relaxers (Mid 2009) and Hair Dyes (Mid 2011) :wav:

    Hi y'all! Being fairly new on here, I am so happy to finally discover so many ways to rescue my curls! thanks :)

    As far as DIY products: Face cleanser :Natural, ingredients from my pantry.

    Dry skin: Light cream (1/2 tsp) +gram flour (Besan) 1 tsp+ turmeric powder 1/4 tsp. use as face wash at night as a bedtime routine. No soap as turmeric turns soap red!!

    Oily Skin: skip the cream. rest is same. can use with aloe gel to get the gooey soapy feel.
    (its important to keep this powder dry in an airtight container for multiple uses)

    Hair: Just tried this and it feels awesome! gel from 2 aloe leaves from my plant +distilled water and blend. Add 1 tbsp virgin olive oil and apply as a pre poo. So--soft hair!!

    Thanks!
    peace and love

    My hair ADORES coconut oil! In fact I think it may be my head's favorite food :thumright:

    I tried Trader Joe's coconut oil in my hair as a pre-cowash treatment yesterday, and I'm loving how my hair looks and feels today! So soft and silky, and you can really see my 3a/b pattern: varying in size and tightness, from sidewalk-chalk to Sharpie-sized curls all over my head!

    I have very very sensitive skin and break out easily (when I do break out the pimples leave scars that take forever to fade). I swear by this face mask, it keeps my skin hydrated but clear and fades scars:

    1 heaped tsp of plain unsweetened yogurt
    1 flat tsp of uncooked oatmeal (crumbled a little more with your fingers)

    Mix both ingredients and apply it on your face. Keep it on for 20-30 mins and wash off with warm water.

    Does anyone have a particular rinse-out conditioner recipe they like to make?

    to be honest, I don't like DIY products anymore, however, I have the only one that I can use forever. It's a coffee scrub for the body. You can also use it for your face, but in that case is your skin is NOT sensitive.
    the recipe is simple: ground coffee (for face fine meal would be better ) + fav oil (I use olive) + fav essential oil for more scent (optional)
    also, you can add some sea salt, sugar, vitamins (a or e), even cream. it's up to you ;)
