Herbal Cleansing Conditioner Formula

Herbal Cleansing Conditioner Formula

This refreshing formula will moisturize and smooth your hair, gently cleanse your scalp, and impart a delicate and soothing herbal scent, all at the same time. In fact, this smells so good, you may find that people will want to hug you longer!

A natural humectant, a pH balancer, and a lovely herbal ingredient all combine to make this wonderful formula. Read it here:


1/4 cup dried lavender

6 ounces boiling water
2 ounces glycerin
1 ounce lemon juice

1. Put the lavender in a lidded jar and cover with boiling water. Cover and allow to steep overnight, then strain out the flowers (you can dry them for another use), retaining the lavender water.

2. In a lidded jar, place the lavender water, glycerin, and lemon juice and shake to blend.

3. Apply about 1/4 cup of this mixture to clean wet hair, then rinse with warm water.

Makes 1 cup, and keeps for a week or so.

I went to buy lavender Flower from here:
and under the precautions, it says "For best results, avoid heating the herb with boiling water." I'm not sure what it causes, but I trust this store.

I think that there may be a glycerin-like compound made out of oil (big maybe there), but glycerin(e) is vegetable product otherwise. There are, of course, varying degrees of purity/naturalness in glycerine brands that may affect what you choose to buy.

Is there a vegan substitute for the glycerin?
