Chamomile Flower rinses are known as wonderful conditioning treatments for the hair. Chamomile flowers have infused my Slippery Soft Hair Lotion Recipe  with amazing softness and great slip, and it’s also great for soothing the scalp. (Chagrin Valley Soap and Salve).

Cetyl Alcohol


Cetyl alcohol is a fatty alcohol that is naturally derived from animals and plants and is used to formulate conditioners. It will improve product texture, act as a lubricant, and facilitate moisture retention.  It benefits the hair by allowing the product to spread evenly throughout the hair, softens the hair, and seals in moisture which is great for the hair and the scalp. (Livestrong.com).

Comfrey Root


Comfrey Root is a herb that is rich in fatty acids that stimulate blood flow to the scalp, nourishes and strengthens hair follicles, to promote healthy hair growth and improve the overall condition of hair. (Chagrin Valley Soap and Salve Company) I bought this herb from  after I attended a natural hair event in the Bay Area and heard that it has great slip for the hair. I wanted to try this along with the burdock and see how it would affect the smoothness of my hair. When I used it in a home-made curl cream that I am still in the process of formulating, I was very happy with the slip and feel of it.

I purchased burdock root through Mountain Rose Herbs. If you are into comparative shopping, try a Google search of burdock root and then click the “Shopping” tab. Let me know if you find this ingredient locally or for less $$$!
