Living in Seattle makes going homemade fairly easy. I don't have to look far to find raw materials or resort to ordering them online. Up in north Seattle Zenith Supplies carries all the oils, butters, etc., to make any sort of personal care products I will need. Monday morning we made our first visit and bought supplies for shampoo, a hair butter for Isa and a project that I'm working up the courage to try (more on that in a future post).
I should add that I have very short hair which is straight and fine, although not thin. It's pretty boring, basic hair that doesn't need a lot of special attention. If you have dry hair, then perhaps add a little more oil or follow with conditioner. If you have oily hair, then perhaps add peppermint essential oil and/or tea tree oil.
Now that I've started the process of replacing store bought personal care products with homemade versions, I thought I should take a photo of the shelves in our bathroom. This is what they looked like today:
