Easy Hair Conditioner

*Recipe from Natural Beauty at Home by Janice Cox*

This is a wonderfully simple and cheap hair conditioner that will keep your hair feeling smooth and healthy through all the things that we are always putting our hair through.  It is based on a recipe given to Mrs. Janice Cox by her grandmother. Her grandmother remembered using it in her hair when she was a young girl in the 1920's, riding around in those old open topped automobiles!

Roaring Twenties Conditioner

1 packet unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup warm water
1 egg
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Dissolve the gelatin in the warm water, stirring well. Add the egg and lemon juice and mix well.

Shampoo your hair as usual. Rub the conditioner into your hair and leave on for 1 to 2 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Rinse for at least 1 minute, then finish with a cool-water rinse.

Yield: 3 ounces, enough for one application.

I just found this, and thought I'd share it with you! I am planning on trying it today. If you try it, be sure to let me know how you like it!! :-D

Have a great day!!!
