Conditioner tutorial thingie - free download

Merry Christmas! I'm taking a break from the oil research to post what I hope you will consider a few Christmas treats!

Today's is a conditioner tutorial thingie in PDF format, which contains all the posts on conditioners from this blog. It contains information on how conditioners work, some stuff on BTMS, and recipes for liquid, solid, leave in, and intense conditioners, as well as a beard conditioner and shaving bar! Enjoy!

If you can't download the package from the link above, try this one from 4 shared...

If you download this package, you'll note on the back page I do a little mooching. (I hope this isn't considered is for a good cause!) I run youth groups at our two local libraries - Chilliwack and Yarrow - with my husband, best friend, and mother. We have two craft groups, two video game clubs, two card and board game clubs, and a Japanese pop culture group. We provide all the supplies, games, and treats for the programs. We did have some funding from the Friends of the Library, but that ends this month. We do have some funding for three more months thanks to a friend who collected donations at her wedding - thank you so much! And I am trying to apply for grants, but there isn't a lot of money out there for non-profit groups right now. So we've been doing most of it from our own supplies or buying supplies with our own money. Each weekly program costs about $75 and we do six every month at the Chilliwack library, and two per month at the Yarrow library (with the games club every other month there due to cost). (The library does fund two of our programs, but video games and card games night have exceeded these costs.) We've had over 7,000 kids attend our programs since 2005, and we'd love to keep them going.

If you have a little to spare, please consider donating a few dollars to our groups. You can reach me (Susan) at Hyperwallet or PayPal at If you live in the Chilliwack area and have some spare bottles lying around, we have an account set up at the Chilliwack bottle depot under account #81, youth library programs. You can return bottles to the depot, then give us the receipt so we can put it towards our supplies! (I am hoping to get an account set up soon at the Sardis location.)

You aren't obligated to donate anything to download the package. Download it, play with the recipes, let me know how they turned out for you!

I absolutely love your conditioner recipes and your anti-frizz spray is fantastic! I'm looking forward to reading the whole pdf.

I wondered if you could give me some advice... I started using straighteners recently and was wondering what you would suggest as heat protector? I'm currently using the "Dry hair conditioner" and then the "leave in conditioner" from your recipes and that might be enough but just wondering if there is anything else you could suggest.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to you, Esmee!

Hoshishi: Is it okay if I wait a few days to answer this in a post because there's a ton of interesting things here that won't fit into a comment!

Merry Christmas!

That sounds great. Looking forward to it.

I co-sign on the heat protectors for hair, I'm looking forward to that post because I've started to use more heat on my hair lately and also this came at the right time! I have all your conditioner posts bookmarked and I was going to go over them all before the new year because one of my goals for 2010 is to treat my hair better with better conditioners for it. I really enjoy your blog!
