The ladies I've trusted for many years for their personal care and cosmetic philosophies - a long time before natural went mainstream - have been running a forum for a few years now and growing a network of natural personal care product vendors. The moderators are all DIYers who've turned their eco- skin- and haircare crafts into small women-run businesses. They research their suppliers thoroughly and sell raw as well as finished products, both their own and a very few products they're researched to be toxin-free. The products span the range of 100% organic to containing synthetic lab-derived ingredients, with full disclosure and there are certainly no crude oil derivatives in any product they craft or recommend. They've worked together for years maintaining the forum and now craft products in their respective home states around the country.

I have been using Aubrey for quite a few years, until I found an amazing company in the UK that is called Essential Care. They use organic, biodynamic (demeter) and fair-trade ingredients. The products have no nasties in them and are all handmade per small batches. I love the shampoo - gentle herb along with their candy body scrub (which is also good enough to eat!).

Have you ever tried simply 50/50 water/vinegar for a conditioner? Vinegar is a very inexpensive and effective hair conditioner. More information can be found here http://soapshop.phchnaturalsoap.com/helpdesk/default.aspx?RowID=1022. I wish you well in your search for a good green conditioner. :)
