Gluten free, chemical free conditioner for frizzy hair?

I'm switching our family over to a liquid castile soap for shampoo when our current shampoo runs out. But I'm having trouble finding a conditioner that will work on my hair. I have very thick, healthy, starting to grey, partially curly/wavy and very frizzy hair. I think, more than anything, I just need a frizz control conditioner. I'd really like to find a recipe that I can make here at home, but I'd be open to purchasing some to give it a try. The only restrictions are:
1. It can't have any gluten (wheat, rye, oats, barley, wheat germ oil, wheat protein, vitamin e, etc) in it.
2. I want it to be chemical free.

I'd love any links, spam, recipes you can send my way! TIA!

Re: Gluten free, chemical free conditioner for frizzy hair?

Have you ever used castile soap as shampoo? If not, then you need to know that your hair might feel a little yucky and tangled once you rinse the soap out. Some people (myself included) use an ACV rinse which should leave your hair feeling smooth and silky.

Have you checked out Dr. Bronner's leave in conditioner? There is also a hair treatment/rinse that they do.

Another thing- I know some people that just use coconut oil as a conditioner. Maybe you could try that?

I've used castile soap in the past. I actually did no-poo for about 6 months and then switched to Dr. Bronners. I've did the ACV when I did no-poo. I didn't even think about trying that with castile soap. That would be an easy thing to start doing again.

Dr. Bronners conditioner has something in it that I can't use...vitamin e or wheat something...I can't remember right off the top of my head. I was really disappointed, too. I wanted to try the two together and see if they worked for my hair.

I've used coconut oil, too. I never found a happy medium with it. Either too oily or too frizzy.

i would definitely try the ACV rinse again, esp if it worked for you before. my sister also mentioned tea rinses...but i don't have any experience with that firsthand. might be worth a look-up.
