Update: Tried it. I made a coconut concoction with coconut flakes and aloe vera juice. This makes at least two or three shampoos worth.
1/2 c unsweetened coconut flakes
1 cup of aloe vera juice
5 or more drops of melaleuca oil (tea tree oil)
I blended all three ingredients together in the blender, and strained the pulp out (don't throw out the pulp!). poured the "milk" in a glass jar. I used about a third of the mixture to wash my hair and am waiting for my hair to dry to see how it feels. It seems softer and less dry.
What I did with the pulp:
I set aside the pulp and added honey and a few more drops of tea tree oil to use as a facial mask. My face feels so smooth. The oil from the coconut flakes really is great as a moisturizer. Tea tree oil is great for acne and honey is a great moisturizer as well. All three ingredients are antibacterial.
