I attempted to make some one time and added too much lecithin to it and it turned out more like a shellac then conditioner! DH still reminds me of that everytime I ask him to try something new I made. The nicest things I use to ocassionally give my hair special treatment is olive oil or mayonnaise or avocado. These make the hair so luxurious. If you have trouble getting the oils out after shampooing just give your hair a vinegar rinse. Vinegar is nice to add shine and restore the scalps acid mantle.
