Making your own Organic shampoo.
Making your own shampoo is fun and saves you an abundant amount of money. There are a few methods and items to put in your shampoo depending on your hair type. Did you know that you can add different flowers to bring out the red tones if you are a red head. If you have dry hair there is a homemade shampoo for that minus the chemicals. If you need something for oily hair you can also make something to suit your needs.
The base of the shampoo generally is grated castile soap, about three tablespoons. The second ingredient is one tablespoon of glycerin. The next base ingredient is five drops of essential oil of your choice. The last base ingredient is a half a cup of distilled water.
Depending on what kind of hair you want and your goals for your hair.
Dry or damaged hair ingredients you can use differ. coconut oil, coconut milk, Rose pedals (organic/no sprays) egg. If you use a recipe with egg make sure to store your left over shampoo in the refrigerator.
Even though homemade shampoo will not lather like an off the shelf shampoo does not mean it is not working, it means it will not leave residue in your hair. Make sure you let the shampoo sit for three minutes before rinsing for best result. Rinse with warm not hot water. Last make sure you use distilled water and not tap water so that you don’t have chemicals in your shampoo.
