How to Make Shampoo at Home Naturally – Easy Recipes
You get that enormous satisfaction that usually comes with a DIY project, you also get to save some money and use only natural ingredients to wash your hair, and not the chemicals found in the regular shampoos – these are three good reasons to tuck up your sleeves and start working to make your own shampoo naturally. We are here to help with a couple of easy recipes showing you how to make shampoo at home naturally.
For the first recipe you need ¼ cup coconut milk (homemade or canned), ⅓ cup Liquid Castille Soap like, 20 drops of essential oils of choice (either peppermint, lavender, rosemary and orange or combinations of those) and, if you have a dry hair, add ½ tea spoon of olive or almond oil.
Mix all these ingredients in an old shampoo bottle or a simple jar. In case you use a foaming dispenser, add ¼ cup of distilled water. Shake well to mix all the ingredients and you get your naturally made shampoo. Keep in shower for up to a month and remember to shake before each use. Use about a teaspoon every time you shampoo.
The next recipes have egg as the core ingredient. The first recipe is very simple: mix two or three eggs, depending on the length of the hair. Wash your hair with this as if it were a normal shampoo. At the end, use a conditioner to remove the egg’s smell and you can also make it yourselves by mixing two table spoons of vinegar or lemon juice with one litter of water and three drops of aromatic oil that smells great, and rinse your hair after you washed it. Your hair will become shinier and healthier looking.
The third recipe consists in mixing two eggs with two table spoons of lemon juice, adding one table spoon of honey and three drops of olive oil. Massage this “shampoo” into your scalp and spread it on the hair, then rinse with lukewarm water. This is a very easy and simple way to get your hair clean, shiny and healthy, using only natural ingredients. This shampoo is good for all hair types, it’s very nourishing and moisturizing.
The fourth recipe is based on baking soda: mix one tablespoon of baking soda with three egg’s yolks and wash your hair with it as you would do with your usual shampoo. After you massaged it into your hair, rinse well. The baking soda shampoo removes all the dirt in the hair and also the excess sebum, but it is not recommended to be used more than two times a month. You can alternate its use with another homemade shampoo.
