HOMEMADE SHAMPOO
Your ultimate guide to homemade shampoo! Here are ten easy recipes you can use to find the perfect formula for your hair.

The benefits are that you can use all natural ingredients, avoid all of the fillers and irritants commercial makers use, scent it any way you want, and customize it to suit your hair's needs.
Step 1: BASIC


For normal hair, or as a base to add your own scents, use


  • 1/4 cup distilled water
  • 1/4 cup liquid Castile Soap - I use unscented, but you can choose your favorite
  • 1/2 teaspoon jojoba, grapeseed, or other light vegetable oil
  • Flip Cap Bottles or Foaming Bottles to dispense
Mix together all the ingredients. Store in a bottle. Shake before use.
This mixture isn't as thick as commercial shampoos - you'll need to just tilt the bottle over your head.
Step 2: STIMULATE



To wake up your scalp and your senses, try tea tree and peppermint oil!

Combine

  • 1/4 cup distilled water
  • 1/4 cup liquid Castile Soap - I use unscented, but you can choose your favorite
  • 2 tsp jojoba oil
  • 1/8 tsp peppermint essential oil
  • 1/8 tsp tea tree essential oil
  • Flip Cap Bottles or Foaming Bottles to dispense
Mix all ingredients, then add 1/4 cup distilled water
Store in a bottle. Use as you would any shampoo, rinse well.
Step 3: QUENCH



For dry hair, try this:


  • 1/4 cup distilled water
  • 1/4 cup liquid Castile Soap - your favorite scent
  • 1/4 cup aloe vera gel
  • 1 teaspoon glycerin
  • 1/4 teaspoon avocado oil or jojoba oil
  • Flip Cap Bottles or Foaming Bottles to dispense
Mix together all the ingredients. Store in a bottle and always shake well before using.

Apply to hair and allow to sit for a few minutes. Rinse well with cool water.
