Homemade Shampoo

Over the past couple of years my hair has really taken a beating. It was falling out in clumps. It was dry, brittle, it wasn’t growing like it used to and had lost all of its curl. It wasn’t until about a year ago that it hit me! Why is it that I take so many precautions when it comes to what I put into my body and I have given zero thought to what I use on my body and in my hair??? Thats when I started to research natural hair growth and conditioning treatments. This recipe will hold up for about a month without being refrigerated so you can keep it in your shower.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup castille soap (i use lavender because i love the smell but you can also get unscented and use any essential oil to scent)
  • 5-10 drops rosemary oil
  • 1 tbsp vitamin e oil
  • 1 tbsp castor oil (optional)

I use the castor oil for the added benefits and because my hair needs the extra oils. Castor oil is great for hair growth and to prevent hair loss. If your hair produces enough oil on its own, I would leave out the added castor oil.

Rosemary oil also stimulates hair growth and promotes healing. Great for your scalp. It also smells amazing mixed with lavender!

I mix all of my ingredients in a measuring cup and then transfer to a jar.

  1. I never thought about making shampoo just assumed the stores had the best products. Until I’ve ised every brand and none of them seem to work. Looks like I’ll be making changes including mixing up shampoo! Thanks Brittany your amazing, innovative, recipes are inspiring me to be the best I can and care more about every little thing I consume.

    1. Yeah thats what happened with me. Nothing helped my hair until i started making my own. Thanks so much for the love 🙂 xoxo
