Today there are a variety of shampoos available in the market which comes with the promise of making your hair beautiful.
But little do people know of the fact that your hair can be made beautiful by the use of homemade products. There are many homemade shampoos that you can prepare in order to make your hair beautiful and healthy.
Unlike commercially available shampoos, these homemade shampoos do not contain any harmful ingredients which may cause allergic reactions to the user. Also homemade shampoos don’t strip the hair of its natural oils and thus prevents your hair from becoming frizzy after shampooing.
For preparing a homemade shampoo, you will have to boil 2 cups of distilled water. To the boiled water add dried herbs like rosemary, chamomile, rose petals or lavender. These herbs will help in adding a unique fragrance to your shampoo.
Cover this solution and leave it undisturbed for half an hour. Strain the solution and add to it half a cup of liquid castile soap and an essential oil of your choice.
The castile soap will help in moisturizing and conditioning your hair. If you have oily hair then you can add rosemary essential oil. People with dry hair can make use of lemon essential oil in order to provide moisture to the hair. Stir the solution well and your homemade shampoo is ready to use.
For preparing another kind of shampoo, you have to dip 2 green tree bags in 250 ml of boiled water. Remove the tea bags after 10 minutes and to the solution add baking soda, lemon juice, olive oil and chamomile oil to make your homemade shampoo. Regular use of this shampoo is guaranteed to make your hair stronger and thicker.
You can also make a nourishing homemade shampoo by mixing together quarter cups of liquid castile soap, avocado oil, Aloe vera gel and 1 teaspoon of glycerine.
Even though these homemade shampoos will not lather as much as commercial shampoos, they are very much effective in cleaning and nourishing your hair without causing the build up of residues. Also the absence of chemicals in the shampoos also decreases the chances of long term health hazards.
