I know that many of you don’t have access to a lot of the products I post about or just prefer to live a 100% natural life and use as much natural products and ingredients as possible, the reason why I am bringing you today this amazing DIY Natural Shampoo for Dry Hair with simple ingredients that you can pretty much find anywhere or online. You can make as much as you want, just be sure that you keep the same proportions of the first two ingredients, I also recommend to make a small batch the first time to test it out; maybe you will need less oil if your hair is oily.
You will need:
- 1/2 cup Pure Castile soap. Castile refers to any vegetable oil based soap, please read the label to ensure there are no artificial or petroleum additives.
- 1/2 cup Aloe Vera. The combination of Aloe Vera’s 20 amino acids adds strength and luster to the hair.
- 1 tbs jojoba oil. Composed of 98% monounsaturated fats and 2% saturated fats, it penetrates the hair follicles and strengthens hair fibers, adds luster and shine.
- 1tbs sweet almond oil. It contains polyunsaturated, mono fatty acids and vitamins E, D, B1, B2, B6 and A, that nourishes, smoothes and adds shine to the hair cuticles.
- 1tbs pure glycerin. Moisturizes dry, brittle hair, it also strengthens the hair and can help with breakage and split ends.
- 10 drops of essential oil of your choice (orange, jasmine, lavender, etc.).
I will be using tea tree oil which is perfect for scalp problems like eczema and dandruff that my daughter suffers with when the cold months approach.
How? easy breezy curly girls, just mix all the ingredients, let it rest for a few hours before your first use (just because I believe the ingredient has a better chance to combine all together) put it in a nice and beautiful jar, label it and use as your regular shampoo.
