It is easy and inexpensive to make your own shampoo and conditioner, plus you know exactly what is in it and can add your all time favorite fragrance!
1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup castile soap, 1/2 teaspoon light vegetable oil
(use the same as conventional shampoo)
1 tablespoon baking soda in 1 cup of water
(mix and pour over your wet hair)
50% water/ 50% apple cider vinegar
(simply shake and pour over your wet hair)
1 teaspoon of coconut oil. Sit for an hour and wash out with shampoo.
or for a lighter conditioner, use 1 teaspoon of olive oil
Get creative, add dried herbs to your oil or vinegar to infuse your favorite scent. You will need to let the herbs sit in the oil for 2-4 weeks to fully impart their scent. If you would like to add a fragrance to water, place 1/2 cup fresh herbal leaves or petals and pour 1/2 cup boiling water over the mint. Allow to cool and strain. For an instant sensory payback, add a few drops of essential oils.
