DIY products are a great way to save money, be healthy and have something you can make unique to suit your needs. You can add your favorite fragrances, essential oils and organic ingredients. I have found some recipes for making your own shampoo, and it will be free of the harsh mystery chemicals that modern shampoos are filled with. Here are a few ideas for healthy hair.
Start with :
Flip top container, or old shampoo bottle
1/4 cup Liquid Castile Soap (Dr. Bronners is a wonderful Brand)
1/4 cup Distilled water
From here you can add the ingredients that you need for your hair needs:
1/4 cup aloe vera gel
1 teaspoon glycerin
1/4 teaspoon avocado oil or jojoba oil
Mix these ingredients in a bottle of your choice and shake well before using. Massage into scalp…let sit and rinse out
Add 1 tsp Olive oil
Shake well and shampoo as usual
15 drops of peppermint
5 drops of spearmint
Shake well before each use…massage scalp and rinse
1 to 2 drops of lavender
Add an additional 1/2 oz of water to dilute the initial recipe. Safe, mild and calming
There are many more ways to make shampoos such as adding honey, eggs, coconut,avocado and/or bananas for dry hair. Beer is a great volumizer, lemon juice for lightening, you can even pick herbs or tea, boil them and add them to your mix. The sky is the limit on how you can DIY !!

FYI…Always be sure you have no allergies to these ingredients by doing a spot test on your skin.
