Homemade Shampoo Recipe!

ES

Hello my beloved readers!

Do you by any chance happen to be obsessed with your hair as much as I am? If yes, this is the post for you!
Learn how to make your own homemade shampoo easily and treat your hair well!

So this is the easiest recipe for homemade shampoo, that even I tried to make on my own and actually made it!

YOU WILL NEED:
coconut milk (you can either buy an organic coconut milk or make one by yourself)
{COCONUT MILK RECIPE: 

Ingredients
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1.5-2 cups of unsweetened shredded coconut
Instructions
  1. Heat water, but don’t boil. It should be hot, but not scalding.
  2. Put coconut in blender or Vitamix and add water. (If all water won’t fit, you can add the water in two batches.)
  3. Blend on high for several minutes until thick and creamy.
  4. Pour through a mesh colander first to get most of the coconut out, and then squeeze through a towel or several thicknesses of cheesecloth to get remaining pieces of coconut out.
  5. If you have to split the water, put all the coconut that you strained out back in the blender, add the remaining water, and repeat.
  6. Flavor options- add in after all coconut has been strained out: ½ tsp vanilla extract, ½ cup fresh or frozen strawberries, 2 tsp cocoa powder + ½ tsp vanilla.
  7. Drink immediately or store in the fridge. Should be used in 3-4 days after making for best flavor and texture. Since there are no preservatives or fillers, the “cream” of the coconut milk may separate on the top if stored in the fridge. Just shake or stir before using.}

– liquid castile soap

-Essential Oils of choice


 

Ingredients
  • ¼ cup coconut milk (homemade or canned)
  • ⅓ cup Liquid Castille Soap like Dr. Bronners
  • 20 drops of Essential Oil of Choice (I’ve used peppermint, lavender, rosemary and orange or combinations of those)
  • For dry hair: add ½ tsp olive or almond oil (optional)
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients in an old shampoo bottle or jar of some kind (pump soap dispensers and even foaming dispensers work well for this. If you use a foaming dispenser, add ¼ cup of distilled water)
  2. Shake well to mix.
  3. Keep in shower for up to a month.
  4. Shake before each use.
  5. Use about a teaspoon every time you shampoo.
  6. If you use a foaming dispenser, it also makes a great shaving cream- just dilute with ¼ cup distilled water!
