DIY shampoo

Just the other day – the hb mentioned that he felt the shampoo I ‘made’ for him (essentially just diluted Dr Bronner Lavender castille soap) didn’t work so well, and he felt that his hair didn’t feel so clean.

so i googled this afternoon and found a really simple receipe.

  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 cup water

that’s it!  and its supposedly effective despite its simplicity.

a tablespoon of baking soda!

so I made a batch.  I like simple recipes so I don’t end up buying loads of stuff which if I don’t catch and control myself – tend to do at times.

What I did additionally included was some essential oils.  10 drops of ‘Awaken the Mind’ by Skin Pharmacy which smells fabulous!  The same one I use in the hb’s hair gel.  It contains rosemary oil which is superb for hair.  so in it went.

add 1 cup of water + 10 drops of your choice of essential oil.  rosemary is good for your hair!

so how does it work?  dunno cos’ i only just made it.  Will update again!

 

UPDATE @ 12 Feb 2013

shampoo’s okay – very watery and no lather so it’s hard to feel that your hair’s cleaned.   The essential oils on the other hand – does make my hair softer though!  I was walking back home one day and felt that my hair feels softer after using the shampoo for about 3 days…

meanwhile, still on the hunt for a reasonable priced shampoo or a recipe for one that lathers better and makes me feel that my hair is cleaner!
