I have become a big fan of Castile Soap. It's totally all natural and has so many uses and one bottle goes a long way.
For this shampoo recipe I used Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap thats Lavender scented.
Hey who says my homemade shampoo has to look homemade. I put a cute label on it so it doesn't just look like a poopy old bottle. I am a cheap witch bitch so I recycled a Bath and Body foaming soap container that I got for a gift a while back. What can I say? It works, lol.
Here is the recipe:
Simple Shampoo Recipe
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup liquid Castile Soap
1/2 teaspoon sunflower or other light vegetable oil
Mix together all the ingredients. Store in a bottle. Use as you would any shampoo, rinse well.
You can add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to create you own scent also if you like. I just use the lavender castile soap myself because the scent is so relaxing at the end of the day and just fills the bathroom with the soothing scent of lavender as I wash my hair. Oooooh Aaahhhh!
*Note: When you make this it is not thick like store bought shampoo which people complained about on a lot of different sites as I was hunting for the perfect shampoo recipe BUT FEAR NOT, I have the perfect solution for that by simply using a bottle for foaming hand soap it works perfectly!
People also bitched about the way thier hair felt after they used a castile soap shampoo recipe and as I scoured a multitude of comments on countless sites, one particular comment stood out from the others. Someone said that it takes about 7 or 8 washes to notice a difference because the castile soap is removing the build up of hair product. So I gave this a whirl and it is really true... the more I use it the shinier and softer my hair gets and my hair has been fried and dyed so much it ain't funny. It has even gotten to the point where if I didn't want to use conditioner I could skip it...but I like conditioner... so I guess I am now off to find the perfect all natural hair conditioner,lol, now thats going to be a task.
