Below is a recipe for an all natural chemical free shampoo
¼ cup distilled water ( deionized water is ok )
¼ cup liquid castile soap ( I use unscented )
½ teaspoon jojoba, grapeseed or other light vegetable oil.
Mix together all the ingredients.
Store in a bottle.
Shake before use.
This mixture isn’t as thick as commercial shampoos – you’ll need to just tilt the bottle over your head.
I am really impressed with how much lather I get from it though
For best results first time you try this, give your hair an intensive cleanse prior to shampooing hair.
If you would like to thicken up the shampoo so its not quite so runny add ¼ teaspoon of xantham gum for every 250ml of shampoo made.
You can purchase xantham gum from most health food shops.
Xantham Gum is all natural and does not leave a film or residue.
