Homemade coconut shampoo
Homemade coconut shampoo is the best thing ever. DIY shampoo is not only easy to make but much better for you too. No toxic chemicals or weird ingredients.
A few weeks ago I posted this Natural home made mosquito spray that I found to be awesome.
Because that post became quite popular and people where also intrigued for the other homemade items I am making so far…here it is. Another one of my homemade concoctions, homemade coconut shampoo.
I have been making this shampoo for quite sometime and we love it.
I don’t know if it is cheaper or not but I really couldn’t care less. You see, there are only 4 ingredients in this, so guess what? I will take my homemade shampoo for any other store bought brands which contains tons of toxic ingredients!!
I have also been making homemade clothing detergent, that we love as well. Maybe, in a few weeks I will post that as well :-)
Well, let me know if you try this and if you like it. We love it so I hope that you do too.
I used an empty castile shampoo bottle to store the new made shampoo. You can use any other type of shampoo bottle. Also using a funnel helps with pouring the liquids in the empty shampoo bottle.
I actually double the amount so that it lasts a bit longer :-) Just shake before each use. It is really awesome. I hope you like it as much as we do!!
Home made coconut shampoo
Yield: 20 shampoos
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 2/3 cup castile soap (I used Dr. Brooner's brand)
- 30 drops essential oil (I used jasmine)
- 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
Combine all the ingredients in an empty shampoo bottle or jar and shake. I used a funnel to pour ingredients in the empty bottle.
You can keep it in the shower for one to two months. Shake well before each use.
NOTE: If you find that your hair remains oily and still heavy use apple cider vinegar to rinse it out. A lot of people using this shampoo recipe have found that the vinegar helps a lot.
