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.

Homemade coconut shampoo

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.


Homemade coconut shampoo

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




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.

    thanks for following. I hope you get to try some of the recipes.


    they don’t taste like olive oil at all. It only has 4 tbsps :-) Just make sure you roll out the dough thin if you try them. Some of my crackers were rather think!!

    I hope the crackers turn out for you. Please report back and let me know how they went :-)

    Thanks for visiting my blog!!

  10. Impressive! I know my kids would love these too.

  11. Mmmm I love homemade graham crackers! Yours look fantastic! And what a cute little helped you had to make these :D

  12. yum! I’ve seen quite a few recipes for graham crackers but I like that your’s has molasses in them! :) I’m curious though as to why there isn’t any graham flour in them? is it because graham flour is not as good nutritionally? what about using graham flour for part of the whole wheat?
    Yep… I’m full of questions today. LOL
    I really am going to try these though. They sound too yummy to pass up. :)

  13. patty,

    Graham flour is a type of whole wheat flour. I have actually never bought it before but I am most certain that you can sub for some in the recipe :-). Let me know how they turn out when you make them!!

  14. Thank you for this recipe! I have bought whole wheat graham crackers and they were awful! I found your recipe searching via Pinterest for whole grain crackers/snacks I could make. I tried these out and my three kids LOVED them! So nice to have another whole grain snack for them. Checking out your FB page, now! :)

  15. Trina,

    thank you so much for your feedback. I am happy your three boys enjoy them :-)

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  16. Do you think I could use honey instead of molasses or is that a pretty crucial ingredient???

    I love graham crackers, and can’t wait to try this!!!!!

  17. I am excited to make these for my kids! Thanks for the recipe!

    I have everything on hand except for three ingredients: whole wheat pastry flour (I have whole wheat flour, coconut flour, almond flour, and spelt flour…no pastry flour, though), molasses, and oat bran. Are there substitutions I can use for these, or should I make a trip to the store? :-)

    Thank you!

  18. You can use the whole wheat flour however since it is not the pastry flour one you may need a little bit less as the regular whole wheat flour will make the dough a bit dryer. Thanks for visiting my blog!!

  19. These look so good! Is there any substitute for the coconut oil? I don’t really care for the flavor of coconut so am nervous to try the oil.

  20. can you make it with less oil?

  21. you’re awesome!!! love every recipe!!! I haven’t done anything yet but soon and will.. this es exactly the food I want my family to eat.

  22. Wow! Was linked here via sugar free mum. I can’t eat wheat so substituted the flour and oat bran with a mix of rice flour, besan flour, tapioca flour, hazelnut meal and puffed amaranth and subbed out the molasses for all honey and the coconut oil for all olive oil (coconut oil doesn’t sit right with me) and they taste amazing! I’m in Australia so not exactly sure if the taste resembles graham crackers but they taste so yummy. I have been struggling to make crackers for some time with my ingredients requirements and although I changed these a lot they are a win! So thanks.
    Just need to work on my more even rolling pin skills and even cutting so they look as perfect as yours.

    • That is awesome. With all of the substitutions you made I am glad they came out good. For sure I would love to try the combo of flours you used in this. It sounds amazing. Thanks for stopping by and letting me know. I really appreciate it :-)

  23. My Dough mixed up too wet….I added 1/8 c more of the flour. It seemed easier to handle,
    After the rollout, hard to spatula off the plastic without distorting the shape, or folding up.

  24. Looks great! Is there something I can use in place of oat bran? Wheat germ maybe?

  25. Hi! Is there anything I can sub for oatbran? I can’t find it anywhere. Thanks :)

  26. Excellent!! Made them tonight and they are amazing! I used flax for most of the oil to increase the fiber, and whey instead of water. Had to add a few extra tablespoons of whey to compensate for the flax, but the dough turned out great. So easy to roll and transfer to the cookie sheet. Will definitely make again! Thanks!

  27. You are the best, I will try each of your recipes and will comment on each too.

    My kid loved the cracker, and thanks again for this wonderful page.

  28. Wanted to make these for my daughter with Celiac. Any way to make them gluten free? Thanks

  29. do you know the serving size and calorie content for each serving?

  30. I made these finally and I’m glad I did, they turned out great! My 3 yr old son loves them! I appreciate that you included the nutritional information. thanks! 
    I put these on parchment and then easily transferred to my cookie sheet. Next i’m going to try with animal cookie cutters…

  31. Very good natural tips for preventing mosquitoes. We are dealers of mosquito net for windows and these nets are also natural. They do not have any harmful chemicals and not have any repellent materials. One should not use mosquito repellents because they are harmful and it can get into our body while breathing. The tips you have mentioned are very true and useful. Thanks.
