Who needs all the chemicals that come with most shampoos on the market? Why not make your own shampoo bar and bypass the plastic container along with the questionable ingredients!
This recipe comes from The Natural Beauty Solution, a book full of simple, well-photographed DIY recipes. (The book even features a quote by yours truly.)
What You’ll Need
- Strong pale ale or hoppy beer (Gluten-free is optimal. New Planet Beer is on option.)
- Rhassoul clay or kaolin clay
- Jojoba oil
- Avocado oil
- Rosemary essential oil
DIY Shampoo Bar
How to Use Your Shampoo Bars
Wet your hair. Work the bar into a rich lather between your palms. Apply the lather to your head and massage into your scalp. There is no need to apply shampoo to the ends of your hair, simply focus on the scalp. Rinse well and follow with a natural hair rinse. (See 3 Natural Hair Conditioners.)
I recommend a natural sheep horn comb. The keratin of the horn produces a smooth comb that helps prevent unruly hair and evenly distributes the natural oils for richer, shinier hair.
