Beauty products are ever on the increase probably because of the demand. But commercially made products, mostly rely on synthetic ingredients some of which may have negative effects on the skin. Whatever your skin type, you need to be careful with the products you select but more so important if you have sensitive skin. Whether you are getting products for your face, nails, feet or even the hair, you should choose those with more natural ingredients or those that are purely 100% natural.
Pure essential oils are some of the best ingredients you can find and easily use to make your own products at home that are safe and effective. If you have been in search for a shampoo that is good for the hair and the scalp, this lavender and rosemary shampoo recipe may be what you have been looking for. It is a recipe that only needs a few ingredients and a simple process for you to start enjoying the benefits.
The ingredients and their benefits
The rosemary essential oil is great for the shampoo because of its ability to soften the hair. The oil also gives your hair that healthy shine. It makes an amazing ingredient for dandruff and dry scalp.
The lavender essential oil on the other hand stimulates hair growth and at the same time keeps dry scalp moisturized and healthy. The scent of the oil also adds some value to the shampoo making it very pleasant to use even on a regular basis.
Castile soap is needed in the recipe as a reliable hair cleaner. It is best because it does not dry out follicles or strip your hair off important natural oils.
How to make your shampoo
Melt 3 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil in a dish and let it completely liquefy.
Add 1 1/2 cups of distilled water in a mason jar and combine the coconut oil, ½ cup castile soap, 3 drops lavender essential oil and 3 drops rosemary essential oil. Shake vigorously to combine and blend all ingredients completely.
Pour into plastic container and store in a cool dry place for your use. You can use an empty shampoo bottle or find a new pump bottle for easy use.
Directions of use
Squirt a reasonable amount of the homemade shampoo on your palm and rub hands together to lather it up. Massage the shampoo into the hair starting from the roots and making your way up. Pay attention to the scalp as well and ensure that you touch every inch of it.
You can massage for a few minutes before then rinsing off the shampoo. When rinsing, use cold water so you can seal the ends and also get a greater shine at the end. Let the water be as cold as you can tolerate.
Use the shampoo twice a week or as you prefer, but remember not to over wash your hair otherwise you risk damaging it. Keep the shampoo in dry and cool place to prolong life.
