I am so excited to finally share with you this 100% natural shampoo recipe, chemicals free, obtained from soap nuts, the same soap nuts you may buy to do your laundry. I’ve been trying it for the past month and I can tell you it leaves my hair strong, thick, shiny, and most of all soft! I do not even need to use conditioner any longer :D! Pls keep in mind that I have thin and straight hair, not frizzy at all…if you’re on the curly side, you may still need to use conditioner 😉 Check out the video-tutorial below for further instructions 😉
Make a little investment that it will last for months. You can even use at least twice or three times the soap nuts before placing them into your compost bin.
First of all, probably you are astonished of what this natural shampoo recipe contains: soap nuts, also known as soapberry.
People in India and Nepal have been using them for hundreds of years to do their laundry, therefore why can’t you make your own shampoo and body wash with soap nuts as well? 😉
Soap nuts are naturally antibacterial, anti-fungal, allergen free and very gentle on the skin and scalp.
I’ve decided to share with you 2 versions: the basic one, super easy to make for those of you who wish to use a natural alternative without adding other ingredients and the shampoo like consistency, a rich version of the basic one for those of you who would like to experiment a natural shampoo with the appearance of a conventional shampoo.
The basic version is not as thick as conventional shampoos, nor does it lather in the same manner, but rest assured that it will leave your hair naturally clean.
*if you do not use preservative, your shampoo will last 1 to 2 weeks at room temperature and 3 to 5 weeks if refrigerated.
*you may add essential oils to increase scalp&hair health (around 40 gtt per 250 ml ) remembering to shake it well before using it.
I personally prefer to add the essential oils directly in the quantity of shampoo I am using ( around 2-3 gtt per half glass).
For the shampoo like consistency recipe I took inspiration from an italian forum “L’angolo di Lola”. I really love it because it has a more consistent texture therefore you get to use less shampoo and because it is enriched with inulin (conditioner), rice proteins (that will add volume to your hair) and glycerin (it will moisturize your hair) which will add more texture and volume to your hair (should you need it ;))
Just to give you an idea on which essential oils to use: rosemary, lavender, lemon and sage essential oils are the best for greasy hair, while tea tree essential oil works miracles with seborrheic dermatitis.
Always remember that a little goes a long way! You can also use this on kids, but beware to keep it away from eyes because it will sting a little like any soap does.
