Simple Shampoo Recipes
You can be green and healthy with natural homemade shampoo. It's actually quite simple to use everyday ingredients to cleanse your hair and enhance its natural beauty. As a green conscious person and a member of a largely diverse family, I've experimented with many hair care options. If your hair is looking dull, dry, or has become unmanageable, these simple and naturally green solutions could be your answer. All of these natural shampoo recipes are environmentally friendly and work on all hair types.
Baking Soda and Vinegar Shampoo and Rinse
If your hair has buildup or you just need an extra freshening shampoo, try washing with baking soda and rinsing with vinegar prior to the water rinse. Simply mix a tablespoon of baking soda with a tablespoon of water. You'll have a paste-like substance. Rub that into wet hair and scalp. Note that it will not be like a regular shampoo and will not produce any suds. This is normal. The suds in other shampoos are actually caused by the chemical composition and aren't a necessary component for this natural hair cleansing solution.
Once you've rubbed in the baking soda paste, it's time to rinse with a vinegar and water solution. Put half water and half vinegar into a cup or recycled container. Pour that through the hair to rinse out the baking soda. Rinse once more with lukewarm water. This will strip out all the build-up and also increase softness and manageability without adding harmful chemicals or weighing down the hair.
Mayonnaise and Avocado Natural Shampoo with Conditioner
Like the baking soda shampoo above, this natural shampoo is not going to suds up like commercial shampoos. But again, this does not take away from the efficacy. Blend together an avocado and ½ cup of mayonnaise. It will be easier if you use a blender. But you can also smash the avocado and stir the ingredients together. Apply the past substance to wet hair. Allow this natural conditioning shampoo to sit in the hair for a few minutes. Be sure you have covered all of your hair from root to tip. Rinse with water. This will have a cleansing and conditioning effect on the hair. Avocado and mayonnaise are both great for shine, manageability, and for providing essential nutrients your hair may be lacking.
Homemade Egg White Shampoo
This is a very simple homemade shampoo. Simply crack an egg and drain out only the whites. Save the yolks for another purpose, so as not to be wasteful. When the hair is wet, apply the egg white to it. It may lather some, like traditional shampoo, but not quite as much. If your hair is longer you may need two or three egg whites for the best results. This homemade shampoo will add shine and nutrients to your hair. It also works great on many pets. Ask your vet first, of course.
