This wonderfully scented homemade Lavender Rosemary shampoo with essential oils is a great way to skip all the added ingredients that you may want to avoid in commercially made beauty products. This recipe is made up of 4 simple ingredients, each chosen for the natural benefit they bring to your hair and scalp. Rosemary leaves your hair soft and shiny, and is also great for dry scalp and dandruff. Lavender is wonderful for dry scalp and stimulates hair growth. Castile soap, when diluted properly, is a great ingredient for cleaning your hair. While it is a much lower sudsing ingredient than you are used to, believe it or not, that is a good thing, because sulfates strip your hair of natural oils and dry out your follicles. In addition, washing your hair everyday strips it of its natural oils, unless we get dirty or sweaty we only wash our hair about 3 times a week and just rinse the other days.
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup liquid castile soap
15 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
15 drops of Rosemary Essential Oil
Mix them together in a bowl and put it in an empty shampoo container. Replace the shampoo after 30 days.
You can also add a spoonful of Vitamin E or Jojoba Oil (or both) to this for dry hair.
