Most shampoos on the market are overpriced and contain harsh chemicals, detergents, surfactants, etc. The most well known unwanted ingredient being Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate (sodium lauryl sulfate). There are many ways to make your own (sulfate-free) shampoo and the following recipe is the most simple and that can be done. This can save a lot of money especially if you have a large family to bathe.

Simple Organic Homemade Shampoo:

The recipe is simple. In a bottle you will mix
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1/4 liquid Castile soap
  • 1/2 teaspoon of oil (tea-tree, jojoba, olive oil, grapeseed, etc)
  • Desired amount of scented oils.
- Other ingredients may be added for different effects. Add 1/4 cup of Aloe Vera and 1 teaspoon of glycerin to the mix for a hydrating hair solution. 

Try adding 3 tbsp of apple juice, 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar, and 6 ground cloves for a dandruff solution.

Remember to shake well before each use!
