Wash your hair with a natural shampoo. Homemade shampoos – tested recipes. Every day the boring commercials on TV are trying to prove that exactly that “miracle shampoo” will turn your thin and unruly hair into an incredibly beautiful and lush hair in just one week, which will act as a magnet to attract many glances filled with admiration. Is this true?
After reading the composition of such a shampoo (carcinogenic parabens and sulfates), you will reluctantly start to have a doubt. Who wouldn’t? The benefits surely outweigh the risky sacrifices.
Make a natural shampoo at home, and with that you will not affect your home budget. This makes no great obligation for women but the benefits of the homemade shampoo will surpass the ones from most of the shampoos which are bought in the store. Another important point to note than many people already realize is that it is completely unnecessary to wash your hair every single day. The shampoo industry would have us believe such things to sell more product but what they are really doing is trying to sell you another separate product.
“What our shampoo dried out your hair? Here, just buy our conditioner, and our hairspray, and our etc…” See through the scheme and start saving money and making your own superior shampoo!
They are easy to prepare and after washing your hair with a natural shampoo it will really become beautiful, healthy, and shiny.
Natural homemade shampoos are certainly safe to use and will cost you less than the factory ones. In a few simple steps you can make them by yourself. It’s easy. Here’s how:
1.Shampoo with gelatin
Gelatin is extremely beneficial for the hair because it contains collagen, a connective tissue protein. Collagen is – a true “designer” of the hair, skin, muscle and blood vessel walls.
Stir 1 egg yolk and 1 tablespoon of edible gelatin. Stir slowly, to avoid lumps and then apply to wet hair. Leave it for 5-10 minutes and then comb the hair in the shower with warm water.
This composition contains a lot of proteins and the hair becomes beautiful and lush. You can also create a concentrated solution of gelatin: 1 tablespoon gelatin with 3 tablespoons water and add another yolk.
For strong, rich, and shiny hair, add a bag of gelatin in a smaller bottle of your shampoo. Before each wash, shake well and use it as you usually do.
2.Wash dry hair with eggsWhen the hair is dry and “brittle” it is very useful to wash it with eggs because the egg contains lecithin and almost all of the amino acids which protect the hair from damage and eliminate dandruff. A whole egg is typically used. Mix the yolk and white in a small amount of warm water. Put the foam of the egg on wet hair and wash it without soap. Then rinse your hair with warm water and after that wash it with water and vinegar (1 tablespoon of vinegar to 2 liters of water). In this case it is very useful to rinse your hair with herbal tea, which will give your hair an incredible shine.
My favorite, most convenient and safest way of washing hair is with an ordinary baking soda, which is usually a single “phenomena” in our lives. It is cheap and can replace shampoos, gels, fresheners and any cleaning product and it can also help with the washing in our households. But what is most surprising – soda is used as an agent for healing the whole body. It acts like an alkaline, so when it is mixed with water it is excellent for the hair and body washes, it also neutralizes acids which are released through our skin. Baking soda is not just safe, but it is also very useful. Therefore…
3. Recipe for shampoo with baking sodaFor hair with medium length and density 1 tablespoon of baking soda is sufficient. In the beginning, dissolve in hot water because it is easier to dissolve than adding cold water. Quantity – total cup of 200 ml. All that you need to do is actually very easy. I always keep one package of baking soda in the bathroom and I need less than a minute to make this solution. Apply the solution of sodium bicarbonate and water to wet hair and gently massage over the entire length then rinse. Rinsing with apple cider vinegar after flushing the baking soda out with water yields some extra benefits as well! You can rinse your hair with “acidic” water (2 liters of water, add a tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice).
4. Shampoo with mustard. This recipe is especially good for oily hair.Take 1-2 tablespoon of mustard powder and dissolve in 1 liter of warm water. Apply to your hair and massage. If you feel a burning sensation – do not rush to rinse immediately. This effect causes a blood flow to your skin on the head and stimulates hair growth. After a few minutes, rinse your hair with plenty of water.
“Mustard mask” allows you to solve the basic problem – oily hair will be less oily and dry hair will be intensively “fed” (new hair), besides that this mask contributes to an even greater density of the hair and eliminates its loss. By the way, oriental beauties thank the mustard mask for their lush hair.
We highly recommend this extremely efficient homemade shampoo for faster hair growth.
These were the simple and effective homemade shampoo recipes. There are other recipes – people are washing their hair with ashes, flour, beer yeast … But I’m not sure if you want to try it on yourself.
I hope that I was able to show you that it is possible to wash your hair without a shampoo from industrial production, which is easily replaced with affordable and safe natural means.
In this way, you will not only pay tribute to the power of your hair and protect it from the consequences of toxic substances, but you will also benefit your health.
I will be glad if you share your experience after washing your hair in a natural way with other readers, because knowledge multiplies by sharing.
