If you’re interested in how to make shampoo, you’ve come to the right place!
If you’ve tried the No Poo Shampoo Method and it just didn’t work for you, don’t worry. I’ve got the perfect shampoo recipe you can make yourself that’s all natural and won’t break the bank. This is a tried and true recipe; Mr. Money uses it exclusively and loves it!
- 1 Bar of Soap (I used homemade but you can use something like Dr. Bronner’s or Ivory.
- 1/4 Cup of olive oil
- Your favorite essential oil (I used peppermint)
- Water or tea (I used mint tea)
Grate your bar of soap on a cheese grater. Mine looks suspiciously like cheese. It’s not; I promise it’s just beer soap.
Put your grated soap, olive oil, and a little bit of water in the blender. I started with about 1/4 cup of mint tea. Add in about 10 drops of your essential oil.
Blend until it is the consistency that you’d like. You may need to add more liquid.
(Ignore the bubble that looks like a butt. Bubble butt!)
When it’s the consistency that you like, put it into an old shampoo bottle. I like to use a funnel. Now you’ve saved money by making your own natural shampoo and you’ve also kept a bottle out of the landfill.
That’s it! It’s so simple. Lather, rinse, repeat as usual. If you don’t want to go through the trouble of making your own shampoo, the most natural brand I have found out there is Aubrey Organics. I love their Egyptian Henna Shampoo.
