Did you know that the shampoo you use to nourish your luscious locks is actually not good for you, as well as harm the environment? Yes, shampoos (in fact, all soaps for that matter) contain a chemical called surfactants that lead to the foaming of the soap. These surfactants spend years in our environment, harm marine life and our ecology.
But if you’re worried we’ll ask you to stop using shampoos, don’t fret. We’re simply suggesting a healthier, natural and eco-friendly way out – using organic shampoo instead of regular ones.
All you’ll need to make your own natural and really healthy shampoo are the following – shikakai, soapnut and reetha. Shikakai nourishes your hair, makes it look healthy and is even known to help prevent hairfall. Soapnut helps add the suds and reetha gives it that natural bounce and shine. All these ingredients are available online, as well as most local grocery stores and organic products stores.
How To Use And Make
You can buy the ingredients in powdered form or buy them whole and grind to a powdered form at home. Add all the ingredients in equal quantities. If you have oily hair, add some extra reetha to the mix. Next, add a few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice to this powder mix and add warm water to make a thick paste.
Your organic shampoo is ready. Use it as you would a normal shampoo and rinse off with water.
