Beware of the toxins in your shampoo…not only damaging your hair, but soaking into your scalp. A couple years ago, I spent hours on the floor on Whole Foods reading every shampoo label…ONLY one met my standards at the time.
Even “Natural” and “Organic” shampoos contain harmful ingredients like sodium lauryl sulfate. Sodium lauryl sulfate is known to be highly irritating and dangerous. It cause damage to your hair and hair loss; and when absorbed into the body may be linked to breast cancer, infertility, and cataracts.
I’ve been searching for the perfect homemade shampoo because the “beauty” industry isn’t very regulated…so there could still be hidden stuff in my shampoo! For awhile I made my shampoo and conditioner from herbs, and sometimes it turned out good and other times not so much. So I’m happy to say I’ve finally found a recipe I like!!! My hair feels AMAZING! It feels thicker, no fly aways, not to dry or to oily.
Ingredient #1 Egg-I’m sure everyone has used egg on there hair from time to time, as have I…The egg feed your hair protein and vitamins, but after a week or so shampoo completely takes all the luster and shine away. For this recipe I highly suggest you get fresh free ranged eggs from someone local (the eggs don’t have a smell and have more vitamins in them).
Ingredient #2 Raw Honey- There’s been a recipe going around about using honey in water to shampoo your hair. Honey, believe it or not is a great cleanser and antibacterial. Some people have issues with this weighing down their hair, others it works great for. We are just using a small amount of honey in this recipe, and mixed with the other ingredients you wont have a bit of problem!
Ingredient #3 Lemon or Apple Cider Vinegar- the skin has a natural Ph around 4, so the lemon or the apple cider vinegar will sooth the scalp, keep away dandruff, and cleanse the hair.
- 1 Free ranged egg
- 1 Teaspoon of Raw honey (Please make sure its local and or organic! Honey is highly contaminated, and may contain high fructose corn syrup otherwise)
- 1/2 a lemon or 1Tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
- Optional- essential oil. Suggested: Chamomile, lavender, or tea tree oil . You can get my favorite essential oils HERE www.livinglibations.com/products/body-care/skin-care#a_aid=50cfcb7e52be0&a_bid=722d7dde
Mix all the ingredients together well with a fork. Apply to hair evenly leave in for 5-20minutes (the longer you can leave it in the better). I don’t find a need to wash my hair more than every other day using this recipe.
Have a Healthy Happy Day,
