Dandruff can be so annoying, especially if your loving partner is higher than you are, or, you just love to wear black clothes and suits on work.
Many of the shampoos that claim to be anti-dandruff, actually don’t help, and if you use them for too long, they can even make your scalp even dryer, causing continuous appearance of dandruff.
The natural cosmetics can be a real slap on your pocket as well! I came across a natural dandruff shampoo that costs 30$ per single bottle of 400ml. can you believe it?!
I mean, even if you could afford it, wouldn’t you rather spend those money on something else and make the natural shampoo at your own house?
Here’s an awesome home made recipe for an anti-dandruff shampoo, that has it all: it’s cheap and fun to make, it’s has a super-awesome smell and it helps the dandruff issue. It costs only 5 dollars to make it and you won’t have to make plans for the evening also! it’s a win-win situation.
- 3.5 ounces of liquid castile soap
- 1 ounce of distilled water
- 1 ounce sweet almond oil
- 1 ounce of melted shea butter
- 4 ounces of melted coconut oil
- 20 drops of rosemary essential oil
- 5 drops of eucalyptus essential oil
First of all, to get a shampoo out of all these ingredients, start with combining the distilled water and the castle soap in a sealable container, or a shaker bottle.
Then add the sweet almond oil and shake pretty well, because the oil needs to mix well with the water. The melted coconut oil and shea butter should be combined together and then put in the sealed container to mix with the rest of the ingredients.
The essential oils in every mixture are always added in the end. There goes your shampoo! It took no more than 15 minutes, right?
Then, before every use, shake the bottle well, because this is not a chemical based shampoo and is not always in the same physical condition. Just make sure this shampoo stays on your scalp for longer than the others shampoos you’ve used, because it needs to moisturize the skin on your head and scalp, thus, preventing the showing up of dandruff.
And it’s better to leave out the conditioner while you use this natural based soap, because the chemicals in the conditioner can take out the natural oils and moisture that the natural shampoo contains and gives to your hair.
A caution for the end – The natural made shampoo will be less thick than the store -bought shampoo. Make sure it doesn’t get to your eyes!
