Since the birth of my eldest son, I switched over from commercial brand shampoos to natural ones. I made this decision to avoid harsh chemicals and irritants. It was important to me that I not expose my family to toxins. Natural shampoos can be very expensive, so I recently found a homemade shampoo recipe, and it is very simple to make. This is a great way to avoid harsh chemicals and be frugal all at the same time!

Recipe for Homemade Shampoo

(This is a recipe for normal hair)

  • 1/4 cup distilled water
  • 1/4 cup liquid Castile Soap – I use lavender scented. You can also use unscented Castile Soap and scent it as desired with your favorite oils. If you are using oils, add a few drops at a time and scent as desired.
  • 1/2 teaspoon of light vegetable oil.
  • Add all of the ingredients in a bottle and shake.
  • You will notice that it will be very foamy at first. Don’t worry, it will settle into a liquid in a few minutes.
  • Use up within six months. Considering there are no preservatives, it will not last as long as a product that does contain them.
  • Enjoy!

Level of Difficulty

– very easy

This is a simple way to go green and remain on a budget. I hope that you enjoy making this recipe as much as I do!
