Before going into the steps for making homemade natural shampoos, you should be clear about why you should make the switch to this option.
Better For Your Hair And Scalp
Commercial shampoos and conditioners contain a long list of chemicals with strange-sounding names. What these companies put in their personal care products are not fully regulated by the FDA. This means that the potentially harmful effects of these chemicals are not even known. Many of these products have been found to contain ingredients that are linked to allergies, immunotoxicity, cancer and more.
When you go fully natural, you will make a shampoo that is safer for yourself and your family because you will only be using natural ingredients.
Although this point may be subjective, it is very valid for a lot of people. Many people have discovered that their hair feels and looks better when they switched to homemade natural shampoo. A few others have not been so lucky. How well DIY shampoo works is dependent on your hair type and the recipes that you use.
This is why many recipes in this book have been clearly labeled so you can know the hair type they are most suitable for.
Be ready to experiment by trying a few of these recipes before making up your mind about homemade shampoo…and there is a good chance you may be hooked from the first try!
Like most DIY home projects, making your own shampoos will save you a lot of money. Homemade shampoo is a fraction of the cost of commercial store-bought shampoo. This is especially beneficial if you have a large family.
Good For The Environment
When you wash your hair, the product goes down the drain. Using commercial shampoo means you are adding more chemicals to the pollution of the environment. This is not so with homemade natural shampoo because all the ingredients are completely biodegradable.
Good For Your Home
The longevity of the pipes in your home can be reduced by harsh chemicals. Although the damage caused by pouring harsh chemicals down the drain will happen over time, it will still be money out of your pocket. Making your own shampoo at home will help you to prolong the lifespan of your plumbing and also protect the planet.
