Whatever type of hair you have, you can be sure that there are homemade shampoos that will be perfect for you. In this post, you’ll learn how to make shampoos that are suitable for all hair types.
However, if you ’ re having trouble with particularly dry hair and the shampoos in this post don ’ t provide the required nourishment, I will be writing on that especially for you in my future post! This is because the shampoos discussed here aren’t best for dry hair.
Similarly, if your hair is greasy or overly oily, I recommend you get started with these shampoos. These recipes include ingredients which will strip away excess oil and grease without over-stimulating your scalp and hair follicles, meaning that your hair should regain its natural balance after just a few washes.
One more point before we proceed; I’ve created these recipes as I believe the ingredients combine well together and give shampoos which both smell great and leave hair feeling fantastic. However, after you have some experience, don’t be afraid to experiment and adjust the recipes, adding and subtracting ingredients to suit your own particular tastes. Making homemade shampoos is a lot like cooking; experiment and tweak the recipes to suit your preferences.
For now, let’s get started with Calming Chamomile and Rosemary Shampoo.
