To enjoy a homemade, all natural shampoo, you can try out either of these two recipes. To create a special Chamomile shampoo, you’ll want to gather the following ingredients: 1 ˝ tablespoons of glycerin, 4 bags of Chamomile tea, and 4 tablespoons of pure soap flakes. Boil your Chamomile tea bags in 1 ˝ cups of water for 10 minutes. Afterwards, take out the tea bags and pour the liquid left in the pot into a bowl with the soap flakes.

Add your castile soap, aloe vera juice, and olive oil to your herbal infusion and pour into a bottle. Shake and it’s ready to use.

This natural recipe will leave your hair smooth, shiny, and soft.
Certain herbs and fruits help the hair in different ways and even the kind you choose can benefit your particular hair type or hair color.

Redheads can use henna, red hibiscus, or alkanet to maintain their fiery red locks, and blondes can keep their tresses sun kissed by using rhubarb or chamomile. Oily hair can get a boost from pomegranate, cranberry, lemon, and grape. Hair that needs help with body and shine can benefit from pulp and fresh fruit juices to provide the hair and scalp with plenty of nutrients, vitamins, proteins, and emollients. For deep moisturizing properties, you can use currant, apples, or avocado.
