    Red face Healthy Hair Recipes

    Herbal Shampoo

    * 4 oz of castile soap (plain, peppermint, eucalyptus)
    * ½ oz of rosemary
    * ½ oz of sage
    * ½ oz of nettles
    * ½ of lavender
    * 2000 mg of MSM
    * 8 oz plastic bottle (or any other empty shampoo or soap bottle)

    Mix the herbs in a mason jar, which has a lid. Boil 2 cups of distilled water. Add 3 heaping tablespoons of the mixed herbs into the boiling water. Pull the boiling water and herbs off the stove. Let the herb mixture sit for 30 – 40 minutes. Put the 2000mg of MSM into the herb mixture after 30 minutes of cooling. After 40 minutes and the MSM is melted, strain the herbal mixture into a bowl.

    Pour 2 to 2 1/2 oz of strained herbal tea into the 8 oz plastic bottle. Now, pour the 4 oz of castile soap into the 8 oz plastic bottle. Cap the bottle and shake to mix the ingredients.

    The shampoo is now finished and ready for use. Use this as a base for all of the shampoos you make. You can add different herbs as you learn what these herbs do and how they help your hair. You can vary the ingredients according to your taste. But now you have a shampoo that has no additives that can harm you.

    This is similar to the ingredients that I use in my black soap shampoo. Except, I did not put any MSM in it. I guess that I will do that when I get home.

    I used rosemary, sage herbs. Lavendar, peppermint, and tea tree Eos.

    In the recipe that I use, I put the herbs in the shampoo bottle and let it steep while the grated black soap dissolves. I then strain it out before I use the shampoo.

    Shall I say that I’m supposed to strain it out. I tried it without straining on Sunday.

    I think after a week of steeping and some straining, it will be very nice.



    Yeah, this is my 100th post!!!

    Mix three components of water to one component of vinegar; soak or spray your hair in this solution to remove any shampoo build-up. Wash as regular and you will find hair that is simple to control and style.
