Homemade Shampoo – How To Make Homemade Shampoo


By Prerana,

Yesterday I shampooed my hair with a home made shampoo recipe, which I do once or twice in a month to give rest to my hair from harsh chemicals of readymade shampoos. During the steps, I was also taking pictures so that I can share it with you girls too here. So here goes my steps..

Take some bits of any mild herbal soap in a bowl. Here I have taken khadi haldi-chandan mint soap which is herbal. You can also take shikakai soap which is readily available in market.

STEP 2. -Pour half cup of warm water in it to dissolve the soap.

STEP 5.Stir well and mix all the contents into fine soup like consistency. (Note: my mom used to mix 1egg also in this mixture to give protein treat to my hair when I was a child, but here I didn’t used it coz I don’t like the egg smell! If u wish, u could add it too)

STEP 6.-Apply it on your scalp part by part and work up lather. Though this will not lather as much as your normal shampoo but will thoroughly cleanse your hair.

This is the final result I got…

Though wet, but I guess my camera is successful to capture clean hair pic.
