I’ve made this shampoo recipe a few times now and have been very happy with the results. It doesn’t cost much, and is really easy to make.
1/4 cup hot water
1 tablespoon dried rosemary
1/4 cup liquid castile soap
2 tablespoons sweet almond oil
few drops of tea tree oil
1/4 teaspoon essential oil(optional)
Steep the dried rosemary in the hot water for a few minutes stirring occasionally to help release the fragrance. Combine everything else in a small spray bottle (The spray bottle helps regulate the amount used, since, it is so runny.) After the rosemary has steeped add the wate to the mixture.
To use you may keep it in the shower. Just shake it up before spraying on your head. Massage scalp for a few minutes before rinsing out. With my short hair I do not need a conditioner, and my daughter’s fine hair does well too. Longer, thicker hair may need a conditioner to keep tangles at bay.
