How Do You Make Natural Shampoo With Natural Ingredients For Hair Growth And Thickness
Do you wish to have healthy, thick, silky, and shiny hair? But due to the modern lifestyle, stress, poor hair care, and the polluting environment, hair starts to weaken prematurely.
Hair fall is a widespread problem these days. Therefore, girls spend lots of money on hair care products to enhance the life of their hair. Unfortunately, many hair care products in the market contain chemicals that further damage their hair – simply a waste of time and money.
We are sharing a simple herbal hair wash shampoo recipe with you that requires only four natural ingredients and is easy to make at home.
Soap Nut (Reetha)
The soap nut is loaded with iron. Iron helps maintain hair health. It has antioxidants and is naturally antifungal, antibacterial, allergen-free, and very gentle on the hair, scalp, and skin. People have been using it for cleansing hair for hundreds of years.
Here’s one most important thing you need to be aware of. The beneficial cleansing properties of soap nuts are only present in the nut’s hull (aka husk). The seed, the actual nut itself, has no value to offer!
Companies sell whole nuts instead of just usable husks or hulls. So when you buy, remember that only the husk/hull is usable.
It contains antioxidants and has antifungal and antiviral properties, which help prevent fungal infection, dandruff and can improve scalp health. It also enhances hair’s natural color by preventing premature greying of hair.
Acacia Concinna (Shikakai)
It provides shine and softness to hair, makes the hair thicker and stronger, slows down greying of hair, and helps treat dandruff.
They contribute to hair growth and help prevent hair loss.
The above four natural ingredients will make your hair strong, long, and thick. This homemade herbal shampoo does not contain any chemicals.
How To Make Natural Herbal Shampoo With Natural Ingredients – For Hair Growth And Thickness?
You will need the following ingredients in dried form in about equal quantities:
(i) Soap Nuts (Reetha): 100 grams of the outer shells
(ii) Gooseberry (Amla): 100 grams
(iii) Acacia Concinna (Shikakai): 100 grams
(iv) Fenugreek Seeds (Methi): 100 grams
(i) While making this shampoo, wear hand gloves.
(ii) First, remove the seeds from the soap nuts. Use only the husk/hull part.
(iii) Combine and soak all the ingredients in water overnight. They will soften by the morning.
(iv) In the morning, add enough water. Now boil the mixture on low heat for about 30-40 minutes.
(v) After boiling it properly, remove it from the heat. Keep it aside to cool down. Then mash all the ingredients well to extract all the goodness of the ingredients. Take care to wear gloves while mashing the mixture with your hand to avoid getting black color stains on your hands. Next, use a muslin or cotton cloth, and strain the mixture while squeezing the pulp completely. The strained liquid part is the shampoo.
(vi) Voila, your shampoo is ready. You can also make this mixture in large quantities and use it multiple times. But remember to store it in an airtight glass jar in your fridge or a cool, dark place.
Important Tip: You can also make dry powder of the above four ingredients, mix them, and store the dry mixture in a cool, dark place. Then take out the appropriate quantity of the mixed powder, add water, boil, and use it when needed.
How To Use The Herbal Shampoo?
(i) You can use this herbal shampoo 2-3 times a week, just like other regular shampoos. You may also use your regular shampoo on other days.
(ii) Use lukewarm water. After shampooing, don’t rub your hair with a towel. Instead, let the hair dry naturally.
Use this shampoo regularly to make your hair grow faster. In addition, this herbal shampoo will help prevent premature greying of hair and relieves problems like hair loss and dandruff.
