homemade honey shampoo
This gentle, nourishing and all natural home made shampoo is made purely from two ingredients, raw honey, and filtered water.
Honey doesn't strip the hair of natural oils, leaving your hair feeling incredibly soft, silky and shiny. It also helps to reduce frizz and fight dandruff.
After using the honey shampoo for a month or so, you will notice that you will be able to go longer and longer between washings, as it normalizes the oil production in your hair. Do try to use raw honey, as regular honey is is processed with damaging levels of heat.
1/4 cup raw honey
1 cup filtered water
a few drops of essential oil of your choice (I like vanilla essential oil)
* feel free to adjust the ratios of water and honey to your liking.
Combine the honey and water in a glass bottle ( I like to use a recycled apple cider vinegar bottle.) Shake well to dissolve.
Wet your hair as usual, then massage a few tablespoons worth on your scalp. Distribute through out the hair, then rinse.
You may also find that you no longer need to use conditioner. Enjoy!
