    homemade herbal shampoo's:

    1).One of the easiest ones to make is the one with shikakai. Wash 200 gms of dried olives and 200 gms of shikakai in cold water and soak them in an iron vessel.The next morning, boil the decoction for about 10-15 minutes. Mash the thick residue into the water and strain. Use this to wash the hair. This shampoo leaves the hair soft and silky.

    2).You can also make a home-made herbal shampoo by using reetha and shikakai. Soak 125 gms each of reetha, shikakai and amla in 1 litre of water. Keep it aside for about 24 hours. Boil and allow the mixture to cool. Strain and use it to shampoo the hair. It is a very good way to wash the hair without harming it.

    3).Take some dry soap nuts(reetha) and soak them in water overnight.Mash them in the morning and strain the soapy solution.Add a tsp of shikakai powder and wash your hair. If you are unable to make the shampoo cleanser at home, use this infusion recipe.Prepare it and mix in the shampoo you use. B.To make the infusion, boil two handful of mint leaves in one and a half glass of water for 20 minutes.Strain the solution and mix in a 300ml bottle of shampoo.

    4).Fresh soap nut shampoo (reetha shampoo) Ingredients: A handful of reetha nuts A handful of shikakai pods 50 gm of dried amla 50 gm of dried brahmi leaves 250-400 ml. of water. Method: Boil all these ingredients together. Mash strain and use it to shampoo your hair. Reetha, shikakai, amla and brahmi impart a natural cleansing and glossy finish to any type of hair.

    5)Take 2.5mls/grams each of shikakai, amla, bhringraj and soapnut extract and add them to 240ml slightly warm water. If desired, you can add 2.5gms of neem extract to this mixture if you have dandruff or scalp problems. Once completely mixed, use this mixture to wash hair. Rinse well with warm water. You may want to then adjust the pH to 5.5 with either lemon juice or Vinegar. Keep this in the refrigerator between uses.

    Take 10 - 15 leaves of hibiscus and one hibiscus flower. Boil them in a glass of water for 5 min and it will become a sticky green liquid..

    Apply a little oil before bathing .After wetting hair apply hibiscus shampoo. If you have dry hair certainly apply some oil. Otherwise it may make it more dry later. Start rubbing on scalp and hair with this shampoo. Do this for five min. Then rinse hair normally. Here you can see and feel the difference. The hair becomes soft but a little dry.. I f you hair is dry naturally apply oil before bath..

    Variation to this you can add soak some methi seeds overnight and grind them in the mixie into a fine paste and mix it with the hibiscus leaves paste and massage..

    Rather than spending heavily on herbal shampoo available in the market you can easily make it at home. Here is the recipe for one such shampoo which I try often at home.
    • Take two cups of water in a bowl and bring it boil
    • Add 1 tbsp of rosemary leaves to the boiling water, further to this add I tbsp of dried chamomile and chopped peppermint leaves
    • Boil it for 20 minutes further and then remove the pot from the stove and cool it
    • Take a strainer and separate water and herbs
    • To the strained water add 2 tbsp of olive oil base soap and 1 tsp of lavender oil

    People after multiple usages of chemical based shampoos have taken refuge to natural products for healthy hair. It may sound old while talking about traditional techniques to retain beauty of the hair but its effect is harmless unlike the chemical ones. If you want to try with amla based shampoo then you can make it easily in the following methods:

    • Take different containers to soak amla, shikakai and reetha in water like a semi-liquid paste.
    • Finely mix all the ingredients and allow it stay for overnight.
    • To a separate container place a cotton cloth over its mouth to sieve out the solid particles from the liquid.
    • Wash your hair with the filtered mixed liquid.
    • It will not only work as shampoo but will help nourish your hair cuticles as well as the scalp.
