Shampoo Recipes: Make your own Shampoo that will help you get rid of hair loss, oily, greasy hair or even brittle and dry hair

It is unfortunate that the damaging effects of these chemical laden products are hidden from us over the short term. Mostly because we are distracted by the synthetic smells and texture that these chemicals leave in our hair.

Hair Loss Shampoo For Normal Hair
This is my maple syrup and carrot seed recipe which works great for normal hair types.


Liquid castile soap (1/2 cup)
Maple syrup (2 tablespoons)
Carrot seed essential oil (5-10 drops)
Castor oil (10 drops)

Mix all of the ingredients throughly in a container of your choice. Pour over wet hair and massage into the scalp for 2-3 minutes before rinsing out thoroughly.

Hair benefits:
The carrot seed oil purifies, detoxifies and stimulates the scalp with its vitamin content and also has anti fungal properties. The carrot also improves circulation and can stimulate hair growth.

Homemade Shampoo For Oily Hair
This is a particularly useful recipe for anyone with greasy or oily or scalp. The ingredients help work together to regulate the production of oils, whilst mopping up and absorbing and excess oil.

If you do have problems with excessively oily or greasy hair this can be fixed by optimising your diet. There are lots of things you can do to reduce this oil production, for example, removing as much processed foods from your diet as possible.

One quick way to remove this excess oil from your body is by taking a greens supplement everyday.

For example, a mixture of wheatgrass powder, spirulina powder, chlorella powder will immediately help to absorb excess oils and are full of chlorophyll which helps deliver oxygen to the follicles.

Anyway, here is the shampoo recipe for greasy hair.


Warm Water (1 cup)
Baking Soda (1 tablespoon)
Apple cider vinegar (1 tablespoon)
Citrus Essential Oil (5 drops)
Grapefruit Juice (1/3 cup)
Grapeseed Oil (2-3 teaspoons)

Mix the ingredients thoroughly in your container of choice, be careful about the apple cider vinegar and baking soda reacting to create extra gas – don’t make the container airtight. Apply to wet hair and massage into the scalp before rinsing out.

Hair benefits:

Baking soda + apple cider vinegar is one of the best and most natural cleansing agents there is, and its perfect for greasy hair where is gently dissolves and washes away excess oils without stripping any essential oils like regular shampoos.

The citrus essential oil is perfect for cleansing oily hair and removing the oily sebum from an unhealthy diet. Citrus contains antioxidants, magnesium, potassium and folate. You can also add a few drops of magnesium oil which will help with hair loss by reducing calcification of the hair follicles.

Grapefruit juice cleanses and revitalizes with high vitamin content and gentle acidic structure.

Shampoo Recipe For Dry and Brittle Hair

Water (1/2 cup)
Liquid Castile Soap (1/2 cup)
Aloe Vera Gel (1/3 cup)
Olive oil (1 teaspoon)
Almond Oil (2-3 teaspoons)
Geranium Essential Oil (10 drops)

Mix the ingredients thoroughly and lather on to wet hair before massaging into the hair and scalp for complete coverage. You can keep the mixture in for 1-3 minutes before rinsing out thoroughly and towel drying. Use within a month or so.

Hair benefits:

The aloe vera contains enzymes and alkalizing properties that help to naturally balance the pH level of your scalp, which helps to promote hair growth and combat baldness. Olive oil helps to hydrate and protect the hair from breakage without being greasy and clogging the skin.
