Over the last couple of weeks I’ve tried to be more conscious of things that I buy on a regular basis — all the packaging, the hard-to-pronounce ingredients, and I’ve been surprised by how much stuff enters my body and home that doesn’t need to be there.
Last night I decided to try DIY shampoo with ingredients that I’m comfortable with and less single use plastic involved. I found a recipe here and got mixin’!
Following the recipe, I simply mixed about 1/4 C coconut milk, 1/3 C liquid castile soap & a spoonful of almond oil (mine was not true almond oil, but it’s all I had!).
This recipe came together in about 2 minutes! I poured the mixture into an old soap container with a pump dispenser.
It is thinner that typical shampoo, but it lathers pretty well and smells great! Have you made your own shampoo? Please share!
