Hand-made Shampoo Recipes for Dry Damaged Hair


Avoid the harsh chemicals and unnecessary fillers that commercial shampoos so often contain. Mix your own effective hair care products at home, for better results at a lower price!

Whatever your hair type-dry, damaged, oily, or dandruff-prone-find the recipe you need for salon-quality shampoo below. Plus: natural highlights with a special gentle lightening formula, below!

My hand-made shampoo recipes include vegetable oil for natural moisture that stimulates hair growth without clogging the skin, and liquid Castile soap for convenience. Where each recipe calls for a light vegetable oil, use your favorite: jojoba, sweet almond, avocado, apricot kernal, or coconut oil!
