Homemade Shampoo for Oily Hair
What you Need
- 2.5 tbsp bentonite clay (where to get it)
- 1 tbsp liquid castile soap (where to get it)
- 2 tbsp rose water (where to get it)
- 5 drops rosemary essential oil (where to get it)
- 7 drops tea tree essential oil (where to get it)
- Non-reactive (non-metal) bowl & whisk
- Into a non-reactive bowl, dump in your bentonite clay. What I mean by non-reactive is a non-metal bowl: use plastic, wooden or ceramic bowl because metal reacts with the clay and renders it ineffective.
- Now add your rose water and slowly whisk it up until your form a smooth lump-less paste.
- Next add the liquid castile soap and mix it in too.
- Lastly, add the rosemary and tea tree essential oils and mix until everything is well combined.
- Your homemade shampoo for oily hair is ready!
- To use, take the bowl to the shower with you and work it into a wet hair and scalp. Leave it to suck up the stale and excess oils for about 2 minutes, while you shave/wash the rest of your body.
- Rinse off with warm water then cold water. To condition, you can use this DIY Hair Rinse for Oily Hair. It works as a good conditioner for oily hair! You can also use a tiny smudge of coconut oil to condition.
