Discover homemade Aloe Vera shampoo that’ll stop your itchy scalp and make your hair soft. It’ll also help to treat your dandruff to avoid those embarrassing moment of uncontrolled itching out there, in the public glare.
Often times, I've discovered that most of the shampoos sold across the counter or in shops contain chemicals that can bother you, especially if you have a sensitive skin. Add to that, they can also be potentially harmful to the environment. So, if you're really conscious about the products that you use and how they affect the world around you, then you may want to consider making your own Aloe shampoo.
And, it's quite easy and cost effective to make your own shampoo at home. All you need, is to locate a shop that sells health foods, natural medicine supplies or even just an organic grocery store. And you're half way done in producing your homemade shampoo.
Of course, who doesn’t know that Aloe Vera is nature’s wonder plant? Or that it’s great for treating burns, cuts, insect bites, and wide range of ailments and skin conditions? It also helps to make a ‘cool’ shampoo that’d assist you in getting rid of all your hair and scalp issues.
To make your own Aloe shampoo you'll need the following items:
You can find all of these items at your local health food store. But, if you opt to use ready-made gel from a store instead of from the plant for your shampoo, then, make sure it is 100% pure gel.
To get the gel from the plant itself, slice the leaf open on the long side and pull apart the two halves.
Scoop out the gel from the inside of the aloe leaf using a spoon. And, ensure you don't allow the
cut Aloe Vera leaves to stay over four hours before using. Otherwise, oxidation would render the leaves useless.
Once you have all of your ingredients in place, it's now time to measure:
Gently stir them together. Add a few drops of essential oil and you've got yourself, a half cup of homemade shampoo.
Better still, if you want more quantity, you can adjust the quantities of your ingredients as you see fit to make as much Aloe Vera shampoo as you want. Pour the shampoo into the jars you have at hand, wipe them clean and seal them.
Of course, your Aloe shampoo is now ready to use or as a gift to someone special.
Aloe shampoo is mild enough to use on a daily basis. It's perfect to use for dry hair, dry and itchy scalps and dandruff problems. Make sure you shake the bottle before using your Aloe Vera shampoo to mix the ingredients if they settle.
If you want to add additional benefits to your Aloe Vera shampoo or have a specific condition you want to treat with it, research essential oils. Food grade essential oils are the best to use as they are the purest on the market.
