hair care

recipe: shampoo 

This recipe won't foam up like commercial shampoo. It might take a week or so to get used to. The saponins in the soapberries provide gentle cleansing. Add generously to hair & leave for 2-5 minutes before rinsing out. 

8  soapberries

2tbs dried nettle

2tbs dried rosemary

essential oils of choice (I used rosemary, geranium & lavender)

tips for healthy hair 

Don't wash it everyday. Frequent washing disrupts the oil production & pH balance in hair- either leading it to be very oily or very dry. Too much washing can weigh hair down & changes the structure of the hair. 

Try a shower filter- chlorine & fluoride don't make our hair happy 

Stimulate the scalp by brushing it with a natural bristle comb.
