Commercial Versus Natural Hair Shampoo

There's a BIG difference in the way natural hair shampoo feels compared to drugstore or salon shampoo.
Commercial shampoos generally add chemicals to create a lot of foamy bubbles so the experience feels more effective. In fact, it's not. The sensation of lather isn't really related to the amount of cleanliness at all.

So when you start using these natural hair recipes, give yourself a little time to get used to them - at least a week - so you can see the results and get comfortable with the change in texture.

Basic Shampoo for Natural Hair


  • 1/4 cup (60ml) distilled Water or Herbal infusion (see below)
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) liquid Castile Soap
  • 1/4 tsp Vitamin E (or 1 capsule)
  • 5 drops Grapefruit Seed extract
  • Essential Oil Blend for your hair type
  • Optional: 1/4 teaspoon Grapeseed oil (don't use if your hair is oily or fine; it may make your hair greasy)

Additional Ingredients for Your Hair Type

  • Dry or damaged hair: 1/2 tsp Vegetable Glycerin and 2 tablespoons (30ml) Aloe Vera gel.

  • Oily hair: 1 tablespoon (15ml) Apple Cider Vinegar.

  • Thinning hair: 2 tablespoons (30ml) Aloe Vera gel.

  • Dandruff: 1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 tablespoons (30ml) Aloe Vera gel.


Combine all the ingredients in a 250ml dark glass or PET plastic bottle. Shake before using.
Handy Hint: If you want a thicker shampoo, reduce or eliminate the water. If you eliminate the water, you don't need the grapefruit seed extract - it's a natural preservative that kills any bacteria in the water.
