For healthy and beautiful hair Homemade Herbal Shampoo Recipe

Homemade herbal shampoo is a great choice for those looking for a more natural hair care alternative.  Choose to make it completely from scratch, or start with a natural base soap for a simpler recipe.

For now though, I’ll share this simple herbal shampoo recipe with you… let’s start with the herbs and ingredients.

Chamomile – A natural herbal treatment for dandruff and scalp issues, chamomile also helps increase hair shine and boost hair growth.

Calendula – A great all-around herb for nourishing the skin, it’s no different for the scalp.  It’s added to nourish the skin on your scalp and naturally condition it to prevent dry skin.

Rosemary – Used in natural hair growth formulas, rosemary promotes good blood circulation to the scalp and helps ensure healthy hair follicles.  It also adds a delightful scent to this herbal shampoo.

The recipe suggests adding a very small amount of either argan oil or jojoba oil, both of which are perfect for conditioning hair without leaving it oily.
