Well, I don’t know you but I am concerned about our little planet and I always try to find alternatives for a “greener lifestyle” (please note I dont mean the use of street “green” in any way) But I am also a beauty product addict! I mean who doesn’t want smooth, shiny hair and flawless skin? (and we all know it requires some work)
So I decided to have a lil look online for Green alternatives so here is a compilation of the best I found…
Green Shampoo alternatives
The Vinaigrette: Rub your scalp and massage your mane with a solution of 50/50 distilled white vinegar and water. This homemade “hair-product-residue remover” leaves behind the glistening, polished locks you’ve always dreamed of.
The Shamp-Paste: combine one tablespoon of baking soda with two tablespoons of water Work the paste through your hair and rinse thoroughly, for unexpectedly clean and remarkably shiny hair.
The Caribbean: combine 1 part coconut milk, to 2 parts liquid castille soap (such as Dr. Bronner’s) makes a brilliant, silky smooth lathering SHAMPOO. Combine it with the vinegar rinse for gorgeous, soft, eco-friendly hair.
The Green-Envy: combine some Avocado, and some baking soda. Mash them together with a little bit of water to make a paste. Rinse your hair with warm water first, then apply the paste and rinse it out with cold water. and voila! soft hair!
The Herbal-teacup: combine 1/4 cup of your favourite herbal tea (strongly brewed) and 8 oz liquid castile soap. Stir over low heat until well blended. Store in a capped bottle. TIP: Chamomile tea is a brightening rinse for fair hair.
There you have it, easy to make shampoos free or residue and nasty chemicals! give it a go! (Funky names are optional I was just feeling creative lol)
