How To Choose The Right Shampoo For Your Hair Type

When it comes to choosing the right shampoo, there are a few things you need to take into account. First and foremost, you need to think about your hair type. If you have oily hair, for example, then you will need to use a shampoo that is specifically designed for that. The same goes for if you have dry hair. You also need to think about the kind of scalp you have. If you have a sensitive scalp, then you will need to use a shampoo that is designed for that. Once you have considered all of these things, you should be able to narrow down your choices and find the right shampoo for you. If you are still unsure, then you can always ask for advice from a professional. 

4 Types of Shampoos That Can Easily Be Made At Home

Basic Shampoo

You Will Need

• 1/2 cup of water

• ½ cup Plant-Based Liquid Soap from Castile

• 1 teaspoon light vegetable oil or glycerin (omit if the hair is greasy)

• A few drops of your favourite essential oil (optional)

Procedure

1. Combine the ingredients, mix well and pour into a recycled shampoo bottle.

2. Use a palmful of shampoo or less to lather up once, then rinse with warm water.

This homemade shampoo is thinner than commercial shampoo and doesn’t lather as much — but it removes oil and dirt just as well as the over-the-counter stuff.

Tips To Remember While Making Shampoo At Home

Making shampoo at home is not as difficult as it may seem. With a few simple ingredients and a little bit of patience, you can create a shampoo that is tailored to your hair type and needs.

Here are a few tips to remember while making shampoo at home:-

• Start with a base of either liquid Castile soap or glycerin. These will help to create a gentle and effective shampoo.

• Add in a few drops of essential oils for scent and to boost the properties of the shampoo. Choose oils that are appropriate for your hair type.

• Once the shampoo is mixed, it needs to be diluted with water. This can be done by slowly adding water to the mixture while stirring gently.
