Healthy and beautiful hair improves your looks and makes your personality charming. This is one of the first things that people notice about you.
So, your hair can make an exceptionally vital first impression on people – depending on their health and luster. The appearance of your hair is directly proportional to the kind of shampoo you use.
Mainstream shampoo that lines the shelves in most stores is not good for our hair or skin. This article will explain why it is a good idea to make homemade shampoo.
What is available in the Market?
Today, there are thousands of shampoo products available on the market. It is no surprise to tell you that almost all shampoo products are filled with synthetic cleansers and chemicals, which strip hair of its natural oils.
When you use shampoo products containing chemicals, you will see the weakening of your hair.
It will become dry, brittle, the ends will split and it may even split higher up into the individual strands.
Why Avoid Synthetically Made Shampoos?
Did you know that most shampoos that line our supermarket shelves contain ingredients that are both harmful to you and your environment too?
The most serious harmful ingredients are sulfates.
Sulfates are incredibly strong detergents that cause a chemical reaction causing them to bond with water and the sebum on your scalp. This is particularly bad for people with a sensitive scalp because the sulfates irritate the skin with dryness and itching.
When we rinse the product out of our hair, the sulfates take our natural hair oils with them. Natural oils promote hair growth, health, and hygiene.
In addition, this extreme process of cleaning can also damage the hair and promote frizziness. These are characteristics that most of us would prefer to avoid.
So what is the solution? Here at About Going Green, we believe that the solution is to make homemade shampoo. It is simple, easy and good for the whole family.
It is an enjoyable activity to do with loved ones. Being creative is good for the brain. You will also have the opportunity to discuss the importance of using natural products and teach your children or loved ones about self-care.
It is easy to assume that it would be more expensive to switch to natural shampoo. This is because the products are of a higher quality and usually this would be more expensive.
However, when you make homemade shampoo this is not the case. Your initial purchase of the separate ingredients will likely be more expensive than what you would ordinarily spend on shampoo.
However, do not threaten because you will have the supplies to make a homemade shampoo that will last you and your family a long time.
There are many benefits offered by homemade shampoos. First and foremost, they are natural and affordable.
The best thing about them is that you can choose the right ingredients according to the hair problem you are facing – thus achieving your personalized hair goals.
If you have a dry scalp you can add Tea Tree Oil as this is known for promoting scalp health. Lavender increases the number of follicles resulting in thicker hair.
Natural and Affordable
Instead of synthetic ingredients and chemicals, you make a homemade shampoo with all-natural ingredients, which can be found at home.
For example, some ingredients are olive oil, soda, and honey – and these are really beneficial for soothing and calming your scalp and removing the pesky irritation as compared to store-bought shampoos.
Choosing the right type and natural ingredients will save you from harmful chemicals that otherwise could cause detrimental effects on your health.
No matter your specific hair requirement or condition, you can make a homemade shampoo product that will suit your personal needs.
The quality and naturalness are the main difference between homemade and store-bought hair care products including shampoos and conditioners.
Homemade shampoo is made from natural ingredients. These components will infuse your scalp, hair follicles, and cells with natural minerals, oils, and herbal extracts.
For example, tea tree is a natural ingredient that you can use to make a homemade shampoo – can help address a number of scalp conditions such as dandruff and irritation.
If you want to stimulate healthy hair, we recommend you to make a homemade shampoo with essential products such as coconut oil and Aloe Vera – as both are natural moisturizers.
For an enhanced shine, it is recommended to use something like Shea butter or olive oil.
How to Store Your Shampoo
Although you can store a homemade shampoo in a regular shampoo container, the best way to store it is in the glass container. Glass is inert, which means there are no chemicals that can leach out in the shampoo.
Glass containers are usually made from non-toxic material and are highly reusable – so you will have peace of mind and tranquility in your heart for contributing to a healthy environment and play your role in eco-friendly climate.
Therefore, we recommend you make your own homemade shampoo because not only will it make your hair strong and healthy but this way, you can protect your scalp from harmful synthetic chemicals such as parabens.
