Directions to make your herbal shampoo

Mix the powders with filtered water until it becomes a thin paste. You don’t want it to be too thick. Spritz your hair with a water bottle until all of your hair is damp.

Section off your hair and apply the paste as you would a relaxer, from roots to ends. If you have a lot of hair, you may want to double or triple the ingredients.

Keep the paste in your hair for at least 30 minutes — most leaving it in for as long as an hour. Don’t massage the paste into your scalp because it may be abrasive and cause damage to your hair shaft. Don’t brush or comb your hair either.

Once done, rinse your hair with cool water. You don’t have to condition your hair, since this acts as a cleanser and a conditioner. You can proceed to using oils, leave-in or other products you use for your hair normally. You can store the leftovers in the freezer, just make sure to use within 1-2 months.

About Safiya Elle


Since 2008, I have been embarking on a journey to all things natural. I'm completely chemical-free (body and hair) and because of this, I was able to avoid the big chop, restore my natural curl patterns, grow my hair to tail bone length and clear my chronic acne. Today, I'm an organic vegan, natural health expert, DIY herbalist, DIY beauty, blogger and shop owner. I enjoy helping others with starting and continuing their journeys to natural hair and skin care, and hopefully an overall healthy lifestyle. On my blog, I share health and natural beauty tips, as well as delicious smoothie and meal recipes (I'm all about flava!) that help to promote healthy skin, hair and body from within. Why not maintain our beauty, as well as our youth? Health is the answer!
