DIY Honey Shampoo
Serves: Enough shampoo for 1 use - prepare as needed
 
Want to ditch the chemicals in regular shampoo and renew your scalp? Try this simple two-ingredient Honey Shampoo. Mix it up on a per serving basis to prevent spoilage.
Ingredients
  • Raw honey (also called "unpasteurized" honey), I recommend this one
  • Filtered water (see Instructions for measurements), I use and recommend this filter
  • A few drops of essential oils, such as carrot seed oil, optional
Instructions
  1. Make the shampoo "single serving" basis to prevent spoilage. Here's the basic ratio, but you can adjust it as desired: 1 Tbs. raw honey and 3 Tbs. filtered water. If necessary, slightly heat the mixture over very low heat to help dissolve the honey. Yes, this is really watery... that is how it is supposed to be.
  2. If desired, add a few drops of essential oil. I like adding two drops of lavender essential oils and two drops of carrot seed oil. The essential oils add a light fragrance and also help with any flaky scalp issues. The carrot seed oil (found here) is very nourishing to the hair.
  3. Wet hair, then massage a few tablespoons of the honey shampoo on the scalp. Massage well to distribute over the scalp. Don't worry about getting the mixture on the ends of the hair, just the scalp area. Rinse well. No need to follow with any conditioner.
  4. If desired, you can follow with a DIY apple cider vinegar rise, recipe and instructions found here.
