This is a very easy herbal shampoo that gives your silky, healthy and shiny strands. Ready for the recipe, ladies?
This is not your traditional shampoo recipe. But rather, herbal mix used for hair wash in the eastern countries. It can be quite clumsy to use this. But the results are worth the effort – just look at the long, shiny and thick hair Asians flaunt to get an idea!
Let’s take a look at the recipe, shall we?
Shikakai Powder – 1 Tsp.
Reetha Powder – 1 Tsp.
Fenugreek Powder – 1 Tsp.
Ground Hibiscus Flower– 1 Tsp (dry)
Hibiscus Leaves Powder – 1 Tsp.
Curry Leaves Powder – ½ Tsp.
Amla Powder – ½ Tsp.
Neem Leaves Powder – ½ Tsp.
Lemon Peel Powder – ¼ Tsp.
Pepper Powder – two pinches
Just add these ingredients in a small bowl and add enough water to make a paste. Voila!
How to Use This?
Apply coconut oil or any other oil you use for your hair liberally. I also add a few drops of Argan Oil to coconut oil before applying to my hair and scalp.
Let it sit for about ½ hour to 1 hour. Wash off with the paste we prepared.
Apply the paste to your scalp and then your hair strands. Let it sit for 3 – 5 minutes and rinse off.
This mixture will froth like your regular shampoo, but not too much. The herbal paste can be a little difficult to fully remove from your hair. But your hair will be shiny and smooth after rinse. Trust me – your hair will thank you for this!
Tips to Tweak the Recipe
You can skip the Fenugreek if washing your hair is difficult. Other ingredients aren’t as sticky as fenugreek! But Fenugreek is one ingredient that does wonders to get your silky hair, besides other benefits.
You can add Tulsi Leaves & Eucalytus Oil Leaves to the mixture. You get dried and powdered leaf powders for both in herbal stores.
If you can substite any of the ingredients especially hibiscus leaves or flowers or both, Tulsi (Holy Basil) or Eucalyptus Leaves, you can grind them in your mixer and use. The results are better for fresh ingredients, though dried powders work well too.
Why Use This Herbal Powder?
This is a traditional recipe that works wonders for your hair and deals with most hair problems and scalp problems, while also promoting healthier and strong hair. It also curbs hair loss and hair thinning. Don’t we all want that?
Both men and women can use this recipe. I have always used this recipe as a kid and had long and strong locks. If you have a tough time using these powders, prepare a watery paste of the ingredients, let it sit for 30 minutes and strain the recipe using a muslin cloth. Then use it like a shampoo! We will add a detailed recipe for this soon.
