Homemade Honey Lavender Shampoo For Curls
Do your curls feel dry, stressed, and frizzy? If so, you might want to consider making up a batch of this homemade honey lavender shampoo for curls! This shampoo is great for sensitive scalps and curls because it has nothing that curls don't want in it. The four simple ingredients work in harmony to help comfort your scalp. Here's how you make it.
Rosemary because it combat dryness, increase softness, and remove dandruff. The lavender is for stimulating curl growth by encouraging blood flow to the scalp. Finally, diluted castille soap makes a great gentle cleanser.
1/2 cup lavender castille soap
1 and 1/2 cup distilled or filtered water
3 tablespoons raw or fractionated coconut oil
2-3 drops lavender essential oil
3 drops rosemary essential oil
What to do:
If not using fractionated coconut oil, place the coconut oil in a dish and microwave until completely melted. This should take about 30 seconds. In a clean mason jar combined the melted coconut oil and the remaining ingredients. Cover tightly with a lid and shake until all the ingredients are completely blended.
You can store the shampoo in the mason jar, or in a reused shampoo bottle. Before each use, give it a good shake to reincorporate the ingredients.
Hop in the shower and turn your water to warm. You don't want it overly hot, as that can scald your strands and scalp. Allow your curls to become completely saturated. Using the shampoo, massage your scalp in slow, even circles to invigorate your scalp. This will help break up any residual dandruff or residue. Completely rinse your curls with cool water.
