1. Intro Making your own Shampoo: Hello. I'm Sara and the blogger behind. Look what I made. Their share might be a wide project and recipes. About a year ago, I struggled with finding a good chimp who that ticks all the boxes. Organic and sustainable. Understandable ingredients perfect for my hair, a good smell and off course, much too expensive. This Rachael is riel, I tell you guys, but it let me down a past that I don't know happen to share with you how to make your own shampoo and shower tail. That's not only good for you and your body, but also the environment. I've been using my own shampoo for almost a year now, and I tweak the recipe a little year in there to get the best for salt. And I must say, I would never go back. It's the best thing. So in discuss, I will explain in detail what goes into the handmade Shimp. Ooh, how sustainable the ingredients are and what effects they have on your body. If you like to know what goes into a natural shampoo, have never made your own cosmetic or are pro, and to further your knowledge, please enroll 2. 01 About the ingredients and the effects on you and the environment: Let's start this lesson with explanation off the ingredients, altering exactly what I put into my home, a chimp and what effect it has on your body and the environment. Let's start with the cocoa like aside, they put the cocoa black decide. It's amazing reading in our shampoo, and it's affected. So factors basically caused to liquids that are not really admissible, such as oil and water, to be finding mixed. So factors also detergents, and that's what we needed to for There are many different surfactants, but I used to cook like aside because it's Amanda's of them all and perfect for hair and body. It's made out of sugar cane. Yes, sugar and coconut are all renewable resources. This is basically our soap and preferably used for deceased axiomatic and particularly sensitive skin and for baby and public care. So if you have any problems with your scalp or your skin disaffected, want irritated any better? Let's move on to the Jaguar. It's made of war as the name or a D suggests an initial poop. It provides a protective full on the hair versus the scalp and improves culpability. Overall, the hair feels softer and here initial poop. It also increases the full building tendencies and the creaminess of the phone. This is important, at least to me. Since the coca, like aside, is not as phony as other detergents, then we need to choose off one lemon. The lemon not only helps to regulate the page of the hair, but also eliminates that sells implements, hair loss regularly. Use off Limon. Choose helps Olivia come problems such as brittle hair and then another. Plus is the fact that the lemon choose gives their smoothness and shine for our shampoo. It's especially important because the cocoa, like aside, hasn't aged off 11 to 12. Our hair and skin has a page of five, so we need the lemon asset to reduce 50 age of coca black aside and keep it in balance. So they three ingredients. The cooks like aside the hair, hair guar and the lamma choose with them. Water already make the base of our shampoo and could be on the phone or ready form devolution period. However, I have some organic extracts, the further the positive effects off the ship, I'm gonna explain. The three did I use, but remember, does optional so you don't have to use them if you don't want to festival, I use a rosemary extract. It has a stimulating effect on hair growth. It's refreshing, invigorating and circulation promoting. Then I use a bird's extract. It also promotes hair growth. It prevents hair loss and is therefore well suited for stimulating care. Last but not least, I used to classic and hair care. It's a little extract. It gives the hair shine. It reduces greasy nous. It promotes hair growth and nor cious the flaky scalp. So if you only use one extract, I recommend using demanded extract. So this I is free extracts. I used to bend to make my shampoo even more beneficial for my hair. You can use any of these or not. Nothing we need to worry about is a good smell. Until now, all there for mentioning radiance only create a very mutual smell, so we need to add some essential oils. I like my hair shampooed to smell a bit harsh because I get a headache from two sweet smelling scents. So I used in my shampooed thes three. You can only use one, but make sure you just use the same amount off drops that I use for my three essential ways . So here I use rosemary. Essential armed rosemary extract doesn't have smell where it doesn't have a strong smell. So used to rosemary essential this well, I used orange and a spiritually essential, but just use whatever rocks your boat last families I use a little bigger, bigger. It helps me create the very chill like consistency, which I really like for my shampoo. You're eager. If you don't know it is all the cold Japanese challenge in is made out of allergy, and the allegory is also very great for your hair as it finds the moisture in your hair but also get skin. So these are the ingredients I use for my poop. Now let's get started with the risk. 3. 02 Recipe for 500 ml of natural shampoo: it's taken me a few tries to get the right measurements I have here now all ingredients for about 500 milliliters of shampoo. However, you could just calculate them up or down for the right amount of shampoo you need. What we need now is 250 militants off the coca like a site. Then we need 200 milliliters off cold water and to choose off one lemon, we also need to two grams off Egor Egor. I just use the tip off a butter knife to scoop it up two times, and that's just the right amount you need. Then we need three tea spoons off air war and one teaspoon off each off the X extracts that I use. Last but not least, we need essential oils. I use a blend of three essential oils rosemary, orange and patchouli. I used 10 drops off the rosemary and orange oil, and five drops off the virtually. So this is all you need. And as I mentioned before, the coca like aside, the lemon shoes and the hair bar formed the base. You can use what I've been using or adjust to your own needs 4. 03 Preparation: Now let's prepare to shampoo for disporting water into a pot, and it's the Egor Egor. Bring this to the boy, then I turn it off and put it aside to let it cool dog. It should only be slightly warm to the touch. Now all we have to do is mix all the ingredients together. For this, put all the ingredients but the essential orange into a chart. Then take a blender and mix it to finish it off at essential oils and started with the school. As you can see, the picture is now quite foamy and has a creaminess to it. This will set over time and a recommend not boring it into your shampoo Vogtle as it will shrink and in the end only feel half of it. Let it rest for a few hours, and it will get its final consistency. Now. Make your rested for a few hours, and as you can see all the foam is gone. It also turned the color. It's darker, but this is because the opportunity oil, because it gives it this brown color. If you use any other essential oil, you might have a slightly different color so Now we take a vocal. This is a pump bottle, as you can see, because that's what I like to use in my shower. Then we just feel that into the ball, as I mentioned earlier. If you do this to early in the process, the ball bill still be a lot off foam in the picture, and then you will start to settle down over time and half of your bottle will be empty again. But you could do that all the things he used, because the shampoo is so birth and body and health friendly, you can just wash this with your dishwasher or just by hand, and it will just be as any so you can use to wash your dishes that this is it. 5. 04 FAQs about Shampoo Making: Now let me answer if it questions that I had when I made my first trip. First question is, can I use a sharp chill? Aslo? The short answer is yes. I would even recommend it, I guess only ingredients that that are great for your skin. A swell and very environmentally friendly didn't anything you can buy. You even smell great from head to toe. I often get this us from man because they used to have one fits all solutions for body and hair. We, Bowman, are off marketing victims that have all kinds off lotion, shells and creams for all parts or kind of parts of our body. And I think this that's just stupid that we don't we don't need that. So I created this shampoo, although as my job, Jill and I've been using it for months now, and I'm really happy with it. So it's rather one. It's all very well solution. The second question. House of Consistency. What does it look like? Let me start with a short story and you see, create my own shower chill from So it's Aaron soap. And so basically, I just turned so bars into liquid soap and the consistency was really weird. It looked like an excuse. My reference he But it looked like semen, and you don't want to come a little boy into semen to push it. So consistency was really key when I created this ship. Did I know also use this show? And I'm really happy with the result. It has a quiet, clear color. It's it's Save your Paige. It's, uh, it's basically also quite clear. If you don't use the Petroleo as you've seen in the video before, it turns into a big brown. But once you pump it into your hand, you won't even see that color anymore. So I think the consistency now is really great. It looks and feels very nice. This area question. Does it fall? This has been especially important to my partner, who has been my gonna pick in my endeavors of making my own ship because he likes and when it firms very strongly. And as I mentioned before, the Coke, like aside, is not known for creating grateful but the hair glories. So I adjusted the recipe a little. I used a little more guar in later recipes that I created and a little less cook of life aside, and now it creates a really nice for full four are all ingredients natural and biodegradable. Everything will item that I used to make dishing who are out of a renewable and plan based resource that you can even use for babies and toddlers. I especially look for ingredients that rate for your skin but also the environment. And now I can probably say that I think I created my best version of it to give you an idea how natural it iss you can even eat it. I wouldn't recommend it as it might not taste nice, but you could five very sensitive here. A sensitive scalp. Can I use it off course? I would even recommend it. I only using ingredients that are great for sensitive people. But I myself, I'm not very sensitive and never tried it on anybody else who is sensitive or has sensitive skin and scalp or hair. So if you have any experiences with that when making the shampoo and using it in your daily life, please let me know in the comments is all from me. So I hope I answered all your questions. If you have any other questions? Let me know in the comments, and I'll try to answer them as fast as I can. Now, all that's left to do for you is make your own poop and thank you later.
