Natural shampoo recipe for dry scalp

It’s simple. No one cares more about your pocket book or your hair than you. That’s why you’re here. That’s why you want to make your own shampoo. And that’s why you want to make more of your own products. So do we!

When aerosol dry shampoo came on the market, it was a life-changer for me (I was in college at the time, working and studying, and often running late to both). What an amazing invention! Until you look at the ingredient label…

If you like your store-bought shampoo but would like to add to it a little, the essential oils that old-timers relied on for hair care really do work.
