Lately my hair was suffering from excessive dryness. And no matter what I did, they looked dead and dull. I didn’t have any dandruff problem, but there is never a guarantee that I will not get it with this dry hair. So, I made a research and found that honey was beneficial to eliminate these negative signs on my hair. And I decided to make my own homemade honey shampoo.
Before getting deep down in the homemade honey shampoo recipe, I would like to share what I learnt about honey. Honey has acidic nature with pH 4. And our scalp has pH between 4 and 7. This means that honey can help balance the pH levels of the scalp.
Also, using honey on scalp will eliminate dandruff problem and make the hair shine again. This all gave me energy to try my own natural homemade honey shampoo. Additionally, when you use honey in your shampoo, your scalp will produce less oil. This way, your hair will look less oil. After listing the benefits of honey for hair, I will give you my ultimate homemade honey shampoo recipe to you.
Homemade Honey Shampoo Ingredients:
- 1 table spoon of honey
- 3 table spoons of filtered or distilled water
- 1 or 2 drops of essential carrot seed oil – optional
Homemade Honey Shampoo Preparation:
Add honey into water.
Mix the ingredients until you obtain homogenous mixture.
Add the essential carrot seed oil if you are going to use it. (You can skip this step if you are not going to use essential oil).
Place this mixture in a clean bottle.
Enjoy your homemade honey shampoo.
When your homemade honey shampoo is ready, you can immediately start using it. First, you need to wet your hair before the application. Later, take one r two table spoons of homemade honey shampoo and massage it on your hair. This shampoo is made for cleaning your scalp. So, if the ends of your hair do not get enough shampoo, you don’t need to worry about it. Cleaning the roots of your hair with this natural honey shampoo will be enough. After applying the shampoo, rinse your hair. You can also apply homemade hair conditioner for softer hair.
This homemade honey shampoo recipe is only for single use. I prefer to make it this way. Because it is always better to consume all of the homemade products in a short time. If you don’t want to make the recipe every time you need your homemade shampoo here is what you can do.
You can follow 1 honey and 3 filtered water ratios for the recipe. For example, you can add 2 table spoons of honey and 6 table spoons of filtered water. If you want to make more homemade honey shampoo, you can add 4 table spoons of honey and 12 table spoons of distilled water.
If you are going to make bulk mixture, you should be careful about keeping the honey and water combination in a clean and cold area.
