One thing is certain: Shampoo is not just shampoo. In the supermarket there are products for every hair problem and every hair type.
You’ll be standing in front of the shelf for minutes asking to buy even the best for your mane.
And our hair is not so demanding at all.
In principle, they are very happy with few natural care substances. Superfluous parabens, microplastics, silicones and fragrances in conventional shampoos are more harmful to your hair than to care for it.That’s why we make Aloe Vera Shampoo ourselves! Goes completely fast and does the hair good!
Why Aloe Vera Hair Shampoo is Good for Hair
Aloe Vera Shampoo is ideal for sensitive, dry and irritated scalps.
In addition, it can also help with itchy scalp, such as neurodermatitis or psoriasis.
At the same time, inflammations can also be alleviated.
Do you suffer from scaly scalp? Then this natural shampoo is the perfect alternative to traditional supermarket products.
I currently have very greasy hair and have made Aloe Vera Shampoo myself because I want to bring my scalp back into balance. Fast greasing hair is a sign that your skin is out of balance.
How to make Aloe Vera Shampoo yourself
First you have to collect all the ingredients for the shampoo. But it’s not that difficult. If you do natural cosmetics every now and then, you’ll already have a lot of them at home.
1. the ingredients for the Aloe Vera hair shampoo
Here come the ingredients you need to make it. I bought them all online and put them in a link for you. All ingredients marked with a * can be ordered directly from Amazon.
60 ml liquid Castilian soap*
60 ml Aloe Vera Gel*
5 ml glycerol*
1 ml vegetable oil*
optionally essential oils*
You can buy Aloe Vera Gel in a bottle. But it is even better if you have an Aloe Vera plant at home. Then the money is guaranteed unprocessed and contains the full load of nutrients for the hair.
The plant also grows quite well in the office in a pot and is very easy to clean. You can use it to treat insect bites as well as sunburn or irritated skin.
How best to get your hands on Aloe Vera Gel is described in a separate article. Here you will learn how to create the basis for the Aloe Vera shampoo step by step.
2. mix ingredients together
Place the Castilian soap, Aloe Vera gel, vegetable oil and glycerine in a bowl and stir carefully with a spoon.
If you like, you can also add a few drops of essential oils.
Lemon grass or citrus scent are particularly suitable. I chose orange. That fits wonderfully!
Then it’s already done.
You made your first Aloe Vera Shampoo yourself. Wasn’t difficult, was it?
3. bottle Aloe Vera Shampoo
You can pour the finished Aloe Vera Shampoo into a bottle with a funnel.
Make sure your container is really clean. So you can be sure that the DIY shampoo will not spoil.
Before closing the jar or bottle, wipe off spilled shampoo.
Important: You must wash your hair especially thoroughly and for a long time. I get it pretty hard out of my hair. But it’s worth it. Because the ingredients make the hair particularly easy to comb. You save yourself balm and Co.
4. self-made hair shampoo correctly store
Doing Aloe Vera Shampoo yourself is no witchcraft. Since it is very mild, it can also be used daily.
Before each use you should shake the shampoo well, because with time individual components can settle. This happens especially when you have used fresh gel.
If you make Aloe Vera Shampoo yourself, the shelf life depends on the ingredients you use.
If it was gel from the bottle, you can also use the shampoo for 3 weeks without any problems. Don’t forget to shake!
Once you have chosen fresh gel, you should use your shampoo within one week. Fresh ingredients begin to mold more easily. Always keep Aloe Vera Shampoo with fresh gel in the fridge!
All you need to wash your hair is a tablespoonful of shampoo. It is easy to massage in.
Then rinse out and blow dry your hair as usual or let it air dry.
Aloe Vera Shampoo made by yourself – useful information on the individual ingredients
Making shampoo from aloe vera is not difficult at all. All you need are four ingredients. They all have good caring properties.
Aloe Vera Gel in Shampoo
Aloe vera has two basic functions in cosmetics: On the one hand it moisturizes your mane and on the other hand it stimulates the blood circulation of the scalp.
Especially frequent blow-drying and dyeing can dry out the hair. Aloe vera restores shine and smoothness to your hair. The gel also strengthens the hair roots and reduces itching and dandruff.
Castilian soap as a base for your DIY shampoo
This natural soap base is made from olive oil. Some manufacturers enrich it additionally with coconut, jojoba or hemp seed oil.
Since the soap contains no chemicals, it is the ideal base for a hair- and skin-friendly shampoo.
With vegetable oil Aloe Vera Shampoo is made by yourself
Rich oils such as avocado oil, grape seed oil or coconut oil are important for hair care. They protect your hair from external influences – in summer from heat and in winter from cold.
Brittle hair becomes shiny again in an instant.
In shampoos from supermarkets you will find silicones to soften your hair. Silicones form a protective film around the hair. This has the disadvantage that nutrients do not reach the hair and the skin. Vegetable oils also provide soft hair but because they supply it with nutrients.
Glycerin in homemade shampoo
This ingredient has a water-attracting property. Glycerin keeps your hair and skin moist. Therefore it is very often used in cosmetics.
If you use the Aloe Vera Shampoo regularly, you will protect your hair from drying out.
Why you should make aloe vera shampoo yourself
A shampoo should remove excess grease and dirt from your scalp and hair. No more and no less.
Conventional shampoos, however, contain many ingredients that are not good for you, such as harmful softeners, parabens, formaldehyde or silicones.
These additives are absorbed through the skin during hair washing and enter our body. The effects of the many artificial additives in our bodies are still largely unexplored. But studies do not say good.
This is exactly what you can avoid when making a DIY shampoo.
If you have made Aloe Vera Shampoo yourself, you alone decide what comes in. You can also omit ingredients that you’re allergic to.
And there’s also a big plus for the price and the environment.
In the long run it is cheaper to produce hair care products yourself.
If you throw away a bottle of shampoo every month, you’ll be putting a lot of strain on the environment. Think about how much comes together in 3 years! The ingredients for DIY Shampoo, on the other hand, produce much less rubbish. You buy them once and can use them for a long time.
By now everyone knows that it is better to avoid unhealthy chemical ingredients in cosmetics. Therefore, you should make your own shampoo instead of using conventional shampoos.
You will then know all the ingredients used and at the same time you will not use any harmful substances. Gentle shampooing not only benefits your mane, but your health as a whole.
You’ll also have fun mixing and using, that’s a promise. 🙂
Have fun trying it out!
