How to make herbal shampoo at home:

Most of the shampoos that are available in the market have chemicals, especially an accepted contraction of sodium lauryl ether sulfate, is an anionic detergent and surfactant that is found in many personal care products. SLES is an inexpensive and very effective foaming agent. This detergent causes dryness of hair, hair loss and even allergic reaction to some people who are very sensitive. Let’s make our own herbal shampoo at home without adding any synthetic chemicals and just by using natural ingredients. It is not just cost-effective with the low budget, it also cleans and conditions your hair effectively and beautifully.

  1. Shikakai Shampoo.


  • Shikakai -1\2 kg.
  • Soap nuts (deseeded and dried) – 100 grams.
  • Hibiscus flowers (Just the red flower alone)- 1 cup.
  • Fenugreek -150 grams.
  • Dried Lemon peels – 10.
  • Curry leaves (dried) -1 cup.
  • Green gram – 150 grams.

Let it all the ingredients dry in the sun for a week and grind it to a dry flour. This could be ground at a flour mill or could be bought has powders (organic) separately from the market. Just mix all the ingredients and start using it. Store this powder in a dry container and use it according to the length of your hair by mixing water, curd, cooked rice strained water or first wash rice water.

Just had Neem Leaves – When I was schooling I have never faced dandruff problem, lice problem or any scalp related problems, the secret behind it was Neem and Tulsi leaves. My grandmother would also add powdered neem leaves and tulsi leaves to the powdered shikkakai. As we know that Neem has powerful antiseptic properties. You could also mix Henna powder and Gooseberries powder along with Shikakai to avoid premature greying.

To avoid Shikakai from sticking to your scalp – Take required amount of Shikkakai powder, mix it with water to form a paste and cook on low flame wait until it starts thickening.  Now switch off the flame and allow it cool down. This procedure will help in avoiding the Shikakai sticking to your scalp.
