Nothing brings about that summer feeling more than the delicious smell of coconut, and we have a recipe that will lock that glorious summertime scent in your hair: homemade coconut milk shampoo.
What You Need:
½ cup coconut milk (this can be found in the international aisle at most supermarkets)
2/3 cup castile soap (this can be found at health food stores like Whole Foods. I always stick with Dr. Bronner’s because it’s made of pure, fair trade ingredients)
1 tsp vitamin E oil
1 tsp coconut oil
Like many beauty products, the ingredients can be altered to fit your scent preference, as long as these two stay the same: coconut milk and castile soap. As for oil, you can use vitamin E, coconut, almond, or olive. You can also add a few drops of essential oil if you like. I think next time I will go with lavender or vanilla.
What you do:
If you’re using coconut oil, place it in the microwave for about 30 seconds or until it’s fully melted. Combine all ingredients in a container with a lid, and shake. To use, shampoo your hair as you normally would. Use 1-2 teaspoons of the shampoo, depending on hair length and thickness. You can store one batch in your shower for up to a month.
