Today I am sharing with you a scrumptious homemade shampoo recipe that smells good enough to drink…but don’t. 🙂 Just use it on your hair. You can double this recipe if you wash your hair everyday or have more family members using it.
Pina Colada Shampoo :
One attractive glass bottle ( or you can use an old shampoo bottle.)
one cup of organic coconut milk ( rich in vitamins & minerals, in addition to being a great moisturizer)
one ounce of Liquid Castile Soap ( makes bubbles! )
1/2 ounce of olive oil ( anti-inflammatory )
12 drops of Pineapple Aromatherapy oil. ( Pineapple is rich in vitamin C and improves circulation )
Poor Castile soap in the bottle first. Then add olive oil, and mix. Add your pineapple oil and then your coconut milk. You hair will feel like it’s on a beach in the caribbean ! AHHHH. 🙂
Shine as Light & Love,
Jules, I have been looking for a good home made shampoo for Sierra’s hair forever. She has the driest scalp imaginable. I am going to have to try this!
That’s great! Thanks Tiff! Let me know if it works for you. I am pretty sure it will. Olive oil and coconut milk is so lovely for the skin and hair. Hugs 🙂
Thank you Jules! Will this be good for a sensitive scalp? How many shampoos will this get and can it stay in the shower or should I refrigerate it?
If you are having trouble with scalp irritation, I would put some tea tree oil on a cotton swab and dab that on the spots of your scalp that are prone to break out. If you make just enough shampoo as the recipe calls for and not double the recipe, it should be fine left in the shower. As long as you use the coconut milk that is purchased in either cans or cartons, it should be fine. ❤ Hugs
Is it okay to leave the coconut milk out and unrefridgerated ? How long will this keep? Thanks
Once you open up a can or carton of coconut milk, it must be refridgerated. I know it is not practical to keep your shampoo in the fridge ( ha), however you can make a smaller amount such as make only enough for 2 or 3 shampoos at a time.
Hope this helps and thank you for reading our blog. 🙂
