Hey, Curlies!

Up next in our Ayurvedic August Beauty Series is a DIY shampoo recipe using herbs. This plant-based shampoo includes Ayurvedic herbs like Reetha, Amla and Shikakai powders.

Learn how to make this scalp cleanser in the video below. Here is the recipe you can try at home and the ETSY shop where the herbs can be found.

DIY Ayurvedic Shampoo Recipe

  • 1/4 cup mix of Reetha, Amla and Shikakai powders
  • 1/3 cup water (add less or more depending on how thin you like your final shampoo)
  • 1 teaspoon carrier oil (optional)
  • 2-3 drops essential oil of choice (optional)

Apply the mixture to scalp, let sit for one minute and rinse. I recommend making enough shampoo for single use. Due to the water in this shampoo, you’ll need to add a preservative if you plan to use your mixture later.
