[Video Transcription] DIY Natural Shampoo
Hi I’m Dr. Zyrowski.
And I’m Ashleigh.
And in this video we are going to do DIY natural shampoo. I always tell you that it is so important to make sure that you’re mitigating chemical exposure as much as possible. And one of the great ways to do this is in your beauty products. It is estimated that you come into contact with over 160 different chemicals on average in your beauty products alone. So when we look at these different beauty products out there that many of them contain fragrances, they contain sulfates, they contain betaine, they contain so many different chemicals that are endocrine disrupting. They’re disrupting normal function of your body. These toxins are storing deep into your nervous system tissue, and into your body and causing all kinds of disturbances. They can create immune imbalances and so much more. It’s very important to make sure that we’re avoiding these chemical exposures. So what do we need to know about this shampoo?
The reason I like this shampoo is because you can customize it according to your hair and what you need and what you like. As you mentioned there’s not many sulfates in there. Sulfates are very harsh for your hair, as well as being an endocrine disruptor and causing cancer and things like that. So you can make this with no added tools or anything simple ingredients that you can either find at your local grocery store or you can order online. And you can make several batches of shampoo for a quarter of the cost that you would buy at a national shampoo for in the store.
Great. What are the ingredients that we have here?
This is Dr. Bronner’s castile soap. The one that I am going to be using today is almond. I really like the scent of almond. Again the benefit of making this shampoo is you can get unscented and customize it to what you would like. Again unscented castile soap. You can add lavender if you like lavender. You could add tea tree if you have some dry scalp. You can add pine if you like the scent of pine, especially maybe in the winter time. You can add about 10 or 20 drops of essential oil to your shampoo and you can customize that however you’d like but today simplicity purposes I’m using almond. The second ingredient is aloe vera. I like the fruit of the earth brand it’s 100% aloe vera gel. This is vegetable glycerin, and the last ingredient is jojoba oil. You can use this, this is what I use to make my shampoo if this is unavailable to you, you can certainly substitute olive oil or grape seed oil in this recipe.
Great. You’re going to take all of these and put it into the bottle?
Yep. Then obviously you’re going to need a bottle or a jar. You can either use a pump dispenser or I just have a pop-top empty shampoo bottle.
Great let’s get it started.
Okay to make your own shampoo you’ll start by adding a half a cup of water. I am going to use a funnel to make it a little less messy. Next you’ll add 1/2 cup of castile soap. You’ll add 1 tablespoon of jojoba oil. And 2 tablespoons of vegetable glycerin. Aloe vera is extremely messy to try to measure in and then pour into the bottle so I just squirt it directly into the bottle and I have my bottle pre marked for this purpose. Now you can put on your top and shake it together for about 10 to 15 seconds. So that’s how I make my shampoo for my hair. Now I have very dry hair so that’s why I add ingredients like aloe vera and vegetable glycerin. If you do not have dry hair you can certainly avoid adding these two. A basic shampoo recipe would simply be castile soap water and the jojoba oil. So feel free to add essential oils to this or to change up the scent of the castile soap according to what you enjoy.
