So I was browsing Pinterest and came across a picture claiming that you could make your own detoxing hair shampoo that gets rid of the product build up in your hair and also exfoliates your scalp WITHOUT removing the natural juices and oils your hair produces. It does however wash your hair properly and will not be greasy when you dry your hair!
This type of DIY product has been likened to products such as the Lush BIG shampoo which is a sea salt shampoo that throughly cleans your hair but considering that shampoo costs £11.25 for 330g which is the same size as a can of coke OR £3 for this DIY one.
What you will need:
- Coarse Sea Salt
- Your Favourite Shampoo
- A Container (I got mine from Tesco for £2.50)
They say to use 2 parts shampoo to 3 parts sea salt but I didn't know what the heck this meant because I'm British and we don't use parts and stuff we say measurements and also I'm bit thick when it comes to measuring! If it doesn't say it blatantly like ALICIA GET 100G OF SEA SALT or something like that then I'm clueless so below you can see roughly I filled my jar 1/4 of the way up with sea salt and then used the remainder of the shampoo that I had left in my bottle (you can see this in the top picture) I then thoroughly mixed this together.
That is literally all you have to do! I use this in place of my shampoo and I use it about two-three times a month because it is a very thorough cleaning so you don't want the salt to clean you hair out too well and leave it dry and without any natural oils! If you use it like I've said it will leave hair with a visible lift and it should look healthy and clean!
