Hair Cleanser Recipes for No Shampoo Method

By Surabhi Pisal

Hello beautiful ladies! :*

In my post ‘The No Shampoo Method and My Personal Experience’, I had introduced you all to my no-shampoo journey. I am very pleased with the kind of response I got! Many of you had asked me about alternatives for baking soda-ACV wash. So, here it is! This article is about more no-poo recipes.

Baking soda, if used in the long run could make hair dry. Though, your hair won’t look dry, it would still feel dry. I usually use baking soda twice a month or so, and use the following recipes in between washes.

DIY Herbal Shampoo

You Need:
• Shikakai powder
• Amla powder
• Reetha powder

1. Mix all powders in equal proportion in warm water and make a semi-solid paste (not too thick, not too runny).
2. Massage your hair and scalp with this mixture for 3-4 minutes and leave it on it for 5 minutes (if hair is very oily).
3. Wash hair thoroughly with water followed by lemon/vinegar rinse.

Cucumber Shampoothie

This is one of my favourite recipes! 😀

You Need:
• 2 cucumbers
• Juice of 2 lemons
• Water

1. Blend cucumbers and lemon juice in a blender with 1 ½ cups water.
2. Wash hair like usual with this cucumber shampoothie.
3. Wash hair thoroughly with water followed by lemon/vinegar rinse.

Note:Make sure you use a wide toothed comb in order to comb your hair gently and slowly to avoid breakage. Do this at the end of your shower to remove all cucumber flakes.

Banana Smoothie Shampoo

You Need:
• 1 banana
• 5 tbs milk
• 1 tsp honey

2. Wash hair with this mixture followed by lemon/vinegar rinse.

Egg Lemon Wash

You Need:
• 2 eggs
• Juice of 2 lemons
• 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1. Mix all the ingredients properly.
2. Wash hair with this solution followed by lemon/vinegar wash.

Note:Make sure you wash your hair properly as you do not want your hair to smell like rotten eggs, of course!

Of all the above, cucumber shampoothie and egg lemon wash really work wonders! Try banana smoothie for a deep nourishing protein treatment when your hair feels very dry. Do not use it very often or it will make your hair greasy (for no-pooers).

I, sometimes, only water wash if my hair doesn’t feel greasy, especially during winters. Stay tuned for more no-poo hair care tips. Any suggestions or doubts, feel free to write in the comments section below. Till then, go be beautiful :*
