Have you been searching for the right kind of shampoo & conditioner for your hair? Like me, do you feel we can add or subtract certain ingredients and customize our own shampoo according to our hair type?

Even though we opt for organic options for our daily shampoos and conditioners we sometimes wonder are they actually 100% organic?

Don’t worry and just read this article and step by step make your own shampoos and conditioners at home using all your preferred ingredients.

I am sharing 2 different shampoos and conditioners using two different hair-friendly ingredients. But you can other your preferred ingredients and customize your own exclusively for your hair type.

Okay, so in these both shampoos and conditioners 1 thing in common which is;

Homemade Aloe Vera Gel

If you want to know how to make it, click here.

The main two ingredients I am using are;

  1. Fenugreek seeds
  2. Rice

Fenugreek seeds for hair

Loaded with Iron and proteins fenugreek seeds are an ultimate hair care natural ingredient.

It not only repairs the damaged hair and roots but also brings back the natural shine and strength of our hair.

Fenugreek seeds are rich in vitamin A, C and K all of which are responsible for healthy and shiny hair.

They contain folic acid which is necessary to maintain the good health of our hair.

They are also rich in potassium and calcium both of these minerals are helpful in healthy hair growth and to stop hair fall.

Regular use of fenugreek seeds prevents hairball, premature hair thinning, hair greying and dandruff issues.

They are responsible for healthy, shiny and beautiful hair.

Take 1 tbsp fenugreek seeds and soak them overnight in a glass of water.

The next day strains the fenugreek seed water and keeps it aside. We will be needing this fenugreek seed water to make our shampoo.

And take the soaked fenugreek seeds add 1 or 2 tbsp fenugreek water in it and grind it until there is a smooth paste formed.

We will be using this fenugreek paste in our conditioner.

You can also make a paste out of fenugreek powder and overnight soaked fenugreek seeds water instead.
