Natural Soap Nut Based Shampoo - DIY
Soap nuts are the fruits of the soap tree. A tree useful for housewives was first found in Asian countries. The fruits of the tree are berries and not nuts, but everyone calls them nuts out of habit. They have a positive effect on the condition of hair and skin. Soap nuts are used as a base for shampoos, conditioners, shower gels and laundry detergents.
The below soap nuts are organic, already deseeded and come with a bag. You can put a few of these nuts in a bag, throw into your washing machine with dirty cloth and wash as usually, but without adding toxic laundry detergent. I use them myself and can recommend to you as already tested many times.
Soap Nuts are a perfect shampoo base for dry, normal and damaged hair.
PREPERATION. To make a shampoo, place 10 soap nuts in boiling water (about 900 mg) and boil covered on low heat for 35-40 minutes. The solution should be left to cool overnight. In the morning stain the broth, add 7-10 drops of any essential oil you like. You can add vitamins, jojoba oil or any other additives you like. You can also use it as is without any additives. Close it with air tight lid and store in refrigerator for 2-3 weeks.
USE. Wet your hair with regular water. Then add a small amount of prepared soap nut broth and wash as usually. This shampoo will certainly not foam like an industrial shampoo. It even may not foam at all! But at the same time it perfectly washes away dirt and nourishes hair. I recommend repeating the application 2-3 times during one wash.
Please keep in mind that hair after a natural product will feel a little harder to the touch than after a store product. However, at the same time they will become stronger, they will fall out less, the feeling of dry skin after washing the head will disappear, dandruff will disappear, and the appearance of the hair will improve. Do not immediately swear and say that such shampoos are not effective. Keep using it until your hair gets used to it. Soon your hair will look better and softer than after store-bought shampoos.
