Make a natural baby shampoo DIY to take special care of your baby’s hair and keep their scalp protected from harmful chemicals!
Your baby’s delicate hair strands need extra care and less of chemicals to keep them growing and shining. Moreover, no matter how many claims those shampoo companies make about their product being natural, such products always contain certain hidden chemicals that might harm your baby’s scalp. If the hairs don’t get enough nourishment while in the growing stage, it’s possible that they will be lacking nourishment throughout their life. Commercial shampoos can make the hair dry and damaged; not to mention if any of the ingredients don’t suit your baby, it might lead to hair fall.
That’s why you need to process a natural baby shampoo DIY to provide the care and nourishment that the hair needs. You can make the shampoo at a lower cost as compared to the price of commercial products. And since it’s homemade, you can always customize it in terms of ingredients as well as the amount. The natural baby shampoo DIY recipe below isn’t limited to a child’s use; you can use it for your hair as well.
Natural Baby Shampoo DIY
- Castile Soap- One Cup
- Water- One cup
- Glycerin- 2 Tsp
- Essential Oil- 5 Drops
- Vitamin E oil- 1 tsp
Note: Castile soap and water should be in equal proportion, for example, for every one cup of castile soap you need one cup of water.
Castile soap is made from simple plant oils and thus, it will suit even the most sensitive type of skin. Glycerin will add extra moisture and also will help in bubble formation to make the bath more fun and exciting. While choosing essential oils, you should always go for some sweet oils to give the shampoo a mild fragrance. Moreover, oils like lavender and rosemary will help to calm your baby’s senses and improve their memory. Vitamin E oil is a crucial ingredient to boost up healthy hair growth.
- Mix all of the ingredients together and store in a glass container and keep it away from direct sunlight.
How To Use
Take a generous amount of the DIY shampoo in your palms and massage it on your baby’s hair. Wash it with lukewarm water and pat dry the hair. Keep in mind not to rub the hair with a towel to prevent hair breakage. If you use it as a body wash, rub it to the baby’s skin and wash it with a sponge or microfiber cloth.
Disclaimer: If you notice any negative change in your baby’s hair after using this DIY shampoo, discontinue the use and re-customize it with the ingredients that will suit your baby’s hair.
