Shimmer and Shine: Making Homemade Shampoo & Conditioner

Give your hair the love it deserves with natural shampoos, conditioners and rinses.



Great-looking hair is something everyone desires, and it is not difficult to achieve. If you eat a well-balanced diet, drink plenty of water and get plenty of rest, your skin and hair will show it. Although proper hair care and conditioning are vital, the most important thing you can do for your hair is to keep it clean and well nourished.
After you wash your hair, rinse well for at least two full minutes and use the coolest water you can stand. My mother always told me that the colder the water, the greater the shine!
Use a small amount of shampoo (the size of a quarter); it is better to repeat the amount than waste too much the first time.
