Some Easy Shampoo Recipes

1: Baking Soda Shampoo Recipe

This is the most comfortable homemade shampoo and so cheap to make. All you need is:

  • One tablespoon baking soda (also referred to as sodium bicarbonate)
  • 1 cup of water. Use soft water and avoid heavy or tough water for maximal effectiveness.
  • One empty shampoo bottle


  • Pour the water into the bottle and add the baking soda.
  • You can double the proportion depending on the amount of shampoo you want
  • Firmly shake the bottle, and your shampoo is ready.
  • To use the shampoo, shake the bottle before use and pour/squirt a bit on your moist hair.
  • Massage it in very well and wash it off after a couple of minutes.
  • Make sure you rinse correctly.
  • Leftover soda can build up and make your hair to be dry and coarse.

We advocate the usage of this shampoo while you are transitioning from a business product to a self-made one, and no longer maintain this as your everyday shampoo.

  • Rub this into your moist hair and scalp, and wash it off with lukewarm water after a few minutes.
  • If you fear that your hair would smell, upload a few drops of your preferred critical essential oil into the shampoo.
  • Tip: Don’t use hot water because that has been known to heighten the eggy smell.
