(Practically) Natural Shampoo

Well, we say homemade... but you really use an excellent pure castile soap, that can be diluted. Dr. Bronner's Peppermint soap is gentle and natural. The ingredients are simple: Saponified organic coconut oil, saponified organic olive oil, organic hemp oil, organic jojoba oil, citric acid, vitamin E, organic peppermint oil, and mentha arvensis, and water.

Mix the following into an 8 oz squirt bottle and refill as needed:

Fill the bottle with half Dr. Bronners, one-third vinegar, and two-thirds water.
I've been using this mix all year, and the scalp and hair always turn out super clean and ready for my conditioning treatments of the  apple cider vinegar rinse, and leave-in coconut conditioner.
