Herbal Shampoo for Dark Hair
1/2 c water
1 tsp dried lavender
1 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp whole cloves
2 tbsp unscented natural shampoo
In pot of water add lavender,
and cloves (I used ground) and bring to boil.
Remove from heat and let steep for 30 minutes.
Pour into container.
Add shampoo (I used a natural liquid soap). Refrigerate to keep for up to a month.
I have always been a freak about washing my hair everyday, and thus I notice any little increase in a greasy feeling. When I use this shampoo, I find my hair heavier than when I use drugstore shampoo. I don't know if this might actually be good or not. Perhaps my hair is just heavier because I am not completely stripping it of all the natural oils? I am considering just added more soap to the mixture and seeing if that helps.
I think I might be noticing the oncoming of some highlights though. To help that along, I think my next project will be a highlighting hair rinse. Stay tuned!
