Today I am opening the Green Beauty segment with this easy & natural shampoo DIY made of ghassoul and castor oil.
Ghassoul is a volcanic clay from Morocco with wonderful properties. It’s a natural detergent (also works for your body) that absorbs and remove the excess of sebum without drying your scalp (unlike many shampoos full of harmful chemicals).
Castor oil is high in fatty acids and minerals and helps grow and fortify hair.
I got the ghassoul powder and castor oil during my trip to Morocco last December but you can find them pretty much everywhere in organic shops or online beauty shops.
Steps for this natural shampoo:
On wet hair, apply the mixture at the roots. I start in the middle and go down on each side creating sections of hair (same way as if you were dying your hair at the hairdresser). I leave this natural shampoo mask for about 15 minutes. No need to wash your hair with another shampoo after this application. Simply rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
Every other day, I switch to this natural & zero waste shampoo.
Healthier, stronger, shinier and smooth hair with natural volume. I seriously love it (and I don’t need conditioner!)!
At the end of 2016, I set the goal to remove myself from toxic shampoos and masks. From my experience, my advice to you is to switch between your current classic shampoo and this natural hair shampoo and also this zero waste/natural bar shampoo. You will give yourself and your scalp the time to adjust to this new natural routine.
Go green in 2017, your body and the planet will thank you.
