Everyday shampoo commercials are convincing us that a certain shampoo is the one that will make our hair perfect in a matter of weeks. However, once you read the content of a certain shampoo you will be doubtful. Although we are used to wash our hair with bought shampoo and conditioner, making your own natural shampoo will save you money and you have a perfect, healthy hair. Also, these shampoos are safe to use.
Gelatin is very useful since it has collagen which is a connective tissue protein. It improves the overall health and look of the hair. This mixture is full with proteins which make your hair shiny.

Moreover, you can make a concentrated solution of gelatin by mixing 1 tablespoon of gelatin with 3 tablespoons water and one yolk.
The eggs contain lecithin and almost all of the amino acids which protect the hair from dandruff and damaging. Mix the whole egg in a small amount of warm water and then put the foam of the egg on wet hair and rinse off with warm water. After this, wash the hair with 1 tablespoon of vinegar in 2 liters water. You can rinse it off with herbal tea for a shiny result.
Baking soda shampoo
The safest way for washing hair is with baking soda which is very cheap and it is a shampoo replacer, gels and a lot of other cleaning products that we constantly use in our homes. Moreover, soda reacts as an alkaline and when it is mixed with water is very good for the body and hair as well, because it neutralizes acids that are released through the skin.
For medium long hair and density use 1 tablespoon of baking soda dissolved in hot water and then add cold water. You need 200 ml of this mixture and apply it to wet hair and rinse it off. After this, rinse it once again with a mixture of 2 liters water, a tablespoon of lemon juice and vinegar.
This is a useful shampoo for problems that come along with greasy hair. Your hair will get denser and lush. Also, your hair will grow faster.

Also, there are other natural shampoos such as flour, ashes, beer yeast, etc. All in all, by using natural shampoos your hair is toxin-free and also improve your overall health.
