Zero waste shampoo tutorials that will save you a bundle

Ok, let’s get real. We have all just come back from holidays which means not only are we readjusting to real life again but we are not at our wealthiest right now. Some of you may have guessed I started a zero waste and vegan journey a little while ago. Why is this relevant? Not only does it help the planet but it seriously helps my bank balance. Today I want to share a couple of zero waste shampoo aka ‘no poo’ recipes that I have discovered. I will lay these out in a step by step method so they are easy to follow. Remember we all have different scalps so you may need to try more than one to get one that works for you. When you have found the right one use it on your extension too!#wearcliphair


Chickpea shampoo

This one sounded a little odd to me when I first heard of it but it has to be a traditional method of washing hair in India for centuries so it must be good. Chickpeas have protein so if you are trying to strengthen your hair this might be the recipe for you. Start by putting 2 tablespoons of chickpea/ gram flour in a bowl. Add some water and begin to stir your mixture. You don’t want it too runny but you want it to be like a lump-free paste. In a separate cup squeeze 1 lemon and 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. You are now ready to add your chickpea mixture to damp hair and massage in. add water to your lemon wash and use this to rinse it out for shine. This recipe is done, how simple is that?!


Curly hair shampoo

If your hair is wavy/curly this is one that might be more helpful to you. Like the previous recipe, it has ingredients that are brilliant for the health of your scalp. Measure 400 ml of water and add to a saucepan. Add 2 teaspoons of dry aloe vera powder, you can get this at health food stores or Wholefoods. Another slightly unusual ingredient that you can get there is Shikakai powder, you will need to add 2 teaspoons of this as well. Continuing with the magic number 2 you will need 2 teaspoons of dried nettle (like you have in loose leaf tea). Let this brew and cool to room temperature before you add the liquid ingredients. Sieve out the solid ingredients from your water and put them to one side. Add 115 ml of veg glycerine and liquid castile soap and stir. You can get these in bulk from zero waste store around the city. You just add the shampoo to damp hair massage in and rinse out.
