Homemade Shampoo

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup liquid castile soap (lavender is my favorite)
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Directions:

1. Mix all ingredients together in an empty shampoo bottle (shake really well). 

2. Use about a teaspoon every time you shampoo (more if you have really long hair). 

Tip: For a leave-in conditioner, a small amount of coconut oil will do the trick.
