Soothing Aloe Shampoo

Soothing Aloe Shampoo

If your scalp is dry and itchy, this soothing shampoo might be the cure. The key ingredients are:

Liquid castile soap – a natural cleanser. I use Dr. Bronner’s baby mild soap for my shampoo.

Aloe vera gel – a cooling anti-inflammatory and moisturizer. Buy the clear kind, not the aloe that’s artificially colored green.

Jojoba oil – a moisturizer.

Tea tree & lavenderessential oil – both are antibacterial oils, so if you have dandruff they will kill the fungus that causes it. The lavender is also soothing.

Combine the ingredients in a bottle and then slowly turn the bottle back and forth to break up the aloe vera gel. I usually leave the bottle on the counter so as I walk past it later in the day, I can shake it up again. Once the aloe is pretty well dissolved into the castile soap – usually within a day – it’s ready to use.

After using the shampoo for about a week you should notice you’re only scratching your head when you’re confused!
