DIY Herbal Hair Care

Lavender has a long history of use in personal care – its name comes from the Latin for “to wash”.

We have a saying around the school: don’t put anything on your skin you wouldn’t put into your mouth. That includes things that go on your hair! We say this because most of what you put on your skin, or use to wash your hair, will be absorbed into your body. If your shampoo and conditioner are full of phthalates, parabens, and other nasty things, your liver and kidneys will have to work extra hard to clear those from your system. We use these things for convenience, but it turns out there’s a better way – make them yourself!

Learn how to make your own herb-infused vinegar hair rinse, herbal shampoo powder, honey-herb conditioner, and other great hair care preparations. They’re simple to make, inexpensive, and completely non-toxic. Your hair will shine, and your endocrine system will thank you for the relief!
