Precautions Before Using Homemade Shampoo and Conditioner

If there is any redness or irritation, discard the product and consider another option.

Homemade Dandruff Treatment

After this mixture is well blended, add about 1/4 cup of olive oil, and Ã?½ cup of distilled water. Continue blending the mixture until it’s well blended and ready to use. This homemade shampoo will make your hair soft, shiny, and naturally clean.
