How To Wash Hair Without Shampoo At Home?

The shampoo contains many harmful artificial chemicals which will damage your scalp and hair texture. You can use the shampoo once a week, and you can use homemade ingredients, which is better than a shampoo that can make your hair lustrous, smooth, and healthy. 

Your scalp produces natural oil to keep your hair moisturized. When your scalp secretes excess oil, it will clog your scalp pores. So many people use shampoo to clean the scalp. But using shampoo regularly dries out your scalp. 

You can change to natural products instead of shampoo to wash your hair. You can use an herbal shampoo made with natural ingredients. It will help to keep your hair moisturized. 

The following are several methods on how to wash your hair without shampoo at home. 

Apple cider vinegar 

Apple cider vinegar can be used instead of shampoo to clean your hair. Apple cider vinegar contains minerals, acids, and live cultures that are beneficial to the hair. It contains a PH value of 4 – 6, acts as a good conditioner and cleansing agent. Due to its antimicrobial and antioxidative properties, it helps in getting rid of an itchy scalp. Rinsing your hair with apple cider vinegar makes your hair voluminous and smooth. 

Baking soda

Baking soda is considered to be a fantastic alternative for shampoo. If you use baking soda mixed with water, it removes excess oil and makes your hair bouncy and shiny. You must be careful while using baking soda because if not used appropriately, it may cause damage to your scalp and can cause skin irritation. When you use baking soda for your hair, you must not leave it for an extended time because it may provoke the scalp. 

Bentonite clay

Bentonite clay is mined from the earth; when it is mixed with water or apple cider vinegar, it becomes negatively charged, which helps draw out the toxins from your hair, which is positively charged. This clay can be used as a hair mask and also washes out the hair. Mix 2 tbsp of bentonite clay with a cup of apple cider vinegar and half a cup of water. Please don’t use a metal bowl or spoon for mixing the clay because it reacts with the metal and loses its beneficiary factors. Use warm water to wash your hair before it is completely dry because it will be difficult to wash your hair when it is totally dry.

Rhassoul gets its name from Arabic, meaning washing. It is a natural form of mineral clay used for decades for cleaning the hair. It is available in powder form, and when you mix it with water, it turns into clay.
