Hair care products are some of the worst offenders when it comes to toxic body care products. When you're washing your hair you want to wash all the nasty stuff out, without putting more in! That's why we love to make our own conditioner and homemade shampoo with essential oils. I also have a homemade essential oil hair spray recipe to help round out your hair care collection!

Below theses recipes you'll find my super-secret simplified DIY homemade shampoo with essential oils and conditioner recipes. These are what I use when I don't have time to make my own, or I've run out of an ingredient needed for one of the homemade recipes.

Easier DIY Hair Care with Homemade Shampoo with Essential Oils

Another great alternative to toxic hair care products is to buy something like this unscented organic shampoo from Desert Essence, or their unscented conditioner and add your own essential oils! I recommend 8 drops of essential oil per ounce of product. For babies try this unscented baby-mild pure castile soap from Dr. Bronner. You can use it plain, or add a few drops of lavender essential oil.
