Handmade Shampoos

For those of you who find yourselves in unfamiliar territories when it comes to the mountain of shampoos in todays stores. You walk in and find yourself hessitant to go down the isle filled with hair care products and shampoos. WHICH ONE IS BEST? Which shampoo is going to make my hair look it's best? Can I use this brand on my colored or permed hair?

Have you ever asked yourself, what kind of chemicals and toxins are in my shampoo????? Probably not! The average person does not think about their hair care products containing harmful and toxic chemicals, in fact most consumers don't even read the label. I mean how can you, it's in some technical terms that NO ONE is meant to decifer.

The average shampoo is filled with approximatley 85% fillers and chemicals that are toxic to you, the children you HAVE NOT HAD YET, and are known to build within your bodies cellular system. These toxci chemicals have the ability to bind with your cells and DNA (your genetic make up) mutate! WHY?
This is simple it's because the average person is used to the feel and look of heavy detergents in their hair. The Shampoo companies gave the public exactly what you wanted, you wanted shiney hair, that is managable and not tangled, well these are the products you got.

Handmade Shampoos, offer a different approach to clean hair. When you use a truly handmade shampoo you are simply using pure soap!
What is the definition of SOAP?
Soap, is a salt of a fatty acid.[1] Soap is mainly used for washing and cleaning, but soaps are also important components of lubricants.

Soaps for cleansing are obtained by treating vegetable or animal oils and fats with a strongly alkaline solution. The alkaline solution, often lye, promotes what is known as saponification. In saponification, fats are broken down (hydrolyzed) yielding crude soap, i.e. impure salts of fatty acids and glycerol.

When used for cleaning, soap serves as a surfactant in conjunction with water. The cleaning action of this mixture is attributed to the action of micelles, tiny spheres coated on the outside with polar carboxylate groups, encasing a hydrophobic (lipophilic) pocket that can surround the grease particles, allowing them to dissolve in water. The hydrophobic portion is made up of the long hydrocarbon chain from the fatty acid. In other words, whereas normally oil and water do not mix, the addition of soap allows oils to dissolve in water, allowing them to be rinsed away. Synthetic detergents operate by similar mechanisms to soap.

Bottom line is, soap is used to remove excess grease/oil, detergents do the same thing however there is a night and day difference between a detergent and a true REAL SOAP.
Detergents tend to dry the skin.

Handmade Shampoos take a little time for you to get used too, first off because they only take the excess oils, dirt and build up off of your hair shaft, you may notice a nearly 'over oily' feel to your hair the first month of use, this can be simply combated by using an APPLE CIDER VINEGAR rinse on your hiar once a week. What's going on is your hair is producing more and more oils to compensate for the overly excessive oil cutting in detergent shampoos (99% of OTC shampoos). So we need to retrain your hair to only produce the oils it needs to protect the hair shaft and folical, this is done by making a simple rinse of pure Apple Cider Vinegar 1/4 cup to 1 Gallon of tepid (body temp - slightly cooler) water, then rinse your hair with the apple cider vinegar and water making sure to saturate the hair and scalp. Your hair is NOT going to smell like vinegar when it dries and there is no need to rinse your hair after applying the rinse. This is a simple and easy solution to those making the switch to natural shampoos, it's natural and you will notice your hair becoming more vibrant, while your going to notice less and less oiliness to your hair.

Handmade shampoos offer you highly effective cleansing of your hair without harming your hair in any way. your hair is going to be full and you can add certin herbs to the warter when you warm it for the rinse, like chamomile, rosemary (stimulating and excellant for those with thinning hair), nettles, horsechesnut.... green tea, the combinations are endless, and some herbs also help to brighten and highlight your hair naturall, like Chamomile for blonde's and for highlights.
