1. Easy Homemade Coconut Shampoo
This is the easiest homemade coconut oil shampoo and uses very few ingredients. It also takes less than 5 minutes to make. To make this shampoo, you will need
¾ cup water
½ cup castile soap
2 teaspoon table salt
2 tablespoon coconut oil
2 teaspoon jojoba oil
20 drops coconut fragrance oil

Pour the water in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for half a minute.
Pour in the castile soap and blend gently without making too many suds.
Add the salt and mix well.
Finally, add the oils and stir until well incorporated.
Store this in a squeeze bottle.

2. Moisturizing pH Balanced Shampoo
Our scalp has a particular pH, and it is very important that you should maintain it. An imbalance in the pH levels can lead to fungal or bacterial infections. Most hair care products contain alkaline chemicals. As a result, the pH levels increase and the alkali in the shampoos reacts with the natural sebum (acidic in nature). This strips away the protective sebaceous layer that prevents the infections, dandruff, fungus, etc. Even the liquid soap has a pH of nearly nine which is very alkaline. So, to make a pH balanced shampoo, you need the following:

1 ½ cups of coconut oil
1 ¾ cups of Aloe Vera gel
20 drops of any fragrant essential oil
Mix the oils and gel in a bowl with a wire whisk.
Pour this into a jar and refrigerate.
The shampoo does not forth soapy lather because it doesn’t have baking soda or liquid soap, both of which increase the alkalinity of the mixture. But it can be applied in the same way. The refrigerated mixture is thick and has a pudding-like consistency. Massaging your scalp with it removes the dirt and also nourishes the hair. You can wash the shampoo away with water. If you feel your hair is greasy, wash with a cup of apple cider vinegar.

3. Coconut And Honey Shampoo
Even if you make your own shampoo with liquid soap, coconut oil, and fragrance, it is not much better than the store bought shampoos, chock full of chemicals. This is because the pH of the soap is quite high, and therefore, is still pretty harmful to the hair. To make a more balanced shampoo, you can use the following recipe. It requires:

1 cup coconut oil
1 cup Aloe Vera gel
¼ cup distilled water
2 tablespoons raw honey
1 teaspoon lavender essential oil
1 teaspoon rosemary essential oil
½ cup liquid castile soap (you can also omit this if you are okay with a lather free shampoo)
1 teaspoon avocado oil (use if you have dry hair)

Slowly stir the honey in lukewarm water until it is evenly mixed.
Add the rest of the ingredients barring the soap and blend well.
Now stir in the soap but do not agitate too much as that will form unnecessary suds.
Pour this into a squeeze bottle and store in the freezer.
Shake the shampoo well before use, as the ingredients separate, which is normal. The shampoo lasts 2-3 weeks in the fridge, so store it in several small bottles. When you use a bottle, keep it in the fridge and store the rest in the freezer.

4. Coconut Oil Shampoo For Dandruff Problem
Is your hair thinning out? Do you have an itchy scalp that sheds dandruff flakes everywhere? Are you afraid of wearing black? Though it sounds very much like an anti-dandruff shampoo advertisement, it is a very real problem for many. The key to getting rid of dandruff is soothing the scalp using essential oils. To make this shampoo, you need:

½ cup coconut milk
1 cup liquid soap
½ cup glycerine
4 teaspoon coconut oil
10 drops of essential oil (buy the therapeutic grade for best quality)

Combine the coconut oil and glycerine in one bowl, and soap and milk in another.
Slowly trickle in the oil mixture in the soap and milk mixture. Stir it to mix well.
Add the essential oil and store it in a shampoo bottle.
Again, like the coconut and honey shampoo, this one also separates on sitting out for long. Just shake it before using. You can skip the glycerine in the recipe, but it does give the shampoo a thicker consistency. It also makes the hair much softer. However, you can skip if it makes your hair sticky.

5. Coconut Milk Shampoo
In coconut milk, there are plenty of healthy proteins and nutrients. These nourish the hair and give it a luscious texture. To make a coconut milk shampoo you will need the following:

1 cup coconut milk
1/3 cup olive oil
Hot water

Mix the oil and milk together.
To use it, massage onto your scalp for a few minutes and leave it for better absorption.
It creates a sticky, mask-like layer. Rinse it with the hot water. It cleans the scalp very well and removes dirt, excess sebum, and dandruff.

6. Dry Coconut Shampoo
Sometimes, transitioning from work to party means spending a precious hour of shampooing, blow-drying and styling. Either you can do that, or you can go to the party with ratty hair and endure disbelieving looks. These are the times when you need a hassle-free dry shampoo. However, dry shampoo also contains lots of chemicals. If you want a nourishing shampoo, it is best to switch to your own DIY dry coconut shampoo. For this, you need:

4 tablespoons organic cinnamon bark powder
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon coconut milk powder
1 tablespoon finely powdered oatmeal
10 drops of lavender oil (or an essential oil of your choice)

Combine the powders with a whisk.
Add the essential oil and mix.
To apply, use a large makeup (blush) brush and dust your hair and scalp with the powder.
Comb your hair to get rid of excess powder.
The cinnamon and coconut milk powder act as a conditioner, so the result is thick, shiny hair that smells heavenly.

7. Coconut Shampoo And Conditioner Combo
Coconut oil is really good for your hair texture and adds a pearly sheen to it. So, if you could make a shampoo and conditioner combo out of it that would be just the product to use for all purposes. To make this coconut shampoo and conditioner, you need:

1 cup Dr. Bronner Castile soap (it contains organic oils and vitamin E and is natural)
3/4 cup coconut oil
20 drops of coconut fragrance
10 drops of vanilla extract

Like all the other shampoos, it is essential that you mix the oil and soap gently to prevent lathering.
Now add the fragrance and extract to add a nutty and exotic fragrance to your shampoo.
Store in the fridge in an old, empty shampoo bottle and it lasts for a month.
A Tip: You can use this to clean your eye makeup. Even though it burns, it is natural and is devoid of the eye-numbing chemicals that are actually present in the ‘no tear’ removers.
