So… today’s homemade shampoo and conditioner recipes will shock you with their simplicity. So much so, that I am going to take a bit of space to share why it’s good to make your own shampoo and conditioner – and some of the benefits of taking care of your hair a little differently.
Here are the four biggest benefits I’ve experienced in making my own natural (and chemical-free) shampoo and conditioner:

One of the best reasons in the world to go meatless at least one day a week is because it saves you so much money! Meat prices seem to have sky-rocketed lately… and if you want to eat organic, local, grass-fed, or the like – you’re paying a pretty penny for the privilege of noshing on animal protein.
I am a firm believer that everyone has to figure out how their body wants to eat. We aren’t all made the same, and I do not advocate for a one-size-fits all diet. So I suggest going meatless now and then more as a money-saving, Earth-stewardship, eco-friendly, mindful-consumption sort of option. It just makes common sense – on multiple fronts – and with the right tools can be entirely painless… one might even say surprisingly enjoyable.
