Manufacturers have also made people believe through their numerous commercials that all good shampoos foam If they do not foam, they probably will not clean the hair so well. The truth is that foam has little relevance in chemical composition. Foam results when the molecules of the substance with the cleaning ability gather around air and not hair oils. This creates millions of bubbles. So, all the ads showing people with tons of foam in the head just give consumers the wrong idea that hair can only be well-cleaned when there are large quantities of foam
On the other hand, too much foam shows you are using too much shampoo. Homemade shampoos are not really meant to foam In the absence of chemical ingredients, the foam is relatively rare. But you can choose your own smell, according to your mood or your hair’s needs. And the best part is that you can use plenty of ingredients, including foods, to prepare your hair wash.
Below are some of the ingredients used in homemade shampoos:
Castile soap (available in many homemade shampoos)
jojoba/grape seed/olive/coconut oil
Vitamin E oil
Fruits: lemon, orange, avocado
Honey Aloe Vera Apple cider vinegar
Baking soda Corn starch
Each ingredient brings tremendous benefits to your hair. Your own part is to find out what is best for you. For example, dried herbs work differently on various hair types. Use the following herbs for different hair types.
Normal Hair: use calendula, basil, nettle, linden flowers, sage or chamomile.
Oily Hair: use horsetail, lavender, lemongrass, peppermint, thyme, burdock root or bay leaf.
Dry Hair: use elder flowers, chamomile, sage, parsley leaves or horsetail.
Scalp ailments: the best herbs are lavender, chamomile, calendula, oregano, peppermint, thyme and eucalyptus.
