DIY Honey Shampoo


DIY Honey Shampoo

If you are looking for a healthier more natural way to wash your hair without stripping it of all its essential oils, which is the case with most hair care products on our shelves, then I would recommend you try out this deliciously natural honey shampoo.

Raw honey is a natural  anti-fungal and antibacterial with a pH of 4. This makes the scalp slightly more acidic which may aid in combating dandruff as the pH of the scalp ranges from 4-7.

Honey is also known to moisturise the hair and in turn help with frizz as well as decrease the amount of washes needed.

Another advantage to using this home-made shampoo is that it is quick and easy to whip up! Simply use 3 Tablespoons of filtered water for every 1 Tablespoon of Honey.

I recommend using filtered water as it is less reactive with the raw honey. Also, please use raw honey as regular honey is highly processed and subjected to high levels of heat, killing all its healing properties.

Honey shampoo de-tangles and softens the hair so there is no need for conditioner. Simply wet hair, massage shampoo onto the scalp for 5 minutes and rinse.

  1. Hi!
    This looks interesting but I’m slightly hesitant to try this out.. Won’t this leave any residue in hair even after washing off? Have you tried it?

    1. Hi canzash 🙂 that is a very common question that a lot of you are asking.. I also thought the very same thing but when I tried it I actually found it helped break down the oils and remove the dirt from hair just like a regular shampoo..however everyone has slightly different hair.I would recommend that if you do find it too rich the best thing to do would be to lesson the amount of honey-to-water ratio and to remember a conditioner is not necessary when using the Honey Shampoo! I look forward to hearing how you find it on your hair! 🙂

    1. Hi, thank you for reading my article on the DIY Honey Shampoo. It is not harmful at all to the skin. You can even then add some lavender or other oils to the mix for the skin or you can do the ‘Cleopatra style’ milk and honey mix to bath in. This will leave your skin silky soft and glowing 🙂
