Create Your Own Bespoke Shampoo For Your Hair Type

shampoo base

With the hundreds of hair care brands out there, many people turn to either a shampoo that is on sale, or just go for their old favourite famous name that is advertised on TV. However, when choosing your shampoo, price and popularity are not the only two things you should consider.

There is no one-fits-all solution with hair care as everyone’s hair is different. Furthermore, your hair changes as your get older – it can go through dry stages, your scalp can get sore or your follicles can become oilier. Therefore, it is important to consider these factors when you are looking at the overwhelming aisles of shampoos and conditioners.

However, there is another way. Instead of being inundated by the multitudes of different bottles all promising to do different things, you can create your own personalised hair care routine which is specifically tailored to your own current hair type. By doing this, you can imbue your hair with the goodness it needs, and see quick and effective results.

Making your own shampoos and conditioners is much easier than it seems. Using a shampoo base means that the basic cleansing ingredients are already combined, and you can then tailor the product to your needs by using all-natural essential oils. The same applies to conditioners, where you can use a ready-formulated base product and then personalise it according to your own hair type. Here is a guide on which oils you should incorporate in your bespoke hair care based on common hair issues.

Dry scalp and dandruff

If you have recently noticed dandruff, or if it is been a problem you have had for a while, it means the skin cells on your scalp die quicker and as such shed to make room for new ones. This process for those with dandruff is much quicker than for someone with an average scalp, and therefore it is best to control the shedding by regulating the production of skin cells. Tea tree is an essential oil that is brilliant for this. It clears the follicles and helps to calm any fungal infections, preventing dandruff from forming.

Dry hair

Whether your hair is naturally coarse or overdyeing has led the strands to become dry and dehydrated, it can lead to a frizzy look that may demand extra time in front of the mirror. Your hair may even snap or break due to the follicles being damaged. Therefore your shampoo and conditioner need to contain something packed with nutrients and moisturising properties, which will leave you with a silkier, smoother mane. Try avocado oil for a shot of amino acids and vitamins for a deep-conditioning effect.

Greasy hair

If you find your hair gets greasy quickly after washing, your current shampoo is not working hard enough for your hair type. Hair that is oily usually indicates that the sebaceous glands on your scalp are clogged, and the serum that is produced is being dissipated through the hair. In order to combat this, lemon oil’s antiseptic qualities help to strip the hair of excess oil, cleansing your scalp’s pores and ensuring a thorough clean.

Sore, inflamed scalp

Just as you might have sensitive skin, you can also have a sensitive scalp. Stress, dyes or increased heat styling can all cause the roots of your hair and the skin surrounding them to feel sore and tight, leading to an inflamed scalp. Chamomile is an essential oil that works wonders on this common hair problem. It supports the regeneration and care of cells in your skin, repairing those that may have been damaged by harsh products, environmental factors or an unbalanced diet.

If you are interested in creating a tailored hair care routine that is suited to your exact hair type, why not try looking into making your own shampoos and conditioners. You can purchase the base products as well as the essential oils that are perfect for your tresses at herbalists, and create a range of lotions and potions more suited to you than anything you can buy at the supermarket or beauty store.
