  • 1-2 tsp of Honey
  • 1 tsp of coconut oil
  • Few drops of Essential oil (optional)


  1. Put 1-2 tablespoons of gram flour depending on the length of your hair in a bowl.
  2. Stir in small amounts of water until it becomes a paste of your desired consistency or the consistency of a normal shampoo.
  3. Make sure to break any lumps or filter the shampoo for a smooth consistency.
  4. Since the shampoo will not have any scent you can add in few drops of essential oils.

To Use: While in shower, massage the flour shampoo on to damp hair and scalp for few minutes before you rinse off thoroughly with warm water. If your hair feels too dry after wash then use coconut oil hair spray.
