Things you need-
- 1/2 cup besan/chickpea flour/gram flour
- 3 tablespoons orange peel powder
- Essential oil (optional)
In a bowl, combine together flour and orange peel powder. Give it a quick mix.
Now, since the shampoo will not have any scent you can add in few drops of essential oils. Orange essential oil is the best choice here because it compliments the orange peel powder used and also has anti-dandruff benefits.
Store the powder in an air-tight jar away from moisture. To use, mix a small amount of the powder with aloe vera juice or gel and massage on your scalp and hair. Rinse and condition as usual.
If your hair feels too dry after wash then use coconut oil hair spray.
Quick Tips: This shampoo works wonders for all hair types but if you have extreme dry hair then use a conditioner or add honey or oil to the shampoo to moisturize your hair naturally. Try using a hot oil treatment before using the shampoo to make your hair longer, stronger and healthier.
