Things You’ll Need:
- 1/4 teaspoon dried St. John’s wort
- 1/4 teaspoon dried nettle
- 1/4 teaspoon dried sage
- 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 1/2 teaspoon onion juice
- Essential oils
- Large mixing bowl
- Electric mixer
- Full bottle of your favorite shampoo
- Large plastic shampoo bottle
- Glass measuring cup
Boil 1/2 a cup of water in the glass measuring cup.The easiest way to do this is to microwave the water on high for two minutes. If it reaches a rolling boil before two minutes are up, stop the microwave and move on.
2This is dried rosemary. You will be able to find most of the herbs needed to promote hair growth in your spice rack.
Steep the St. John’s wort, nettle, sage, basil and rosemary for 20 minutes. This will create an infusion that you can mix into your shampoo.
Strain out the herbs. You can catch the “tea” in the large mixing bowl.
4It is often easier to find onion juice in powdered form than it is to buy it as a liquid or juice the onion yourself.
Add the onion juice. This can make your shampoo a little smelly, so you may decide to leave this ingredient out.
Mix in the entire bottle of shampoo. The resulting mixture will be a little runnier than your original shampoo, but it should have a smooth and even color and consistency.
Add 5 drops of essential oils. This will help mask the onion smell.
Store your new, improved shampoo in a large plastic shampoo bottle. You can use your new shampoo every day just as you did before, and you should see results in about a month as your hair becomes more durable and begins to gain length.
