Coconut Rose Shampoo DIY

ImageMake a wonderfully fragranced, vegan, organic shampoo at home, using Dr. Bronner’s magic soap!

Dr. Bronner’s and the other ingredients should be easy to find your local health food store. If you can’t find liquid vitamin E oil, you can substitute vitamin E capsules as I did (instructions on how to extract the oil below).

The castile soap thoroughly cleanses the hair, while the coconut milk, coconut oil and vitamin E oil all help to nourish and hydrate. The natural ingredients lock in moisture and ward off frizz, making it a perfect summer shampoo DIY.

My hair felt very soft after using this shampoo, and my curls were more bouncy and defined. I could also smell a faint rosy scent that lasted for a few hours. If you’re not a fan of a roses, you can use any scent variety you like (such as lavendar).

I’d love to see your variations on this recipe and how it helped tame your summer hair, so tweet me a picture or tag me on Instagram!

Coconut Rose Shampoo

  • 1 cup coconut milk (full fat)
  • 1 1/3 cup Dr. Bronner’s rose liquid soap
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. vitamin E oil

If the coconut oil is white and solid, melt in a microwave or on the stove until it becomes a clear liquid. If you’re using vitamin E gelcaps, pierce each pill with a toothpick and squeeze liquid into a container. Add coconut oil, coconut milk and liquid soap, cover with a lid, and shake until well combined.

Use a quarter-sized amount of the shampoo (depending on the thickness and length of your hair) to shampoo as normal. Follow with a conditioner if desired. The shampoo can be stored in your shower for up to one month.
