Things you need-
- 1/4 cup besan/chickpea flour/gram flour
- 1/4 cup aloe vera powder
- Essential oil (optional)
In a bowl, combine together flour and aloe vera powder. Give it a quick mix. Now, since the shampoo will not have any scent you can add in few drops of essential oils. Lavender or tea tree essential oil is the best choice here because it compliments the powder 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 the wash then use a small amount of coconut oil. READ MORE – TURMERIC NIGHT SERUM – CLEAR AND BRIGHT SKIN
