Moisturizing Aloe Honey No Poo Recipe


ALOE HONEY NO POO RECIPIE

About a year ago….

Me: ARG! This No Poo Hair thing is driving me nuts! My hair feels like straw and I can’t help thinking I should be shampooing my hair!

Ron: Then shampoo your hair already.

Me: (whining) NOO! You don’t get it. If I shampoo, I’ll just ruin the whole thing and will have to start over.

Ron: Well, why not whip up some kind of  potion to wash your hair that won’t undo what you’ve done. Problem solved. (short pause) What’s for dinner?

Me: (frowning, cuz he’s right) Yeah, maybe. Let me do some research….

And that is how I came up with my Aloe Honey No Poo Recipe for “I just gotta wash my hair” shampoo.

Aloe Honey No Poo Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/4 c of homemade aloe gel (learn how, it’s easy! NOTE: You can skip the Vitamin C & E since you will be using it right away) or purchase aloe gel online (16 oz. for less than $6 bucks)
  • 2 TBS Honey

Directions

  1. Combine all in your mini-food processor or blender. Make as smooth as possible. You don’t want any aloe chunks left in your hair.
  2. Take straight to the shower and shampoo. Leave on for a few minutes (the longer the better) than rinse out completely with water. That’s it.

UPDATE 3/27: For those of you wanting to grow your own aloe vera, you can order aloe vera plants
online from Amazon for about $5 (Who knew? They really do have everything.)

Notes
1. If you make a big batch, it will only keep in the fridge for up to 3 days – so only make what you need.
2. Can be used in between No Poo’s.
3. I have never used store bought aloe gel since I grow my own I tried ready-made aloe gel and found that it gives the same amazing results as fresh. Just make sure you get a quality aloe gel (not one with dyes, fragrance and alcohol).

Benefits

Feels kinda like real shampoo (kinda)
Is really good for adding moisture to your hair
Makes hair shiny
Can help shorten your transition phase if you are dealing with cotton/strawlike hair

Why It’s A Great No Poo Recipe for a No Poo Shampoo

If I’m going to go to the effort to make something I want to know why it’s good for my hair. That way I can adjust the ingredients and understand the reason for the results I get after I wash. Knowledge is power – that’s what momma always said.

Aloe Vera Gel

Not just for hair care, aloe is great for burns (including sun burns), soothing dry skin and more!

Aloe Vera Benefits For Hair

  • Relieves Itchy Scalp
  • Reduces Redness & Imflammation
  • Adds luster, shine and strength
  • Promotes new hair growth
  • pH balacing
  • Anti-fungal and anti-bacterial
  • Natural humectant
  • Help with dandruff, psoriasis and seborrhea

Promotes Hair Growth

Aloe contains enzymes that are able to slough off dead skin cells and sebum (the oil your scalp naturally produces) on the scalp that could be clogging your hair follicles. By clearing the follicle of this debris your new hair is free to grow! Aloe is also alkaline and helps to bring your scalp into a more balanced pH  – which also creates a happy environment for new hair growth.

Relieves Itchy, Dry Scalp, Dandruff and Scalp Psoriasis

Aloe vera gel helps retain moisture and has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal qualities, in addition to the exfoliating abilities mentioned above. This makes it a great weapon against the very things that cause itchy, dry scalp, dandruff and psoriasis. Simply put, it helps to exfoliate the dead skin and sebum build-up that bacteria and fungus like to feed on it. Any “beasties” left on your scalp are then usually destroyed by aloe’s anti-fungal and antibacterial properties. In a study reported in Archives of Dermatology more than 80 percent of the patients treated with aloe vera showed improvement in their scalp psoriasis. If you are suffering from itchy, dry, no poo scalp aloe will help!

Aloe Vera Nourishes and Conditions Hair

Aloe gel has a similar chemical composition to keratin (that’s the protein in hair cells) which enables it to penetrate the hair shaft (root to tip) more easily, according to Diane Gage, author of Aloe Vera: Nature’s Soothing Healer. Aloe’s essential amino acids give your hair luster and strength.

It only stands to reason that the longer you leave the Aloe Honey shampoo on your head, the more time it will have to work it’s natural magic on your scalp and hair.

Honey Benefits For Hair

  • Promotes new hair growth
  • Natural humctant
  • Anti-bacterial  (some Native American tribes were known to put honey on wounds to help prevent infection)
  • Excellent source of vitamins and minerals
  • Relives itching and scaling
  • Tastes good (okay, not really a concern for your hair, but instead the person with the hair who likes to lick the spoon)

Promotes Hair Growth

Honey promotes hair growth in much the same way aloe vera gel does. It creates an anti-bacterial environment where the beasties that feast off of your dead scalp cells and sebum cannot thrive. Excess buildup of skin cells and oil can clog the follicle and prevent new growth from reaching the surface.

Honey is Hydrating

A natural humectant, honey provides great hydrating effects for your scalp. This helps relieve dry, itchy, flaky scalp. A 2001 study held at the Dubai Specialized Medical Centre had patients who were experiencing hair loss, scaling and itchy scalp rub honey onto their scalps for 2 – 3 minutes per day. The results were the same for every patient; they all experienced relief from the itching and less hair fall-out.

Can Help Shorten Your No Poo Method Transition Phase

The one-two punch of aloe and honey provide help to create a happy scalp for happy hair (not to mention all the great things aloe does for your hair as well). What is noteworthy is that the exfoliating abilities of the aloe gel became evident during my personal No Poo journey. It wasn’t until after I started using my Aloe Honey No Poo Shampoo that I noticed white, waxy, cylindrical shaped “flakes” in my hair. I can only assume it was the aloe breaking down the years of build-up from long term product use and commercial shampoos. This lasted about a week. Once all the gunk had “broken free” from my hair – my days in the transition phase were numbered. No Poo nirvana was right around the corner.

    hey!
    i’m a hish school student in north texas, i’ve been “no pooing” for 2 weeks now. i had told all my girlfriends about it and they wont leave me alone that it looks good(sometimes, otheres its super greasy) but it just plain feels dirty. im looking into the aloe-honey mix, but i dont have any aloe plants, can you help me out? and would a cheap-walmart-brand aloe be alright to use?

    -Elle

    • Leah Dossey says:

      Elle, you should be able to find an aloe plant at Lowe’s, Home Depot or the garden center in Wal-Mart if you live in Texas. Get one now and pop it in the ground to give it time to grow for later use. If you buy aloe gel you are looking for 100% pure aloe gel. Make sure it doesn’t have alcohol in it (like some of the aloe gels for sunburns do).
      Oily Hair Days Use a dry shampoo to soak up the oil. (cornstarch if you are blonde and cocoa powder if you are brunette).
      You are going through transition right now. You are going to have good days and bad days. Really scrub / massage your scalp with the baking soda mixture and allow it to sit on your hair while you wash, shave, etc. Rinse out then apply your vinegar rinse to just the length of your hair. If it feel heavy or looks greasy after, use less vinegar rinse.

      Hang tough and congrats for being a smart young woman taking charge of her hair care!

  2. Jen says:

    How much of the aloe plant would I need to cut off to get 1/4 cup?

    • Leah Dossey says:

      Jen, it depends on the size of your aloe spears. I have a really mature plant so 1 spear does it for me. Start with 1 or 2 and increase if needed. If you get aloe from a friend, the cut spears will keep in the fridge for 3-5 days. Better yet, ask them for one of the “babies”. Aloes planted in the ground put out little baby aloe plants at the bottom of the parent plant. You can grab one of those and start your own parent plant. :)

  3. Mica says:

    My hair has already adjusted to the No Poo method, and I love it! My hair seems to be so much healthier. My mom & sisters they are in awh of the change they see in my once greasy-every-other-day hair. This is Aloe Honey shampoo sounds to die for! Should I still try it if my hair already seems to be in balance?

    • Leah Dossey says:

      Congrats on your lovely No Poo hair!
      You should totally try the Aloe Honey shampoo. It won’t do anything to your scalp to upset the natural balance you’ve obtained. It’s a great treatment for a “home spa day”. :)

  4. Christine says:

    This could not have come at a better time-thank you! I’m three months into No ‘Poo, and I’m finding dandruff is getting bad on my crown. I thought I’d have to give up and go back to medicated shampoo. It seems this is a common problem for no ‘pooers, and a post on PaleoHacks led me here. I can’t wait to try this! My only question is: do I still need to do a rinse? I don’t use apple cider vinegar, I use lemon juice, and the acid was supposed to balance the pH after using baking soda. If I do aloe/honey instead, do I still need the acidic rinse?
    Christine recently posted..Things are looking up!My Profile

    • Leah Dossey says:

      Christine, there is no need for the vinegar rinse after using this Honey Aloe “Shampoo”. You could use an herbal tea rinse if you wanted to. If you have brown hair an herbal tea steeped from fresh rosemary adds shine, promotes hair growth and with frequent use can keep your color dark and rich. If you have blonde hair a chamomile tea rinse will help add dimension and shine to your hair. Glad you are enjoying your No Poo hair! :)

  5. Gen says:

    Do I Use The Honey Aloe Mix On Wet Or Dry Hair Do I Let It Sit For Any Length Of Time?

  6. Michelle says:

    Hi! I’m going to use this for the first time tomorrow with natural aloe vera. I’m wondering if this can be used as a hair mask for half an hour prior to washing or if I have to use it in the shower, wet my hair and use it for as long as I can?

    • Leah says:

      You can absolutely use this as a hair mask. Your hair and scalp will love it. Wet your hair, apply. Leave on for time desired and rinse out.

  7. Maura says:

    I will try this method but I have a question regarding the cleaning shampoo, how can I make it or where can I buy it?
    Thanks

    • Leah says:

      Maura, what cleaning shampoo are you referring to? If you mean the Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo, you can purchase it at Walgreens.

  8. Kristine says:

    How many shampoos would your recipe do? Or do you use the whole thing each time?

    • Leah says:

      Great question! Depending on the length of your hair this will work for 1 or 2 washes. You will want to store any left-overs in the fridge and use within 3-4 days as it is an all-natural preparation that includes sugars (honey) and bacteria LOVE honey – so into the fridge it goes. :) You can take it out and allow it to warm on the counter before the second use.

  9. Leslie says:

    This looks really great. I just did the BS and V today for the first time and im really excited about it, could you give me an idea of what my hair routine should be over the next week or so as far how often I should wash my hair with BS and then how often I should wash with the av and honey. Thanks so much! (PS in case you need to know, my hair is thin and curly and pretty short, hopefully thatll change soon :)

    • Leah says:

      Hi Leslie! You will want to go as long as possible between washings. This varies from person to person, but just wait till you can’t stand your hair anymore. You can just do the BS/Vinegar or alternate between the BS/Vinegar and Aloe/Honey. Good luck!

  10. Ria Burgess says:

    Help! I’m a first time user and I really want this to work. My hair is thinning at the crown and I’m only 27 so I’m at my wit’s end.
    Issue #1. I pre-conditioned with coconut oil because I have a major problem with my hair getting super tangled. One of the reasons is because the bottom half of my hair is damaged from coloring. Anyways, my hair is dry and the entire mane is oily. When I washed, I used a lot of baking soda more than your recommended dosage to try and get the oil out and it didn’t work. I’d like to keep pre-conditioning my hair until it feels healthy. Any tips on how to get the oil out?

    Issue #2 My hair type. I have 3 different hair textures. The hair on my crown is thin and limp very oily. It forms a persistent part, exposing a balding spot. My roots are oily throughout. The front and side sections are frizzy and the back section, buried under the top layers is almost smooth. When I wake up in the morning my hair clumps up in greasy sections. I never look nice in the morning, no matter how nicely I styled my hair the night before. Any recommendations on use?

    • Leah says:

      Hi Ria! I’m so glad you reached out. I’m glad to help anyway that I can. :)
      1. Coconut Oil Removal – You will need a Low Poo for this. No Poo is too gentle for that purpose. Shea Moisture Organic is my favorite Low Poo. You may need to lather, rinse, repeat depending on how much coconut oil is in your hair to get it all out. Don’t stop using it though – it is awesome for your hair.

      2. Thinning Hair – I would first consult with your doctor to make sure your thyroid (are your eyebrows thinning too?) is the cause or perhaps you could be low on iron. Take a quality multi-vitamin that includes Biotin (Biotin is great for your hair). It will take about 4 – 6 weeks before you notice any real difference from the Biotin…but it is a great thing to do for you hair. Also, start making a natural rosemary hair tea (tonic) to use on your scalp. Rosemary increases circulation and helps to stimulate hair growth. Put it in a spray bottle or squirt bottle and massage into your scalp and allow to sit for as long as possible before each wash. You can also use it as a final rinse for your hair after you’ve rinsed with the vinegar solution…OR…you could add some of the rosemary tonic to your vinegar solution for an easy 2-1 rinse. Just keep a separate container of the tonic for application to your scalp prior to your washes. Aloe is also great for thinning hair. Use the Aloe Honey “shampoo” between your BS/Vinegar washes to help keep your scalp happy and promote hair growth. Aloe can also be rubbed directly onto the scalp prior to washing. New hair growth takes time – so be patient. But please go visit your doctor to make sure there isn’t a medical reason for your hair loss.

      3. In regards to your hair type, do you have Asian, African American or Anglo hair? I can better assist you knowing this.
      Ria, please come join our No Poo group for further support, help and a great group of ladies who are all No Poo divas. :)

  11. Aubrey says:

    Sounds great! Do you use it in place of the baking soda wash or along with the regular routine?

    • Leah says:

      You got it Aubrey – if using it as “shampoo” you use it in place of the bs/vinegar. It also makes a great hair mask and scalp treatment that you can use after you No Poo as a final step before rinsing out with water.

      • Aubrey says:

        Thank you. I have one more question. I’m making my BS solution ahead of time and keeping it in the shower. Do I use a whole cup (method 1) on my head each time I wash? Same for the vinegar, a whole cup each time?

      • Leah says:

        Aubrey, Great question. :) Use what you need. 1 cup is a general starting point. Depending on the length of your hair you may need more or less and yes, you can totally store it in the shower. If you are using a spray bottle for your vinegar rinse, just spray on until it saturates the length of your hair.

  12. Hannah says:

    I straighten my hair.. Will it harm my hair less with the no poo?

    • Leah says:

      Hannah, how do you straighten your hair? Chemically or with a flat iron?

      • Hannah says:

        I use a flat iron acouple times a week

      • Leah says:

        Keep your flat iron on the lowest setting to achieve the results you desire. Intense heat is never good for your hair long term and can cause damage. The most important thing to remember if you flat iron is NOT to use any oils on your hair prior to using the flat iron – you will literally fry you hair. Using them after is fine – just make sure your hair is free from oils each time you use the iron. Fried hair is never pretty. I use my hair dryer all the time and flat iron from time to time myself.

  13. Cindy says:

    Hi, I have been wanting to to do my own homemade shampoo for my kids and I, would this work for the whole family (5 kids) with different hair textures? Also, can I only use only this instead of baking soda? I was reading the comments and started getting confused.

    • Leah says:

      Hi Cindy! After your family is out of transition, you can totally use this as your regular “shampoo”. You can start of using this straight away – just be sure to clarify everyone’s hair first. The kiddos will probably have a shorter transition time, but everyone is different. The aloe/honey is super gentle and suitable for all hair types.

  14. Liz M. says:

    So, I went no-poo 2 weeks ago and am going to assume I’m still in a transition stage. I tried the aloe shampoo recipe the day after I did a coconut oil conditioning treatment (which I will NEVER do again. It’s a mess, it’s not for my hair at all and I wound up having to use shampoo to get it out after doing no poo for only 2 weeks…I feel like I’m back to square 1 now). So rather than using BS/ACV after a real shampoo I used the above aloe honey recipe. I will try it again but it made my hair a tangled mess. I tried to make sure I rinsed it all out (hand shower on full blast for at least a good 5 minutes) but it left my hair a tangled mess that I couldn’t even get through. I wound up using my toddlers leave-in conditioner. Do you have any detangler suggestions other than an ACV rinse, I’m just trying not to do that too often.

  15. Kerry says:

    Your site has some great tips, thanks so much! My daughter and I are just getting started with the no poo routine, but I would love some advice. She spends a full week with me, then a full week with him. I’d rather not subject the poor man to this until she’s adjusted and we’ve gotten all the kinks worked out and I trust she can do it on her own. In the meantime what would be the least disruptive while she’s with him? Low poo? I have the L’Oreal to wash out our coconut oil masks. Maybe send her with a batch of aloe/honey? Will that keep for a week if it were refrigerated? I just don’t want to start over with her every other week.

  16. Kristina says:

    Thanks for this post! I’m a few months into no poo and everything was going great until a few weeks ago I started noticing flakes and they have gotten progressively worse. I’m heading out this week for aloe Vera oil so I can try this. I have been so close to just giving it up.

    • Leah says:

      Don’t give up! Sometimes seasonal changes can cause your scalp to get dry and flake. Dry scalp is easy to fix either with oil treatments (wash out with low poo), or aloe honey “shampoo”. Just make sure you get aloe gel, not aloe oil. :)

  17. Kelsey says:

    Hi Leah! I was just wondering what kind of honey you use? I have raw organic honey at home but it’s more of a buttery consistency then traditional honey. Also when I’ve used it in hair treatments in the past it tends to not like to rinse out of my hair.

    • Leah says:

      I don’t use a special honey. I just use what I have on hand (which is usually local with the comb still in it). I haven’t used raw honey – so perhaps that’s the issue. Honey should EASILY rinse from your hair.

  18. Nathalie Dufort says:

    Hi!

    I want to start the No Poo in a week. In a month I will get a treatment for ‘uncurl” my hair (they don’t flat iron it they just put the products on). I get it every 8-10 months (this time it has been a year since I had it). The name of that treatment is “Yuko System”. I wanna try it on “virgen hair” this time (it may last longer!). The things is I just turned 41 and I now need to color my (white) hair too so I will get the treatment and 2-3 weeks after a color. I am wondering now if baking soda is not abrasive for color?

    I noted on your picture that you have color too in your hair so maybe you can tell me about it…

    Thank you
    Nathalie

    • Leah says:

      Hi Nathalle! Talk to your stylist about the chemicals used in the color that is being applied to your hair and if there will be an issue. No Poo is color safe and effective for many, many people, however there have been a few reports of the baking soda changing the color of the dye applied. Since the chemicals used in hair dye vary from product to product my best suggestion, again is to talk to your stylist.
      On a personal note, so far (fingers crossed) I haven’t had to color my hair to cover any grey or white hair. I have a few – but not enough to need to start coloring my hair (yet!). My hair that you see in the photo is just my hair – no color, no commercial shampoo, no chemical treatments. Just my natural no-poo hair. :) (I sure hope it stays that way for a LOT longer….not looking forward to having to color my hair. Turning 40 has been hard enough! lol)

  19. Sally says:

    Hello and thanks for the great recipe! I’ve been trying BS/ACV for many months now, and my hair has reacted very badly to the BS (even in varying ratios). Do you think I could just use aloe/honey to clean my hair regularly?

    • Leah says:

      Absolutely! It won’t damage your hair in anyway and is a great no poo method to try if BS/Vinegar isn’t working for you.

  20. Nina says:

    What do you ladies do when you go to get your hair dyed??? Do you go through the transition phase after each time?? Thank you!!!!

  21. Audra Silva says:

    So would Aloe Vera juice work instead of the gel?

      I have Lilly of the desert whole leaf Aloe Vera juice. Would you use the same amount of juice as the gel? I tried the BS/ACV. Made my hair so dry & had a lot of hair loss. Had a lot of hair in the drain. Thanks

  22. elisa says:

    Hi, I was wondering why you say that bacterias love honey? I’ve always read that honey is anti-bacterial and it will last indefinitely without spoiling. Here is just one link I found that supports this: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/quora/why-doesnt-honey-spoil_b_1914824.html
    So given that information do you think it might be okay at room temperature for a while, or have you experienced it going bad? I want to make a big batch for my son. Thanks

  23. Ebony says:

    Hi! I’m new to the whole”no poo” movement. But i absolutely would love to try it. For years i have tried soooooo many different shampoos and conditioners that moisturize and give volume without weighing down my Precious locks. I am African American with fine ear lobe length hair and I currently have relaxed hair. I’m scared to try it because of the transition phase of my hair getting used to the no poo. Please help! Thanks :)

  24. Adeline says:

    I have shoulder length red thick curly hair. I would like to try this out. I plan to do the no poo method and use aloe/honey in between washes. I also would like to use jojoba oil or Argan oil after each wash. I plan on taking fish oil and biotin. Do I need to do any masks? I haven’t started yet but plan to soon. I would appreciate any advice you have :)

  25. Rosie says:

    Hi Leah Great Website!

    I am one of those poor souls that has been battling with dandruff and have tried everything from medicated to Jason’s to the regular stuff and nothing works. I’m only 28 and my hair is growing thin. Today was my first day trying out the Aloe Honey moisturizer. I would like to know your advice about how long should I continue the Aloe Honey moisturizer before transitioning to the NO Poo method. Or can I do both treatments at the same time? What would you recommend? Thank You in advance!

  26. Faith Whitmore says:

    Hi Leah, I would love to try your potion. However, I was wondering if sugar (perhaps brown kind) can be substituted in place of honey since they both act as cleansers? Also somewhere you mentioned using cocoa powder to soak up scalp oil; did you mean plain CHOCOLATE powder? And also, would you rinse out the cocoa powder after letting it absorb the oil or do would you let it stay in the hair? Thx.

  27. Faith Whitmore says:

    Hi Leah, I also want to try the BS/ACV method along with your potion, but before getting started would like to know if the ACV rinse should be applied from roots to end of hair since it is meant to balance the ph? Will applying it roots make scalp greasy but avoiding the scalp might leave that area too alkaline? Any thoughts? Thx.

  28. gen38 says:

    I have been no poo for a couple of weeks now and my transition is getting better. I tried the baking soda and vinegar once and said no way. Then I tried coconut milk and aloe and my hair was more manageable but I think I will try this now. I want to put castor oil on my scalp a couple of times a week but I’m not sure how I would get the oil out using no poo. I did try conditioner and it worked well but I would like to find something natural to get rid of the oil. Any ideas??? Thanks, great blog!!

  29. Kirsten Dickson says:

    This sounds great! Also, in response to a few earlier comments a) honey is the only “food” the doesn’t rot and b) if you are on we’ll water not city, sometimes the minerals in your water react with the baking soda in a bad way causing the hair shaft to swell and become roughened feeling ie: dry straw-like, and limp looking. I’ve experienced this firsthand with hard water.

  30. christina coronado says:

    I have no idea what I did wrong :-( But my hair wasn’t soft after I rinsed it out….Any idea what I’ve done wrong? I used a Jäson brand of pure aloe vera gel…could that be the problem? I do have an aloe plant, but its too little to get anything from it. :-( Help please…I’d love something to really make my hair soft during all this no-poo transition. Thanks in advance for any help. :-)

  31. Kate says:

    Hmm , would just juicing a whole aloe leaf and using the gooey stuff that comes out work? It’s alot of work to scrap out the gel from the long an skinny aloe leaves I have. Also, have you ever considered using this as a replacement for the baking soda/acv? I am a months and 3/4 into no poo, and my hair is still dry and gross at the end and oily at roots.

    • Christina c. says:

      I’m not using my aloe plane right now. It’s too small, so I used a Jäson brand of natural aloe gel 98% .. so not sure if that’s why it’s still dry and not soft like everyone says theirs turns out :(

      Do you have the boar hair brush! You really need it to succeed with oily hair.
      And I started to wash my hair with more soda. And then brushing it every night.
      No coconut oil for me! Thats to oily for my hair.
      And only using the vinegar at the end of the hair.

  32. Jet says:

    Hi Leah,

    I am no pooing voor 2 months now and I am very happy about the result!
    But it was time to dye my hair (blond) and after dyeing I have to use something to repair the hair!
    I tried it with the aloe vera/honey mixture but that didnt work. So I ended up using my old conditioner because I was scared of damaging my hair.
    Do you have an alternative mask of conditioner to use right after dyeing your hair chemically?

    • Chrissy says:

      Have you ever tried using oils? Jojoba oil is suppose to be good olive oil too, I’m fixing to either get avocado oil or coconut oil I have heard both are great :) Dr adorable on amazon is good I got castor oil and my jojoba oil and lavender EOil from there :)

Also after I color my hair and I use shampoo to get it out do y’all think my hair will have a fit?

  34. Yolanda says:

    Hello, I have tried over and over again with the “No Poo” method including the transition time. I wanted it to work so bad. (ACV/Baking Soda) I have also tried the Mud shampoo, which I thought was working the best but my hair feels like Hay straw! I use Herbatint a natural hair dye and it leaves my hair the shiniest it’s ever been. I just dyed it the other day and have only rinsed my hair in the shower. I am so scared to wash again with my homemade mud shampoo. Do you think this Honey/Aloe gel shampoo will work for everyday/every other day shampooing? I have put aloe gel into my mud shampoo with no affect.

    Any Ideas would greatly be appreciated,

    I’ve been doing a lot of research on natural shampoo recipes and I am so confused I’m ready to just go back to commercial shampoo and conditioner! There is so much contradictory information I don’t know what to believe. This site says aloe is alkaline so it helps ph balance your scalp and hair. But everything else I’ve read says aloe is slightly acidic which is why it is good for returning your scalp and hair to its naturally slightly acidic state. Even water with its neutral ph level of 7 is more alkaline than your scalp and causes a degree of ph imbalance. So do I want to use something acidic or alkaline? I also read the baking soda/apple cider vinegar no ‘poo is not good for your scalp or hair because the bs is alkaline at a ph of 9 then clarifying with the acidic acv which causes damaging drastic ph changes. It is just very confusing and discouraging.

    Would this keep for longer if I froze some of it?
