This formulation is something that I have been using for many years. First collect the following items:
- 4 oz of castile soap with any scent is that available – plain, peppermint, eucalyptus.
- ½ oz of rosemary - stimulates the hair follicles and helps to prevent premature baldness
- ½ oz of sage – has antioxidants and keeps things from spoiling and is antibacterial
- ½ oz of nettles – acts as a blood purifier, blood stimulator, contains a large source of nutrients for hair growth
- ½ of lavender – controls the production of sebaceous gland oil and reduces itchy and flaky scalp conditions
- 2000 mg of MSM – provides organic sulfur to your scalp, which improves the health and strength of your hair. It also helps to drive herbal nutrient into the skin and follicles where they can do the most good.
- One empty 8 oz plastic bottle, or any other empty shampoo or soap bottle.
Mix the herbs in a mason jar, which has a lid. Boil 2 cups of distilled water. Add 3 heaping tablespoons of the mixed herbs into the boiling water. Pull the boiling water and herbs off the stove. Let the herb mixture sit for 30 – 40 minutes. Put the 2000mg of MSM into the herb mixture after 30 minutes of cooling. After 40 minutes and the MSM is melted, strain the herbal mixture into a bowl.
Pour 2 to 2 1/2 oz of strained herbal tea into the 8 oz plastic bottle. Now, pour the 4 oz of castile soap into the 8 oz plastic bottle. Cap the bottle and shake to mix the ingredients.
The shampoo is now finished and ready for use. Use this as a base for all of the shampoos you make. You can add different herbs as you learn what these herbs do and how they help your hair. You can vary the ingredients according to your taste. But now you have a shampoo that has no additives
that can harm you.

HOME REMEDY FOR PREMATURE GRAY HAIR

Take a small, whole white karisalankanni plant and pound it thoroughly. Make a fine paste of the pounded plant using a mixer. Make dime-sized tablets out of the paste and dry them in shade for a couple days. Once thoroughly dried, store these tablets in a bottle.
