Rosemary and Cedarwood Shampoo

Conventional detergent shampoos can strip the hair of its natural oils, as well as being harmful to the water’s ecosystems. By ditching the chemicals and opting instead for this homemade version, you can take care of your hair without the need for parabens and sulphates.

Rice milk and rosemary oil each contain vitamins that encourage hair growth, whilst cedarwood reduces scalp dryness.
