      The recipe isn’t supposed to get “soapy.” Most shampoos contain chemicals that are harsh on your hair and strip the hair of it’s natural oils and these are the things that produce the suds. We commonly associate the suds with soap and cleansing but you can absolutely clean your hair without them. It may take your hair a little bit to get used to the shampoo as well, especially if you have been using normal shampoo for a while.

    I’ve made and used this shampoo; however, it makes my hair dry, stringy and unmanageable. Do you have a conditioner that I should be using also our just a vinegar rinse?

    • Dr. Josh Axe on

      As of now we just have the vinegar conditioner posted but you can use this recipe that I’ll be posting on the site soon!

      1 cup coconut oil
      1 tbsp jojoba oil
      1 tsp vitamin E oil
      1/2 cup yogurt

      Blend all the ingredients until whipped and use after the shampoo. Rinse well!

    Hello Dr. Axe! I like and appreciate all informations you are providing for us to improve the quality of our lives! Thank you! I have though a one question that is very important to me and to which I can’t seem to find the answer. I’ve read lots about pH of our bodies, for some reason it is very difficult to rise the pH of my body to the right number which is 7.3 – 7.5. I tried everything including using pH drops and pH stick and nothing seem to help. I’ve been eating very healthy, lots of salads, little dairy, almost no meat and 95% of food I buy is organic. The pH of my urine is usually ok but the pH of my saliva is way to low and sometimes the yellow strip does not change the colour at all! Would you have any suggestions, I often worry that my body is too acidic. Please help!

      I would start following my healing diet outlined here: https://draxe.com/nutrition/healing-diet/

      Also, here is another article that goes over the specifics of the body’s pH: https://draxe.com/health/ph-balance/

    Any thoughts about creating this with fresh rosemary? Just wondering as I have much more than I ever use!

    • Dr. Josh Axe on

      It would be hard to get the essence of rosemary out of the plant and into the shampoo. I believe it would still smell good but you may not get all the health benefits that you would using a highly concentrated essential oil.
