    Do you need to keep refrigerated?

    This is what I make to wash my hair! Affirmation that I’m doing something right. :) Well, this is -almost- the same… I use the lavender castille soap, and add rosemary essential oil for super scalp and hair health. As a bonus, I find that the combination of lavender and rosemary smells heavenly!

    • Melissa says:

      How much Rosemary oil do you suggest using with the soap, and lavender oil? Would you split the amount of drops between the two oils? Thanks in advance!

    Is there a soap free option? Instead of using the Castille soap

    I was so excited to make this shampoo! BUT…I’ve got a question. We used Dr. Bronner’s Baby Mild Unscented Liquid Castile Soap and a can of GOYA Coconut Milk purchased at a local health food store. When these two were combined there was a HORRIBLE FISHY smell. My friend and I were sharing this recipe. In my HALF, I ended up adding 30 drops of a Purification Blend, 20 drops of Lavender, 10 drops of Grapefruit, and 5 drops of Cedarwood (high-quality expensive oils, btw) and it STILL has a fishy undertone. I’m not sure that I will be able to even use it. Neither the liquid soap or the coconut milk smelled like this until they were combined. QUESTION: Any idea what happened? Is this normal? I watched a YouTube video of someone making a similar recipe and their “coconut milk” (different brand) was VERY think and had to be removed from the can with a spatula whereas ours was a pretty thin liquid that poured out of the can. Any ideas?

    I would like to know where to get these oils

  6. Cd says:

    Is this good for a dry scalp of more for dry hair?

  7. R says:

    Dr Axe, what shampoo do you recommend for Dht hair loss shampoo?

    Thanks and love your youtube videos

  8. tanya says:

    Can you use coconut milk not in the can but in Milk container?

    • I have not tried it. The coconut milk in a can is only coconut milk while the one in the container has other ingredients added so the effect won’t be as good.
