Best Natural Shampoo (great results) chemical/toxin-free healthy hair for life

Recommended Posts

So I was looking for a shampoo which wasn't loaded with any toxic chemicals, carcinogens, endocrine disruptors etc and there was nothing on the market, even those labelled as 'chemical-free' and 'organic' failed miserably...

Then I found the solution....I have been using this and it works wonders. I would strongly recommend everyone that uses commercial shampoos to stop since not only are you damaging your hair, you are also absorbing the above chemicals through the scalp into your tissues and bloodstream..leading to systemic effects.

No amount of poison is good.  Try to eliminate it, since even low level chronic exposure is not good and the effects accumulate over time.

What are your thoughts on pure castile soap like Dr Bronners?

Avoid. Harsh on hair and contains citric acid-->GM corn, cancer causing, contaminated with mercury, msg.

Tocopherol-->GM soy, cancer causing.

You know back then they used yogurt (dhey) for their hair.

Also mentioned in Puratan Rehatnamai.

I've tried it but it doesn't remove oil from hair and also makes hair smell afterwards. Maybe there is another way I'm not sure. Find out. I've also tried putting ghee in hair but again it makes it smell bad.

1kg lemon or lime, cut each one into 4 pieces, put into pateela. 

0.5kg soapnuts(reetha), remove seeds, put shells into pateela.

5L water, add to pateela, boil until water reduces to half the quantity. 

Once cool, rub the soapnuts and lemon properly, strain it in a cloth.

Use the liquid as a shampoo. E.g. semi-fill a large bottle, shake it up and use. 

This method produces 2.5L of liquid which is enough for 5 people. Adjust the quantities according to how much final liquid you want, keeping the ratio of lemon:soapnut:water the same. E.g. For 1 person start with this: 400g lime (approx 6 limes), 200g soapnuts (approx 40 soapnut shells), 2L water.

If there is shampoo leftover, put it in the fridge to use the following week.

As far as I know, bleach is used in the medical industry as it's the only thing that kills tuberculosis, and other viruses with particularly dense protein shells. 

Any natural alternatives in the disinfectant realm that would do the same?

Edit: well couldn't wait so I googled it. Apparently vinegar and peroxide are more effective and TB is a bacteria not a virus. 

Still interested in feedback.

Thank you both for turning my awareness to the products I've been using. I've been quite lazy and ignorant about my choices.

Don't worry we've all been unaware.

Short answer: bleach is really bad especially inhaling the fumes. The safest thing to use is soapnut liquid in a spray bottle. It kills bacteria. I know that white vinegar is popular but I have concerns with it. Don't use peroxide.

lemon juice straight has disinfecting effect and white vinegar but as they are acidic may not be suitable on stone surfaces , I use  a spray made with distilled water 20 drops peppermint oil and a couple of drops of neutral nontoxic ecofriendly soap can use the solution for shampoo above . Main thing is to leave the spray on the surface to act for a couple of minutes then wipe with clean damp cloth . Non toxic and cheap

other oils that have good anti bac properties

lemon

lavender

treetree

rosemary

euclyptus  - can use in low temp clothes wash of bedlinens to remove dustmites and allergens

    • Monatosingh replied. The rope is strategic in many ways. Out in the wild and need to make weapons, you may need rope. Need to make a little makeshift roof, you need rope. Need to tie anything together for the purpose of surviving, you will always need rope.   Dori also saves the issue of gatra breaking, etc
    • Guru Nanak Dev Ji's Parkash is disputed between 3 Dates Friday, Katak Sudi 15 Pooranmashi, 1526 Bikrami (Lunar) Saturday, Vaisakh Sudi 3, 1526 Bikrami (Lunar) (Not Pooranmashi) Monday, 1 Vaisakh, 1526 Bikrami (Solar Date) (Pooranmashi) There is debate on this issue, I recommend reading the document mentioned in the OP. Also PLS, Benti for everyone, when referring to Gurpuabs, pls use Bikrami or Mool Nanakshahi (Which are basically Bikrami dates) dates, don't use English dates as they are not accurate as the original. We need more people to start using Desi Months and days, Barah Maha Parro!
    • Serious question though, how would one use a Dori Kirpan practically? Like how would it be used? I think thats why some people say its just for show because maybe you can't use it well? I wouldn't know.
    • Sometimes we use the phrase "Just do it" in the Dojo. Other times we say "Shut up and train".  Heh. 
    • Exactly. Oh, so it's not a made-up saakhi? Even if it were, it would be good. It sounds vaguely like the saakhi of Bhai Banno. I agree that it is unreasonable to demand discounts of shopkeepers because "it's for a religious purpose". They can't verify that. You're trading on your long beard to make the other guy think you're "religious". You're just setting it up for unscrupulous people with beards to come by and abuse it, which then gets found out, and then people lose faith in Sikhs and Sikhi. On the other hand, it would be OK for a gurdwara to put out the call for construction materials, legal services, accounting services, medical services (free medical camps). Then people can verify it's for a religious purpose because they're giving directly to the gurdwara. And then sawmill owners can drop off wood at the gurdwara, marble showroom owners can drop off marble, etc. Or people in fields not in demand can buy the stuff (possibly at cost) and have it delivered to the gurdwara.
