MOO Coconut Shampoo

I've been asked a few times for a MOO shampoo, one that really works. One that not only cleans but leaves hair soft, shiny and manageable. Well this MOO shampoo does all that. Hannah has long hair, below her shoulders, while I keep mine short, and we are both really happy with the results.

I had to laugh when I asked the boys what they thought of it though - as far as they're concerned shampoo is shampoo - as long as it "doesn't make our hair fall out" they're happy!

You will need:
¼ cup coconut milk
1/3 cup of liquid castile soap
1 tablespoon of vitamin E, olive or almond oil
10 – 20 drops of your favourite pure essential oil

Step 1. Combine all ingredients in a shampoo bottle or jar and shake well to mix.

To use wet your hair thoroughly. Pour about 5ml (1 teaspoon) of the shampoo into your hand and massage through your hair. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. You can use a cider vinegar rinse to condition of you wish to. Dry and style as you normally would.

This mixture will last up to one month; just remember to shake it well before you use it.

Notes: I use Dr. Bronner's castile soap. It's available at health food shops and some chemists.

  1. how do you use cider vinegar in a rinse wash, what ratio?

  2. Hi Kris, I use 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a cup of warm water to rinse and condition my hair. After I've rinsed the shampoo out (yes, I still use shampoo), I just pour half the cider/water mix over my hair, gently massage it in, then pour the rest over, massage again and rinse. Sounds like a procedure but it doesn't take any longer than using regular conditioner. Once my hair is dry you'd never know it was rinsed with vinegar, no odour at all.
