When a woman goes looking for a hair care product such as a shampoo, she has probably been already bombarded on all sides by ads that promise her the world. Product X claims to be made from all-natural ingredients and is the best. When she looks carefully at the ingredients, she sees that most of the ingredients used can be bought at the grocer’s and that in that respect the ads are true. Product Y also makes the same claim and further proclaims that it is the result of years of experiments in expensive laboratories. The only problem is that the price of both the shampoos is a thousand times more than the cost of the ingredients.
A Better Shampoo Costs More
Better shampoos are more expensive and this is not only a consequence of branding. They contain more ingredients that are specially tailored to attack specific hair problems such as oily hair, lifeless hair or extra dry hair. The ingredients that are used to solve these problems are not the result of years of investigation in expensive laboratories. They often consist of simple products that can be found in any supermarket and are refined to make the shampoo last longer on the shelves. It is not difficult to make your own shampoo since you would not require your shampoo to last long in storage. You can make it and use it immediately.
Make Your Own
There are many books and manuals that teach you how to make your own shampoo. All that you need to do is to acquire the ingredients and follow the instructions in the manual. This is not hard to do and the only equipment you need can be found in your own kitchen. Most of the better shampoos use only a small amount of natural ingredients. When you make your own shampoo, you can use a large amount of the same natural ingredients and since these are the main ingredients of the shampoo, you would obtain a better shampoo. Once you discover that your own home-made shampoo is superior to the store-bought product, you would think twice before venturing among the hair-care products section.
