Hair rinse recipe

Oily hair shampoo


  • 2 tablespoons of dried peppermint
  • 2 tablespoons of dried spearmint
  • 1 tablespoon of dried sage
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2/3 cup of baby shampoo


Combine all the herbs and water and bring them to a boil in a saucepan.
Let them steep for 20 to 25 minutes and then strain them.
Mix the remaining water with baby shampoo.

Spearmint and peppermint have a cleansing property but they are also a great way to invigorate the scalp and increase the overall circulation in the area.

Baby shampoo is mild and neutral enough to cleanse the hair and the skin and not irritate it or make it greasy.

Glycerin oily hair conditioner


  • 1/4 cup of glycerin
  • 1/3 cup of hot water
  • 2 tablespoons of liquid lecithin
  • 1/4 of sage
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of dried buttermilk powder


Combine hot water and sage and let it rest for 10 minutes.
Strain the liquid and remove sage.
Combine all ingredients and mix well.
Apply on the freshly shampooed hair and leave on for a few minutes.
Rinse well with warm water.

This recipe does two things:

It conditions the hair with honey which is known as an antibacterial and cleansing agent. It also introduces glycerin which is used as an oil substitute as it is not as greasy as oils are but still has a strong nourishing property.

Finally, here's a simple recipe from our reader Tammy:
