Hi, beauties! As you well know, I love DIY because it allows me to create recipes with different ingredients. Among my favorite DIY products, for sure there is the solid shampoo. In this post, I had fun creating a DIY shampoo bar with Ayurvedic powders. Practicing Yoga and Meditation to balance body and mind, I wanted to bring these concepts into my DIY recipes as well. Hence the use of Ayurvedic powders such as Shikakai and Hibiscus.

DIY shampoo bar with Ayurvedic Powders: how to use them for hair
Shikakai powder is a herb obtained from the bark of a shrub. I have been using this powder in my hair recipes for a few months now, as shampoo and masks, with excellent results. Shikakai powder has many benefits (read my previous post here) but what I have found the most, from my personal experience, is its strong untangling power! Having curly and frizzy hair, I often have knots in my hair so untangling shampoo is vital for me. With Shikakai, I’m sure I’ll get the right result.
Hibiscus powder is a new ingredient I wanted to test because its properties are mainly focused on strength and shine hair. Given its color, it is ideal for accentuating the shine of mahogany hair. Out of curiosity, I bought it and tested it in this shampoo.
