This recipe is for a moisturizing and conditioning shampoo that will be great for dry hair that comes with a dry and itchy scalp. If you have oily hair then I have several recipes for oily hair in my DIY Shampoo Recipes Book. That said, if your hair is slightly greasy or has lots of product build-up this is the best option in this DIY shampoo series because it does not contain any oil.
This recipe has peppermint essential oil as the only essential oil to really juice up that soothing feeling.
