The soapberry has been used for thousands of years to cleanse and nourish hair and skin in Ayurvedic medicine. Ayurveda is the primary form of healing and framework for wellness in India. It is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit.
Ancient ayurvedic shampoo recipes and hair treatments always involve the soapberry, why?
Gentle on hair: Soapberries are hypoallergenic, this means they are safe on delicate scalps and won’t strip your hair of its natural oils.
Prevent hair loss: Soapberries have been used in Ayurvedic medicine to prevent and combat hair loss.
Antibacterial: This means they’re great at helping treat skin and scalp infections like dandruff, eczema, and psoriasis.
With vitamins A, D, E, and K, soapberries add shine to your hair.
100% natural: Chemicals used in ordinary shampoos contain harmful chemicals that are absorbed into your bloodstream.
Now for the good stuff, how to make your own soapberry shampoo. Here’s how to make your own soapberry liquid extract:
All you have to do is use the soapberry liquid extract. Place the extract into a reusable squeeze bottle. You can add in about 5 drops of your favorite essential oil for some added scent if you’d like.
To use, massage the liquid extract into your hair starting at the roots. Leave in for about 5 minutes and then rinse well for light, shiny hair!
You can also use your soapberry liquid extract as a dandruff treatment. Simply mix in 1 part soapberry extract with 3 parts coconut oil. Rub it into the scalp, and let it sit for 15 minutes. Once the time’s up, rinse it off with your homemade soapberry shampoo.
