· one tablespoon of raw honey
· three tablespoons of filtered water
· a little bit of an essential oil of your choice.
Begin by adding the honey to the water and then mix them well. Then, on your wet hair and scalp, apply the mixture and add the essential oil, too. Massage well and concentrate more on the scalp. Once you are done, rinse your hair off with cold or lukewarm water.
Honey is considered to be great for the hair, the skin and the overall health. While the transition may be a little weird in the beginning, from your regular shampoo to honey shampoo, you will notice that the difference is positive and pretty clear, too.

one large lemon
a medium sized cucumber
essential oil of your choice
Peel both the lemon and the cucumber, and then cut them into small pieces. Add the essential oils to them and make a mixture. If you want to make a paste you can, provided the consistency is even, like your regular shampoo. Apply it on the scalp and rinse well after a few minutes. It will help you get rid of the scalp dirt, stickiness and greasiness. It also promises to promote healthy hair growth, and remove dandruff.
You can use it as often as you would use your regular shampoo.
