Soap Nut Benefits For Hair
Soap nuts are a naturally mild, biodegradable alternative to commercial shampoo that’s easy on your hair and scalp. They are safe for those with psoriasis and can help promote healthy hair growth that’s thick, shiny and full of life.
The nut itself is not soap, but the husks contain saponins which give it the ability to lather up like a soap. This natural soap has been used for centuries as a cleaning agent and is also great for skin and hair.
Make a Soap Nut Shampoo
A homemade soap nut shampoo is a great way to get rid of buildup and dirt on your hair without using any harsh chemicals or sulfates. You can use it as is, or you can add some essential oils to it for a nice scent.
Save your soap nut liquid
To save some of your soap nut liquid, place it in an ice cube tray and put it in the fridge. The next time you want to use it, just thaw the ice cubes and pour into your soap dispenser.
Make a Soap Concentrate
To make a concentrate to clean your body or hair, just mix together 5-6 soap nuts, 2 cups of water and a few drops of essential oil. Simmer for 30 minutes or so before transferring to a bottle.
The benefits of soap nuts for your hair are endless. They are safe, natural and cost-effective. They also help to prevent dandruff and promote the growth of strong, healthy hair.
