This DIY sea salt shampoo is an exact dupe/replica of Lush’s Big Sea Salt Shampoo and I am absolutely in love! But at almost $30 a jar, I seriously cannot justify paying that much for something I know I can make! What’s great about this DIY sea salt shampoo is that it works just as well as Lush’s sea salt shampoo or any other salt shampoo and it will seriously only cost you a couple of dollars! And don’t worry, the ingredients are super easy to get!
The reason why sea salt shampoos are so good is because they’re amazing cleansers which get rid of all the gunk. So if you’re one of those that pile on the products, a sea salt shampoo will definitely get rid of that. On top of that, sea salt shampoos give GREAT volume so if you’re suffering from thin hair this will really help! A wise word: try not to use this shampoo too much because it DOES contain salt which we all know can dry out hair! So keep it chill, and use it only 1-2 times a week. Oh and if you’ve already purchased Lush’s Big Sea Salt Shampoo, make sure to save the container so you can reuse it! This stuff will seriously last you a long time!
Homemade Sea Salt Shampoo
- 14 tbsp. coarse sea salt
- 1 cup organic unscented castille soap (I used this one)
- 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 10-15 drops of essential oils
It’s important that you choose a good oil – this will be your base oil. You can choose anything from coconut oil, to avocado oil, hazelnut, olive oil, etc. Just make sure to pick out a super rich, moisturizing oil as salt can be drying!
- Combine all ingredients in a glass jar and mix well.
- Scoop out in a clean jar or a recycle Lush pot and put it to good use!
- Use it as you would any other shampoo, just make sure you don’t use it more than 1-2 times a week!
