The hibiscus has been extolled for various uses, including as dandruff treatment, food coloring and herbal teas. To make a simple shampoo that will leave your hair extremely soft, you can use both hibiscus leaves and flowers.

Things You'll Need

  • 8 to 10 hibiscus leaves
  • 1 or 2 hibiscus flowers
  • Water
  • Strainer
  • Flour
  • Essential oil (optional)

Put the leaves, flowers and 1 cup of water in a bowl.

Mash the leaves and flowers.

Add about a teaspoon of flour and continue to mix. If the consistency is fairly thick, add a little more water. It should be fairly runny and sticky.

Put the mixture through the strainer.

Add a drop or two of your favorite essential oil, if you like.

Shampoo with the mixture and rinse thoroughly. Let your hair air dry.

  • This mixture does not keep well so make it right before use.
