Aside from being a healthful snack and a great way to keep your intestinal tract in tip-top shape, yogurt is an inexpensive, natural way to repair and replenish dry, lifeless hair, especially during the cold winter months. Don’t waste money on expensive store-bought moisturizing shampoos; instead, create a simple product from yogurt and other safe, natural ingredients.

Step 1

Bring 1 quart water to a hard boil over high heat. Drop 8 tablespoons castile soap into a medium-sized mixing bowl; castile is an olive oil-based soap available at craft stores. Carefully pour the boiling water over the castile soap. Stir the water until the soap is completely melted. Set the bowl aside.

Step 2

Create a mixture of 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon honey and 1 cup plain yogurt in a separate bowl. Whip the mixture until creamy with a hand mixer or blender on a medium setting.

Step 3

Combine the castile soap and yogurt mixtures and stir well. Pour mixture into an empty shampoo bottle or jar with tight-fitting lid. If the castile soap is warm, set the shampoo aside until it’s completely cooled.

Step 4

Dampen your hair with lukewarm water and work the shampoo into your hair and scalp. Rinse the product thoroughly and follow-up with your favorite moisturizing conditioner. Refrigerate the remaining product.
