MrandMissConverted: Many products that wash contain oils. The key here is the quantity of oil used and your hair type. If your hair is dry, you can use a little (NOT a lot). Otherwise, you could skip the oil completely. Hope that clarifies your confusion.
Katyallr1: Hello I do not understand how oil and aloe can wash your hair?
MrandMissConverted: Hello. Philippines! Wonderful to have you from your corner of the world!
You may use rosemary oil (ie if you are NOT pregnant). Rosemary is good for promoting hair growth. However, if you run out or can not find it in your area, proceed without oil.
I make the shampoo with NO oil at all. The shampoo works fine either way (with or without oil).
Don't be a stranger, let's know what you did and how it worked out.
sweetyzel C.: I'm from the Philippines hard to find jojoba oil in my place..is there any substitute for jojoba oil?can i use olive oil? or coconut oil?:)
MrandMissConverted: Consider refrigerating it. Also see the other parts to this series for information about natural preservation.
Sharon Lewis: If you don't use all the mixture can it be stored for a while like a few weeks? If so do I refrigerate it or leave it out? I leave very near the equator.
MrandMissConverted: The oil is optional. It is used mostly by people with very dry hair. Otherwise, there is no need to use it at all. The amount to be used is a matter of individual experimentation.
MrandMissConverted: If you can buy an entire leaf, that will work fine.
Nikki Stowers: How much Jojoba oil do you add?
MzzJay1Diva: Can I use the whole leaf aloe vera juice from the vitamin shoppe?
MrandMissConverted: Never tried hemp oil. You will need to experiment, preferably by starting with very small volumes first. Having said that, you really do not need oil at all. I mostly skip the oil and get great results.
Nathalie de wit: Can you make it with hemp oil? instead of jojoba?
How many drops you use for 1 serving?
Nathalie de wit: How much ml aloe vera and jojoba do you use?
Temickab b: I have essential oils and a carrier oil which is grape seed oil. IS that ok to use?
GeorgiaCarolina298: Thanks for an instruction. I will use a natural aloe shampoo without the oil, because my hair is too fine. First, I have to use those purchased shampoos which I have saved.
Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Converted.
MrandMissConverted: Hi Empress Nat Locs. This will definitely work fine with you. Please see the 2nd and 3rd parts of this video to see other options that we did not remember to include in this first video. Let's know how it worked out. Take care!
ps Nice name!
EmpressNatiLocs: Sounds great and easy to boot. I have locs so I'm definitely going to try this!
MrandMissConverted: Yes. However, include oil only if your hair is very dry. Part 3 speaks about this. Also, if you want to preserve the shampoo, use one of the all natural preservation methods mentioned in part 2.
The links for parts 2 and 3 are in this video's description section.
Kailey Nickel: So water, Aloe, and Jojoba are all I need to do this?
MrandMissConverted: yes, this shampoo is very good for dry hair and scalp.
rosyivory: As I see all characteristics you mentioned of each ingredient benefits oily hair/ scalp what about dry hair/ scalp is this shampoo good for it too?
GreatIndia TV: do you have any more home-made recipes for hair deep conditioning?
MrandMissConverted: It is normal for this natural shampoo to look transparent after the foam from the blending action has settled. Additionally, this shampoo will not have the same thick and creamy lather as w commercial shampoos (that use harsh chemicals like SLS for the lathering effect. This shampoo will look watery-ish. However, it should feel a little slimey. That's OK. It will work. If you want the shampoo to be thicker, use less water.
Tell us how it all works out.
beadydani: Create tutorial, so easy I will defo be making this.
Kelly Koay: umm, I made this shampoo three times, and they all seemed to be transparent and water-ish instead of a white shampoo like mixture, could you tell me what went wrong??
ridahina: i have minor fungal infection due to that my scalp is secreting more sebums will this work on me can anyone suggest me how long i should use it.
Gorav Khanna: Has anybody tried Hair 790 Formula? My friend tried the formula on his head and soon after begun getting hair growth within a few weeks! I don't know the site just simply google the name.
That depends on whether you use any natural preservatives (discussed in part 2 of this video along with different preservation options).
Don't be a stranger. Let us know how it worked out. Take care.
Cynthia Alva: How long does this shampoo last in the fridge?
MrandMissConverted: As with other shampoos, you can mix this with other shampoos. However, be mindful of the fact that others have found that castile soap is extremely alkaline, even when diluted quite a bit. Aloe vera shampoo will fall within the ideal 4.5 to 5.5 pH level (see part 3,, ie one of the Q&A follow up videos). Adding other substances (including natural preservatives (see part 2) can already slightly alter the pH level).
Let us know your decision, experiences and results.
Be in touch!
Roxanne P.: Can I also add in castile soap?
MrandMissConverted: Yes, you can use other oils that you think can help you. However, before using oils, consider the effect of oil on hair that is not dry. See part 3 to this series of videos for a short discussion on that. Let us know the oil that you used and its effect. ... This is a live laboratory!
Amber Graham: Can you use other EO such as peppermint oil or other carrier oils?
MrandMissConverted: Yes. Aloe vera barbadensis is naturally bitter.
Ramesh Mohata: hi, can i use bitter aloevera.
Ramesh Mohata: hi, can i use bitter aloevera
MrandMissConverted: Yes it will. However, the lather will certainly NOT be as thick as that of the commercial shampoos. In fact, it has more of a slippery feel. The 3rd part of this video discusses this (and other FAQs). The links of the subsequent parts to this video are in the description of this video.
honeydiamond26: will this shampoo produce any kind of lather?
lesigh msfierce: Hello, we grow a lot of aloe vera plants at our house. The aloe meat and the sticky substance surrounding it is not bitter at all, though. I've read that aloe is supposed to taste bitter, and my mother say that when shel was a child the aloe vera that she had was bitter. So, I'm just concerned that since my aloe does not taste bitter it's beneficial properties (namely hair growth) may be compromised. Any thoughts?
It is excellent for natural black hair. See also part 2 re preserving this shampoo. The link is also in the description of this video.
Sahaar Turner: this is really good for natural hair as well.
MrandMissConverted: Wow, I never thought about using a juice extractor before. Interesting idea! I suppose it could work but really do not know for sure. Please let us know. Before you proceed, I would still recommend peeling it, even if you do not want to strain it. Re the oil, do not worry to use the oil, especially if your hair is not extremely dry. Otherwise, it's not a science, try 1 or 2 drops.
Silvermistlol: Can I use a juice extractor to put the hole leaf of aloe? in that way it wont be necessary to strain it. And how many drops of jojoba oil its needed?
Sorry that this happened to you. You did not do anything wrong. It is necessary to strain the shampoo after you blend it. I forgot to mention that in this video and will be addressing that matter soon.
The white stuff is the fibrous part of the 'gel' inside the leaf.
Jackie Maestas: i tried this and when i washed my hair, there was a lot of white stuff that stuck to my hair.What did i do wrong?
MrandMissConverted: This is extremely rare. I should also add that, subsequent to doing this video, I realize that the workaround is rinsing off the brown liquid before using it. I now leave the aloe vera gel in my hair for extended periods of time without a problem.
People usually test something new by putting a little on one small spot on your body.
Let's know how you manage!
alexis strickling: i watched 2 minutes to find out i can get an alergic reactoin from this
MrandMissConverted: MOST DEFINITELY! I got this idea from the rastafarians (who lock their hair). My addition was blending the gel versus their rubbing the gel into the hair.
BTW, In addition to focusing on washing your hair, also concentrate on CONDITIONING your hair with aloe. Really allow it to penetrate your hairstyle. Also, do not be afraid to only lightly rinse out the final 'wash' (so that some remains).
I'd heard that it might leave a reddish hue. Let's know if this is true for you. Don't be a stranger.
Carl Jackson: Hello! Thanks for this useful video. By the way, I hear a lot of people keep on talking about Zunhairex Secrets (do a search on google), but I'm not sure if it's good. Have you ever tried home remedy called Zunhairex Secrets? I've heard several great things about it and my friend completely cure his hair loss and regrow it safely with this remedy.
MrandMissConverted: Yes you can. However, there really is probably no need because the aloe vera is a conditioner. You may use a less foamy, ie more watery mix of the aloe vera as a leave-in conditioner or aloe juice.
