Activated Charcoal – Do you know all of the amazing uses? – DIY and Beyond

Using activated charcoal on your hair can not only be healing it can also help keep hair & scalp, be healthy & look & feel great. I will share 3 recipes the first is totally DIY. You can use an empty shampoo bottle or a squirt bottle for these recipes.

These recipes can be used as part of your NoPoo routine or natural hair care routine.

You can add 1/4 tsp to 2 tsp of Bentonite clay powder to any of these recipes (Terramin Brand is my favorite for health & DIY) .

You can follow with conditioner of choice, or no poo conditioner like apple cider vinegar in water, or lemon juice in water or whatever you normally use. Or you can even do a DIY pre conditioner before washing like this one.

You might need to use several cups of warm baking soda water to wash out the rest of the charcoal after rinsing your hair. To make baking soda water add 1 tsp to one cup warm water, stir, work into hair & then rinse out.

We use activated charcoal shampoo on all hair types, color & lengths, it leaves hair soft & manageable.

Recipe one:

This recipes is best made & used right away. To your shampoo bottle add 1 tsp of baking soda, 1 tsp of Borax, 1/2 tsp activated charcoal powder, add about 1 to 2 cups hot/warm water shake & use on wet or dry hair just as you would shampoo. Work into scalp & allow to sit several minutes & rinse with warm water.

Recipe two:skin

To your shampoo bottle add enough natural shampoo or liquid soap (like Saavy Shampoo, Dish Liquid or Wonder Wash) the amount depends on you & what you want to add, I prefer 2 add several TBS of natural shampoo & 1 tsp activated charcoal powder & fill the rest of the way with water, but if you prefer add more shampoo or simply add 1 tsp of activated charcoal powder to your bottle of natural shampoo, shake well & use as normal.

Recipe Three:

Mix baking soda water (1 tsp baking soda per 1 cup warm water) & add 1/4 tsp of activated charcoal & stir into the cup of water, apply to wet or dry hair, work in then rinse.

  4. For me without a doubt, using no shampoo, only no poo & using borax mostly as the shampoo & including peroxide, also tea tree oil but remember less is more with tea tree oil. Doing a colloidal silver leave in rinse would also be amazing. You can easily research all of these on my blog & I do recommend researching them yourself & deciding.
