Introduction
This activity looks at the basics of hair-care and encourages the Guides to think about the products they use.

Instructions
Try making and using some of the homemade shampoo recipes below (ingredients available from most chemists) and while you’re working on these discuss the benefits of regular trimming, brushing, etc., and the damage caused by colouring, sun, heat (e.g. hairdryer and appliances), central heating, swimming (in pools or the sea), and so on. You could ask the girls to research these topics more beforehand or afterwards.
Lavender Shampoo:
¾ cup distilled water, ½ tsp Xantham gum, ½ tsp Lemon Juice, ¼ cup Coco Betaine, 3 tbsp polyglucose, 25 drops Lavender essence.
Pre-wash Honey Treatment:
2 tbsp olive oil, 2tsp honey, 5 drops Rosemary or Lavender or Geranium Oil.
Chamomile Shampoo:
4 bags chamomile tea, 4 tbsp pure soap flakes, 1½ tbsp glycerine, 2 cups hot water. (Obviously allow to cool after mixing).
Dandruff Treatment:
2 tsp dried rosemary, 2 tsp dried thyme, ⅔ cup cider vinegar, ⅔ cup boiling water. (Obviously allow to cool after mixing).
After using these recipes compare the results with commercial shampoos.
