Oh, shampoo and conditioner. They keep our hair clean and smelling great. While we all love being clean, well, most of us, shampoos and conditioners aren't totally innocent products. Most of them are filled with chemicals that aren't any good for our planet. Since they get washed down our drains, these are important things to think about! On top of that, the containers they come in are typically plastic. Sure, we can always recycle plastic, but isn't it better to reduce the production of plastic in the areas that we can? I think so.

The answer? Try making your own shampoo and conditioner! You'll save money and use more natural ingredients. Isn't it better to know exactly what you?re using on your body?

Here's a basic recipe for shampoo that can be altered to you're your hair better if you'd like.

You need:

1 empty bottle

3 cups of soap flakes (which you can get almost anywhere)
