10 Secret Shampoo Hacks for Natural Hair You Won’t Believe Actually Works!

As people with natural hair know, maintaining those luscious locks can be a struggle. But there are some secret shampoo hacks that can help you achieve the hair of your dreams. These 10 tips will blow your mind and leave you wondering why you hadn’t heard of them before!


ACV Rinse: Apple cider vinegar (ACV) rinse is a miracle for natural hair. Mix equal parts of ACV and water in a bottle and apply it all over your hair after shampooing. Rinse it out with cold water after a few minutes. This rinse strengthens your hair, balances the pH level, and adds shine.

Tea Tree Oil: Tea tree oil has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties that help to combat dandruff and various scalp infections. Add a few drops of tea tree oil to your shampoo and massage it into your scalp for some minutes before rinsing thoroughly.

Coffee Rinse: Want to add some depth and shine to your hair while also getting rid of product build-up? Brew a cup of coffee and rinse your hair with it after shampooing. Leave it on for a few minutes and rinse thoroughly.


Scalp Massage: Massaging your scalp during shampooing can help stimulate hair growth and also help to prevent hair loss. Use your fingertips to massage your scalp in circular motions.

Oatmeal Shampoo: Struggling with dry, itchy scalp? Make your own oatmeal shampoo to help alleviate the problem. Combine oatmeal, baking soda, and water to form a paste. Apply the paste to your scalp and massage gently, then rinse with warm water.

Aloe Vera: Aloe Vera is known for its moisturizing properties. Add some aloe vera gel to your shampoo or mix it with water and use it as a rinse after shampooing. It will leave your hair soft, shiny and moisturized.

Honey Shampoo: Honey is a natural humectant that draws moisture from the air and locks it in the hair. Mix equal parts of honey and your regular shampoo and apply it to your hair as usual. Rinse it off with lukewarm water for a lustrous look.

Baking Soda Scrub: If you want to get rid of dirt, debris, and product build-up from your scalp, try a baking soda scrub. Mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with water to form a paste. Apply it on to your scalp and hair and massage gently for a few minutes before rinsing it away.

Clarifying Shampoo: Use a clarifying shampoo once a month to get rid of styling product residue, mineral buildup, and hard water deposit, which can weigh your hair down. Clarifying shampoo deep cleanses your scalp and leaves your hair feeling refreshed.

Rose Water Rinse: Rosewater is a natural conditioner that adds shine, enhances color and smells great! Mix equal parts of rose water and water in a spray bottle and apply it to your hair after shampooing. Leave it on for a few minutes and rinse thoroughly.

We hope these 10 secret shampoo hacks will make your natural hair journey a stress-free one.

Try them out and see the difference they make in your hair health and appearance. Remember, healthy hair is beautiful hair!
