How To Make Your Own Shampoo & Conditioner

How To Make Your Own Shampoo & Conditioner

Did you know that most store bought shampoos and conditioners are full of synthetic chemicals? They can be harsh on your hair, contain toxins, and can potentially have long lasting effects on your health.

When you use clean shampoo ingredients and control the formula of your haircare products, you can make them healthier and more effective.

Makesy makes it possible to make your own shampoo and conditioner with our premade bases. Add your favorite actives and fragrances, and you've created your own clean shampoo and conditioner!

When you customize your formulas with our actives, you can target specific hair types too so you don't have to sacrifice anything when using the best natural ingredients.

Voila! Great hair days ahead!
