Abstract: The aim of the article is to formulate a pure herbal shampoo and to evaluate its physicochemical properties. The shampoo is enriched with herbal extracts without any synthetic additives.The herbal extracts used in formulation are Sapindus mukorossi (reetha), Glycyrrhiza glabra (liquorice), Azadirachta indica (neem), Nardostachys jatamansi (jatamansi), Ocimum tenuiflorum (tulsi), Lavendula angustifolia (lavender oil), Musa acuminate (banana root). Small amount of marigold was added as a preservative and citric acid as pH adjuster. The herbal extracts used in formulation are Sapindus mukorossi (reetha), Glycyrrhiza glabra (liquorice), Azadirachta indica (neem), Nardostachys jatamansi (jatamansi), Ocimum tenuiflorum (tulsi), Lavendula angustifolia (lavender oil), Musa acuminate (banana root). Small amount of marigold was added as a preservative and citric acid as pH adjuster. Herbal shampoo was prepared by simple mixing process. The herbal shampoo was tested for physicochemical properties. Some of methods are visual inspection, pH determination, solubility check, cleansing action, determination of percentage solid content etc. The formulated shampoo was clean and qualitative. It showed good cleansing and detergency, low surface tension, good foam stability and antidandruff property. The pH of herbal shampoo was found to be around 6.2 which is good for scalp.
