The study was aimed at formulating and evaluating a complete herbal shampoo containing only traditionally used plant materials. The shampoo contained extracts of Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, Azadirachta indica, Trigonella foenumgraecum, Phyllanthus emblica, Sapindus mukorossi, Acacia concinna and fresh juice of Aloe vera. The physicochemical parameters such as colour, clarity, pH, skin irritation, percentage of solid contents, dirt dispersion, foaming ability and foam stability, wetting time and conditioning performance were studied using recommended procedures. The shampoo revealed ideal characteristics of a shampoo with excellent conditioning performance. The shampoo was devoid of any harmful chemicals and can be used as an alternative to its synthetic counterpart. Keywords: Shampoo, Herbal, Formulation, Evaluation, Physicochemical parameters
