Natural Homemade Shampoo Bar
Let’s be honest, mixing masks and conditioners with natural ingredients yourself is a lot of fun. That’s why we’d like to finish the post with a moisturizing shampoo bar recipe.
What you will need:
- ⅔ cup of coconut oil
- ⅔ cup of olive oil
- ⅔ cup of any other oil (almond, avocado, castor etc.)
- 2 tablespoons of essential oils
- ¼ of sodium hydroxide
- ¾ cup of cool distilled water
- a pair of gloves
- safety glasses
- a heat proof container
- a stick blender
- Put on the glasses and gloves and mix all the oils. Also, it’s better to cover the area you work on with newspaper.
- Measure the water and sodium hydroxide to make sure you’re working with the right amount.
- Slowly pour sodium hydroxide into the water, stirring it carefully until the mixture turns clear.
- Once the mixture gets 125°F, pour it into the oils and stir it for five minutes.
- After five minutes, take a stick blender and blend it all until the mix is as thick as pudding.
- When you achieve the right consistency, add a tablespoon of another oil, stirring it thoroughly.
- Pour the mix into molds and cover them with plastic wraps for 24 hours. Then, turn them out on a baking rack and leave the soap to cure in a dark place for 4 weeks.
After just one month, you will get your own, handmade shampoo that will be no worse than lush shampoo bar products you’ve seen so far!
