Solid Shampoo for Victoria : Smoothing and Nourishing

22 Sep

Hello Natural Friends!

Another Solid shampoo recipe!! I made this one for my friend Victoria. She has long dark beautiful hair that she dyes. This shampoo contains olive oil which is a great conditioner so no need for more.

What is a Solid Shampoo or Shampoo Bar?

A Solid Shampoo is exactly like your usual organic shampoo except it’s solid (like a soap) and it’s more practical and more economic. Practical because it’s easy to carry it with you and travel with it. It’s small and doesn’t leak 😉 More economic because it takes a long long time to finish one.

Recipe for a Solid Shampoo for dry hair, damaged hair and dyed hair :

78% Surfactant SCS: Sodium coco-sulfate

4% Extra Virgin Olive oil

4% Shea Butter*

4% Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

8% Chamomile infusion

2% Peony Powder

12 drops Ylang Ylang Essential Oil*

*Organic ingredients

Why these ingredients?

– Olive oil – Olea europaea : moisture, give strength & shine to your scalp and hair. It protects your color and make it shine longer. It acts like a conditioner.

– Shea Butter – Butyrospermum parkii: Restores shine and beauty to your hair. Deeply nourishes the hair fiber. Extends and protects your hair color.

Peony PowderPaeonia officinalis: anti-inflammatory, soothing, great for damaged, itchy scalp and dandruff. I picked up this ingredient to appease the scalp because of the products used to dye the hair.

Chamomile Flowers – Chamomilla matricaria: Brightens your blond highlights. It also makes your hair soft and smoothens your scalp.

– Ylang Ylang Essential Oil – Cananga odorata totum: Promotes growth of healthy and lusty hair and may perhaps also be beneficial for people enduring split ends. Soothes and sorts out over-dry as well as overly-oily scalp by balancing the secretion of sebum. Suitable for all types of hair.

How to make it?

Sterilize all your utensils in boiling water.

  1.  Make an herbal tea with the water and chamomile flowers and let it marinate while cooling down. (don’t boil the water, just warm it up around 60/70degrees)
  2. Pour the SCS in a bowl
  3. Add the oils and butter. And peony powder.
  4. Strain the chamomile herbal tea and pour the chamomille water in the same bowl.
  5. Now, warm up slowly your bowl of ingredients in a bain-marie to not affect the oils. Stir.
  6. When all these ingredients are mixed together in a paste. Take the bowl off the heat.
  7. Keep stirring and add the Essential Oils.
  8. Pour it in a mold.
  9. Put it in the fridge to dry for 24hours.
  10. Patience….
  11. When dry, take it off the mold and store it in a little container or wrapping film.

You made a solid shampoo!!!

How to use your homemade natural Shampoo Bar?

Under the shower, wet your hair as usual. Take your Shampoo Bar and rub it a few times on your head. Then massage your hair like usual. You’ll see it foams a lot and should smell delicious. Rinse like usual and don’t forget a last rinse with vinegar.


You have a choice of different oils and butters, just have fun!

I alwasy make more herbal tea so either drink it or use it for your face or keep it to rinse your hair.

Storage the Solid Shampoo in a dry place to not waste it (or don’t leave it soaking in a pond of water in your bathroom).

Other Essential Oils are great for your hair. Be careful and use them with caution. Here is a list with hair properties.

I encourage you to start making your own Natural&Organic products. It’s a lot of fun, better for your health and the envirronment, and cheaper!!
