Solid Shampoo Yolanda

10 Oct


Hello conscious friends!

Another solid shampoo recipe! This one I made it for my friend Yolanda.  It’s suited for everyone even if your scalp is not happy (irritated, swollen, dry, eczema, etc.)

What is a Solid Shampoo or Shampoo Bar?

A Solid Shampoo is exactly almost 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 and if you think about it (and compare costs), it’s cheaper.

Recipe for Solid Shampoo « Yolanda »:

77% Surfactant SCS: Sodium coco-sulfate

10% Extra Virgin Olive Oil

10% Chamomile* Infusion

2% Panthenol

1% Rosmary ct Cineole 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.

Chamomile Flowers* – Chamomilla matricaria L.: Very soothing and smoothing. Brightens your blond highlights. Great for everyone. Great for irritated, dry, dehydrated, swollen skin.

Pro Vitamin B5 – Panthenol: Moisturizes, thickens, repairs and boosts your hair. Fortifies and strengthens your hair. Beautifying hair: the hair shaft, making them stronger, shinier and easier to style without weighing it down or grease. Soothes irritation and itching of the scalp.

Rosemary ct Cineole Essential Oil* – Rosmarinus Officinalis ct Cineole: Revives and energizes your scalp and hair. Great for dandruff and skin flakes as well.

How to make it?

  1. Sterilize all utensils (boiling water or 90° alcool).
  2. Make a strong 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)
  3. Pour the SCS in a bowl
  4. Add the oils and butter: Olive oil+Castor Oil+Shea butter.
  5. Strain the herbal tea and pour the chamomile water in the same bowl.
  6. Now, warm up slowly your bowl of ingredients in a bain-marie to not affect the oils. Stir.
  7. When all these ingredients are mixed together in a paste. Take the bowl off the heat.
  8. Keep stirring and add the Panthenol.
  9. Pour it in a mold.
  10. Put it in the fridge to dry for 24hours.
  11. Patience….
  12. 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. Rinse like usual and don’t forget a last rinse with vinegar.

Tips and Feedback:

Yolanda is very happy with her new shampoo!

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

An article about Essential oils for your hair.

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

I encourage you to start making your own Natural & Organic products. It’s a lot of fun, better for your health and the environment, and cheaper!! By making your own products you will learn about ingredients and how your body works, you’ll become more conscious of yourself and the envirronment and slowly you will be happy with what you have and use less.

Have you tried to wash your hair with a Solid Shampoo? What do you think?

I will be happy to answer any questions or comments.
