Silk Herbal Shampoo Soap is my original shampoo soap recipe. It's a simple yet effective recipe for all hair types. Coconut oil is used for hardness, bubbly lather, and long lasting properties. Olive oil is used to allow breath-ability and protective properties, and castor oil provides creamy silky lather as well as extra glycerin for protective and moisturizing properties. Jojoba is said to aid with damaged hair. Raw silk is added to the lye water, dissolved, and hopefully brings protein in the picture.
Shea's Garden begins with a strong lavender flower bud and eucalyptus leaf tea added just after the batch is becoming soap to ensure benefits of this herb's properties. Unrefined shea butter is melted and blended with some avocado oil and then added after the tea for their richness and conditioning to scalp and hair. When the batch is mostly soap, essential oils of lavender and eucalyptus are added for scent.
If you have hard water, you will want to use an acidic rinse as your final rinse. After shampooing and rinsing out your hair, pour a very diluted (1-2 tsp. apple cider vinegar, lemon or lime juice, etc.) in warm water over your scalp and hair. This makes water soluble those minerals left in your hair after rinsing, leaving your hair silky soft, manageable, and feather light. If you have soft water - yay for you! Just wash your hair and go! :)
