Silk Herbal Shampoo Soap is my original shampoo soap recipe. It's a simple yet effective recipe for normal to dry 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.
The Marsh Mallow varieties are made for dry hair. It begins with the marsh mallow root tea, added after the batch has become half soap to ensure the herb's demulcent properties. A blend of my MEmu facial oil with a bit of avocado oil are then added to provide rich conditioning properties.
This bar is Unscented.
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! :)
Packaged as a chunk style (2 7/8"x2"x11/4") @ 4.5 oz. bar with full disclosure label. Half bar is an option here. The bar is about 2 1/4 oz. with full disclosure label.

I received my shampoo soaps just the other day and have been using this one ever since. I really was surprised how well it lathered and I really like how clean my hair feels.

This is wonderful for my dry hair. Leaves it feeling nicely moisturized and smooth and soft. Truly unscented which I appreciate. Kathleen was so patient with me as I made up my mind on what to order. Great customer service and a great product. Many thanks.
