Silk Herbal Shampoo Soap, Nettles and Neem


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.

Nettles and Neem begins with a strong nettle leaf and stem tea added just after the batch is becoming soap. Carrier oils of Emu and neem are blended and added to the batch after the tea. Essential oils of tea tree, rosemary, and basil are added for scent (smells just like lemon meringue!).

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! :)

Ordered 3 different shampoo bars, all are great. My hair feels soft and clean. A little bit goes a long way. Will definitely order again and will recommend to anyone I know that wants to make the switch.

Wonderful shampoo. My hair feels wonderful using this.

Received this in the mail promptly and was surprised at how much attention to detail in the packaging you took, including the hand written thank you. Already started using the bar with much success. Highly recommend this Etsy shop, especially her wide selection of shampoo bars.

Although this shampoo bar does contain some essential oils, they are scalp healthy ones, and the nettle tea helps it to be non-itchy. Great combination for hair, too.

I've tried a few of the shampoo bars from this shop, and while they were all wonderful, this one agrees with my hair the best (thin and a bit dry). Very happy with how kind this shampoo is to my hair! :)
