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.
Dark Beer & Honey begins with dark lager beer brewed with hops, added after the batch is half soap, to ensure a benefit of the beer's volume properties. Honey is stirred into the tea before adding it for its protective properties and an increase in lather.
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.

Very quick delivery and packaging. This is a shop I buy again and again. This is my go to shampooing for my hair. When I get my hair cut, the hair dressers said my hair is very healthy. I used had to wash my hair everyday, after using this shampoo, my hair is still very clean and nice for a few days.

I absolutely LOVE the Dark Beer n Honey shampoo bar. I have been using it for a few years now. It leaves my hair very clean & soft. I love knowing that I am using a hair cleaner that does not contain questionable ingredients. I am pregnant right now so I am extra cautious about what I expose myself to. I tried the No-poo option for a while & that ruined my hair. When I was going the no-poo route my hair dresser asked me "what are you doing to your hair, stop it" to me. She doesn't say that now that I use this shampoo bar. I have an oily scalp but I live in a dry climate so I can get away with washing my hair every other day to every 3rd day with this product. When I visit a humid climate I have to wash my hair daily w/ this bar. Kathleen is a joy to purchase from. She always answers messages promptly & my order arrives quickly.
