I just unmolded my first batch of shampoo bars. I’m really excited to see how these turn out! They were made with a lot of nourishing oils, so they’ll need to cure for 8 weeks – which a bit longer than regular cold process soaps.
Also, they smell fantastic. I used a combination of Rosemary & Peppermint Essential Oils, as well as Tea Tree Oil. Each of those oils are individually beneficial for hair/scalp, but together…it’s a healthy hair/scalp super trinity!
Citric acid was added to slightly lower pH level for a more head-friendly bar of soap. DL-Panthenol, a.k.a. Pro-Vitamin B5, will ensure that your hair and scalp retain moisture.
