How to - Conditioning Shampoo Bars
From looking at that picture I'd be tempted to think we were making cookies today, but we're not. These little cuties are solid shampoo bars.
With summer and vacation time quickly approaching, you might want to consider popping one of these travel-friendly shampoo bars into your bag.
And guess what, they're super simple to make.
The dry surfactants in these are coconut-based, and there are a couple of hair conditioning goodies added so you won't need any additional products to cleanse and condition your hair while traveling.
OK I have a confession to make.
You don't need to have a vacation planned to make and use these bars - they're great to use at home as well.
Are you ready to get busy making shampoo bars?
