Learn How to Make Your Own Naturally Balanced Shampoo Bars
Up there: a brand new publication! Yippeeee! It's hot off the digital presses (is that the correct term when it's not hard copy?)
And I better come clean (pun totally intended): this book is the result of a few requests.
OK, that's not entirely true. It's been more like a continuous stream of polite-but-slightly-insistent queries for a publication about 'natural shampoo bars'.
I mean, a lot of you have been so super duper extra interested in my take on shampoo bars that I started chatting about it with my colleague in Formulators Kitchen, Rebecca Wright.
Guess what she said.
She told me she was experiencing the EXACT SAME THING.
(insert ah-ha moment and girlish squeal of delight)
You: Gee, What Happened Next, Lise?You have already figured out what happened next, you clever thing. Rebecca and decided to join forces and do this book together.
So we did!
We had a blast developing formulas, testing them, comparing notes, and writing about the different ways you could tweak them without compromising quality or performance.
We set out rules too. The formulas had to be:
- preservative free
- have a long shelf life
- naturally pH balanced
- full of hair and scalp boosting botanicals
- easy to make
And the book had to include something for
- every scalp type
- every hair type
- every level of cosmetics making experience
- as many different tastes and preferences as humanly possible
And guess what else?
We wanted to tell you a little bit about the botanicals and different ingredients we discussed and selected, so we made an entire section about that too.
All the Rage and For All the Right ReasonsCome to think of it, it's not really all that strange Rebecca and I have been bombarded with requests for shampoo bar formulas.
They are all the rage, they're travel friendly, planet-friendly, fun, easy to make and use, and in hindsight I totally understand why so many of you have been asking for this publication.
