Silk Herbal Shampoo Soap is my original shampoo soap recipe. It's a simple yet effective recipe for normal to dry 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.

The Marsh Mallow varieties are made for dry hair. It begins with the marsh mallow root tea, added after the batch has become half soap to ensure the herb's demulcent properties. A blend of my MEmu facial oil with a bit of avocado oil are then added to provide rich conditioning properties.

Marshmallow Signature Garden is made with my own special blend of lavender, bergamot, cypress, geranium rose, and roman chamomile oils. It represents every category in the plant kingdom and smells so wonderful, like an early summer garden. I created the blend for my own maturing skin and hair.

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! :)
