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.

Green Herbals begins with strong lavender flower bud tea, added after the batch is half soap, to ensure a benefit of the herbs' hair loving properties. Adding emu oil because of its reputation of being wonderful for hair problems and hemp seed oil for its nourishing and soothing properties. Oils of tea tree, rosemary, and basil are added for scent. Rosemary is a hair loving herb, tea tree is used for skin/hair problems, and basil brings a freshness to this scent.

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! :)
