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.

Nettles and Neem begins with a strong nettle leaf and stem tea added just after the batch is becoming soap. Carrier oils of Emu and neem are blended and added to the batch after the tea. Essential oils of tea tree, rosemary, and basil are added for scent (smells just like lemon meringue!).

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! :)
