In recent years, solid shampoos have become increasingly popular. I have always boiled my own hair soap, unfortunately not everyone gets along with it. This has to do with the individuality of the hair, whether fine, short, long or colored.

What is the difference between a hair soap and a solid shampoo?

Hair soaps are boiled from oils & fats with lye. For some, it creates too much heaviness in the hair and it is hard to style.

Solid shampoos are made from synthetic surfactants, usually in powder form. They are very similar to a traditional liquid shampoo. Just dry and plastic-free, as they come in a box.

Here I want to share with you my recipe for a solid shampoo. It is only the 3 pass and I am very happy with it. Price performance is also right, it is easy and quick to make and can be scented individually.

200 g corn starch

200 g Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI = mild, anionic surfactant that is good for making shampoos and bath additives).

50 g cocoa butter

40 g shea butter

50 - 70 drops of essential oil

colorants of your choice

Mix powdered substances well, avoid inhaling SCI, melt cocoa butter and shea butter slowly and mix with powdered substances to a dough like consistency.

Finally, add the essential oils and press the mixture into silicone molds. After a few hours, unmold and let harden for 1 - 2 days.

The quantity gives approx. 4 - 5 pieces of 100 g. Store in a dry place.

Have fun trying out!
