Here are the ingredients on the left and the finished product on the right;
1/4 cup of distilled water, 1/4 cup liquid castile soap, 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil. Mix together. I used Dr. Bronner's almond scented castile soap and doubled the recipe. As you can see in the picture, it barely made half a bottle. So I made another double batch and poured that in as well.
Now I have it made - I HAVE to try it out, right? I decided to use it as a body wash as well, since all the ingredients are so mild. 2 for 1 is always nice! The soap was very sudsy and had a great smell. I felt really clean and hours later, I can still smell that clean, almondy scent.
As for my hair.....it's feeling a little dry and frizzy. I have wild natural waves/curls and I'm used to the frizzies. But, after reading different blogs and sites about homemade shampoo, I was expecting my hair to be like this. It can take several weeks for my hair to get used to not using commercial/chemical shampoos. I also ordered some cocoa butter that I will use as a conditioner. I'll scoop out a tiny bit, warm it in my fingers, then finger-comb it through my hair, concentrating on the ends. That should show up next week so I'll update you all on the frizzy problem. For now, my hair smells clean and feels light. All I can ask for!!
Hope you enjoyed my experiment! And maybe you're even motivated to try it yourself!
