Glad to read that you made the shampoo bars.
Thank you Lisa- planning on diving into that one here shortly. I did make the bars, and liked the way it turned out, but had a problem with getting it on my hair. I've been having some medical problems that make it hard for me to use a bar on my head ( and I refuse to ask for help from anyone yet). I did some playing with a shampoo bar recipe, and was able to turn it into a decent liquid shampoo soap. I use KOH instead of lye, and recalculated the recipe for that fact. Even the kids like it. The one thing we all have to remember is we have to use conditioner or ACV after using it, or the hair will have issues. I don't want to go into the issues.
If anyone is interested, I can post my recipe and a pic. I guess the whole thing has been an adventure for us.
Yes, the issues with not using conditioner and/or ACV vary greatly! What I've learned from using shampoo bars is that those in the same family using the same shampoo can have different results. Personally, I've used them in hard water and soft water and have seen a difference in how they work. Shampoo bars and the results personify those initials YMMV. Your Mileage May Vary.
Sure, post your picture and recipe!
Meanwhile, Happy Soaping!
All the best,
