I want to make my own shampoo bars but working with lye scares me a LOT. Can I use another soap base to make a shampoo bar?

I know of one (good) recipe for a M&P shampoo bar off of From Nature With Love's website: http://www.fromnaturewithlove.com/recipe/recipe.asp?recipe_id=297. You do NOT have to follow the EO suggestions. Because they use so many citrus EOs, it would make this bar very photosensitive on your hair which means in the summer, if you are a blond, it would lighten your hair like crazy which would be awesome. But you could totally leave out the citrus EOs and scent it Tutti Frutti Rooti FO if you wanted. Smiley

I think this would be an okay shampoo bar. You want a recipe with castor oil in it because that is what makes a nice, creamy lather and what really conditions your hair and scalp. The idea behind a good shampoo bar is that you don't need conditioner afterward. I have tried the above recipe (I scented it Strawberry at someone's request) and no, it's not as good as a shampoo bar made CP style, it's still pretty darn nice. (If you use goat milk MP base it makes it even nicer, IMHO.)

It looks easy enough...and not scary at all. I think I'll try it. Thank You!
