:) :) Hi
I am looking for a recipe for making your own shampoo and maybe conditioner. I have just read an article on the chemicals in these products and thought that I would see if you could make your own.

Sham---something that is not what it purport to be, imposter, hoax.

Why do we not use real poo instead of sham-poo? <grin>

Here's one I've used and liked-
Chamomile shampoo(from
4 bags of Chamomile tea (or 1 handful of fresh Chamomile flowers)
4 tablespoons pure soap flakes (I grate up a bar of Ivory)
1 1/2 tablespoons glycerin
Let the tea bags steep in 1 1/2 cups of boiled water for 10 minutes. Remove the tea bags and with the remaining liquid add the soap flakes. Let stand until the soap softens. Stir in glycerin until mixture is well blended. Pour into a bottle. Keep in a dark, cool place.

I've also used eggs,olive oil,hyd.puroxide(from $1 store) and apple cider vinegar.
