making your own shampoo.

didnt know where this topic belongs...

Does anyone make shampoo using Dr. Bronners? If so how do you do it and what is the recipe? I tried doing it about a month ago and whatever I made it didn't work out as a shampoo so I just used it as body wash. It left my hair very oily. But it wasn't really oily. Like when I ran my fingers through it it had a feeling of being kind of squeaky clean and my fingers would kind of get stuck? hahaha sounds gross.

if you have suggestions about where I could post this instead of here im all ears thank you!!

Straight Dr. B's can dry your hair out. So you have to use a PH balanced conditioner. I buy an empty bottle and add 2 oz Dr. B's to 4 oz water and that helps a bit.

I think there are more elaborate recipes, but I just like using it diluted. I also use it in hand soap pumps, for mopping the kitchen floor, wiping down the kitchen! I love it!
