Default Total newbie need help making some great beard stuff!!!

I am a total newbie, ignorant to making soap, shampoo, conditioner making. I'd like to find out how to make a ''beard wash'' shampoo and conditioner that would be lye free, and would not taste bad if it got in your mouth very much. I make beard oil and know a little bit about that and essential oils and and soap safe fragrance oils. I also REALLY want to make a great leave in conditioner as well and a more ''harder butter'' consistency of creamier beard balm, since almost all of the stuff out there is WAY to hard and waxy for a nice, soft beard. Yes, I know I'm asking a lot, but I'm a very eager student and would love to make a good quality NATURAL product that my fellow bearded men would REALLY love to put in their beards. Since beards are more course, most of the most amazing recipes I've seen have been made more for black people's hair, but only problem is you have to refrigerate it. Obviously looking for the most natural stable product. I just joined the site, so any helpful hints and info is beyond appreciated. Thank you all very much!

Hey, You can check out the following links for reference for making beard shampoo which I found a few days before:

I am a beard lover and always prefer to apply natural products like this on my beard so as to avoid dryness and itching and always suggest others to do the same.

If you want a creamier beard balm, just omit the beeswax. In all the balm recipes, it is what gives the hold and hardness in the balm.

I recommend staying away from shampoos and beard washes. They might work for some people, but I find them harsh for daily use since they strip the oils in the beard and from the skin underneath. A good light beard oil (grapeseed and avocado are my favourite) and taking care to rinse your beard with lukewarm or cold water daily in the shower is very often enough to keep it clean and healthy. I clean with a very small amount of moisturizing soap once a week and condition with an apple cider vinegar solution.

I also suggest not applying scented oil every day, since the essential oils can build up over time and cause irritation (don't ask me how I know this...).

Hey there! Read your post and got what you wanna ask. If you want to make beard balm and beard conditioner, suggested is that for cleaning capability you can add some jojoba or coconut oil, little amount of castile soap for lather purpose, peppermint oil for deep conditioning and tea tree oil for slight fragrance. One can also add distilled water for consistency. Add some essential oils to keep irritation at bay. Apply once in a day.
