I made my first syndet shampoo today with a kit I got from etsy. Came with everything but preservative, scent and color. It even included the actual recipe so I can just buy the ingredients instead of the kit. It mixed easy, melted quickly in the microwave and was liquid enough to pour. I scented these with 1 part imogene rose and 2 parts BB champagne. For some reason I was a bit intimidated to try these, maybe it was due to all the unfamiliar ingredients. Now that I know I can do it, its time to make some from scratch. I like these so much more than liquid shampoo. They aren't as harsh as sulfate poo but more cleansing than sulfate free poo. No conditioner and my hair is soft & shiny.
