    Not sure if it’s possible to do this but how do you solidify liquid shampoo into bars? I just found out about shampoo bars and I know they’d be a better alternative for me, but I have a bunch of my favorite liquid shampoo left and was hoping there’s a way to make it into shampoo bars.

    Thanks for the help :mrgreen:

    Maybe freeze it. :mrgreen:

    The shampoo bars that are made here are either made from soap or from synthetic detergents that are solid by nature. I'm afraid there is no good way to turn a liquid shampoo into a solid shampoo bar.

    I'm afraid I agree with the others. Anything you might do to a liquid shampoo to solidify it is going to change how it lathers and feels and probably not for the better. I would use the liquid product as-is and go from there.

    Thanks I figured that would be the answer considering googling doesn't return any good answers :(

    Having that liquid shampoo in bar form wouldn't then make it in to a bar that might be better for you than the liquid was - the only difference would be that it would be a bar of the exact same product rather than liquid.

    As has been pointed out, shampoo bars are formulated differently, so it's not the fact that they are bars, but rather the recipe itself that makes them potentially better for you
