So, I've read that shampoo is just soap woth an adjusted PH. I'm wanting to make my own shampoo, soap, and conditioner... I prefer liquid and do not have a slow cooker to make shampoo in. My question is, if I find a shampoo recipe that requires a slow cooker, can u do it on the stove top to hot process it into gel and then soften into liquid? My other issue is that I've now attempted to make soap paste twice and had to pitch the first batch. The 2nd batch is just not dissolving, I get getting more gel! Did I over cook it?
