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!
