Shampoo Bar Interview

shampoo-bar3Leslie Hughes of Joyful Soaps has put together an interview of myself and The Soap Sister about our experiences with shampoo bars on her blog. (Update: this blog is no longer available)

While I love using Lisa’s Opus Shampoo Bar recipe, I’m planning to do a bit more experimenting with some other ingredients today – such as nettle powder, seaweed powder, and hemp seed oil. I think I even have some panthenol in my supply cupboard. (Does that stuff ever go bad?) I still believe that beer is the liquid of choice in a shampoo bar, but I may try one with some chamomile tea again.

The girls and I are planning a little trip to Screamin Oaks Farm tomorrow morning to pick up some more fresh goat’s milk so I can try some of the wonderful techniques that so many of you shared on how to make sure all the lye gets dissolved in my goat’s milk soaps.

I never would have given a shampoo bar a second thought until I read your posts. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us and hope you make a great bar to sell! I’d love to try it!

  2. @Lisa – Me too!
