Shampoo Bar Official Announcement

Beer & Seaweed Shampoo Bars
I’ve been considering discontinuing the Beer & Seaweed Shampoo Bars. They have been out of stock for almost a month, and I requested that anyone who would like to see them re-stocked would send me a message to that effect. The result?

“I would like to see them stay, Amy. I would even just buy a whole batch at a time if you would make it.”

“I like shampoo bars because when I use it, my hair is shiny and feels light, not weighted down. It’s clean! I appreciate using natural products and like that you are willing to make a variety of items.”

“So sad that it is out of stock! Can’t wait ’til it is back so I can stock up!”

“My husband’s hair is softer than it has been in years and I was hoping to order some bars for him and my youngest son. I will pre-purchase six or more bars if you will make it again.”

Also had a customer who came to me in person and said she would buy up half a batch…and another who told me she just loves the Deep Patchouli scent.

Interestingly enough, I believe ALL of the above folks are fans of the Deep Patchouli scent. So today….I made a batch. I had a near disaster as the mostly full bag of soap let go from where it was nesting at the top and landed on a towel on the floor! Here’s a photo (from my phone) of me pouring the shampoo bars last June, just so you get an idea of what I’m talking about:

Pouring Shampoo Bars – last June

Fortunately, I was able to salvage almost all of it without too much damage. Scared me pretty good though!

I will keep the Deep Patchouli shampoo bars in stock for now (no Lemongrass Herbal Mint) and see how it goes! They will be available for purchase after the holidays are past us and my girls are back in school – I believe that would be January 3rd!

  1. I make a Lemongrass, orange shampoo bar and my customers love it too! At first they buy one bar then come back for two then like yours they want a whole batch to last them. It amaze and please me. And just think…I didn’t even know what a shampoo bar was until I read this blog last year. Thanks Amy!

  2. Wow -glad you dodged a disaster! I’m awestruck by your long bag-o-soap, m’dear, what a fabulous idea! I’ve always been afraid to try round soaps in PVC pipe for fear of not getting them back out. Do you mind sharing what type of tube-bag you use and where I might order such an animal? 😉 Have a great day Amy! ~Becky

  3. So happy to hear the shampoo bar will be returning. Thanks! It’s a great product. Glad you weren’t daunted by your accident making this batch.
    Good job, Amy! Happy Holidays!

  4. This is good news indeed!!! Let me know when I can replenish my supply. You may have to make another batch so we can all be sure to get some!

  5. I have been thinking about discontinueing my shampoo bars too for lack of sales but like you. When I mentioned it I heard all about how the ones who do buy them occassionaly just love them- same as you have.

  6. I love the picture. I am new to soap making and had no idea you could make soap in a bag. I used a PVC pipe for my round soap but only 15 or so inches of pipe so I could line it. I would love to get some bags to use as lining. Where do you get those bags? Thanks.

    Also I have never thought about making my own shampoo (either liquid or bar form). Will definitely be doing some research.

    So much to learn. But it is so much fun. Thanks for your web site and all the wonderful ideas.

  7. I just bought the shampoo bar last week and I love it! I do use the acv rinse and my hair is soft and not as frizzy. Thank you and please continue to make them. I will be coming back for more!
