I am having some hair issues and want to try making my own shampoo. I tried a shampoo bar and at first I thought it was good but after a few weeks of usage my hair's just as bad if not worse. :/ I'm going to try some hot oil treatments using oil infused with some hair friendly herbs. I saw the one recipe on the recipe post and it looks pretty simple though I've never made liquid soap and I don't have potassium hydroxide. I am also looking at some of the recipes over at the Herbarie but they have so many ingredients which is okay if I know I'll actually use the stuff. LOL So what's the difference between making a liquid soap shampoo and one of these others? Also, there are so many to choose from and I'm wondering how difficult it is to alter these recipes or if that's even wise.
