The Best DIY Shampoo Bar | Glow Reviews 2018 2019




If you’ve never tried a shampoo bar before, now is the time to start! This bar’s moisturizing base is made from oatmeal soap and nourishing oils, while the orange zest adds a refreshing citrus scent and the rosemary and salt help strengthen and add volume to your hair. Not only is this bar all-natural and sulfate-free, it’s also easy to take on the go. Get ready to shake up your shower routine!

INGREDIENTS

1 pound oatmeal melt and pour soap base, chopped
1 teaspoon shea butter
1 teaspoon castor oil
1 teaspoon almond oil
1 packet orange food coloring (Color Garden)
30 drops grapefruit essential oil
20 drops orange essential oil
10 drops rosemary essential oil
2 oranges, zested
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
1 tablespoon sea salt
Spray bottle of rubbing alcohol
8 cavity silicone mold

DIRECTIONS

Wash an 8 cavity soap mold and place on a baking sheet to dry.

Place the chopped soap base into a large bowl and set on top of a pot of simmering water. Make sure the water is no higher than medium low to avoid burning the soap base.

Occasionally stir the soap base until melted, about 15 minutes. Turn the burner off and add the shea butter, castor oil, almond oil, and food coloring. Stir together until the shea butter melts. Add the three essential oils. Mix in the orange zest, rosemary, and sea salt. Place a glass measuring cup in the microwave on high for 3 minutes until the glass is very hot. Transfer the shampoo mixture into the measuring cup.

Spray the molds with rubbing alcohol. Pour the shampoo mixture into the mold about ¾ of the way full. Use a spoon or popsicle stick to stir the mixture in between each pour so the rosemary and orange zest don’t settle. Spray the top of the bars with rubbing alcohol one more time to help prevent any air bubbles. Allow it to set at room temperature for about 15 minutes, then transfer to the freezer for another 15 minutes. Pop the shampoo bars out of the mold and allow them to set overnight. Rub on to wet hair in the shower to nourish and add volume to your hair.

  1. Alguien me lo puede traducir en español 😗😗😗😗😗

  2. THIS IS NOT SHAMPOO. THIS IS HOT PROCESS SOAP AKA MELT AND POUR…

  3. Hello. Amazing video!!! I'd like to ask you if there is anything else than alcohol that can be sprayed ? Thanks in advance

  4. Guys I have tried some shampoo bars, like the lush ones and theyre all drying even the moisturizing ones- idk if this one works, but i do know that my Ethique frizz wrangler is amazing, better than my expensive bottle shampoos and i rarely need conditioner, like wtf? how is an all natural product better than expensive ass shampoo and conditioners. so this is my recommendation, instead of making this mess.

  5. I've seen other videos use lye. Is the soap melts used to skip over that step?

  6. or buy a shampoo bottle

  7. Se puede usar jabón de castilla sólido para hacer shampoo en barra?

  8. Salt make our hair white

  9. PH IS TOO HIGH FOR HAIR ON THIS BAR.

  10. This is the stupidest thing I've seen in a long time

  11. how about the dates for how long it takes

  12. This want me to smell this bar

  13. M&P soaps are fun to make but make sure you follow the recommended % of the total amount of additives in your M&Ps. The additives she's added seem way above it & fresh botanical additives are a no no unless you don't mind taking a risk.

  14. Just for the sake of trying something different I made this at home. And let me tell you that its shit. I have oily skin and scalp. It made my scalp super dry and my hair super frizzy. And to compensate that my body produced more oil than usual which made my hair super greasy in a day. And the smell of so many essential oils is very overpowering. Also, the fresh botanicals got stuck in my hair(I have really fine hair so if you have curly hair then you're in for a lot of trouble). I'll really not suggest this to anyone as a shampoo. Maybe as a body soap.

  15. BAD IDEA MELT AND POUR SOAPS ARE ONLY FOR SOAP, NEVER FOR HAIR!!!!! IT WILL DRY YOUR HAIR OUT SO BAD!!!

  16. Don’t do this lmao. This is literally just a bar of overly scented hand soap

  17. what is the purpose of the salt? tia

  18. This is a terrible recipe. I recommend J.R Liggetts for shampoo bars

  19. your additives will turn brown and go bad in soap. it's not appropriate to put that coloring in soap. know your stuff before trying to teach others. soap is not a replacement for shampoo.

  20. nooooooooo…. I hate videos like this… then it prevents people wanting to try a proper shampoo bar. Hint if it has melt and pour which is super drying by the way DO NOT BUY IT. I've been working on my formulation for 6 months and still I'm not happy with it.

  21. With using a M&P soap base the PH is going to way to high.. this is a soap bar no shampoo bar

  22. This diy is wrong on so many levels! Fresh herbs, so much essential oil and so much extra oils and butters in m&p base. Thats not how you do m&p base! It will go bad and isn't really good to use.

  23. thats a lot of essential oils compared to the carrier oils, wc is bad bc using essentials alone is sensitizing therefore for self care use it must be diluted first, usually like around 6 drops for maybe 30ml of carrier

  24. Oh God this is a terrible recipe

  25. I'd rather make my soap using oils instead of a melt and pour soap base. And without food coloring.

  26. Never, ever add fresh botanicals or fruit to a melt and pour base. It WILL mold. You may not see the mold,but it will be there.

  27. pH is too high.

  28. Gross. Melt and pour as shampoo? Hell no

  29. This seems like what could have been a good idea, ruined by someone who doesn’t know how to make soap or understand why shampoo is different from body bars.

  30. ESPAÑOL

  31. What is the "soap base" made of? Seems like a generic term and doesn't well inform the audience of the actual active ingredient to make the shampoo.

  32. Soap on your hair? No.

  33. Where do you get these ingredients??

  34. this is really not a great idea. MOST melt and pour soaps you find in a hobby shop are going to be full of sulfates, etc. the pH will be too high for hair. the orange zest, being fresh, is going to start rotting before too long. if one is going to use fresh botanicals, they need to be very fine and put in the soap making process with the lye so that it will not rot. (yes melt and pour was originally made with lye).

  35. Or mix shampoo with beeswax or soap base!!

    LoL😂😂

  36. grapefruit oil is out I'll break out

  37. ❤️
