How to Use Shampoo Base
Blend 1 part of shampoo base with 2 parts of water or a water based substance, such as green tea, aloe vera gel, or a hydrosol. Heat over very low heat–do not simmer or boil–until base is liquified. Stir gently to avoid too much foaming. Remove from heat as soon as the base is dissolved.
You can add nutrients such as spirulina powder, a few drops of botanical oils, or powdered plant proteins to add shine and body to your hair and help detangle.
To adjust the pH, you can add vitamin C powder or lactic acid (possibly in the form of whey–I have not yet tried this additive, but will Blog when I do!).
For special needs such as hair loss, dandruff, or scalp conditions, try adding just a drop of essential oil for every ounce of shampoo base. Too much oil of any kind will decrease the sudsing action, so you must experiment here too.
You will need to experiment to find your favorite mix. We suggest that you make up 2 ounces at a time and see how you like it before making a big batch. Adjust each batch accordingly until you find the best mix.
