Silk & Shine Shampoo

I’m pretty darn excited to finally share a formulation for a liquid shampoo! I’ve had a lot of requests for a non-soap liquid shampoo over the last few years, and here we are. This one stars a surfactant blend that kicks off oodles of dense, thick lather, leaving your hair feeling all kinds of clean and silky. There are some conditioning goodies for manageability and panthenol + silk for added shine and bounce. It’s also cold-processed, so making it is as easy as measure, stir, and wait!

Argan Rose Conditioning Hair Balm

The Argan Rose goodness continues today with this silky & nourishing Argan Rose Conditioning Hair Balm. It’s like the lovechild of an oil-based hair serum and a solid conditioner bar. This balm has the richness of the oil-based serum, the conditioning wonderfulness/solidity of the conditioner bar, and the nourishing goodness both. Starring luxurious argan oil, fragrant rose wax, and ultralight Neossance® Hemisqualane, this conditioning hair balm is a truly decadent hair treat.

Pink Clay Mosaic Shampoo Bars

Today we’re squishin’ and mixin’ up a batch of pretty pink sulphate-free shampoo bars, featuring Australian pink clay and a blend of gentle surfactants. These beautiful bars kick out all kinds of gorgeous, creamy lather, and leave your hair wonderfully clean. They also take on a really cool mosaic-like appearance as you use them thanks to the contrast between the lumpy white Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI) and the deep pink clay. Neat!

Argan Rose Cleansing Conditioner

If you’re a fan of cleansing conditioners, I think you’re going to like this Argan Rose Cleansing Conditioner. It gently cleanses your hair, leaving it all kinds of soft and shiny with a lingering rosy, lemony scent. Luxurious argan oil and fragrant rose hydrosol star in the formulation, and I’ve also included two newer ingredients for a bit of added fun! If you don’t want a cleansing conditioner you can easily modify the formulation to be a regular conditioner, too.

Argan Rose Pressed Shampoo Bars

These beautiful Argan Rose Pressed Shampoo Bars were inspired by a popular LUSH product, and I’ve had a ton of fun developing and testing this formulation. It is structured very differently from other shampoo bars I’ve shared, with no melted fatty hardeners like cocoa butter or stearic acid. It also includes water, glycerin, and carrageenan, which all seemed rather novel when I first started working on these, but I’m thrilled with how it’s all turned out. The finished bars lather up incredibly decadently—if there’s such a thing as “too much” lather, this might be it! Rich, silky bubbles for days 😍 I’ve been using this bar as a shampoo and body wash, and I hope you love it as much as I do!

Featherweight Leave-In Hair Conditioner

Today we’re whipping up a simple, seven-ingredient Featherweight Leave-In Hair Conditioner that is brilliant for adding moisture and shine to hair that’s not very tolerant of oils. I’ve been using variations on this conditioner for over a year now, and I love how it softens and smooths my hair without leaving it looking stringy or dirty. I particularly love it during dry winter months (our dew point is usually well below 0°C… last week it was below -30°C!) and if I’ve been using hot tools on my hair. If you don’t have all seven ingredients you can pare down the formulation to just use four or five, too!
