Revitalizing Rosemary Mint Shampoo with Recipe

This elegant, but easy "cold-mix" shampoo is perfect for first-time shampoo makers! This formula is recommended for all hair types. Apple Surfactant, DLS Mild, and Foaming Oats provide good foaming with gentle cleansing. Honeyquat, Silk Amino Acids and Shea Butter WS work well together to lightly condition and leave hair sleek and soft. Rosemary and Peppermint Essential Oils have a fresh, clean scent and will also stimulate and revitalize scalp. Liquid Crothix is an excellent and easy to use thickener that also helps to condition. Leucidal Liquid SF is a natural preservative that functions very well in this formula.

All ingredients are liquid and do not require heating.
