How do I make shampoo a bit thicker?

The shampoo is so watery. I would like to make it thicker. Experimenting using emulsifying wax isn't working so well. Any suggestions?

I though Dr Woods has added shea butter, which makes it way too greasy to wash your hair with.

Liquid Castile Soap for Shampoo Recipe
by: Kyley

Yes, you bought the wrong soap. You have to buy one that literally says on it "Liquid Castile Soap". I've never heard of the one you bought, but I know the liquid castile works.

Mountain Rose Herbs is my favorite supplier - here's a link to their Liquid Castile Soap
if you can't find it in your local shops.

Also, if you have oily hair, try leaving out the carrier oil in the recipe or use only the grapeseed oil, not the others.

Best of luck!

THANK YOU!!

Thanks for that Klyee, but i do have one more quick question, the soap that I have is watery. Did i buy the wrong soap??? My hair is like a grease bucket!!! It was advertised as liquid Castile but says 'Dr. Woods- pure black soap for all skin types.

How to make your shampoo thicker
by: Kyley

Hi there,

Thanks for posting your question. Try simply leaving out the water - use the liquid castile soap either with the other ingredients (you won't need the grapefruit seed extract if you're not using water - it's a natural preservative that stops the water from developing bacteria) or just with essential oils only.

If the liquid soap by itself is too thick, add a little bit of water until you get the thickness you want.

I'll mess around with the recipe a bit myself and post back here when I've got some results. It might be a while, though -- we've got some family health problems right now, and they're taking up quite a bit of my time.

Anyway, I hope that helps, and please feel free to let us know how it goes. I'm sure you're not the only one with this question. Thanks again for posting, and good luck!
