NEW! “I tried a couple of the recipes from this book and they turned out well. I also tried modifying a base recipe using some of her other suggested ingredients. If you have never made shampoo bars and you’d like to try, then this will be a useful book for you. Good for beginners.” Gal Gone Green
Great Ideas and examples “This book gives you ideas, recipes, and examples on how to make your own shampoo bars. I have been going to all natural; however it is way to expensive for my pocketbook to buy so decided to try to make my own. I love this book…. I have made three batches of them so far and they are great!” Old Grandma “Alice” — Amazon reader
“I read through Lisa’s eBook and I truly believe it’s fantastic for beginners and those that have ‘soaped’ before. For instance, beginners might like to start with some of the melt and pour recipes, then move onto rebatched/handmilled soaps. Plus it gives ideas on packaging and labeling – great idea for Mothers day etc!!” Dana of Live Green Beauty
“How to Make Handmade Shampoo Bars doesn’t just have Shampoo Bar recipes, but also educates you on the type of equipment you will need, how to store your shampoo base, fragrances and essential oils to use, shampoo molds, natural additives and the best ingredients for your hair type. The recipes are divided into two sections: Melt and Pour Shampoo Bar Recipes and Rebatch/Hand-Milled Shampoo Bar Recipes.” Cecile of The Shopping Duck
“How to Make Handmade Shampoo Bars begins by explaining the many benefits of making your own natural shampoo bars. Not only do you not have to worry about spilling shampoo bars, they also use less packaging, are perfect for travel and camping, easy to use, and they can be completely customized with your favorite scents or hair care needs. Additionally, homemade shampoo bars are economical and eco-friendly, dog safe and they can also be used on your face and body cutting out the need for additional products. What’s more, as many commercial soaps contain tallow – referred to as sodium tallowate in the ingredient list – which is render cow or pig fat, this book will allow you to create your own animal friendly products if you choose to live a vegan lifestyle.” Rebecca D. Dillon of Rebecca’s Soap Deli News
“I was even more happy to find out how user friendly this book is because I need step-by-step instructions when I’m trying something new. There’s a lot of prep work that I didn’t realize until reading this book. Now I can be prepared before I attempt to make my own shampoo bars.”
Becca of The ABC Kidz
“Written in the spirit of her book The Joy of Melt and Pour Soap Crafting, How to Make Handmade Shampoo Bars is a self-explanatory book that will have you creating shampoo bars in a cinch.” Melanie of Bear Rabbit Bear Crafts
