I love the way that this product holds the scents, my one issue is thickness. Is there a way to thicken the shampoo? Especially after adding EOs. I am a fan but need it to be thicker and more luxurious. What can I possibly add to it? Please this would really help.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Michaelle! I'm so glad you love the way our Liquid Shampoo Base holds scent. You can definitely try thickening this base! I would recommend using Liquid Crothix to thicken the base and start with a small test batch to make sure you like the results. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
I have very thick, but fine hair and am very picky about Shampoo. I never get a shampoo that is super conditioning that doesn't weigh my hair down until now! I purchased a sample and am now back to buy a gallon - I can't wait to add fragrance. Lots of bounce and shine and my hair feels so healthy.
I decided over a year ago to stop buying shampoo after trying a sample size of this base. I estimate by making my own shampoo, I not only have the benefit of any recipe and fragrance I like; but I estimated I saved at least $120.00 a year on Shampoo. I have very long hair, and it has worked just as well as any high end shampoo I have tried; to include many well recognized labels. I highly recommend this product to anyone interested in saving money and having an amazing shampoo.
I was worried because I have fine thin hair it would not be a good fit.
I was so impressed (my hair is still wet) I decided to write a review.
Just so happens that my conditioner was also out LOL but it is clean
and a comb went through my hair easily for the most part. I would not buy shampoo from a store again. I am sold.
I've used several bases when trying to learn how to formulate my own shampoo and this one is the best. Hair was soft and supple and the base takes additives rather well without thinning down. Very pleased.
