I first discovered and used a salt shampoo from Etsy many many years back. While that particular shop is no longer in business, I always loved the extra volume and texture it gave my hair. Having fine, typically limp hair, the salt brought out my hair’s natural waves that I’d forgotten I have, and made it more lush, thick and luxurious.

I recently rediscovered salt shampoo with Pacifica’s Salty Waves hair care line. This in turn inspired me to create my own milk and egg sea salt shampoo bar infused with ginger and sea kelp.

Formulated using coconut oil for strong, shiny hair, this natural sea salt shampoo bar recipe also contains milk and egg to moisturize and condition hair. In addition I also added ginger essential oil and sea kelp for their hair care benefits.

Sea kelp, which is a natural source of iodine, treats dandruff while also strengthening and nourishing both your hair and scalp. Like sea kelp, ginger essential oil also treats dandruff. Additionally, ginger essential oil can boost hair growth and diminish hair loss. It also makes hair soft and shiny. (Not to mention it smells AMAZING!)

Not only will your hair love the combination of ingredients found in my natural sea salt shampoo bar recipe, but you’ll also love how long it lasts! Just one bar should last about the same amount of time as two to three bottles of a similar shampoo in liquid form.

My sea salt shampoo bar recipe contains 75% sea salt and 30% superfat. While salt bars typically make incredibly hard bars of soap, I reduced the water to 30% of the oil in this recipe to compensate for the addition of the egg. You can use either one whole egg for my salt shampoo bar or two egg yolks as desired.

Milk & Egg Sea Salt Shampoo Bar Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

14 oz. coconut oil

4.2 fl. oz. half and half
1.8 oz. sodium hydroxide/lye

10.5 oz. fine sea salt
one egg (or two egg yolks)
1 Tablespoon kelp powder
.5 oz. fresh ginger essential oil
1 teaspoon alpine green mica (optional)

Instructions:

My sea salt shampoo bar recipe yields six soap bars weighing about 5 oz. each. I used this silicone chrysanthemum mold for this soap recipe.

Begin by measuring out the half and half in fluid ounces. Place the half and half in your freezer until it is slushy with a thin layer of ice on top. In the meantime, remove the egg (or eggs) from the refrigerator and bring to room temperature.

While you are waiting, collect all of the other ingredients and equipment you’ll need for making my sea salt shampoo bar recipe. This includes proper eye protection, long sleeved clothing and gloves.

You should also double check any containers you are using to be sure they are heat safe. None of your containers or your utensils used for soapmaking should be aluminum. Stick to stainless steel, Type 5 polypropylene plastic and tempered glass to avoid a potential disaster.

If you’ve never made homemade soap before, I recommend reviewing my cold process soapmaking tutorial before getting started. This will help you gain a better understanding of the process as well as help you determine if my milk & egg sea salt shampoo bar recipe is the best recipe to start with.

Once your egg or egg yolks reach room temperature and your half and half is icy cold, you are ready to get started!

Using a digital scale weigh out the coconut oil into a heat safe container. Then, depending on the container used, either heat the coconut oil until melted at reduced power in the microwave, in a double boiler or over medium-low heat on the stovetop. Once melted, remove the coconut oil from heat, then set aside to cool.

In a separate container, weigh out the lye called for in the recipe. Pour the lye into the half and half and then stir until all the lye has dissolved. Set aside.

In the interim, measure out the kelp powder and mica (for color if desired) and weigh out the ginger essential oil and sea salt.

Once your coconut oil has cooled to around 90°F, remove about a cup of the oil from the container. Add the egg (to temper it so you don’t end up with scrambled eggs) and whisk until combined.

Now slowly pour the half and half and lye mixture into the main container of melted coconut oil. Mix briefly using an immersion blender, then add the remaining coconut oil and egg.

Mix again using the immersion blender until combined, then add the salt, kelp powder, essential oil and mica. Continue mixing until you reach trace, then pour evenly into each of your mold’s six cavities.

Lightly cover the mold with parchment paper or foodservice film and set aside overnight. You can unmold your sea salt shampoo bars the next day.

All that’s left now is to allow your shampoo bars to cure for four to six weeks prior to use. Once cured, simply massage your shampoo bar onto your wet hair and scalp as desired. Then rinse out and follow with an apple cider vinegar rinse or my homemade scalp tonic recipe.

Ingredients:

7.2 oz. apricot kernel oil
7.2 oz. argan oil
10.8 oz. babassu oil
7.2 oz. refined & deodorized cocoa butter
11.52 oz. refined 76°F melt point coconut oil
3.6 oz. sweet almond oil
7.2 oz. clear/refined jojoba oil
10.8 oz. pomace olive oil
3.6 oz. refined & deodorized shea butter
2.88 oz. rosehip (seed) oil

23.7 oz. distilled water
9.5 oz. lye/sodium hydroxide

2 oz. silk amino acids powder
3 Tablespoons French green clay
4.5 oz. Fresh Ginger Lime fragrance oil, or scent of choice

Instructions:

This homemade shampoo bar recipe yields approximately 20-24 homemade soap bars depending on how they are cut and uses two of my DIY wooden loaf soap molds. If you want to resize this recipe, I superfatted this recipe at 7% with water as percent of oil rate at 33%.

To make this homemade shampoo bar recipe you’ll need to follow my basic cold process soapmaking instructions taking all safety precautions necessary.

Begin by weighing out the lye and water and pouring the lye into the distilled water, mixing until dissolved. Set aside to cool.

Next , using your digital scale, weigh out all of the soapmaking oils and butters and combine in a large stainless steel pot. Heat over medium on the stove until all of the ingredients have melted then remove from heat. Set aside to cool.

Once the oils and lye/water reach around 95°-100°F you can begin the soapmaking process. I generally add my dry ingredients to the oils before adding the lye/water but you can add the clay and silk when you’d like by either mixing into the oils before adding the lye/water or adding to the soap at a light trace.

Pour the lye/water into the oils and mix with a stick blender until you reach a light trace. Then add the fragrance oil along with the silk amino acids powder and French green clay if you did not add these previously. Mix well then pour into your prepared soap molds and cover. After 24 hours have passed you can unmold your homemade soap loafs and cut into bars.

Allow your fresh homemade shampoo bars to cure for 4-6 weeks before use, then package and label as desired.

Natural Homemade Jojoba and Aloe Soap and Shampoo Bar Recipe - How to Make Cold Process Soap

I’ve started experimenting with new soapmaking oils and ingredients recently. You may have already tried my Handmade Skin Loving Soap Recipe which contains not only my favorite butters – shea and illipe – but also a combination of rich soapmaking oils known for their skin conditioning properties – jojoba oil, soybean oil and rice bran oil. For this homemade jojoba and aloe soap recipe I wanted to combine ingredients that were known for not only their benefits to skin, but to hair as well, in order to create a multi-purpose bar of soap

Jojoba oil makes for a wonderful scalp cleanser for hair and absorbs quickly into skin since it’s similar to our skin’s own sebum. It helps to lock in moisture and reduce frizziness as well as help to strengthen hair and prevent split ends.

The Benefits of Aloe Vera in Soapmaking for Both Skin and Hair - DIY Homemade Cold Process Soap and Shampoo Bar Recipe

Aloe vera not only soothes skin, but it’s also been shown to promote hair growth it also helps to alleviate itching and dryness especially for those who suffer from scalp psoriasis. In addition, aloe helps hair to retain water and moisture and it’s anti-fungal properties also help to curb dandruff.

Illipe butter is a natural moisturizer that not only helps to prevent wrinkles and reduce inflammation, but also assists in preventing acne and eczema.

Handmade Jojoba & Aloe Soap Recipe

Ingredients:

4.5 oz. lye (sodium hydroxide)
10 fluid oz. distilled water

3 oz. aloe vera gel
2 oz. skin safe fragrance oil or up to 1 oz. essential oils of choice, optional
.2 oz. dried rose petals, optional

Directions:

For this homemade jojoba and aloe soap recipe, you will be following your basic cold process soapmaking instructions. If you have never made soap before, I recommend familiarizing yourself with the process before attempting this soap recipe as well as starting with a simpler recipe that contains fewer and less expensive ingredients should your first attempt at soapmaking fail.

This recipe fits nicely inside one of my loaf soap molds. Find out how to make your own wooden soap mold here as well as how to line your molds and alternate resources for sourcing lye.

Start by preparing your lye-water so it can begin cooling. Next, measure out the distilled water called for in the recipe into a large glass pyrex measuring cup or plastic pitcher. Then weigh out your lye using a digital kitchen scale and slowly pour into your distilled water in a well ventilated area. Stir with a non-aluminum utensil and set aside to cool.

Then, using a digital kitchen scale, weigh out your oils and butters and combine in a large non-aluminum pot. Place the pot on the stove and set to medium. Watch closely so that your oils don’t burn or start to boil. As soon as the oils have melted completely, remove from heat and turn off your burner. Set aside to cool. Keep tabs on the temperatures of you lye-water and oils with a kitchen thermometer. Once these both reach about 100°F you are ready to combine them.

Natural DIY Homemade Soap Recipe - Ingredients for Making Jojoba Oil and Aloe Soap and Shampoo Bar

While you are waiting on your lye-water and oils to cool, you can line your soap mold and prepare your other ingredients. Weigh out your aloe vera gel in a clean glass pyrex measuring cup and set aside. In a separate container, weigh out your fragrance or essential oils. I used a white tea fragrance for my own batch of this soap.

However, you can also use essential oils based on their skin care properties. For dandruff or acne, try using a combination of rosemary and peppermint essential oils with just a touch of tea tree oil.

You can also mix skin safe fragrance oils and essential oils together for your very own custom fragrance. Pink grapefruit fragrance oil mixed with a small amount of lemongrass and peppermint for example, smells heavenly and is perfect for summer. You can also weigh out your dried rose petals in a bowl or other container and set aside. I chose to use freshly dried pink rose petals from my rose bushes as I just happened to have them on hand (not knowing they would turn brown. Therefore I recommend saving these for the top of your soap once you pour it into the mold.)

Once your oils and lye-water have cooled, you’ll start by pouring the aloe vera gel into your melted oils. Next, slowly pour your lye-water into the mixture then use a stick (or immersion hand) blender to mix the ingredients. Once your soap reaches trace, mix in your fragrance and/or essential oils and rose petals if desired. Blend thoroughly, then pour your soap into the mold, cover with a piece of cardboard (or lid) followed by a towel to insulate the soap and set aside for 24 hours.

After twenty four hours have past, unmold your soap loaf and cut into bars. Then set your soap aside on a drying rack or on a wax or parchment paper covered surface to cure. Your soaps will be ready for use in 3-4 weeks and can then be packaged for use or sale.
