If you’re looking for a natural way to nourish your hair, consider making your own goat’s milk shampoo bar with jojoba. This simple, DIY recipe uses natural ingredients to create a luxurious shampoo bar that will leave your hair feeling soft, shiny and oh-so-healthy.
Goat’s milk is rich in vitamins and minerals, and contains fatty acids which help to nourish, hydrate, and protect the hair shaft. Jojoba oil is a natural oil that closely resembles the natural oils found in human hair, which helps to strengthen, condition, and protect the hair shaft. Together, these two ingredients create a shampoo bar that will leave your hair feeling nourished and looking beautiful.
To get started, you’ll need to gather the following ingredients:
– 5 ounces of unrefined, cold-pressed jojoba oil
– 5 ounces of liquid goat’s milk
– 10 ounces of lye (sodium hydroxide)
– 2 ounces of your favorite essential oil (optional)
Once you’ve gathered all the ingredients, it’s time to start making your shampoo bar. Begin by combining the liquid goat’s milk and lye in a large bowl, stirring continuously until the lye has completely dissolved. Once the lye has dissolved, add the jojoba oil and stir until the ingredients are fully combined. If desired, you can also add a few drops of your favorite essential oil for scent.
Once the ingredients are fully combined, pour the mixture into a lined mold and let it sit for 24 hours. After 24 hours, remove the shampoo bar from the mold and allow it to cure for an additional 4-6 weeks. Once the bar has cured, it is ready to use!
To use your shampoo bar, wet your hair and then lather the bar onto your scalp, working it into a lather with your fingertips. Rinse thoroughly and repeat as needed.
Using a goat’s milk shampoo bar with jojoba is an excellent way to nourish and protect your hair. The combination of goat’s milk and jojoba oil helps to strengthen, hydrate, and protect the hair shaft, leaving your hair feeling soft, shiny, and healthy. And the best part is, you can make it right in the comfort of your own home!
