I really wanted to make my own shampoo. It just seemed like such a great way to save money AND control the ingredients in my shampoo. I tried a few different recipes, including a couple from one of my favorite blogs/go-to resources for all-things-DIY-bath-and-beauty. But DIY shampoo just didn’t work for me.
The recipes I tried used basic ingredients. I didn’t want to have to buy anything “weird” or end up with a boat load of an ingredient because a shampoo recipe called for a tiny bit. So maybe I would have had better success if I had been willing to expand my ingredient criteria. But aside from saving money and controlling the ingredients, I also wanted it to be easy.
I don’t like DIY recipes that aren’t easy.
