This recipe is for a moisturizing and conditioning shampoo that will be great for dry hair. If you have oily hair then I have several recipes for oily hair in my DIY Shampoo Recipes Book.
This recipe has a very high dose of glycerin to really juice up the moisture factor. Of all my shampoos in the tutorial series, this is my favourite; it works very well on my hair. Note that I would not have this much glycerin in a leave-in product.
