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.
Heated phase (66%)
8% sodium cocoyl isethionate, 8g
8% decyl glucoside, 8g
Cool-down phase (10%)
Options once completely cool:
Method (using a liquid thickener, e.g. crothix)
Note: you cannot use xanthan gum in this recipe. For an alternative recipe that allows for xanthan gum please get the Shampoo Course book or Ingredients List.

Grams are English measurements. Unfortunately, now that we have moved into proper science you can't use lbs and oz etc. They are too inaccurate. Grams are easy to learn though.
