If your shampoo is too thin there are two ways you can thicken it.
I used to use xanthan gum but it can be hard to work with so I upgraded to crothix.
Your shampoo should have a pH between 5.5 and 6.0. To achieve this use citric acid. Add 0.5% (0.5g for a 100g recipe) at a time until you reach your desired pH. Citric acid is very widely available because it's used commercially to adjust the pH of food and cosmetics.
