The Ultimate Therapeutic Shampoo Bar must be the best homemade shampoo recipe I’ve ever used. It not only has a delightful aroma that lasts all day long, but it really does revive flat, dull and thinning hair.
Therapeutic Homemade ShampooIt’s suitable for all the family including anyone who may be suffering with a itchy or flaky scalp. It’s full of essential oils aimed to stimulate the memory and lift tension, along with nourishing the scalp and adding a lovely shine to your hair.
This is also a great homemade shampoo bar to take with you when travelling, especially if you intend to fly. You can cut the amount you may need from one of the bars and pop it in with your hand luggage without the worry of carrying liquids.
