Shampoo für Sams

Ungelesener Beitrag von artimetics »

Sorry for having to write this in english! Feel free to answer in German :)

They say shampoo is a very simple formula - my first try came out too slimy (too much xanthan/glycerin?) and it brings a lot of hair static. So much hair static that lasted 2 whole days. :irre:

So two questions:
1) Can i "save" that shampoo by adding 2% oil now, after its fully mixed? Will this add the moisture to cancel that static?
2) Should I use a combination of less glycerin/xanthan + a little salt to make it less slimy? Are there published charts of surfactants/xanthan ratio?

I'm using Surfalux, Coco Glucoside, Decyl Glucoside.

Thanks so much for your time and help!

it would be always better to have your whole formulation with percentages of the ingredients to give any advice.
I personally would not add any ingredients at a later stage to an already finished product - you could also add unwanted contamination; if you don’t like it for your hair, use it under the shower.
Normally conditioning ingredients reduce hair static’s.
Here a list with chemicals.
Very often Cetrimonium Chloride is used.
And a little information about thickeners.
Good luck,
