Make your own natural soap

For years I had the desire to make my own natural soap. A natural soapbar to wash your hair or a soapbar to use in the shower. Finaly Werfzeep (a dutch company who makes natural soapbars) made last year a soap book and my dreams & wishes seemed to be fulfilled. Immediately I ordered the soap book including a starter package. When the soap book was finished I immediately received it home with my starter pack, but I did not start immediately. I was busy with my work and the natural hair treatments, so the starter pack was left untouched for quit some time. Until a few weeks ago! You know, corona happend and finally I had some time and enough courage to make my first soapbar. The night before I wanted to start, I had already written down some ideas and the next day I immediately started working. I made my first soapbar with Neem, Thyme, Nettle extract and Broccoli seed oil. Making my own soap was so much fun! I loved it! The whole process was a bit new to me, but I really liked it. Especially when my soap was in the mold and I had to put it away for a day. Because I would like to share my enthusiasm with you, I will share the recipe below. This is a soapbar to wash your hair, but also to use in the shower or washing your hands. The ingredients are really good against irritated or troubled (scalp) skin, flakes or dandruff, eczema or psoriasis and they nourish & moisturize your hair.

Samol Herbal Hair and Scalp Oil

Since a few weeks I am trying out a herbal Hair and Scalp oil from Samol. I was never a really big fan from mixed oils. I always told my clients to buy a pure oil from just one kind and always look at the ingredients, because then you are really sure that you get what you want. Often I got disappointed when I wanted to buy a new natural oil. Even with jojoba oil. Instead that it is all jojoba oil, they add a lot of other cheap oils and just a tiny little bit of jojoba oil. And don’t get me started about those commercial oils. Those contain often a lot of sillicones. So you can probably gues what I thought when a client told me that she used a mixed oil brand from England. I was a bit skeptical. But this all changed when I looked at the ingredients with her. Finally a mixed oil brand that made me happy. Why? Because the Ayurvedic hair herbs were also incorporated. And I know these herbs! I know that they are very healing and they can cure your skin and scalp. I received a bottle of Hair and Scalp oil from Samol and now after a few weeks of trying out, I can say that I love it! How is that possible? Read on and take a look at the ingredients. I think, after reading the ingredients, you will be just as enthusiastic about this Hair and Scalp oil as I am.

Oatmeal gel

Maybe you have seen it on my Instagram or Facebook page, because lately I am experimenting with a new kind of natural gel for my hair. Which gel? Well, oatmeal gel! I came across this new kind of natural gel on a Instagram page of a curly girl that I follow. I was immediatly very interested and enthusiastic. I am always looking for new natural hair products, so maybe you can imagine that I was very happy to find out about this natural hair gel. What kind of hair gel is this and what would it do for my hair? At that same time I also got a bit nervous. Offcourse I want to try this new gel, but my normal hair routine was also fine and I always had good results with the flaxseed gel. Sometimes I used Aloe vera gel, and that was also fine. But now I was at the point that I wanted to try something else, something that I did not know. I asked myself if I was prepared for a bad washday, and yes; I was. It is only your hair. My curiosity won, so I started reading and experimenting. After a few times experimenting I created the best recipe for my hair, and hopefully also for your hair. In this blog I will share two recipes, one with oatmeal and one with oatflakes.
