Making shampoo, and conditioner is easier than it sounds! Follow these instructions and realize how easy and amazing these products are for your hair.


  • 2.3 grams of Solanum AX
  • 5 grams of Vegetable Glycerine
  • 5 grams of Coco-Glucoside and Glyceryl Oleate
  • 5 grams of Natra Prep Pea (pea extract)
  • 1 gram of essential oil (we suggest mint or peppermint)
  • 1 gram of honey
  • 1 gram of melted beeswax
  • 1.5 grams of Geogard Ultra
  • 1 gram of panthenol powder (vitamin b5)
  • 24 grams of Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside
  • 15 grams Cocamidopropyl Betaine
  • 40.2 grams of distilled water
  • Scale
  • Beaker
  • Wisk
  • Shampoo bottle
  • Ph meter

Weigh the Solagum AX, glycerin, Lamesoft PO 65, pea extract, essential oil, Geogard Ultra, melted beeswax, honey, and panthenol (Vitamin B5) into a beaker and whisk/stir thoroughly to combine. Be sure the Solagum AX is very thoroughly distributed.

Add the Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside and Cocamidopropyl Betaine. Stir slowly to combine. Mix well.

Gently add the water, pouring it over your stirring implement to break its fall. Gently stir the shampoo every 3 minutes for about 20 minutes. This helps the Solagum AX hydrate evenly rather than settling to the bottom and fusing into a solid lump that has to be aggressively stirred later on to incorporate.

Cover the shampoo, leaving the Solagum AX to fully hydrate and the Geogard Ultra to dissolve for about 2-3 hours.

Once everything has hydrated and dissolved, give the shampoo a stir to make sure everything is mixed well.

To test and adjust the pH create a 10% dilution by weighing 2g product and 18g distilled water into a small bowl or beaker and whisk to combine. Check the pH with your pH meter. Depending on the shape of your bowl/beaker you may need to tilt it to fully submerge the sensor on your pH meter. The pH should fall around 4.5. Aim for a range of 4–6 for hair health.

When the pH level is right you can add the shampoo to the bottle and use it.

Warning: If you have had the shampoo for a long period of time, look out for a smell, mold, discolor, or texture. If you see or smell this, please discard.
