The book keeps it great. It starts off with what a shampoo bar is, why it is good and what makes it different from regular soap. Then the author goes into all the different possible ingredients and explains which one is good for what and why the ingredients are used. This section is very helpful, when the reader tries to create their own recipes.
My only criticism is that the book only uses cold process to make the soap. I would want to know, why hot process is not used. Is it a bad option for shampoo bars, or did the author just focus on cold process for the ease of the reader?
The recipes provided are good and useful. It is a good selection for beginners to see what is possible and work their way up, and for advanced soap makers to still be challenged.
My favorite part of the book was when the author explained the effects of certain oils on the curing time. The author also has a great take on essential oils and their usage.
This book has no recipes for palm oil.
Overall this book is a keeper.

This eBook was very helpful and I especially liked the 'Resources and Ideas' section at the end which included some professional level equipment sites. The length was not too long which I appreciated (as sometimes books that are too long can be redundant with more information than is needed). You can tell the author is speaking from solid experience. The tips for using the bars such as to lather first and then gently apply to hair and opting to use the shampoo bar after washing your hair with apple cider vinegar were informative. Also, I liked the tip on how if you add too much of materials like yucca root and black willow bark in a shampoo bar it could cause tangles in hair. I bought a shampoo bar at a farmers market with additives like those and it did cause tangles in my hair. There are definitely tips for experienced soap-makers in this eBook and it provides the needed information to get a novice started.

This book is excellent. I've been making cold processed soap about 2 years. Good basic info. Why or why not on oils, scents , etc. simple easy to understand. Well written. This is NOT a chemistry handbook. This is for regular people soap makers. I've read a lot of books and on line. I learned some good pointers Well worth it. Enjoy

Great book. As soon as it was downloaded I read it! I have been making cold process for several years but am now really excited about making shampoo bars! The author did a wonderful job explaining the different oils that work best for these special bars. Thanks so much Allan for sharing your recipes! Can't wait to make these!

I was looking for a book that would help expand my skills as an intermediate soap maker. Many other books on the subject are great, but will repeat the same infomation that I already know. This book helped to understand the soapmaking materials even more in depth. I feel confident to make shampoo bars now!

Very well written. The author provides recipes, but also gives you enough information to create recipes of your own design. Highly recommended.

I make my own soap, bath salts and lotions. I was intrigued by bars for shampoo. This book has lots of great ideas for bars based on your hair type. I enjoyed reading through the options. Many of the ingredients are readily available like coconut or olive oil.

I do not make yet any soap bar, but while I wait my ingredients and free time, I try to know everything about soap making. This book is excellent, so much information, so interesting written, and easy to read, special for non-English speaker as me. I found many information helps me in start of making my first shampoo soap.
