Tips for Thickening the Shampoo-

  • Add in arrowroot powder or cornstarch to naturally thicken your shampoo. Start with a 1/2 of a teaspoon and add more until the desired thickness is reached. 
  • Oat flour can be used to thicken homemade shampoo. Make your own oat flour by blending up oatmeal in a blender until it has the consistency of flour. Add a small amount to your shampoo and shake well to incorporate. 
  • Add one tablespoon of baking soda to the shampoo and mix well. 
  • Vegetable glycerin can help to thicken shampoo and add lather. Start with 1 teaspoon and add more until the desired texture is met.
