Woohoo! Check out this new e-book on one of Susan's favorite topics – hair care products! It's 74 pages, almost 25,000 words, with 21 formulas for hair care products, like solid shampoo bars, solid conditioner bars, and liquid conditioners.

Deep dive into 16 actives and botanical extracts – including a much requested deep dive into broccoli seed oil – and see how we can use them in our already pretty awesome hair care products to make them even more amazing.

We’re customizing shampoo bars, conditioner bars, rinse-off conditioners, and leave-in conditioners for all kinds of hair types – volumizing for fine hair, cleansing or rinse-off for curly or textured hair, leave-in for colored hair, moisturizing for dry hair, and strengthening and reinforcing for damaged hair – with these awesome actives and botanical extracts to help your hair be more bouncin’ and behavin’.

And we’re looking at how to make substitutions in solid and liquid products in existing formulas you already love.

About the author

Susan Barclay Nichols lives in the Fraser Valley, B.C., Canada.  She stumbled upon a recipe for bath bombs and became obsessed with creating bath and body products. This is when her extreme interest in chemistry began. 

In 2009, she started Point of Interest, a bath and body products blog to share her love of creating products. Her favorite hobbies – other than creating bath and body products – include sewing, trivia, criticizing and correcting people’s grammar and spelling, and striving to achieve expert status on bass in Rock Band 3. She lives with her wonderful husband, Raymond and their adorable dog, Sasja.

Because of the downloadable nature of this product, e-zines and e-books are final sale, and therefore not eligible for a refund.
