Jear Desus... The things we do for love. So my GF has very fine, wavy, frizzy hair and she is horribly frustrated with it. I am a soapmaker, BUT I am apparantly ALSO a masochist. Why do you ask? Well... I MAY have volunteered myself for making shampoo... I don't want to use those syndets though. My theororetical plan is that I should take my normal soap formulation (I'm talking fats here) and run it through soapcalc for 0% SF and calculate how much KOH I need... Make up my KOH solution with my normal ridiculous amount of silk added to it. Use my normal HTFHP method BUT substitute my sugar for glycerin, and skip my normal SL additive. Then post cook add in a 8-10% SF mix of SOMETHING... (Jojoba and Tocopheryl acetate, and olive oil? I dunno...) and something that smells like her normal scent choices. Dump it in a bucket add in my distilled water, cover, and rot it for some heretofore undetermined amount of time. Stir it up, dilute as required, test it on my own widdle noggin. IF all goes well, bottle it up, put a bow on it and hand it over with a lacivious grin.... How close to approximately correct am I? Halp!

Does anyone create surfactant based products? If you sell, are customers put off by the ingredients? Also, do you think ingredients like herbal extracts, hydrosols, hydrolyzed proteins, etc. really add anything to products or is it really label appeal?
