How People Used to Make Shampoo With Soap

We didn't always go to the store to buy ourselves shampoo and conditioner. In fact, hair conditioner was invented and presented in 1900, and it was originally used to soften men's beards and mustaches. Shampoos similar to what we buy today didn't start appearing until the early 1900s. So, what did most people use to wash their hair? Soap.

Turning Soap Into Hair Wash

Turning soap into shampoo is a simple process. You will need:

  • 1/2 bar natural soap
  • 1 pint water


The soap you use must be homemade lye soap. Store soaps are loaded with chemicals and scents.

Put water in glass or enamel pan. Shave the soap into the water. Gently heat and stir until soap is dissolved. Remove from heat, cool, and store in bottle.
