Preparation method:
Add the gentle washing base and the Coco-glucoside and Glyceryl oleate to a glass and mix well. Then add the Decyl glucoside and mix slowly, thoroughly. 
In a heat-resistant glass, phase B is prepared: mix the water with the fruit acids and lactic acid, then add the Condisoft emulsifier. Place the glass in a water bath and heat until the emulsifier is completely melted, stirring in the meantime. Remove the beaker from the water bath and allow the solution to cool to body temperature.

Combine the two phases: over the phase A surfactants, add the phase B solution, gradually, in 4-5 steps. Mix slowly and well.
Phase C ingredients are added, stirring after each addition.
The shampoo thus prepared is transferred to the dedicated bottle. The foam will recede the next day. pH: 4,5-5
The color of the shampoo will darken over time, which does not affect its qualities.

The result is a complex shampoo formulated with ingredients that help intensify and maintain the shine of hair, strengthens the hair fiber, contains moisturizing and conditioning substances. It is generally suitable for any hair type.
