Marie Knows Her Shampoo

Lauren Robinson

Thanks, Marie. You are informative and knowledgeable. The information you provided will be a good starting place as I attempt my first shampoo bar. Finding the cheat sheet wasn't intuitive; that could be improved upon.

Marie's Shampoo Bar Workshop was everything and more than I expected. I am not a "formulator" but her charts and explanations made me feel more than comfortable about being able to create my own shampoo bar formula, although the formulas she shares in her videos are great! I also appreciate the Cheat Sheet she provided. The resources and notes are invaluable! I will refer back to them often. Thank you!

I have played with many formulations. However, I never completely understood the significance of what each ingredient brings to the table. Marie makes this fun and informative and talks in a way that Everyone gets a full understanding of what, and how to make this your own. The explanations and thorough dive into ingredients, simplifying them to everyone's level of understanding is priceless. The trouble shooting section really helps to show you how to fix any problem and formulate for particular hair types to make it perfect for anybody's individual hair type. I was so very impressed and am looking forward to Marie's next offering in the workshop area. Great Job Marie, I am so thankful for you, and I appreciate you more than you can know. You truly make this a "Happy Making" Project. Thank you again, Carol

I thoroughly enjoyed this course, particularly for its beginner-friendly approach. The provided information was instrumental in conveying that what we covered is merely the tip of the iceberg in terms of possibilities. The inclusion of shampoo recipes has elevated the course, providing a comprehensive and well-rounded learning experience. Having these recipes at hand establishes a solid foundation for experimentation, and I find that aspect truly valuable. The insightful commentary on individual products further contributed to my education, offering valuable insights into their properties. I appreciate the effort put into providing such a well-rounded and informative experience.
