I am having trouble mixing my sea kelp with the cocamidoproply betaine.  It is just a lump with foam.  Should I whip it together with a hand mixer?  Fold it in by hand?

Thanks

It may be a lump but it should do the job.

I mixed 70% aloe vera gel from trader joes, 30 % sea kelp and dash of surfactant.

I had been using this as facial cleanser but when I was at the gym the other day I did not have any shampoo, I used this mix on my hair and it was fine.

For cleanser, I often mix seakelp, canvas (or other face cream), surfactant of choice (usually Cocamidopropyl betaine) and white willow bark extract.

girlpaint,

i didnt know u could add canvas into cleanser. actually that sounds like a great idea! im a fan of creamy/milky cleansers, and seakelp plus surfactant alone didn't cut it for me. can u let me know ur recipe and how ur cleanser turned out? thanks

Hannah suggested adding canvas to make a creamy cleanser awhile back, because I too prefer them to gel or liquid cleansers (they just seem more gentle to me--I have a problem maintaining skin barrier because of all the acids I use...I think). I tried it and it worked marvelously...and much cheaper than the $25/bottle cleanser I had been using!
