Hi, Dear Friend! Hope your Fine.

Shampoo is a cleaning substance that is widely used as a personal care for washing hair.
 
   Shampoo is composed primarily of chemicals called surfactants that can easily wash away oily materials on surfaces with the aid of water. Many shampoo contains pearlising ingredients which add sparkles, colour, and fragrance to the product that leaves hair shinning and smelling nice.                                                                                 

   Prior to popular belief, shampoo is not only associated with females, men also uses shampoo as well as kids and domestic animals like, cats and dogs. This have return to the continuous increase in demand for the product in the market place and this is a business opportunity you do not want to slip pass you.


   Before now, people typically used ordinary soap for their personal hair care but soap wasn't that effective and it causes a lot of irritation to the eyes and hair and does not go well with hard water. But with shampoo, washing of hair is easy and it leaves one hair feeling more cleaned and conditioned.


   Now let's get down to the serious business of starting your own shampoo hair care production business..


CONDUCT A FEASIBILITY STUDY:
A feasibility study is like carrying out a research work on the business at hand which will enable you see/know your business goals, competitors in the market, your target buyers, operational costs, the whole nine yards. Feasibility study will also give you first hand information about your proposed business and everything there is to know.


REGISTER YOUR BUSINESS

If you are going to start this business from home its understandable if you are not in a hurry to engage in any form of registration, but if you intend to take your business to another level and I mean a successful level then it's best to obtain the necessary permits/approval to enable you register your business.

   NOTE: These materials/ingredients are your everyday items that are available in the local market.


LEARN THE PRODUCTION PROCESS:

Let me quickly say here that it depends on what you know you can do as an individual, all I am trying to say is that some persons can quickly/easily learn the whole process of making shampoo by simply reading and following the procedures while others needs physical tutoring and supervision to get everything. In any case, let's go through the production process here. So let's make some shampoo:

i, put on the goggle and the gloves for safety precaution


ii, mix the olive oil, coconut oil, and vegetable shortening together in the stainless pot or pan and warm the oils


iii, in a separate container mix the sodium hydroxide(lye) with the pint water-----this will produce heat so be careful


iv, take the warm oils with the lye solution separately and place on top a sink or big bowl full with water and allow to cool off at the same time/temperature

v, after the oils and lye is cool enough, add the lye solution into the oil


vi, wait for the mixture to become creamy then add the glycerine, alcohol, castor oil and colourants and any other natural wax from glycol distearate.

vii, if the shampoo looks thick you can add more water to it till you are satisfy with its texture. Your shampoo is ready, start bottling and package for sale.


START UP CAPITAL:
Let me quickly give you a break down of the capital;
purchase of ingredients/materials will cost roughly............................................#30,000
purchase of plastic bottles and printed labels  .....................................................#10,000
registration of business--................. 
#15,000
other miscellaneous expenses. ...........
#5,000
Total capital  =..................................#60,000
 That is about    ..................................$200   
                       
   With the fluctuation of prices in today's economy, it is advisable to have like #100,000 which is about $350 at hand in other not to be caught by any surprises.


BRANDING/PACKAGING:
The right brand and package matters a whole lot in this business, if you intend for your products to stand the test of time, ensure they are packaged and well sealed in plastic bottles. You can also get a print out stickers containing your business logo, name and location placed on the body of each packaged bottles, this will ensure that buyers identify with your product easily.


MARKETING AND SALES:
Getting into the main market stream with your new shampoo hair care product might not be easy just so you know, but if you are innovative and dedicated to marketing your products through the different means out there then there is a fat chance you will cut your own market share sooner than expected.

    
 Never limit yourself, you can achieve a great deal of success with your shampoo product, just continue working hard and no doubt you will have a successful business within the shortest possible time.
