I think I made DW

I noticed when I added honeyquat to my watered down AVG, it turned it very thin...like water.
(I've read honeyquat is a strong humectant, but I really didn't notice any change in my hair)

Anyway, I rebatched some goatmilk soap:
4 bars soap shredded and melted. Took off heat and added 1/4c shealoe. Then added 1/4c honeyquat.
It thinned alot. So, I beat it with my hand mixer and scraped it into a mold.
I set it in the freeze...it was still soft. So I scraped it into a container with a lid.
Today, it's the same consistency...like play-dough.

I made "Dairy Whip"??????

I did mold some into a ball and set it to "cure"...just to see if it ever does harden. I'm pretty sure it's the honeyquat that gave it that softer consistency.
I figured adding shealoe and honeyquat would only enhance a shampoo bar and my hair is really soft after using it today, (vinegar rinse and AVG after)

Maybe I'll make Summer Sunshine "DW" ;)

    So far, the soap is still pretty soft...and so is my hair!
    I was reading the honeyquat technical data sheet:
    http://www.archchemicals.com/Fed/PC/Products/NaturalPlant/Honeyquat50.htm
    On the last page, it says there may be a slight loss of viscosity, so to balance it out by using more resin......

    or not, to make soft soap!

    Mixed in with AVG, I really couldn't tell a difference in my hair. I don't know if it was the honeyquat or shea loe added to the soap that made my hair softer...maybe both.
