Heloo.... I have a question. Can We make shampoo with two methods (lye and surfactant) simultaneously?

    You can make a shampoo with a surfactant (e.g. sodium lauryl sulfate) and a small amount of lye (e.g. sodium hydroxide) to adjust pH.

    But if you are wondering if you can make a good shampoo out of a soap, the answer is no.
