I was soooo excited to buy my first bottle of dr bronners, I bought peppermint with the intention of using it for shampoo
However, i found it lathered amazingly well then quickly got all dried up to where i couldnt lather at all
The next morning my hair was exceptionally oily, as if I hadnt washed it
is this normal? will my hair adjust?
I normally use jason's brand organics and i followed dr. bronners with avalon organic conditioner this time
used again today and had the same oily greasy feeling, and my scalp was flaking like crazy to the point where i had to re-wash it with the jason's organic, looks like Ill need to find another use other than shampoo
The reason it doesn't work well for shampoo, is because it's SOAP, unlike commercial shampoos, which are not. Soap leaves a residue, which is why your hair seemed oily afterwards. That was the soap residue, not oil. Apparently, rinsing with apple cider vinegar will remedy this problem, but I've never tried it. I'm on the hunt for a natural homemade shampoo that doesn't require either castile soap, or settling for the baking soda solution. Let me know if you have the magic answer to this!!
Thank you! i thought it could be used as shampoo, oh well
lol omg Adaline's Mama so funny you mentioned that, im a down there shaver and i did and washed thinking, it will be minty now! lol I cant believe I did that!!!! ouch!!!!!
I ordered their whole kernel coconut oil to try, heard so much about coconut oil and never seen it local and their peppermint lip balm
