Do you have any dandruff/psoriasis issues? That was the reason I was trying the Dr. Bronner's. I have tried to baking soda and vinegar in the past. Do you use the vinegar? I always thought my hair smelled like wet dog when I used the vinegar, but it felts awesome.
No I haven't ever used the vinegar actually. I do deep condition my hair over night with coconut oil though, a few times a week. yes I have scalp issues. I'm not sure what it is really. I don't think it's psoriasis as I don't have big red patches underneath the flakes. It's kind of like really, really dry skin which flakes off if I scratch it. The more I scratch it the worse it gets. But it has improved since I stopped using regular shampoo. It's odd because my skin isn't dry anywhere else.
I think soap just works perfectly well to wash some kinds of hair and not others. It doesn't work for me - sticky residue, yuck. I head to the health food shop and buy the mildest natural shampoo I can find, usually one that's sold especially for sensitive skin. I also use a cider vinegar + lavender oil rinse; the smell goes away completely once my hair dries.
One of the 'weird bonuses' of Primal is less oiliness. Hooray.
I have also tried Dr. Bronner's liquid soap on my hair.. did not like the way my hair felt. I was using some Alba shampoo before that, it was good. I still use Dr. Bronner's liquid soap for body wash.
Do any of you dilute the soap?
If you have psoriasis, I highly reccomend you look into Daily treatment shampoo by Joico. It used to be called "bijoba". I have had scalp psoriasis for 38years and NOTHING has worked as well as the Joico product. Most beauty supply stores have it and a lot of salons carry it too.
Dr. Bronner's works well as a body soap, but not so well as a shampoo.
