    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 occasionally use Dr. Bronner's soap for shampoo, but generally I don't like the results. My hair feels...icky and looks really bad/limp/lifeless

        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?

            It's alkaline. Very much so. If you have hard water, you will get buildup.

            www.naturallycurly.com has a forum with a megaton of information on natural hair care, including terressentials and homemade recipes. Highly recommend it.

              Try the soap made by Vanacream. You can use it on your body and hair and I have had no issues with sticky hair or anything.

                I use any decent bath soap and they work fine. I'm looking at some that is 100% olive oil. Expect as good or better results with that.

                  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.

                      It can work as shampoo, but it needs to be severely diluted.

                            I love it but you are correct...it needs to be very dilute. I use it on my body and diluted on my primalpup but not on my thick, natural curl. Good topic and I appreciate the link to the vit D info!
