Remember my posts about the Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castille Soap that I didn’t want to use as shampoo because it is made from so many natural oils and made my hair feel over-conditioned? WELL…
I stopped using it on my hair around the last time that I mentioned it, and shortly thereafter I had to reapply the artificial color that keeps me from looking every minute of my true age. (I said “minute”…don’t get all you-really-do-look-38, technical!) After that last coloring, I noticed that my hair was much more dry than normal. I conditioned, but it didn’t seem to help. I’m not sold on deep-conditioning just yet…my hair goes limp in seconds, so I never want to over-do it.
And then I remembered that the Dr. Bronner’s made my hair so relaxed. And, seeing as how that is exactly what I was needing, I started using it again. I only had to use it in my hair for about three days and voila – I’m back to normal. Still using the Apple Cider Vinegar as “conditioner.” The jury is out on its direct impact, though. I’m going to implement a self-study comparison between that and regular conditioner over the next couple of weeks.
Just had to put in a plug for the Castille Soap. It has some very redeeming qualities.
