WHY IS MY HAIR SO DRY?
From the beginning of time humans have been using real soap. All cultures make soap. Soap is simple stuff, made from plant oils or animal fats mixed with lye. Lye is made from wood ash. That's it. High quality soaps cleanse the hair and skin without stripping natural oils. Real soap is naturally protective.
There is absolutely no question that quality of hair is monumentally better for all of us using real soap shampoos. Real soap shampoos stimulate natural metabolism for faster, thicker hair growth, shinier hair, smooth moisturized hair, more colorful hair and healthy scalps. Most dandruff is a reaction to detergent chemicals. Even hair dyes work so much better on hair that isn’t coated or dry from detergents. Products that dry out and coat hair and scalp interfere with healthy function and hair growth.
What is the difference between soap and detergent?
Detergent chemicals were developed in the 1930s from petroleum. Cheap to make. “Organic” shampoos are also made with detergents like cocoglucoside or decylglucoside. Detergents strip natural oils that create a need for conditioners and endless hair products.
Remember, any products that you use on your hair go all over your skin in the shower. If I use any detergent shampoos I get eczema and dry itchy scalp and skin.
