WHY REAL SOAP?
From the beginning of time humans have been using real soap. Soap is simple stuff, made from plant oils mixed with lye. Lye is made by pouring water through wood ash. That's it.. All cultures make soap. The great thing about high quality soaps is that they cleanse the hair and skin without stripping natural oils. Real soap is naturally protective and doesn't disturb the natural micro biome of the hair and skin.
Detergent chemicals were developed in the 1930s. Completely different and cheap to make. True for most health food store shampoos as well made with detergents (coco glucoside or decyl glucoside). Detergents strip natural oils so now there is a need for conditioners. Cream conditioners coat hair and scalp impairing natural hair growth and function. Detergents created the need for conditioners because real soap doesn't strip hair and skin. If I use any of these detergent shampoos at the salon I get eczema on my hands - not true with real soap.
There is absolutely no question that quality of hair is monumentally better for all of us using real soap shampoos. Stimulating natural metabolism for faster and thicker hair growth, shinier hair, hair that takes and holds color better, smooth moisturized hair, more colorful hair, healthy scalps.
Nutrient dense coconut oil is the basis of my soaps. And only the best coconut oil, harvested and grown traditionally, sustainably. No cheaper oil blends or citric acid. Coconut has a natural affinity for the skin..naturally anti bacterial, anti lice, anti fungal. For dry hair, for normal hair, for oily hair to balance and nourish.
FERMENTS ARE PROBIOTICS FOR HAIR AND SKIN
Naturally occurring live enzymes and probiotics restore glossy, healthy hair that grows thick and long easily. Healing skin as well. Actually a tincture, flower rinses heal scalp conditions, moisturize hair, stimulate hair growth and leave hair especially shiny.
CULTURED FLOWER HAIR RINSES (LAVENDER, ROSE, HIBISCUS TONIC) are made by culturing/fermenting flowers and herbs. So conditioning, no gooey cream conditioners are needed. Leaving hair feeling very smooth, very shiny and very moisturized. Even curly hair. Amazing for hair that has been colored or chemically processed. A perfect light conditioner for fine hair as it doesn't weigh hair down.
HOW TO HAVE VERY SHINY HAIR
Modern hair is coated. Coated with silicones, plastics, processed proteins from hair products.Even from "organic" heath food store products. Hard water minerals coat hair. Coated hair doesn't shine much, gets dry and frizzy, resists hair color and breaks off easily. CULTURED FLOWER RINSES detox hair and get the coatings off.
CULTURED FLOWER RINSES ARE GENTLE CLEANSERS
If you don't want to shampoo so much CULTURED FLOWER RINSES can be used instead of shampoo to cleanse hair. Perfect after swimming or perspiring to cleanse and neutralize chlorine. The perfect hot weather rinse for hair and skin.
If hair needs more conditioning HEALING HAIR OIL is perfect for the ends of hair or anywhere hair needs extra conditioning and moisture.
Sometimes in the beginning hair will go thru a transitional period as coatings and hard water minerals start to dissolve. Using CULTURED FLOWER RINSES more frequently and in between shampoos will help detox hair faster. Fermented rinses and tonics will always have some brownish sediment on the bottom. These are living formulas. Color will also fade if let in sunlight and over time but will not diminish how well they work. Living cosmetics are meant to be used up so use within 4 months of opening.
