A formula for those customers who have a hard time switching to our castile shampoo because of chemicals and for those who get a build up on their hair. Safe for color-treated hair.
This shampoo is made from decyl-polyglucoside—the first 'natural surfactant'
Works well to remove buildup and the chemicals from scalp and hair that has built up from use of commercial shampoos.
From a customer:
Hi, You said you wanted feed back on this item. well I got it! I was having alot of problems starting with the castile shampoo, so you sent me some of this. I finally got the courage to use it and I am so glad that I did. I was afraid I would never be able to switch to your shampoos, but I used most of the bottle with a little conditioner afterward. It left my hair a little more dry than usual but now I started using the regular castile soap and my hair is nice and soft again. So I would say this stuff is FANTASTIC!!!!!! My hair is a little past my shoulders if you were wondering! Thank You so much!! God Bless!!
Wonderful, truly toxin free products. Our castile soaps are made the old-fashioned way. Our products will not strip color from color-treated hair.
Read this before starting our Castile Shampoos or other natural products:
Switching from commercial shampoo to natural castile requires an adjustment period and a change of habits to get the best results. Going toxin-free and all natural also requires a change in expectations.
Lather is a petroleum chemical creation. Nothing in nature lathers like shampoo or chemical detergents. In ages past, people used soapwort or yucca root. These foam some with little bubbles, but there is nothing in nature like chemical lather.
Castile soaps, soapwort or yucca root are not drying like the chemical lather. Which is why you will not need conditioner with our soaps. Castile soaps made with coconut oil and tallow foam better, but vegan customers do not want anything made with animal products.
It is common that your hair may initially feel heavy, greasy, or oily when first using our Castile Shampoos for a couple times, a few days or a week or more. Don't Panic! Your scalp is going through a detoxification process and/or, you are using conditioner when you should not be. Read the HAIR TIPS for encouragement, too.
All the information I would give you by phone or email is here!!!
Information on VINEGAR RINSE is here also!
Time is what your scalp and hair need to get cleared of the toxins that you have been using all your life. The vinegar rinse and brushing your hair daily also speed the toxin removal–yes, really. Both are vital to a healthy scalp. I continue to use vinegar full strength; I rarely use soap on my head anymore–after 12 years there are no more toxins.
Feel free to print this information out for yourself or to encourage others.
A note about our Unscented Shampoo:
Customers have asked about having essential oils in the Unscented shampoo. There is .02% of Lavender and .02% of Rosemary Essential Oils. This small amount helps to offset the smell of some of the other ingredients. The small amount also helps to preserve the soap–otherwise after about 3 months it smells off–it is not spoiled, just smells odd. I have no plans to stop putting this amount of the oils in our Shampoo.
Thank you for understanding.
Wondering how that commercial shampoo is made?
Take a look at the Surfactant Chemistry page
It is a simple, easy to understand explanation. Are you aware of the chemicals used? How many of these chemicals can cause cancer? What are you using on your precious children? How long can they handle the chemical overload? What damage is those chemicals doing to our environment?
