Comparing Shampoos, Looking for Advice.


Dread Maintenance

Soapmaking is at its heart, a science. When we add colors and fragrance to the process, we turn the science into an art. Each oil has its own saponification value, or the amount of lye it takes to turn 1 gram of oil into 1 gram of soap. When we make cold process soap, it’s a mathematical formula that looks like this: (Oil Amount) x (SAP value) = Lye Amount needed. For a real example, it looks like this (10 oz. Olive Oil) x (.134) = 1.34 oz. lye. So, it takes 1.34 ounces of lye to turn 10 ounces of Olive Oil into soap. Using the exact amount of lye you need to make the exact amount of soap with nothing left over (no extra oils) is called a 0% superfat or a 0% lye discount.

Many soapmakers like to have some extra oils in their soap that are leftover and not bound to lye. Any extra oil left in the soap and not attacked by the lye is called a ‘superfat.’ The terms ‘superfat’ and ‘lye discount’ can be used interchangeably

taken from here https://www.soapqueen.com/bath-and-body-tutorials/cold-process-soap/superfatting-soap-an-explanation-2/

superfatted simply means more oils re used then are broken down into soaps by the lye

that's why bronners leaves an oily film in hard water

in shampoo 1 this ingredient looks like the most worrisome http://www.truthinskincare.com/2008/01/ingredient-watch-sodium.html

its a preservative that causes severe skin irritation  ..burning eyes reddened skin etc

the 1st 1 to me looks better but if its 'superfatted' it might not be great in hard water

bronners liquid is

2nd is rather conditioning for everyday use

1st might help with hair strength and thickness

both have some ingredients i would investigate individually  and thoroughly

don't ever use crochet on dreads if they fell apart they would redread now the ones you crocheted are extremely damaged, will take 6 months to evenstart to dread and will likely take 3 years to recover

throw the crochet hook in the trash

you just need to be patient let them do what they d..falling apart is part of that process

crochet and dread tools recovery

when i talked to you yesterday i thought you were a guy, but no your 1 of the most beautiful women (inner and outer) I've met! actually your smile is exactly like someone i shoulda married (we lost touch for years but always loved eachother fiercely , then reconnected 3 months after she got married..dammit)

anyway looked at your pics they are certainly crocheted tight!

and stiff

that will make recovery take a fairly longtime however conditioning to loosen them will speed up recovery

if you feel strongly in your heart that you should start over then that's what you should do

lets talk more privately though about it, the little i know about you leads me to think you maybe happier  starting over but i don't know anything about the professional side of you ..or just how black your soles are (and the rest of your spiritual/hippie side)
