Dr. Bronners leaves a residue in my hair no matter how long i rinse

i took a shower and i diluted dr bronners organic castile soap peppermint (the way i normally do, the correct way) and no matter how long i rinsed i still felt this "slimy / oily" in my hair

and i only washed the scalp, not the "dread" part


has anyone else had the same reaction to it?





(from then on i started washing my hair with baking soda and now its business as usual.)

ard water (or is it soft?) causes tat..any true soap will do tat detergents rince better, if you add borax to broinners it will fix tat

try rincing wit spring water just to be sure but im sure its te warters fault
i dont know how to determine if the water is hard or soft

and i live in the middle of the city so spring water is hard to find cuz i dont drive

what is borax?

next time i wash i will try to add baking soda onto my hair when i wash with bronners to see if that helps

i had that goopy oily crap also i stoped using dr bonners i just use acv nowdays
where do you get borax?
most stores carry it. It's in with the laundry stuff.

I also had the weird residue from Bronners. I live in Florida which is known for having very good water-in fact drinking from my sink is a lot cleaner then drinking water from a water bottle. I think some hair just doesn't accept Dr. Bronner's as well.

I just switched to Dr. Bonner's peppermint bar soap and it's worked pretty well. But I still occasionally get the weird oily feeling, no matter what I use (like Bronners baking soda regular shampoo)

IllumiKnotty said:

3 tablespoons of vinegar or lemon juice to 1 cup of water used as a rinse after shampooing should remove all traces of oilyness. Roxanne has been researching this because she has the same problem with Dr. Bonners
okay thanks! does it matter what kind of vinegar?
We use apple cider vinegar but any will work

uhoh...... Im using dr. Bronners i havnt really noticed anything weird though i would go as far as to say i like the way my hair feels after i use it.
