Is it just me or does Dr Bronner's leave anyone else's hair feeling almost sticky?Maybe I have hard water and that's why. But does anyone else have this issue?

I use Dr. Bronner's too, but I've never noticed a sticky residue. It could be your water or dirty pipes of something. I used to have a similar issue when I was using Dove soap in my hair, but my hair's felt squeeky clean since using Dr. B's. I don't dilute it, though. should I be?

It's the hard water. I live in southern California and we have insanely hard water around here. No matter how much I dilute it, it seems to leave a nasty almost sticky/tacky residue. Never seemed to wash clean. Now, I never had that problem with using it on my body, but always on my hair.

Dilution is a matter of preference. The bottle will last you ten times longer if you dilute it though. Jammin' Jay said:

My hair is fine but I have alot of it and Dr.Bonners doesn't work for me, it leaves a residue. I like Natures Garden.

Yup it was definitely the water. The exact same thing happened to me..at first I though it was my scalp that was oily then I switched to the BS/ACV and it was completely clean in 2 washes

I have the same problem but SE had mentioned adding Borax and last night I found a recipe for just that addition....2 oz. Dr. B's, 1/2 cup hot water, 1/4 tsp. Borax and if you like add. 1 tbsp. of acv and 10 drops essential oil. I have noticed that everytime I use acv my hair feels amazing but it takes out my progress! The Borax should help with the hard water problem.
