I love this shampoo bar and can't wait to try the other ones that I have made.
I do use a vinegar rinse once about every 7 days with my shampoo bar.
To make a vinegar rinse add 1 tablespoon of vinegar (I use cider) to 16 onuces of water
Shampoo hair as normal, rise with water then rinse with vinegar rinse.
Here's some info on shikakai, amla and reetha
Shikakai is a natural herbal powder derived from the fruit of the Acacia Concinna tree. It has been used for centuries as a hair cleanser. Because of its amazing benefits for the hair the name Shikakai literally means fruit for the hair. It is extremely mild and has a natural low pH. It is an excellent natural hair cleanser and astringent and also acts as a natural detangler. Used as a hair wash in lieu of soaps & shampoos, it promotes lustrous hair growth, removes dandruff and strengthens hair roots
Amla is a natural herbal powder derived from the fruit of the Emblica Officinalis tree. This fruit has the highest content of naturally occuring vitamin C and is used in a number of Ayurvedic medicines. It is a natural anti-oxidant and in powder form is great for topical application to the hair and skin. It is an excellent natural hair conditioner. Stops falling of hair and premature graying and strengthens hair roots. Removes Dandruff and promotes long, lustrous and healthy hair. Amla's benefits for hair cause it to be used in many herbal shampoos, oils and hair loss creams.
Reetha, the Soap nut tree, grows abundantly in India. Its fruit has been used for cleaning hair, body and clothes since ancient times. Soap nuts are 100% natural and contain no chemical additives, making them a great choice for anyone with sensitive skin. They work like soap because their shell contains a substance called "saponin" which is released when it comes in contact with warm water. The inner seed is hard and black and contains no saponin.
