Default Soapnut products

I read Jillipoos thread on mixing products, and followed some links from Beauty Brains blog to this:

http://store.naturoli.com/product.ph...cat=285&page=1

They have a sampler I'm going to buy. I've used soapnut liquid to handwash, but not soapnut soap. I'm going to try it as a shampoo bar and see what happens. Naturoli was supposed to have shapoo specific bars, but I didn't find them.

Apparently soapnuts are naturally antibacterial and anti microbial. Here's a soapnuts blog:

Interesting post on Beaty Brains about the siloxane cone BTW.

The comments section in that post were beyond ridiculous, but the post was interesting.

Soap nuts. Sounds like a yummy snack.

Let us know how the sampler turns out, SBB.

And interesting about 'siloxane, no? The more I read about silicones, the more I'm convinced that most of us are avoiding all of them equally when in fact, they are not created equal at all....

I do remember having a hard time with cyclopentasiloxane making my hair quite lanky and greasy looking pre cg. Perhaps it's a YMMV thing.

I tried soapnut on my hair but didn't find it too good (lots of build up etc), but I use it to wash my towels and underwear.

I've put aritha in my Ayurvedic herb infusion, didn't find it as cleansing as a soap bar. The soap bar, however, is saponified oils with the aritha product added. It should cleanse as well as any of the other bars you use.

Agree on not all cones being equal. The longer I go on this natural hair journey the more open I am. The Loma conditioner I'm using has a cone (down the list) and I love what it does for my hair.
