I received an organic shampoo bar that contains lye, is it safe to use?
if I use an organic shampoo bar with lye as an ingredient will it damage my natural hair?
Yes, it will because this ingredient is used in relaxers.
Thanks! I thought so. I got it from theorganicloft.com,how can a product with lye be considered organic?
Yea I would probably stay away from that.
Lye is used to make natural soap. You need something with a high pH to turn the oils into soap. Lye has a pH of around 14, so it's perfect for making soap, and is widely used.It goes through a chemical change during the phase called saponification, which is the chemical process that turns oils into soap. If the soap is made properly, there is no lye left in the finished product.
