Dr Bronners Castile Soap

23 July 2016

So, I was watching one of my favourite Youtubers SunKissAlba and I noticed in one of her videos she used Dr. Bronners Castile Soap as a clarifier and I was intrigued. So when I was shopping in Holland and Barrets and saw Dr Bronners, I didn't hesitate to buy it.
I picked up a large bottle of Organic Peppermint Castile Liquid Soap, which is said to be their most sought after product. Not only is the product 100% natural but the bottles are post-consumer recycled bottles too.
Having a look on google there are tones of  things you can use it for: shampoo, wash your floors, wash your dog, washing fruit, laundry detergent and early bottles even suggested using it to douche with creating a natural vaginal spermicide to stop unwanted pregnancies. Crazy huh!
A few days later wash day fell upon me, and I decided to use my new product. If a clarifier is meant to rid the hair of excess oil, it did the job. My hair felt extremely clean and the peppermint left it feeling fresh. I then used a deep conditioner to instal some much-needed moisture back into my hair.
Curly hair is prone to dryness because the oil doesn't slip down the hair shaft as easily as it would for straight hair. And with dryness comes frizz and split ends, so after a clarifying wash you ALWAYS, ALWAYS need a good deep conditioner.
Having a look at Dr. Bronners website, they recommend using afterward the Citrus Conditioning Hair Rinse. Which I've bought to experiment with. I got a bit toooooo happy and also bought:
  • 1 x Citrus Conditioning Hair Rinse (236 ml)
  • 1 x Lemon Lime Organic Lip Balm (4 g)
  • 1 x Organic Orange Lavender Lotion (236 ml)
  • 1 x Peppermint Leave-In Hair Conditioner (178 ml)
  • 1 x Organic Almond Castile Liquid Soap (237ml)
  • 1 x Cinnamon All-One Toothpaste
Surprisingly it only cost me £37 which, in my opinion, isn't a lot! So ill be sure to see how all those natural goodies go. Have you used Dr. Bronners before? Any tips or tricks? Let me know.

  1. Currently I’ve got this in the 944ml bottle in my bathroom, I use it for everything – I don’t brush my teeth with it but I might include it as I normally use bicarbonate soda & charcoal ( I spend way too much time in the bathroom D.I.Y.ing) but last Summer, I was washing in the shower and boy did it tingle the kitty LOL! Very refreshing product.

    I love the tingling / cooling sensation especially in Summer (on my body – mind) the cooling and cleanliness on my scalp. I’ve tried the citrus & the unscented one (used that for my brushes) oh and the Eucalyptus. I purchase the large ones because they last me most of the year. I probably buy maybe 2 a year if that. I was on the site a few months back and saw they had so many other products. I see a SunKissAlba’s video on using natural products and how it’s not expensive as people think if you shop consciously and it’s true. I’ve eliminated products but using multi-use items. I might get the cinnamon toothpaste as I use cinnamon clove mouthwash & it’s really good.
