My Review : Dr. Bronners Magic "All In One " Shikaki Soap :
I used the Lavender Scented One shown in the pic above
My first reactions to this soap was it was strange....It was black or very dark brown and squirts out like water..And to be honest it didnt really lather....I didn't really care for the smell but I smelled the lemongrass and it smell good and I'm looking for their Spearmint- Peppermint one also..
After washing with it twice my hair was so so clean...It felt like I had clarify but my hair was super super soft and it didn't feel stripped like shampoos....I love it!!!
I get the gentle Dr Bronners Soap benefits without having to mix it up with oils and water...This is already mixed up and it saves me a little bit of time ...I also get the benefits of Shikaki without doing all the boiling and mixing powders
Its a keeper ...I liked it a lot...I will use up the bottle of lavender..But I want the lemongrass and spearmint and peppermint Shikaki Soaps..
This is what I will be using now...
