Confessions of a Loc’d Goddess: Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap Review!



I recently received a bar of Dr. Bronner’s castille soap (the lavendar scented one) from Target.  I wanted to try Dr. Bronner’s on my hair, because I had heard that it was great at cleansing your hair and getting the dirt and grime out of your locs.  I have used it twice so far, and I must say it works GREAT in my opinion!

I really needed something that would deeply cleanse my locs, since I do not wash my hair weekly anymore.  I also go to the gym regularly, and it became tedious to wash my hair every week, just for it to be sweaty again the next week.  For that reason, I decided to space out my washes so I don’t have to go through the entire washing process every single week (I rinse my hair out now more frequently than washing it).

This was my first time actually washing my hair with a bar of soap, as opposed to liquid soap and I actually liked washing with a bar rather than liquid.  I felt like I could control the product more, and I didn’t have to use it as much as I would have to use liquid in order to get my whole head lathered up.

When I washed my hair, I conducted a bit of an experiment, so that I could see exactly how much dirty came out of my hair when I washed.  I filled the tub up so that as I was washing my hair I could see what came out of it.  I must say what I saw at the end was disgusting, but good! Lol.  I saw a lot of build up come out of my hair, that I wasn’t seeing when I was using the Shea Moisture Deep Cleansing Shampoo (that I wrote about in this post).

One of the things I have read about  Dr. Bronner’s soap is that you will want to dilute the soap, as it is very heavy.  I usually wash my hair in the shower, so that the water is already running on my hair and the bar of soap.

Overall, I am pleased with the results of this product, and will be using it more often!
