The Disaster with Aubrey Organics Island Naturals Shampoo Continues...

My hair is still recovering from my disaster with Aubrey Organics Island Naturals Shampoo, who knew that this shampoo would wreck havoc on my hair? I tried it a few times before and it stripped my hair so in the trash it went a week ago. This is the second all-natural organic shampoo/soap that did this to my hair, the first was Dr. Bronner's Castille Soap. I've noticed my hair has alot of knots and spilt ends, its like the shampoo just sucked every last drop of moisture out of my hair because the split end weren't there before. I did a protein treatment and am loading my hair with Herbal Essences conditioner every night than putting my hair into 4 loose bantu knots and tying my hair down. In the morning I fluff and put it in a puff.

The problem may be a protein overload. The AO Island Natural Shampoo contains protein, which your hair may not need (or at least not as often). If your hair is dry, you should try deep conditioning as opposed to doing a protein treatment. Finding the right protein/moisture balance is very tricky to figure, but once you do your hair will flourish. HTH

Did you dillute either of these shampoos? Do you have hard water? The shampoos are castille based, so they can be harsh if you don't dillute them. If you have hard water that can explain it too.

You shouldn't have to dilute something that is 'natural'. Your may just not like these products, not everyone's hair is the same or even responds the same.

I hope you recover shortly.

& please, just stick to what your hair likes.

The funny thing is that the same shampoo has had the same effect on my hair. However my hair loves the Dr. Bronner's. Just drench your hair with moisture and it will come back to normal.
