In short, saponification is defined byMerriam-Websteras‘the act, process, or result of making soap: conversion into soap’.In order to achieve a solid bar of soap, you will need to mix fats and oils with a sodium or potassium hydroxide.
The other incredibly important thing to consider is that shampoo/soap bars thatdo notcontain sodium hydroxide/caustic soda/lye are not natural. These are what are referred to assyndetbars, we’ve written extensively about the difference between natural and syndet barshere.Moreover, the word syndet is derived from the wordssyntheticanddetergent.
My fine grey hair has bounce and more bulk. I will need fewer washes as it stays in shape for four or five days. I have given conditioners away as I always felt they just weighed my hair down. Great stuff! Love you, Carmel.
Not happy at all. My hair was very course and dry after using the shampoo and conditioner bars. Very disappointing as I read all the reviews and I had spent a lot of money on it. Would not recommend or use again.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write feedback.
Did you try the clarifying shampoo sachet prior to washing? As I feel like this is an issue with previous product build-up reacting with the natural bars.
