5.0 out of 5 stars Best Soap Ever, September 13, 2013
This review is from: Dr. Bronner's Castile Soap Organic Peppermint 8 oz. (Health and Beauty)
I feel a little silly writing my first Amazon review over some soap, but that's just how much I love this stuff. Dr. Bronner's is amazing! I bought the Castile soap to use as a shampoo to go along with my "No Poo" experiment, but I have since used it for so much more! As a shampoo, this stuff is perfect. My hair has never been fuller or curlier (I have super thick, wavy hair, down to my mid-back). I've always received compliments on my hair, but now people rave about how it looks. Sometimes I dilute it with coconut milk, but most of the time I use it straight out of the bottle. At first, I had a problem with a sticky residue left behind on my hair, which was clogging up my brushes, but I figured out that diluting the soap takes care of that problem (10 parts water/coconut milk to 1 part soap); however, I have now discovered Dr. Bronner's Citrus Conditioning Hair Rinse 8 Ounces, which is specifically designed to rinse away the "goop" left behind, and I feel like my life is now complete!

I could go on and on about the many uses (18, as claimed by Dr. Bronner himself!), but I would get pretty boring. I will, however, add that this is the best dog shampoo I have ever used on my precious, white MaltiPoo. We have had a flea problem this summer in Middle Tennessee, and even with Advantix he seems to bring in a few fleas on occasion. Not after I started washing him in Dr. Bronner's! Peppermint is a natural insect deterrent, and the fleas are killed on contact when I scrub him down with this soap. Plus, his coat has never been whiter or softer! He's happy because less grooming is required, and I'm happy because he's fresh and clean with no nasty little bugs along for the ride. I was bathing him every day for a few days due to fleas, and his sensitive, allergy-prone skin did not dry out - in fact, we had no problems at all with itching or flaking.

If you are even slightly considering buying this soap (I know it's also sold at Whole Foods, Kroger, Target, and many other places), I say go for it. I know it's just a soap, but it's, for real, life-changing. I am getting everyone I know some for Christmas (and I'm a super gift-giver, so you know this stuff must be good!). I now swear by it.

Very helpful review, Courtney. Especially about the dog bath -- our Dalmation has severe reactions to Advantix. She is a house pet and really very clean, but I think the peppermint scent isn't going to hurt one bit. The first few minutes after she comes in from lying (baking) in the sun are a little hard to take... whew! I just bought a 32 oz. bottle this afternoon and haven't gone over its many uses yet. I use Kirk's Castile Bar Soap for showering so had hoped this might work in its place. It smells better.

I certainly envy you your thick, long and wavy hair. It probably won't do much for my blonde bob cut.
