Soap nuts as CG friendly shampoo... ever head of them, and what do you think?

ArjaeArjae Posts: 412Registered Users
I have some things called "Soap Nuts". They're mostly used as laundry soap. They're natural, and they actually grow on trees. You can read about them here: /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fmaggiespureland.com%2Findex.html." class="Popup
They say you can boil them, and use the solution for normal soap. Also, on the brochure it says: "Since ancient times, Soap Nuts have been used for laundering fine silks and wools, by jewelers for shining gold and silver ornaments, as a hair wash to increase luster and softness, and as a skin soap to improve skin condition".

Here's another website about them. /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mynewvigrx2006.info%2FSOAP%2520NUTS.html" class="Popup
They say you can use it for your hair.

I think they do suds up a little. Could I use this to wash my hair, and do you think this would be considered CG?

    Sounds interesting. I'd like to know too!

    I saw you can also get soap nuts powder; just add water, and use the paste as a shampoo. Seems less messy.

    Hmmm, well, 87 views and no one seems to know anything about them. Oh well. I guess they are pretty unusual!

    On a different forum I have heard of people using them, so I know it can be done. But... my knowledge of them ends there I'm afraid. Which is why I didn't reply before.
