Flower Moon Castile Soap

rudeechickrudeechick Posts: 6,726Registered Users
For those of you who are interested:

I finally got around to trying the Castile Soap I ordered when I got my DW. I believe it was the Chocolate something.

Anyway. It definitely doesnt lather like the DW does, much less. It rinsed a bit as though it left behind a bit. I followed it with Tigi MM rinsed out. Then did my winter routine. My hair is VERY ringlet-y, for those of you who are looking for that. Not as shiny or bouncy as with DW or my other fave soap bar (Pangea); but it looks very uniform and defined.

Just so ya know....:salut:

    I read on another thread that their website can't handle all the curly traffic lately :laughing7: I think we kinda figured that out. Anyway, this gal called and placed her order on the phone instead. :thumbright: So Mims, since you are wanting to try the Castile soaps just give them a call but you may be waiting a long time.......

    Oh and IMO the FM Castille aren't as HEAVY as kathymac's soap bars so bear that in mind if you need tons of moisture this may not be a go for you.

    *snort* I really don't NEEEEEEEEEEED them though...

    I still have a whole bar and a half of Kathymack's, since I'm only using them every now and then.

    I can probably wait until they get caught up. Probably. lol

    I finally received my Flower Moon order yesterday and they included not only the couple of soaps I ordered but a bunch of others.....I was thinking that I'll never be able to use them all up. Now I can't wait to try my chocolate almond one tomorrow.

    Chocolate Almond - thats the one I have! Tons of spiraly curls. Even my 13 year old son who is OBLIVIOUS said "yer hair looks curlier" I almost fainted.

    Love the Cleopatra's Blend and Choco Vanilla...for me they're great for daily use, more so than the DW which is a wonderful clarifying thing for my hair...I know the service isn't great right now, but the products are wonderful, IMHO...I tried samples of KM's bars-like them lots, but would repurchase these before those...

    I gotta tell ya, I have never had such rignlets as I got with this soap! Day 2 and going strong. Not big boingy curls, ringlets - Like the after pic of the readheaded girl in the Hair Rules sidebar ad. .:happy4:

    So I tried the chocolate almond bar yesterday and while I liked it, my hair didn't look much different than usual. I used the lemon verbena bar today and my hair is seriously curly with major shrinkage....

    I can routinely get second day hair with the DW and I'm hoping the same will be true for their bars.

    M
    3A, fine but thick, low porosity, low to medium resilience, protein sensitive but not to silk

    Favorites: Anything from Curly Kinks...their system is my new holy grail. Still liking Juice Organics Orange and TJ Refresh Conditioners as all purpose co-wash and rinse outs.

    MimsTX...I've got short, fine but quite thick, mostly 3a hair. My top canopy is more wavy while the rest of my hair is very curly with pretty good volume normally. I don't need a lot of moisture and tend to use only 1 or 2 styling products at any one time.
