I'd like to make a cocoa powder rinse.
Which of the two proceeses of making cocoa powder is good for the hair ? I know the cocoa produced in one method is good for the hair while the other isn't.
Adding an alkali produces Dutch process cocoa powder, which is less acidic and darker. Regular (non-alkalized) cocoa is acidic, so when cocoa is treated with an alkaline ingredient, the pH increases.

So which one is good for the hair ? The non-alkalized or the cocoa powder which has had an alkali added to it ( the Dutch process cocoa powder ) ?

    The one that hasn't been alkalized. I used to know a master brand list of non-alkalized cocoa, but I forget where, let me rummage through my favorites and I"ll get back to you
