Maui Tropical Soap has their new line of shampoos. I love their bars of soap (as I used to make my own soaps but cold pressed is all I would use) to the max! I haven't gotten them in a long time however as I am loaded with soaps here. Man do they smell great too!! Great gifts to you or others.
I don't recognize all these ingredients when ordering so what do you think? I see sodium stuff below:
Created with Extraccts of Interactive Botanicals suspended in Purified Maui Rain Water (Bergamot, Papaya, Coconut, Zinc, Mango, Pineapple, Apricot, Amyris, Nasturtium, Passion Flower, Ginger Root, Guava Berry, Comfrey, Carrot), Lauramidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Cocoamphoacetate Amid, Safflower Oil, Jojoba Oil, Canola Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Citrus Aurantifolia, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Ocean Mineral Complex, Citric Acid, Vitamin C, Citrus Seed Extract, Fragrance.

Created with Extraccts of Interactive Botanicals suspended in Purified Maui Rain Water (Bergamot, Papaya, Coconut, Zinc, Mango, Pineapple, Apricot, Amyris, Nasturtium, Passion Flower, Ginger Root, Guava Berry, Comfrey, Carrot), - These sound OK.
Lauramidopropyl Betaine , Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Cocoamphoacetate Amid - these are the foaming agents, they make your shampoo get suds. Any shampoo that gets sudsy has chemicals in it. These are the bad chemicals - they might have been 'natural' ingredients at one time (like coconut oil) but they have been synthetically altered in a lab so they will suds. Yuck.
Safflower Oil, Jojoba Oil, Canola Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Citrus Aurantifolia - OK. The Citrus Aurantifolia is Key Lime. Canola Oil really isn't that great for hair though.
Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Ocean Mineral Complex, Citric Acid, Vitamin C, Citrus Seed Extract - Not too bad but hydrolyzed things are not great. We don't know what is in the Ocean Mineral Complex either - probalby OK. Might be mostly salt though.
Fragrance - Questionable? We don't know if this is a synthetic fragrance or a natural one.
Just so you know the ingredients at the top of the list are the ones that are supposed to comprise up the majority of the product. So. the extracts and the foaming agents comprise most of the shampoo.
There are worse shampoos on the market than this one obviously - at least it is not all chemicals. But it still has a few baddies in it.

Wow, you are a great teacher. I wasn't sure on some of the ingredients, but the sodium one popped out. I would love to get something with the Hawai. scents but surely not with the "baddies" either. I'm not willing to trade scent for "bad."
A lifetime of dry, hair that can come out very easily is not ideal eating a very healthy diet. I'm needing to use something to make my nutrients more absorbable.
Thanks again ANGEL ..... as I call ya.

I don't know if you are are up to the idea but you might want to check out the no poo method - that is very good for people with problems with dry, fragile hair.
I bet your hair would do great on it. Do a search on here there are a couple thread on it with lots of tips. :)
