Chamomile for the hair:
Chamomile has a decent amount of vitamin A, C, D, E, B7 and B-complex (Biotin) which nourishes the hair and helps it grow. It has many antiseptic properties that clears away dead skin cells and debris that gets lodged in the root of hair, which can keep it from growing properly.
It is perfect for soothing itchy scalps, and prevent dandruff.
Chamomile is known for brighten your hair without harming it.
(NaOH, Caustic Soda, Lye), We use Sodium Hydroxide commonly noun as caustic soda or lye to saponify the oils.
Saponification is the chemical reaction of making soap. Once the saponification, is complete, the lye and oil molecules have combined and chemically changed into soap and natural glycerine.
The lye is used up in the saponification process to turn oil into soap.
There is no sodium hydroxide present in the finished bars of soap or shampoo after the curing process. While all real soap must be made with sodium hydroxide (lye), no lye remains in our finished product after saponification. If it is real soap or contains real soap, it must be made with sodium hydroxide (lye).
