Hello, fellow old timer! I just used some of your sulfur soap and I really like it. I was talking about it with my 18 year old nephew who is recently suffering from very oily hair - Do you feel this soap would help with this condition? I have normally dry hair, and after using this as more of a shampoo I found that the oils & glycerin in the bar act as a sort of conditioner. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello sir. Sulfur based soaps are generally more drying than other soap types. I always recommend the soap for people with acne and related skin conditions, and it does combat oiliness of the skin. I have done some reading and what I have found suggests that it can be very good for relieving dandruff and other scalp conditions such as oiliness. I suggest if your nephew wants to give it a try to have him suds it up a good amount in his hands then apply to wet hair. Give it a decent scrub, then rinse completely. Repeat the process. Then at the end have him rinse his head with a very weak solution of apple cider vinegar and water. I suggest 2 tablespoons of vinegar to 1 pint water for the solution. Just put into cleaned scalp and hair for a light rinse, nothing big time. Just enough to feel that you applied it into hair and scalp. Then rinse completely out. What that does is cause the hair follicles to close up (which is good), and it also ph balances the scalp. The result is that your scalp is a healthy PH (too basic of a PH encourages fungus growth), and the hair will feel soft because the follicles are closed up.
He shouldn't worry about the vinegar smell. It all goes away with the final rinse.
I make this soap with a large amount of Pure Pharmaceutical Grade Sublimed Sulfur in it (10% by volume!) to help with Acne, Blackheads, Psoriasis, oily skin, and other nasty skin issues. Many people even use sulfur soap for dermatitis, demodex & other skin mites, itchy skin, and rosacea.
In fact you will be hard pressed to find a better Sulfur soap than mine. I put the highest grade Pharmaceutical Sublimed Sulfur in my soaps, the same exact type of sulfur Pharmacists use to prepare acne creams. This type and grade of sulfur is very pure and not super stinky and overpowering like lower grade non-sublimed sulfur other soapmakers use.
I do not add any fragrance in my sulfur soap so it is naturally scented. In fact the only ingredients in this premium quality soap are 10% by volume Pure Sublimed Sulfur, Coconut Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Glycerin, and Lye (used for saponification to create the soap; final product contains no lye).
