Have you tried using gugo shampoo or the gugo bark itself? When I was in the elementary grade, my mother used to buy gugo bark at Quiapo church. We normally soak it in water a few minutes before bath time. Then we liberally apply it on our hair. It’s kinda gooey stuff like aloe vera when you put it on your hair, leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse. It’s a good thing that gugo shampoo was invented. Now you don’t have to put gooey stuff on your hair, you can apply it as a regular shampoo. Though I must admit that it does not have the same effect unlike the real thing. But that will do for convenience. Other parts of the tree is also being used to alleviate other ailments like rheumatism,leg pains, sprains, edema, jaundice, abdominal pains and colic.
