HERBAL SHAMPOO BARS
ABOUT HERBAL SHAMPOO BARS
Made with 100% natural, pure ingredients, using the cold processed method and 100% pure essential oils for scent. If you haven’t tried shampoo bars yet, there are several reasons to switch from traditional liquid shampoo to shampoo bars. Whether it is for environmental reasons (no plastic bottle to discard) or saving space, we hope you find our bars to give your hair the life and lustre you desire. You can also use these shampoo bars as a body bar so they’re great for travel. See HOW TO USE at the bottom of this page.
The base ingredients are Olive, Coconut, Castor oils, so shampoo bars include a lot of soft oils, which render a soft bar. We do suggest giving your bar its own soap dish and avoid leaving it in a pool of water as it will muck up. It will last longer if allowed to stay dry longer.
HOW TO USE HERBAL SHAMPOO BARS
In case you have never used a shampoo bar before, here are a few tips. First, wet your hair and your shampoo bar. Next, try one of these methods:
For short hair, this seems to work best: Rub the shampoo bar on your wet hair to work up a lather.
If you have longer hair you can rub the bar down your hair from your roots to the ends to work up a lather.
Or rub the bar in both hands to work up a lather, then apply the lather to your wet hair.
Gently massage the lather into your hair and on your scalp. Lather-rinse-repeat. Your hair may feel different than it does when you use commercial liquid shampoo. When you switch from commercial shampoo with its detergents and chemicals, your hair may go through an adjustment period. It can take several shampoos to rid your hair of the detergent residue, so please give your new shampoo bar time before you decide it isn't for you. Rinsing your hair with vinegar and water will help. It doesn’t matter if you use white vinegar or apple cider vinegar. Just be careful. Don't let the vinegar and water mixture run in your eyes.
Work the vinegar and water through your hair, then rinse it out. You should notice the difference in how your hair feels… smoother and softer. The vinegar restores your hair's pH as well as helps to detangle and soften your hair. Depending on how your hair feels, you may wish to repeat the vinegar rinse.
If you’re worried about your hair smelling like vinegar, do not worry…the vinegar smell fades and will go away.
