HOW TO USE OUR SHAMPOO BARS
When you first switch to our natural shampoo bars, you may go through what is called a “transition phase”. During this time your hair may feel oily, and feel it has a waxy residue on it.
WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN?
There are three reasons this happens:
You may live in a hard water area.
Conventional shampoos and conditioners contain silicone to make your hair feel soft and look shiny. These products leave residues that natural products find hard to remove.
Conventional shampoos tend to remove your natural oils causing your scalp to react and over-produce oils to compensate. So because natural shampoo bare are more gentle it may take time for your scalp to adjust to a new washing method.
BEFORE USING YOUR SHAMPOO BAR
Try using a baking soda rinse once before you start using your shampoo bar and especially if you live in a hard water area.
1 tablespoon of baking soda (bicarbonate of soda)
1 litre of warm water
Dissolve the baking soda in the warm water and pour over wet hair. DO NOT RINSE OFF.
Proceed to then use your shampoo bar.
USING YOUR SHAMPOO BAR
Solid shampoo bare are more concentrated that normal shampoos.
Lather the shampoo bar in your hands and apply the foam to your hair and wash as you would a liquid shampoo. Rinse and repeat concentrating on getting your whole head and scalp washed.
You may need a vinegar rinse afterwards, it will balance the Ph (soap is a alkaline and our skin is slightly acidic). It will help remove any residue and leave your hair shiny. Happy Zero waste and natural hair to you. xx
