How to use a Shampoo Bar
Shampoo bars can take a bit of getting used to, and it may be a few days, or even weeks before you see the results. But they are worth it! Gently rub wet the shampoo bar directly onto your hair from scalp to ends in a combing motion. Cover each section of your hair. Gently massage scalp and hair, adding more water as needed, until a good lather forms. Alternatively you can lather it up in your hands, and massage into your scalp and hair. Depending on your hair type, you may need a little conditioner on the tips of your hair, or use an apple cider rinse after washing with the shampoo bar.
Switching to a natural shampoo bar is probably the best thing you can do for your hair and the environment, but it can take time to adjust! This can take anything from a couple of days to a few weeks, depending on hair length and how much chemical residue there is from your old shampoo.
As detergent shampoo strips away the natural oils that protect your hair, your scalp produces more oil to compensate. As you change to a natural shampoo bar, your scalp needs time to rebalance oil production. It needs to realise that you are not taking the oils out, and it doesn’t need to produce more! During this period, hair may feel extra greasy or heavy. Make sure you rinse extra thoroughly after shampooing. You may find using an Apple Cider Vinegar rinse, or mixing a tsp of baking soda in a little warm water and rinsing helps with the build up of oils during the transition period.
The secret to success with a natural shampoo bar is to not give up straight away! We use some amazing oils, and of course goats milk in our shampoo bars to really help nourish your hair, and not strip out the good stuff.
