Skip the chemicals and cleanse your hair and scalp without stripping away your natural oils...they are intended to be there!
Liquid shampoos, even many claiming to be “natural”, are made of mostly water and also contain preservatives, harsh chemical detergents, and surfactants that are quite effective at cleaning your hair. The surfactants bind themselves to the naturally occurring oil in your hair and allow it to be washed away. These surfactants can be so effective that they strip your scalp of it’s natural oils that protect your scalp. This results in a host of other issues that leads us to purchase more chemical laden conditioning products to fix; that leave our hair dull and weighed down.
Shampoo bars were used many years ago before the commercial liquid shampoos were available, and are making a come back as we all become more educated about the ingredients in the products we apply to our bodies. Shampoo bars can be lathered up in your hands or you can simply rub the bar on your head. You will be amazed at the luscious lather and how quickly you can rinse your hair.
If you are new to shampoo bars, there may be an adjustment period, which could be a few days to a few weeks, depending on your individual body. If you were using a commercial shampoo your scalp was accustomed to stripping away the natural protective oils your body generates for its hair, and to compensate it was making as much of this as possible. With a more natural shampoo bar, your scalp needs time to readjust to this new pattern.
Our shampoo bar is made with organic oils and butters, herbal infusions and essential oils that are great for your hair and scalp. A vinegar rinse can be used as an all natural conditioner to remove product build up without stripping your natural oils while also soothing your scalp and leaving your hair soft and shiny.
Shampoo bars are also great for travel, as they can be used as both soap and shampoo and being non-liquid, you won’t have any issues taking them on an airplane!
