Shampoo Bar Guide
Our shampoo bars are free of any synthetic colorants, preservatives, and are scented with 100% pure essential oils. Made with the finest vegetable oils and butters our shampoo bars also have the benefit of minimal packaging – there are no plastic bottles to recycle or throw away.
To use the shampoo bar simply “comb” on the bar from the top of your scalp to the bottom several times. Next work the lather through your hair -you’ll be surprised at the amount of lather- and then rinse as usual.
If you have regularly used commercial shampoo and conditioner your hair may have collected chemical conditioners that will tend to weigh your hair down over time. This “build up” on your hair may take several shampoos to strip off and can intially cause your hair to feel sticky, stiff or just YUCKY! This YUCKY hair syndrome can be immediately taken care of with a simple rinse of vinegar. Use a vinegar or lemon rinse (1 – 2 tsp. of vinegar in a cup of warm water – we use apple cider vinegar) for one to two weeks. Use as a rinse after shampooing and leave it in for several minutes and then rinse. Some people like to leave it in for extra body and shine. The vinegar smell will go away once your hair is dried. Within one to two weeks you will have beautiful, shiny, healthy hair.
Many of our customers continue to use the clarifying vinegar rinse once or twice a week as a regular part of their hair care routine.
Remember – like all of out artisan soap bars please make sure your bars stay HIGH and DRY between uses. They last the longest if they are stored on a well drained soap dish.
