Please Note: There is usually an adjustment period of about 1 month on chemically treated hair when using natural products.
To use the shampoo bar just wet your hair thoroughly and rub the bar over your head until you feel enough has been left on your hair to create a lather.
Wash as normal and you can then use your usual conditioner if you wish or you may find over time you will not need it as your hair is not stripped of its natural healthy oils.
If you live in a hard water area you may need to rinse or spray hair with a vinegar rinse of 1 tablespoon ACV (apple cider vinegar) per cup of warm water and rinse out.
Hints + Tips
Having greasy hair may be a fall out from using a commercial shampoo. Commercial detergent shampoo will have stripped your hair of its natural oils, your scalp would then have produced more oil to compensate for this. Therefore it may take a week or more for your scalp to rebalance its oil production, during this period you hair may feel greasy or heavy.
There is also the problem of product build up from commercial shampoo's and conditioners which often contain waxes,
synthetic silicones, and silica that coat your hair, to make it "feel" nice, but leave a residue in your hair.
You can help remove this build up by rinsing you hair with 2 tablespoons of baking soda dissolved in a cup of warm water.
Also the water you are washing your hair with may be causing problems. Have you tried using and apple cider vinegar rinse
after washing, 1 tablespoon ACV (apple cider vinegar) per cup of warm water and rinse out.
Another trick if you live in a hard water area is to add a pinch of baking soda to a pint of warm water. Use this solution to wet hair before shampooing. It can help the shampoo bar lather better and thus rinse out more thoroughly.
Please always make sure you have rinsed your hair thoroughly after shampooing.
Since our hand crafted soap has no chemical preservatives, it deserves a little bit of attention to keep it happy and prolong its life.
All of our soap has a high percentage of natural glycerine which is great for your skin as its incredibly moisturising but it also attracts water so its really important to keep it somewhere dry.
When you are not using it its best to keep it out of water on a well drained surface so that it completely dries between uses. Use a soap dish (wooden dishes with open slats are perfect) or you could even be a bit creative and use a few pebbles from the garden.
This will help make it last so you can get the most from your soap and enjoy feeling naturally fresh and fragrant for as long as possible!

I ABSOLUTELY ADORE THIS SHAMPOO BAR!! FROM THE VERY FIRST WASH MY HAIR FELT SUPER HEALTHY, LIGHT AND BOUNCY. I DON'T NORMALLY USE CONDITIONER, BUT AS MY HAIR IS VERY LONG AND TENDS TO BE ON THE DRY SIDE I CONDITION IT WITH SOME OLIVE OR COCONUT OIL ONCE A WEEK - JUST DOUSE MY HAIR IN OIL, WRAP AND LEAVE FOR ABOUT HALF HOUR, THEN WASH WELL WITH THE SHAMPOO BAR. (I GUESS THIS STEP WOULD BE UNNECESSARY IF YOUR HAIR IS NORMAL OR TENDS TO GET GREASY EASILY - JUST THE BAR ON ITS OWN SHOULD WORK FOR YOU!) COULDN'T RECOMMEND IT MORE!
