WorkshopAll of our products are made with the best natural ingredients we can find and lovingly crafted at our cottage in the Herefordshire countryside.
No Palm Oil
No Parabens or Artificial Fragrances
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 the apple cider vinegar rinse?
You may need to use a stronger solution than the one suggested above.
Another trick if you live in a hard water area is to add a tablespoon 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!
This is the first bar shampoo to work well with my hair. So glad to have got through the adjustment period (which never happened with other shampoo bars-i've tried many). Definitely worth the effort. I suspect the cider vinegar is key and the oils are not too over powering. MY HAIR IS SMOOTH, MANAGEABLE, HEALTHY AND SMELLS GREAT. Thank you
So GReat!!! me and my boyfriend absolutely love it. It took my hair adjust a lil longer than his, but my hair only needed apple cider vinegar rinses twice and after that its been great. ALSO, I took my bar with me while going to hairdressers to do some highlights- I wanted to give it a try if it would wash out all the colour and bleach and voila! my hair is colour treated and I have no problems washing with this soap bar. Have to order some more now. Give it a try!!
This shAmpoo soap is absolutely amazing, I am so glad i found it! It foams so much more than any other natUral shampoo ive used, and has a Gorgeous smelling lather. My hair feels clean but also nourished - with natural shampoos My hair usually Still feels a bit greasy. But this bar is the perfect balance, it feels so clean but equally has a lovely weight to it, it feels shiny and hydrated. I intend to never use anything else aGain! Seriously impressed and happy ive found it :) I cannot recommend this enough!
Really lovely product which I definitely recommend, makes the whole house smell good and works really well on my hair.
Really horrid. I have thick, greying, colour treated hair. I’ve used this product twice. Both times my hair felt like candy floss afterwards. Despite rinsing in a hot shower for absolutely ages, i was left with a waxy residue on my haIr. On touching my hair, it felt like i had been stroking a dog. My friend bought one too and has had the same experience.
Thank you Kim for taking time to write a review. Sorry to hear that the shampoo bar is not working for you. It does state on the leaflet that there can be a transition period, especially if you have treated hair. You don't mention if you tried the Apple Cider Vinegar rinse which is recommended? 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. There are lots of hints and tips on our website. If you still find it is not working for you it is totally fine to use the shampoo bar for your body!
Thank you Anna for taking time to write a review. Sorry to hear that the shampoo bar is not working for you. As you say it can take a while for your hair to get used to this kind of shampoo, everyone’s hair is different and maybe this is not the shampoo for you but glad you are enjoying it as a body soap :)
