5 oz bar Ingredients: Distilled Water, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Avocado Oil, Sustainably Sourced Palm Oil, Jojoba Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, Neroli Essential Oil
Directions: Using the fingertips, massage into the scalp & leave on while you finish your shower. Rinse out completely. If you normally use conditioner, apply it on the hair avoiding the scalp area. These shampoo bars yield 80-100 washes, or the equivalent of 3-4 bottles of traditional, liquid shampoo.
Optional: An apple cider rinse following the bar shampoo aids with manageability & leaves the hair soft & beautifully shiny & full. Apple cider vinegar removes build-up from the hair & restores a proper PH to the scalp. To do the rinse put 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a cup & add approximately 8oz of warm water from the shower. Rinse immediately or leave on the scalp while you finish your shower & then rinse out completely. You may smell the vinegar in the shower, but once your hair is dry, the vinegar smell will dissipate.
Adjusting to your shampoo bar.
Please do not use a shampoo bar once or twice and decide that you don’t like it. Everyone is different, and everyone’s hair is different, and what works for one person may not be suitable for another. You may need to give your shampoo bar several days, maybe even up to two weeks to remove the old residues from your commercial shampoo. Give your hair time to get used to the lack of chemicals and remove product buildup. Maybe you will not experience an adjustment period. But if you do, here is some advice. During the adjustment period, you may notice your hair feeling dry, brittle, or just not healthy. It may feel as if there is a coating, waxiness, or buildup on your hair. Those who use heavy styling products or have long hair may notice this effect (which will subside over time) more than those who use minimal styling products for short hair. This effect is caused by styling product buildup and the fact that our shampoo bars do not contain Sodium Laurel Sulphate to remove the buildup. Shampoo bars also do not contain artificial chemicals or silicone that smooth the hair. Some people have used shampoo bars and found their scalp over producing oil (because they used to use a harsh shampoo). Sticking with your shampoo bar, you will start to see the scalp will soon realize its oils are not being stripped, and it will stop overproducing. Eventually, your hair will feel wonderful. Hard water may produce a similar buildup experience, so a vinegar rinse is highly recommended.
