Why should I use a shampoo bar instead of liquid shampoo?
Your scalp naturally excretes oils to protect and nourish your hair. Unfortunately liquid shampoos cleanse hair with detergents that can strip it of all its natural oils. This can cause your scalp to overreact and create an excessive amount of oils that consequently requires more frequent washing.
Our natural shampoo bar cleans without stripping hair of its natural oils. Many people have even reported scalp conditions improving due to the absence of washing without harsh chemicals.
Why does it take time for hair to adjust to natural shampoo bars?
Some people experience heavy, dull, or greasy hair for a period of time after switching to a natural shampoo bar. This is the result of chemical residue and buildup getting worked out of hair. Additionally the scalp is learning to adjust and regulate its proper oil production.
This transitional period can range anywhere from one day to one month. Hair length, genetics, and the amount of built up hair product can impact the actual length of time. Included within our boxes are some helpful tips for a smoother transition.
Here’s a couple blog post on the topic that provide great tips and advice:
How many washes will one shampoo bar provide?
Since it is not a liquid, one bar has a concentration equivalence of multiple shampoo bottles. Mileage however may vary depending on washing habits. The longer a bar is exposed to water the faster it will break down.
This shampoo so so easy to use. It brings out my natural curls and waves so easily and I do not have to wash my hair as often. It does take some adjustment time but then it’s great! Def saves me time on my hair.
I love this shampoo bar. It lathers more than I ever expected, rinses out easily, and leaves my hair feeling clean but not frizzy. I also like that there is no plastic packaging, I just toss the cardboard box it comes in in the compost pile.
I love this stuff. My hair is soft and not weighed down. It does a great job cleaning my hair and leaving it shiny and fresh.
I like the concept of using a bar shampoo without all the chemicals. For the first couple of weeks, it was difficult to get a lather, and my hair felt "gummy." The last couple of days , it feels clean. I have been using 1 Tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water as a rinse. My hair feels a little bit softer now.
I am hooked on this shampoo and will continue to buy it.
I love my shampoo bar. It lathers nicely and it smells great.
