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.
I started my adventure with shampoo bars and ditching conventional shampoo a few months ago so I've tried two other brands and this one is the winner. SO GOOD. The scent is strong and delicious as you're washing and then just leaves your hair smelling clean, and oh my WORD your hair is so soft after. Crazy good. I don't use conditioner, either! I forgot all about it because I don't need it! (I'm naturally blonde and the ends of my hair are lightened, even! But they're still so healthy!) I feel like it's helping my blonde stay cool-toned and not get brassy too, because of the lack of bad chemicals and buildup. Anyway, I love it!
Was afraid I wouldn’t like the scent but I was desperate to get back to using it when peppermint was out of stock. It smells so good. Have been washing my hair twice a week now and feels even better than the multiple shampoos I’ve had to switch around. Dandruff is finally gone, not even head and shoulders did a thing for me. I love yellow bird shampoo bars!
I like the smell and the way it makes my hair feel.
After using this shampoo bar for the past week, I can confidently say I won't be buying bottled, liquid shampoo any longer! I have straight, fine hair of medium thickness and the shampoo bar has cleansed my hair beautifully. It would be wonderful to have a companion conditioner bar. ;)
My husband loves it. It has made his hair super soft from the first use. We can't smell the Grapefruit scent though, only the Rosemary and Lavender smell come through.
