Some things to know about our shampoo bars. A liquid detergent shampoo is very good at cleaning your hair, so good, it also strips your hair of natural oils, but they also deposit residue. (Have you ever noticed your favorite shampoo works better if you switch it up sometimes?) Our shampoo bars don't strip the hair, but instead leave those natural oils on your scalp. Typically it takes our customers about a week for your hair to 'get used' to your new cleansing method.
Here are a few tips to help get you on the way to chemical free and lovely locks!
1. Lather. Rinse. Repeat. No seriously! Washing your hair the first time gets rid of the dirt and excess oils. That second lather is important to completely cleanse the hair.
2. Rinse VERY well. Remember, this isn't a chemcial. A good rinse is very important to get all of the soap out of your hair.
3. About once a week, our customers have that an Apple Cider Vinegar rinse helps to close the cuticle of the hair and keep it shiny. Mix 1/4 cup to 1 cup of apple cider vinegar with about 12-16 ounces of water. Experiment to find a dilution that works best for you (if you have dry hair, use a little less vinegar and oily hair use a little more).
4. Finally, check your water type. If you have very hard water, you may find it better to rinse your hair in distilled water or a very light apple cider vinegar rinse.
