HOW DOES YOUR SHAMPOO BAR'S DIFFER FROM REGULAR SOAP?
In regards to soaps and shampoo bars, the difference is the percentage of the oils & butters that are used and also what botanicals & other ingredients that are added (eg: nettle extract). Even though the ingredients may be similar, the ratios & extra ingredients is what sets them apart.
Ours are all natural cold-pressed bars with no nasties.
WHAT IS THE PH OF THE SHAMPOO BARS?
Our bars are a PH of 9. It is impossible to get a lower PH in a shampoo bar (that still cleans!) unless using synthetic ingredients to do so. Natural, cold-pressed shampoo bars (like ours) with no nasties (also like ours), tend to be at a PH around 8-10 and we are smack bang in the middle!
MY HAIR FEELS A BIT DRY AFTER USING SHAMPOO BARS, IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO?
We recommend using an acid rinse (like apple cider vinegar) after washing your hair. This will balance the hair and also take away any residue from the bars. Mix 1 part ACV with 4 parts water (it will feel instantly softer!). And don't worry, your hair won't smell like vinegar once it is dried. This can be either left in or rinsed out. You can even mix some essential oils into your vinegar mix for a lasting scent. Or follow with our Rosemary & Mint conditioner bar.
WHY DOES MY HAIR FEEL WAXY/GREASY AFTER USING A SHAMPOO BAR?
When making the switch to a solid shampoo, your scalp needs time to rebalance scalp oil. Some people (not all) go through a transition faze and start overproducing sebum while the scalp readjusts. This faze can take a few weeks, and if you have hard water the transition period is usually longer.
