What Makes a Shampoo Bar Different?


Perfecting your all-natural hair care routine takes a little time and patience, but it is worth it in the end! As you make changes, your scalp needs time to adjust. Liquid shampoos often contain chemical detergents that strip your scalp of its natural oils. When you switch to an all-natural shampoo bar, it takes time for your scalp to adjust and stop overproducing oil. The texture of your hair may feel a little different in the transition process, but shouldn’t last more than two weeks or so. The addition of an herbal infused vinegar rinse will help with this process and act as a conditioner for your hair and scalp. Dilute an herbal infused vinegar to the ratio that works best for you. We recommend using a squirt bottle with a top similar to dish soap for easy application in the shower. You can leave the vinegar in your hair or let it sit for a few minutes and rinse. Once your hair dries, you will no longer smell the vinegar. It will make your hair feel smooth like you applied a detangler, plus you get the added benefits that apple cider vinegar and the herbs lend to the health of your hair and scalp!

How to Use a Shampoo Bar

Simply rub the shampoo bar on your head or in your hands to create a thick lather and shampoo as usual. You will find that your hair rinses quickly. We recommend trying the shampoo for at least two weeks to give your scalp time to adjust. A shampoo bar is also an excellent choice for travel as it doubles as both shampoo and soap!

How to Use Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse

Shampoo bars have a slightly higher pH than the scalp likes. Some people use a shampoo bar with no trouble at all, but most will benefit from the use of an apple cider vinegar rinse occasionally. Our herbal infused apple cider vinegar rinse is concentrated and intended to be diluted to the concentration that works best for your hair. I use approximately 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water. I enjoy the tingly feeling of the cool vinegar rinse in the shower, as well as the way it makes my hair and scalp feel, so I use it several times a week. Some may only need to use it once a week or so, depending on your hair type and personal preference. After shampooing, simply squirt the diluted vinegar rinse on your scalp and hair. I let the vinegar rinse sit for a few minutes and then rinse it out. You can also leave it in your hair, and once your hair dries, you will no longer smell the vinegar.

Keeping your hair moisturized with Organic Argan Oil

I’ve always known that Argan oil is fantastic for your hair but being that I have an oily scalp, I was afraid to use it for fear it would make my hair look greasy. The thing is, my scalp is oily, but my hair is dry and frizzy. Not anymore! I put Argan oil on my hair, concentrating on the dry ends, an hour or two before I shower, a few times per week. I then pull my hair up and let it soak in until I’m ready to shower. My hair has never looked so healthy or been so manageable! Argan oil is non-greasy and also doesn’t clog pores. So this also doubles as a moisturizer for your face and your body. Argan oil is especially helpful if you’re traveling and trying to minimize what you need to pack!
