Help balance your oily scalp with our tea tree and charcoal shampoo bar, give your hair a good cleanse while restoring your natural shine.
Our clarifying shampoo bar will gently but thoroughly cleanse your hair, so is suitable for oily scalps or the occasional wash to remove product build-up. With lightweight grapeseed oil and nourishing coconut oil, this shampoo bar will help cleanse oily hair and balance an over-productive oily scalp.
We have chosen to add tea tree and spearmint essential oils to this shampoo bar, for a fresh scent that will help you wake up in the morning shower. We’d recommend following your shampoo with our matching conditioner bar.
Tea Tree & Charcoal Shampoo Bar is VEGAN friendly.
Minimum weight 75g in an aluminium tin (or refill style wax paper bag). Please reuse or recycle your tin.
How to use your shampoo bar:
You have a couple of options of applying the shampoo, experiment to see what works best for you. You can either apply the bar directly to your wet hair, concentrating on the scalp. Alternatively, rub the bar in your wet hands to produce the shampoo and apply this to your hair with your hands. Use your fingers to massage the shampoo into your hair and produce the bubbles, a little goes a long way so if it’s not as bubbly as you’d like, try adding more water before adding more shampoo. Rinse hair thoroughly, follow with a conditioner.
The shampoo is a concentrated product, so you may be surprised how little you need to apply. It might take a couple of washes to get the hang of how much to use. There shouldn’t be any kind of transition period and you definitely don’t need to follow with a vinegar rinse!
Please allow your shampoo bar to dry between uses, to make sure it lasts as long as possible. Do not store in the tin unless completely dry. Leaving the bar in a puddle of water will make it dissolve and disappear quickly. We recommend using a wire shower shelf to allow the air to circulate around your bars between uses.
Top tip: If you find the ends of your hair are prone to dryness, (especially if you have long hair), only apply the shampoo to your scalp and allow it to run through the rest of your hair as you are rinsing it out.
Some of the ingredients we have chosen include:
Sodium Cocyl Isethionate is a very gentle surfactant (cleanser) that is derived from coconuts and is therefore palm oil free. SCI produces great lather, is very mild and has a soft and silky feel in use.
Grapeseed Oil can add strength and shine, by restoring vibrancy and promoting healthy hair growth.
Coconut Oil can is often said to be the best oil to use on your hair as it can help reduce protein loss from your hair and can keep it looking healthy.
Tea Tree Essential Oil has a well-known reputation for its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, making it an excellent cleanser. As such it is used in many products aimed at reducing dandruff, preventing excess oil production and stimulating hair growth. Tea tree oil can help rebalance your scalp’s pH, which will help control excess oil production.
Activated Charcoal is well known for its abilities to adsorb toxins and impurities due to activated charcoal having a huge surface area. It is great for the scalp because you can target impurities at the root of the hair that can cause scalp issues by clogging the hair follicles.
Benzyl Alcohol, Salicylic Acid, Glycerin, Sorbic Acid is a naturally derived broad spectrum preservative blend that has ECOCERT and COSMOS status (meaning it is certified as natural / organic). We think it’s really important to include a preservative in all our shampoo and conditioner bars as they are designed to get wet and could easily grow bacteria and mould in your shower.
