Made to gently cleanse your hair, our Nettle & Rosemary shampoo bar is suitable for normal hair. With nourishing hemp and castor oils, rejuvenating nettle and horsetail herbs to increase shine and strengthen your hair.
We have chosen to add rosemary and cedarwood essential oils to this shampoo bar, which are great for nourishing the hair follicles and increasing strength, shine and hair growth. We’d recommend following your shampoo with our matching conditioner bar.
Nettle & Rosemary 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.
French Green Clay is a fantastic, yet gentle cleanser which can draw out oils and toxins, cleansing the scalp.
Hemp Oil is described as ‘nature’s most balanced oil’ due to its unique fatty acid profile. For hair, it is useful to add shine and prevent breakage. With Vitamins A and E, it can help soothe irritated skin and nourish dry scalps.
Castor Oil has been used for centuries in traditional medicine to help moisturise the scalp, ease dandruff and leave hair shiny. It is also used to support healthy hair follicles and promote hair growth.
Horsetail is an ancient plant that has a high silica content. It can help stimulate hair growth, by improving circulation and aiding hair follicles. The silica content can also help rejuvenate your hair, adding shine and strengthening the hair shaft.
Rosemary Essential Oil has been widely used as a hair thickener, to aid hair growth. It works by increasing circulation to the scalp and stimulating the roots.
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.
