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.
Oat Kernel Flour is full of essential fatty acids and has skin soothing properties. It is packed with antioxidants which make it nourishing for sensitive and damaged skin, relieving itching.
Panthenol is also known as pro-vitamin B5, a strengthening and moisturising conditioner for the hair. It acts as a humectant, absorbing moisture from the air and penetrates deep into the hair shaft, improving resistance to mechanical stress. It also has anti-inflammatory properties which make it soothing for sensitive or irritated skin.
Calendula has been known for generations as an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and soothing herb that can help alleviate a range of skin conditions.
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.
