If you are new to shampoo bars, we have some tips. Commercial shampoo is basically a mix of chemicals designed to cheaply replicate the effects of real soap, which is more costly and time consuming to make. Unfortunately, they strip all of the scalp’s natural oils from your hair. These oils nourish and protect your hair and skin, so your scalp has to work twice as hard tring to maintain a healthy balance.
When you start using shampoo bars, they cleanse your hair rather than stripping it out. This can mean that there’s a slight transition period while your scalp adjusts to not having to over-produce, and it can leave hair slightly oily, dry, or waxy. To combat this, we recommend using a bicarb rinse of 1-2 teaspoons of sodium bicarbonate in 1/2 pint of warm water. Dampen your hair, then add your bicarb, then rinse, then wash with your bar as normal.
