Lavender + Rosemary, relaxing and refreshing. This blend helps to combat dandruff, improve scalp health and promote hair growth.
The shampoo bar is handmade using the cold process method. They each have their own, unique blend of skin loving plant and nut oils.
In this bar they have added Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, as it is close to your hairs natural PH. Using it topically helps hair follicles to lie flat, softening the hair and creating a natural shine. Rapeseed Oil is a light oil that penetrates deep into the hair shaft, moisturising from the inside out. Mango Butter, a deeply nutritious and moisturising oil keeps hair healthy, allowing it to repair while promoting growth. Organic Rosemary Infused Extra Olive Oil is full of antioxidants to fight free radicals, and the infused Rosemary encourages hair growth.
No Parabens, Artificial Colours
To use the shampoo bar just wet your hair thoroughly and rub the bar over your head until you create a nice frothy lather. If your bar is new you might want to use a flannel to help ‘break the seal’. Wash your hair as normal and pat dry before adding conditioner.
Because commercial detergent shampoo strips your hair of its natural oils, your scalp has to produce excess oil to compensate. This means that there is often an adjustment period after swapping to a natural shampoo. During this period your hair may feel greasy or heavy, however this should pass after a week or so when your hair has rebalanced its oil production. (This period may take longer if you have chemically treated hair).
There is also the problem of product build up from commercial shampoos and conditioners which often contain waxes, synthetic silicones, and silica that coat your hair, to make it "feel" nice, but leave a residue in your hair.
