A simple, all-natural shampoo bar crafted with coconut oil and select hair-friendly essential oils to clean and moisturize the hair and scalp, without leaving it feeling heavy or greasy.
Because soap is alkaline and hair prefers a more acidic environment, a vinegar rinse is recommended to keep the hair's pH in balance. The rinse also acts as a conditioner, smoothing the cuticle and making hair soft and shiny. The vinegar can be rinsed out, but is not necessary.
Suggested ratio is 3 parts water to 1 part vinegar, adjust accordingly.
If switching from conventional shampoo, there is a detoxing transition period, in which your hair may not look or feel it's best. Using the vinegar rinse will help with this transition (so will a hat!)
Not recommended for color treated hair.
Our all-natural soaps/shampoo bars are handcrafted (this batch was made via hot process) and hand cut, therefore there will be variations. Weight is 4+ ounces.
We do not use colorants or fragrance oils, so be aware that the soap does not have the strong smell and coloring associated with such.
As with most handcrafted soaps, this shampoo bar should be allowed to air dry between uses.
Coconut Oil is a natural moisturizer for both skin and hair, is rich in antioxidants, is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. It moisturizes deeply and is easily absorbed into your skin. It also helps to strengthen underlying tissues and helps remove excessive dead cells on the skin’s surface that makes your skin rough and flaky in texture. Its natural combination of fatty acids keeps skin moisturized and healthy, so it can both protect and repair itself.
