This small batch, natural shampoo bar is made using only coconut, olive and castor oils for a gentle cleanse and plenty of shine. It has oils left over from the saponification process to ensure your hair is left soft, silky and lustrous after washing without greasiness. The lavender and rosemary essential oils are also beneficial for both scalp and hair health.
It is coloured naturally with an infusion of ground alkanet root (Alkanna tinctoria), which has been used for centuries in India to naturally condition and colour hair (this shampoo bar won’t colour your hair). It is perfect followed up with my conditioner bar and/or a vinegar rinse (see below).
Each 100g bar is made with coconut, olive and castor oils, filtered water, sodium hydroxide*, alkanet root, indigo leaf, activated charcoal, lavender & rosemary essential oils & love. No nasties, just the good stuff.
“My favourite shampoo bar ever!” Sarah.
“So gentle on my hair and skin, no irritation at all. Silky locks every time.” Fiona.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
As with all shampoo bars (hair soap), a diluted vinegar rinse (approx 1 part vinegar : 5 parts water, or as desired) after washing is recommended to restore the pH of the hair to neutral. Alternatively, my conditioner bar can also be used (with or without the vinegar rinse).
If you haven’t used a shampoo bar before, it may take a few washes to remove the chemical build up from commercial shampoos, but don’t give up – your hair (and the environment) will thank you for making the change.
To store handmade soap before using, please ensure you keep it somewhere dry. While using please store on a well drained soap dish or shelf and allow it to dry out between uses for maximum longevity. Ask for a free pumice stone at checkout, they make a perfect soap stand.
Please note: All soaps are handmade and cut in small batches so variations will occur in appearance, however each bar still contains all the fantastic ingredients listed. I am not making any medical claims regarding this product, just letting you know what the ingredients are capable of.
