This small batch, natural shampoo bar is made using only coconut, olive and castor oils for a great cleanse and shiny locks. It has oils left over from the saponification process to ensure your hair is left soft, shiny and silky after washing.
It will work beautifully on all hair types but is more suited to normal-oily hair. The lemony, lime and tea tree essential oils are refreshing and will help control oiliness as well as hopefully help repel nits (especially useful for children). Perfect followed up with my conditioner bar or a vinegar rinse (see below).
Each 100g bar is made with: coconut, olive (infused with annatto seed for colour) and castors oils, plus filtered water and sodium hydroxide*, lemongrass, lime, orange & tea tree essential oils & love.
* None remains in final product
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. I am not making any medical claims regarding this product
