3 Things might affect the performance of this natural shampoo bar
Our natural shampoo bars are not formulated for coloured hair so some may experience fading.
2. TREATED HAIR
Many treatments and dyes contain harsh chemicals that can strip the hair of natural oils. This may reset the purging process.
3. HARD WATER
Some areas of the UK have ‘hard water’ this can effect the length of the transition period and performance of our natural shampoo.
TIPS FOR AN EASY TRANSITION
Use an apple cider vinegar rinse (see below) instead of a conditioner, as this helps restore your scalp’s pH balance as well as banish old chemicals. It will also protect the shaft of each hair and give it a wonderful shine too.
Brush your hair gently and often – twice every day is good – brushing it from scalp to tips so you can help redistribute your hair’s natural oils.
Give your hair a few days off between washes, just to allow it to adjust.
Rinse your hair thoroughly whenever you wash it, to help make sure you get rid of every trace of shampoo.
Try using a bit of dry shampoo or corn starch if your hair is feeling oily, rubbing a small amount into your scalp before brushing it through.
To help calm any frizz or tangles, you can also try using a little argon oil through your hair.
If your hair has a lot of product built up in it, before you use the shampoo bar try the simple baking soda rinse we’ve detailed below.
Apple cider vinegar spritz
1 part apple cider vinegar (use the type with ‘mother of vinegar’)
4 parts water
A few drops of your favourite essential oil
Baking soda clarifying rinse recipe
Baking soda (or to give it it’s posh name, sodium bicarbonate) is an easy clarifier to use, and it helps lift grease and product residue from your hair.
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 – 2 cups of warm water
Combine these ingredients in a spray bottle or cup, then wet your hair, apply the rinse, and work it through. Now rinse your hair thoroughly with warm water, then shampoo it.
Washing your hair
Just run the shampoo bar over your head in one direction, from front to back. This will help you to avoid creating any pesky knots. Once you’ve a good amount of shampoo on your head, massage it into your scalp using your fingers (or if you’re owed a treat, ask your other half to). Now rinse your hair with water until every drop of shampoo is out. That’s it – you’re done.
