How to Transition to Solid Shampoo Bars

When transitioning to a solid shampoo bar, you may find that your hair feels different at first.  It may feel like a residue build up.  This is the reaction of the build up from all of your other hair products. By continuing to use of the shampoo bar from a few weeks to a month, the residue feeling goes away. Your hair will be softer, healthier, more manageable, and cleaner.  This is because shampoo bars clean and condition your hair without stripping your natural sebum. For those with scalp conditions, you may find that your scalp conditions clear up because it is no longer reacting to the chemicals from commercial shampoos.

Just any bar of soap is not recommended as a shampoo bar. The reason is the pH balance. Regular and luxury soaps are designed for the pH balance of your skin-not your hair. You will need to select a good pH balanced soap that is designed just for your hair. Everyone’s hair is unique to themselves. You may need to try several different types of solid shampoo soap before you find the one that is right for you. If you are still considering the transition, I can share two reasons that customers ask me for shampoo bars which is that it’s healthier for them, and it lasts a really long time.

Our bars are created to cleanse and nourish your scalp while softening and strengthening hair follicles. They provide a copious lather and gentle, quality, moisturizing care for your skin and scalp.


The method to use for washing your hair with a solid shampoo bar is as followed:

  1. Thoroughly wet your hair and the shampoo bar.

  2. Work a foamy lather in your hands. You may want to try a scrunchy or sponge to create the right amount of friction. Squeeze the lather onto the hair and scalp from the scrunchy or sponge or rub the lather from your hands into your hair and scalp.

  3. Gently massage the soap into the scalp and through the hair. Work up a really good lather. You may need to repeat the lather workup until you create the amount of lather that you desire.

  4. Rinse thoroughly until all the soap has been removed.

  5. Repeat the process. It is important to repeat the process because when you first shampoo your hair you are washing the soap lather with the dirt and oils that have accumulated. To repeat the shampoo process gives a more thorough cleaning without excess dirt and excess oil.

  6. Follow with your favorite solid conditioner bar.

 

For dry hair, it is recommended to use our organic jojoba oil or our organic argan oil. You can use it after you have blown your hair dry or while it’s still wet. Lightly rub a pea size amount into your hands. Then, gently run your hands over your hair starting from about half way down the hair shaft to the ends. This will add additional nutrients and shine.
