To use the shampoo bar effectively, start by gently rubbing the wet bar directly onto wet hair to apply the shampoo. Massage the hair and scalp until a rich lather forms. It's important not to underestimate the lathering ability of the shampoo bar. Begin with a few strokes and repeat as needed to build up lather. You can refer to our step-by-step guide on YouTube for visual instructions.
While some users choose to rub the shampoo bar between their hands or in a net to create lather, my personal preference is to gently rub the bar directly onto the hair. Feel free to experiment with both methods and determine which one works best for you.
As the shampoo bar gets thinner with use, it's ideal to place the thin bar in the center of your curved palm for easier application. Challenge yourself to see how thin the bar can go before it breaks!
Once the bar is broken, you can place it in a net to generate lather until its last use.
For proper storage, it is recommended to place shampoo bars on a well-ventilated silicone dish with grooves between uses. This practice helps prevent the constant contact of the shampoo bar with water, preventing it from becoming soft and ensuring a longer lifespan for the product.
Absolutely, our shampoo bars are generally suitable for all hair types. We've crafted them using a blend of plant-based ingredients, delivering powerful (but not harsh) cleansing along with emollient properties. The formulation is designed to closely match the natural pH of both the scalp and hair, significantly reducing the risk of irritation. Specifically tailored for the local hot and humid climate, our shampoo bars boast enhanced cleansing capabilities to leave users feeling light, fresh, and thoroughly cleansed after each use. Additionally, different bars are enriched with various ingredients or essential oils to cater to specific hair needs.
Every shampoo bar we create is crafted not just for cleansing but also to safeguard your hair. Each formulation incorporates protective elements like shea butter and almond oil, precisely added to counteract any potential irritation from cleansing agents. This ensures a healthier scalp and hair. Additionally, these protective ingredients contribute to softening, detangling, and moisturizing your hair.
SLSa, or Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, is different from SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate). While they share a similar name, SLSa is a milder, plant-derived alternative. It provides effective cleansing with less risk of irritation, making it a gentler choice for hair care. SLS, on the other hand, can be more stripping and potentially harsh on hair. Our products prioritize the use of SLSa for a milder and more hair-friendly cleansing experience.
It's not uncommon to experience a transition period when switching to shampoo bars, where your hair might feel different initially. Unlike many commercial liquid shampoos that use sulfates to provide a temporary soft and smooth feeling, our shampoo bars prioritize long-term hair health. Sulfates in liquid shampoos can strip the hair of its natural oils, leading to a quick but often short-lived softness. Our plant-based shampoo bars, however, focus on effective cleansing without harsh sulfates, promoting the natural balance of oils for healthier, nourished hair over time. If your hair feels dry initially, give it some time to adjust, and you may notice the long-term benefits of our sulfate-free formulation.
