The main ingredients of this shampoo bar are castor oil and rice bran oil: both known to be great for hair to increase hair growth and decrease hair loss, fighting scalp infections and dandruff, help smooth rough hair cuticles and is naturally very conditioning. Rice bran oil is said to help prevent premature greying. Cedarwood, lavender, and tea tree essential oils are added for a refreshing, relaxing scent. Vegan-friendly. Approximately 5 ounces.
Eliminates the need for a one-time use of plastic bottles. The bar comes in a reusable biodegradable cotton bag. Another step in reducing waste.
Directions: Simply wet your hair then gently brush the shampoo bar directly onto your hair just a few times. Lather up well. If you need more lather, add more water before adding more shampoo. A little shampoo goes a long way. As an alternative, wet your hair, lather the shampoo bar in your hands. Set aside bar and apply the lather to your hair. Repeat as necessary. Depending on your water and type of hair you may or may need a conditioner or rinse.
If you have hard water, you may choose to use a simple apple cider vinegar rinse or follow up with a homemade flaxseed gel which acts as a leave-in conditioner as well as a styling gel. These bars will last a long time if kept dry between uses and are kept out of direct streams of water. Keep on a draining soap dish.
NOTE: Your hair typically goes through a transition period when switching to natural shampoo. This usually lasts 1 to 2 weeks depending on how often you wash your hair. During this time, your scalp is detoxing, which may result in oily feeling hair. If you allow your scalp to complete the detox process, you will see beautiful results. Continue the natural shampoo during this process. Try washing your hair only 2 times a week if possible.
