Questions answered by our Shampoo Bar Maker:

What are shampoo bars made with?

They are made from vegetable and fruit oils, along with herbs, flower, seeds and fruits to provide care for your hair.

What is the difference between a soap bar and a shampoo bar?

Soap bars have skin loving ingredients and shampoo bars have hair loving ingredients. Shampoo bars have a higher percent of oils that produce more lather. Some soap bars have additives that I would not want in my hair. When I go on vacation, I only bring one shampoo bar and use it for both hair and body.

How do you use a shampoo bar?

Wet hair. Take the bar and rub it between your hands to start the lather. Rub the bar or the lather on your hair. Be sure that you really get a good lather. Use your fingertips and massage your scalp and rinse well. Repeat if you like. You might need a vinegar (or citric acid rinse). See below for more details. Dry and style your hair. You can wash your hair with natural shampoo bar every day, although I’ve trained my hair to be washed twice a week.

Is there an adjustment period for switching to a shampoo bar?

The hard part of the changing to using shampoo bars is finding the right way for you. Everyone is different. Many factors come into play.
First of all, shampoo bars do not strip away your natural oils. It might take time to transition before your hair is rid of the chemicals and residues from your prior hair products. Please, do not give up after a week. It took me about 3 weeks to see and feel the benefits. There were a few days of not very nice hair days!

Do I need to use a conditioner?

You will probably find that after using a shampoo bar and rinse that you no longer need to use conditioner. Since my hair is dry and wavy I find I still, at times, the need to use a conditioner. But, instead of a hand full, I now use less that a dime size and I do not rinse it out. You will need to experiment to find your perfect hair care.

What about a vinegar rinse?

Many factors account for whether or not use you need a rinse. If you have hard water you will need a rinse. If you find that your hair tangles easy you will need a rinse. After using the shampoo bar, your hair might feel different. Some describe it as feeling like straw or just sticky. This is because the alkaline level of your hair is raised, causing the shaft of your hair to stick out which causes tangles and the feeling that your hair is sticking together. For some people, this ‘feeling’ will go away when your hair dries. For the rest of us, we need to use an acidic rinse. An acidic rinse will help close the hair cuticle and prevent tangling. You can use vinegar, lemon juice or citric acid.

How do I make a vinegar rinse?

Mix about 1 tablespoon of vinegar (I prefer to use apple cider vinegar) or lemon juice in 1 cup of water. Pour the mixture over your hair. You can rinse or leave in. If using vinegar, the smell will go away when your hair dries. You will need to experiment how often you need to use a rinse.

How does hard water affect using shampoo bars?

If you have extremely hard water, you might not adjust to shampoo bars. You can get a water filter on your shower head or use a vinegar rinse (see above) to adjust for the hard water.

Can I use if I have colored or perm my hair?

Yes. The shampoo bar will not strip your hair as fast as commercial shampoos do. Everyone’s hair is different; I suggest that you do a strand test to find out how your color will react.

What’s the shelf life?

Soap bars do get better the longer they age. The longer they are left to cure, the longer they will last and will produce more lather. Using a soap dish that will keep your soap out of a puddle of water will prolong its life. I suggest using bar soap within one year of purchase.

    Didn't expect to like this shampoo, so loving it is a big surprise!

    I ordered the shampoo bar by mistake. I decided to give it a try. My fine, 62-year-old hair didn't seem to like it much, but I tried it again. My hair was better after that, and just keeps getting nicer. Great product! Thank you!

    Conditioner Needed

    The shampoo bar is easy to use and leaves the hair clean and shiny as well as fluffy which I like. My hair is gray and earlobe length. I tried it without conditioner the first time and had a problem with static when dry. I had to keep spraying my hair with water after brushing or combing, so it would lay down. I liked the feel of it and It was easy to comb, but was hoping I would not need to use conditioner. The next time I used a small amount of my usual conditioner, and it was better, but still need to be wetted down periodically. It is winter here, so I will have to wait until summer to find out if the humidity helps.

    Barbara,
    I would try apple cider vinegar every now and then after washing with the shampoo bar. It's an easy way to condition your hair and the smell of vinegar will go away quickly. Works like a charm!

    Shampoo

    I am very impressed with the shampoo bar. Lathers well and my hair feels so clean. My husband is allergic to quite a number of ingredients and he is able to use this (as well as the goat milk soap) with no issues. I love the that there are so few ingredients (all of which I can pronounce)!)

    HOLY COW it actually DOES work well!

    Having used a similar natural , minimal ingredient list, oil-based shampoo for my hair for the last decade, I wasn't feeling the need to try the Shampoo Bar. The concept sounded...well, a little weird. But, in an attempt to get over the free shipping threshold, I decided I'd finally try it. AND I'M SO GLAD I DID! It is simple enough to use and it left my hair feeling so soft and nourished. I have fairly curly hair and the Shampoo Bar is doing something great to my curls...I seem to barely need any product in my hair lately! Amazing! I am convinced...and I'm hooked :)

    Shampoo bar

    I currently use a shampoo bar from another company and love it. I wanted to try this one as I do like your products and wanted to switch. It really dried my hair out to where I thought it had been damaged. I have very fine hair so I think that is the reason. I’m using the bar now as a hand soap to see if it helps with very dry winter skin. It seems to help!
