Shampoo Bar scented with rosemary and lime essential oils and with a hair friendly PH of approximately 5. Bar size: 60g e. Vegan friendly ingredients.
Coloured pale blue so that if you decide to buy a conditioner bar as well, you won’t get them mixed up!
My recipe has been under development for many months and has been trialled on my family’s hair, including mine that is long, fine and colour treated. Shampoo bars are very long lasting, great to take camping and the gym and also to pack in your hand luggage. They cut down on the use of plastic bottles and are eco-friendly.
This is not soap shampoo. It is a Syndet bar made from the same ingredients you would find in your favourite liquid shampoo – such as Panthenol and detangling agents – but without the water. The bubble agents I have used are some of the mildest available on the market, in fact Sodium Cocoyl Isetheionate is known as ‘baby foam’ due to its exceptional mildness.
Shampoo bars can replace up to 3 bottles of liquid shampoo although the exact amount will vary depending on the number of times you wash your hair, its length and the hardness of your water.
Although I make cold process bar soap, I do not recommend the use of soap shampoo on your hair. You may think when you read the ingredients of natural soap shampoo that they will be good for your hair but in my opinion, this is not the case for the majority of hair types. The PH value will be too high and because of this, if you use a soap shampoo you really should rinse your hair with vinegar afterwards.
Syndet bars do not need you to rinse your hair with vinegar!
To use a shampoo bar: Run the bar under warm water to slightly soften then stroke it on wet hair or mix on your hands first. If you have softened water you will find you only need to stroke your hair a few times to produce a really good lather.
Repeat as necessary. Gently massage with your fingers and rinse. Suitable for all hair types from 3 yrs+. If irritation occurs, discontinue use.
