An extra nourishing shampoo bar with silky shea butter and macadamia oil for added luster and shine 80g
The subtle fragrance is reminiscent of earthy patchouli with a splash of mint. Inspired by warm Moroccan evenings and deep cleansing Hammams!
Gorgeous essential oils of spearmint, lavender & patchouli soften the hair and have a cooling anti-bacterial action on the scalp, keeping it flake free.
Castor and coconut oil give a lovely fluffy lather to the bar, they naturally deep cleanse without stripping the hair of it's vital oils.
Hemp is a light oil which easily penetrates the hair shaft conditioning the hair without weighing it down. Olive oil moisturizes the hair and is gentle on the scalp. I have added organic molasses to this recipe which gives body and shine to the hair as well as extra lather to the bar. DL panthenol which is also known as vitamin B5, penetrates and coats the hair shaft. It repairs and protects the hair. I add citric acid to my shampoo bars to adjust the PH, making them more hair friendly! Absolutely free from SLES, SLS, parabens, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrance & preservatives.
It can take several washes for your hair to become accustomed to the bar and go through a detox (after conventional shampoos). This is because synthetic shampoos strip the hair of its natural oils, your hair gets used to this treatment and then tries to over compensate by producing more oil. It takes time for the natural balance to return. The picture above is of my hair, it took 4 weeks for my hair to 'transition', I am so glad that I was patient!
>>My scalp is now flake free, my hair is soft and shiny with more body and curl. LOVE IT<<
Directions For use *Work up a good lather by rubbing the bar between your hands or directly onto the scalp. It is important to rinse hair thoroughly after use. To give your hair a chance to adjust do not wash hair every day. Shampoo bars are best used every 3-4 days, especially during the 'Transition' period.
If you are familiar with using shampoo bars than you may have tried an Apple Vinegar rinse? This finishes off the treatment beautifully and I find with this there is no need to use a conditioner. Simply add a glug of Apple Cider Vinegar (stocked in all health food shops) to some cool water. Use this as the final rinse and leave it in. The subtle vinegar smell disappears as soon as the hair drys. The cider vinegar has the perfect PH for the scalp and hair. It smooths the hair shaft and works as a detangler.
AYURVEDA TIP *The scalp and the brain prefer to be kept cool! Hair should be washed with warm water and rinsed with cool water. Cold water tones the scalp and refreshes the nervous system.
