The rich creamy lather of this soap will leave your hair fresh, clean and moisturised. Great for everyday use and travelling.
Directions: Wet hair thoroughly, rub the bar 2-3 times over top of your head, lather up so there are lots of bubbles, rinse VERY well and repeat if required. Very few people will need to use a conditioner post-wash.
Ingredients: Coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil, soybean oil, water, sodium hydroxide (none left in final product), kaolin clay, Vanilla planifolia essential oil (see note below). Vegan.
Weight: at least 100g
Note: The vanilla we use in this bar is a cosmetic grade oil, it is still 100% natural. Here is the information from the supplier: “Cosmetic grade essential oils are made by mixing natural isolates from therapeutic grade essential oils. The resulting oil is also natural but is made cheaper by using isolates from cheaper plants.”

Transition phase: When beginning to use soap as a shampoo it can take time for your hair to adjust due to residual chemicals from commercial shampoos. This transition phase can take anywhere from one to eight weeks as your hair adjusts and the natural oils balance out. It is normal to experience lank, heavy, slightly greasy hair at first. This WILL pass! Using an acidic rinse of 1T of apple cider vinegar to 1c of warm water after washing can help (leave in hair, vinegar smell will go when hair dries) . Personally, it took about a month until my hair felt normal again … but now I don’t even need a conditioner and my hair is soft and shiny. Again, results will vary from person to person.
