Hair bars are all-natural shampoo in a solid bar that cleans your hair naturally. This by far is the number one reason to make the switch to Hair Soaps and Conditioner Bars. The ingredients gently clean the hair and scalp without stripping away natural protective oils.
The bars are more concentrated than traditional shampoos and conditioners, so you can use less per application and they will last longer. This is especially true with proper care (do not leave your bars soaking in water, and don’t store them in a travel tin for any length of time). I store them on a soap dish with drainage, so the water runs away. This has significantly reduced the amount of clutter in the shower and uses a lot less plastic.
They are also great to travel with as you don’t have to worry about any potential for spillage or liquid restrictions. These bars don’t require plastic packaging, so they are much better for the environment than their bottled counterparts.
I hope this gives you a good sense of some of the benefits that come from switching over to solid shampoo bars and conditioner bars.

Bentonite Clay with Lotus White Tea: for Normal Hair Types

Blending luxurious Shea, Cocoa, and Mango butters, this Conditioner Soap is specially designed to nourish the hair. Mango and Cocoa butter are renowned for their restorative moisturizing benefits, while the Shea butter provides strength.
Shea butter is made from the nut of the karite tree, which is found in central Africa. It’s used in many natural hair and skin products because it helps moisturize and strengthen hair and skin.
Mango butter has an abundance of antioxidants and vitamins, which makes the butter moisturising for your hair. The more you use natural mango butter on your hair, the faster it will be for your hair to start recapturing its natural oils and you can achieve thicker and fuller hair. It will also add shine and reduce hair breaking from split ends.
Cocoa butter is a natural emollient, so has a lot of benefits! It moisturises your hair and makes it more manageable; strengthens the hair shaft and adds volume and strength to fine hair; replenishes oils lost due to chemical processes; repairs and prevents damaged hair strands.
When you begin, your hair or scalp may feel oily or dry or even switch between the two extremes. You may have increased tangles or frizz and the hair shafts may feel weird or waxy. This is because your hair (which has been addicted to chemical-laden shampoo), is literally starting to freak out, going through a withdrawal process, and learning to live a chemical-free life. It’s not easy! This process takes approx. 7-10 days to complete.
It will go away! It may take some patience, but if you can persevere, your reward will be healthy, soft, and silky hair.
How to use:
Change Your Shampooing Technique: The “weird hair” feeling happens most often when the soap residue does not completely rinse out of your hair. Be sure to work up a good lather and rinse, rinse, rinse. You might find it helpful, to take a wide toothed comb/brush into the shower with you, especially in the beginning.
By rubbing the bar directly on your hair, you can get a great lather, or you could use a puff or a sponge to create foam.
This is VERY important! Several people have mentioned that their hair feels greasy after using conditioner soap bars. If so, then they are using way too much!
How to use:
These are butter-based conditioner soap bars that should last a long time. They are designed to condition and moisturise at the same time. After washing and rinsing your hair with a soap bar, rub conditioner bar between your hands to get a light layer on both hands.
You need only put a little onto your hands and start to work into the ends of your hair.
Then continue by massaging through the rest of your hair. This will keep most of the oils at the ends of your hair where it is needed but will also condition the rest of your hair.
As you spread into your hair, take care to avoid hair around your face until last (because that hair usually becomes oily first).
Always use warm to hot water to rinse your hair. This will make sure it spreads throughout your hair with the hot water ensuring it is spread evenly.
Towel dry, brush, and you are ready to go!
