How to use a Shampoo Bar
Shampoo bars have a rich foamy lather that makes them easy to use. Wet your hair, then massage the bar against your hair to form a rich lather. Rub the lather into your scalp then rinse thoroughly. You can then repeat the process if necessary.
A shampoo bar will last a long time if you look after it. Air dry it after use, or use a draining soap dish to extend life. You will be amazed!!
Please don’t use your shampoo bar just once or twice and decide you don’t like it – you need to give the bar a week to rid your hair of old residues from your commercial shampoo. Then you will notice your hair feeling different and you’ll be truly pleased and amazed at the results.
Please remember, this is soap and will sting if it gets in your eyes.
Apple Cider Vinegar – Natural Hair Rinse
When used regularly in your natural hair care routine, apple cider vinegar can revitalize your hair, leaving it soft, smooth and also works great as a natural detangler. The vinegar works by closing the cuticle of the hair, which makes light reflect off of it. In other words, it makes your hair super shiny!
- 1 Tbs apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup water
Simply mix the apple cider vinegar and water together. After shampooing, pour the mixture into your hair. If you have a spray bottle, that works even better. That way you can spritz your hair with the mixture and massage it into your scalp. Let the apple cider vinegar concoction sit for a few minutes. Now you have a few choices. You may rinse it all out if you want, or leave the rinse on your hair, or rinse a little. Leaving the vinegar rinse on your hair helps prevent tangles in long hair. Since the vinegar restores natural pH it also helps prevent an itchy scalp. Don’t worry about the slight vinegar smell you will notice after rinsing. It will disappear completely as your hair dries.
There are many wonderful essential oils for hair care.
A way to enhance the hair conditioning effect of apple cider vinegar is to add a small amount of essential oil to your vinegar mix.
