Shampoo Bar Zero Waste and Plastic Free
We have been working on our shampoo Bar recipe for 3 years and I finally feel good releasing it since it has been tested and reviewed by many of our family members and friends. We started by trying a cold process soap shampoo bar but I found it to be harsh on my hair and discovered that it was due to a high PH. I researched Syndet bars and tried different combinations of ingredients to try to be as natural as possible but provide the cleansing needed.
With shorter hair, the bar is easy to use, just lather up and rinse. With Longer Hair, you lather at the scalp only and rinse and follow with conditioner on the ends of the hair only followed by another thorough rinsing.
If stored properly on a draining soap dish, this 2.5 oz. bar will last at least 40 Washes.
