What size are the bars?
Each bar is at least 45gms in weight, sometimes more. These are hand made and hand cut. Therefore, they’re not all the same shape and size.
They’re not beautiful, but are very functional.
The bars are the perfect size to travel with, or to use for a week or two, and decide which one you prefer on your hair.
There is a transition period
When you move from commercial shampoo to natural shampoo it will take a while to adjust. It takes between one and six weeks for your hair to stop ‘freaking out’ so to speak. Stick with it! It will adjust.
Natural shampoo doesn’t strip your hair like some commercial shampoo can. Therefore, it won’t feel the same. It may feel like there’s product build up in your hair, or it may just feel different.
To help with this, maybe try an acid rinse. Mix a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with around 250mls of water. Once you’ve washed and rinsed your hair, tip this solution over your head, and leave for 1-2 minutes. Do this maybe twice a week for the first couple of weeks, then less as time goes on. This will prevent any build up of soap, and leave your hair shiny. This should also deter dandruff if this is an issue for you.
Which hair type is each bar suited to?
