cold-process shampoo bar soap
This is a bar of cold-process soap formulated for hair and NOT like most shampoo bars on the market
PLEASE READ FIRST: Almost all Shampoo Bars on the market are synthetic detergent bars and not at all a soap product. They do work fabulous - even in Alberta's hard water - but the main ingredient is usually Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI), Sodium Coco Sulfate and/or Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate which reduce surface tension and create great lather! Synthetic chelators are also added which adhere to the minerals in hard water. This bar has none of that stuff and none of my products ever will! The lather from this soap is created from Hemp Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Castor Oil and GF Beer!
Oils are infused with hair-strengthening nettle, rosemary and horsetail so much so that they provide the green colour and scented with a blend of hair-loving Cedarwood, Rosemary, Lavender, Thyme and Tree Tree Essential Oils.
This soap is loaded with all-kinds of benefits for hair ... BUT, the caveat is that if used in hard water without any sort of rinse, the oil molecules will likely attach to the hard water minerals to form a heavy residue! UUGH!
Our Suggestion ... if you're not one of the lucky ones with a residential water softener, RINSE HAIR WELL and then rinse again with an Apple Cider Vinegar and Distilled Water blend. About one part ACV to 3-4 parts distilled water. I make up a jug and keep it in the vanity. TURN OFF THE SHOWER BEFORE YOU DO THE FINAL ACV/DISTILLED RINSE FOR BEST RESULTS!
If this hasn't totally scared you away, the awesome ingredients are: Saponified Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Gluten-Free Lager, Cocoa Butter, Jojoba Oil; Rosemary, Lavender, Tea Tree, Thyme & Cedarwood Essential Oils, Nettle, Horsetail and Rosemary herbs
