Natural, organic shampoos are wonderful and healthy. Since much of what we cleanse our bodies and hair with can be absorbed through our skin into our tissue, organs, and sometimes bloodstream, it is wise to use only natural, organic personal products, always.
But, transitioning from a commercial shampoo to a natural shampoo might take a little patience, and here is why. The synthetics in commercial shampoos artificially coat hair with plastic (or protein polymers) to make it look and feel soft, undamaged. Coating the hair with these plastics actually damage the hair. The more damaged the hair, the more porous it becomes; the more porous it becomes, the more it absorbs these plastics. And, until these plastics are completely washed out of our hair, our hair may feel a little “heavy” or “greasy”. A little less than “ideal.” This is caused by the plastics still slinging to the hair. It is at this time you’ll realize how synthetics attached and damaged our beautiful hair. But, this is, in fact, the beginning of healing and restoring our hair to its natural beauty.
Some people experience very little less-than-ideal hair time. Some may experience a little more. Either way, plastics damage skin and hair and need to be removed.
To rid your hair of the synthetics and over-production of oils, shampoo with the shampoo bar, then use a water and apple cider vinegar rinse (formula below) to help rinse out the synthetics. Continue using the shampoo bar daily followed by the water and apple cider vinegar rinse until the “heaviness” from synthetics is washed away. The wait is worth it! And as new healthy hair grows to replace any damaged hair, you’ll probably be amazed at the difference.
Our shampoo bars use herbs to strengthen roots, prevent breakage, add volume, shine, encourage regrowth, and help with dandruff. We believe you’ll love them as much as we do!
