I was a bit skeptical of using what appears to be just another fancy bar of soap for shampoo, but I gave it a try and have never gone back to bottled stuff. The bar lathers easily, smells delightful, and leaves my hair without a need for conditioner. I think the fewer products one uses, the better, so I highly recommend this fragrant shampoo bar.
Shampoo Bar - Honey Almond
Finally, an all natural solid shampoo bar! This lovely bar is loaded with moisturizing Georgia Wildflower Honey, Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil, known for being rich in vitamin E, carotenes, antioxidants and essential fatty acids to make hair shiny and soft. And great for your skin too! It's the perfect all over bar. The perfect sustainable solution for camping, gym, or traveling on vacation.
Some things to know about our shampoo bars. A liquid detergent shampoo is very good at cleaning your hair, so good, it also strips your hair of natural oils, but they also deposit residue. (Have you ever noticed your favorite shampoo works better if you switch it up sometimes?) Our shampoo bars don't strip the hair, but instead leave those natural oils on your scalp. Typically it takes our customers about a week for your hair to 'get used' to your new cleansing method.
Here are a few tips to help get you on the way to chemical free and lovely locks!
1. Lather. Rinse. Repeat. No seriously! Washing your hair the first time gets rid of the dirt and excess oils. That second lather is important to completely cleanse the hair.
2. Rinse VERY well. Remember, this isn't a chemcial. A good rinse is very important to get all of the soap out of your hair.
3. About once a week, our customers have that an Apple Cider Vinegar rinse helps to close the cuticle of the hair and keep it shiny. Mix 1/4 cup to 1 cup of apple cider vinegar with about 12-16 ounces of water. Experiment to find a dilution that works best for you (if you have dry hair, use a little less vinegar and oily hair use a little more).
4. Finally, check your water type. If you have very hard water, you may find it better to rinse your hair in distilled water or a very light apple cider vinegar rinse.
I had used the same shampoo for years, but was never truly content with the results. I would switch every once in a while only to throw it out and go back to my ok' reliable. I decided to try the bar shampoo after being pleased with all the other Indigo products I have used and found that I love it. I have well water and find that I have to do an apple cider vinegar rinse twice a week. My hair has decreased in frizz, is much softer, and is all around more manageable.
