Top Tips For When Using Your Shampoo Bar
It is recommended to use an apple cider vinegar rinse after washing with a shampoo bar to make sure you’re completely rid of any shampoo, grease or product residue, and it will leave you with gorgeously shiny hair!
You can make your own rinse using water and apple cider vinegar at a 4:1 ratio. This will help re-establish your hair’s natural PH level.
Once you’ve washed your hair with the shampoo bar, spray the hair rinse on to your hair thoroughly from roots to ends and comb through, leave it for around 20 seconds and rinse out. Don’t worry, the vinegar scent disappears when your hair is dry!
There can be a transitional period when switching to shampoo bars while your hair and scalp adjust to the change, especially if you’ve been using commercial shampoos with synthetic ingredients. You should give shampoo bars at least a week to rid your hair of old residues, and because they don’t strip your hair in the same way as detergent based shampoos, your hair might feel different after washing.
For a few weeks your hair might feel greasier than usual, which is due to commercial shampoo stripping your hair of its natural protective oils and your scalp producing more oil to compensate. Your hair and scalp will need a transitional period to detox and re-balance.
If you live in a hard water area it is particularly important to rinse all of the shampoo from your hair. Again the best way to do this is to use an apple cider vinegar rinse after you’ve washed your hair with the shampoo bar.
Apple cider vinegar is also a natural remedy to treat dandruff.
