How to use a Shampoo Bar: a step-by-step guide
A small step for you, a great step against plastic pollution
We hope you are ready to join the exciting world of plastic-free shampoos. Not only shampoo bars avoid the waste produced by 2 to 3 bottles
of plastic, but they also reduce the Co2 production caused by transportation (less weight = less fuel consumed).
Solid shampoos are the newest hair care trend that hooked many Americans from the first try. Not only will you have great hair,
but you will also feel a sense of pride knowing that you pollute less.
A short transition period
When you switch from classic shampoo to a bar, there is a transition period that may take 3 to 5 days.
During this period, your hair will appear a bit more oily than usual. This is because your scalp is used to be stripped of its sebum
every day. After this adaptation period, your hair will get accustomed to shampoo bar foam.
Be patient and give your shampoo bar a chance. You will be rewarded with stronger, shinier, and healthier hair after just one week of use.
How to use your Shampoo Bar
- Wet your hair and palms
- Lather the bar in your hands for 15 seconds
- Put your shampoo bar down in its dedicated storage
- Massage well the lather into your roots
- Do not pile your hair on top of your head to lather: it is a source of unwanted tangles
- If you have long hairs, you can run the bar down their length
- Rinse your hair
- Repeat the “lather + massage + rinse” steps for a more vigorous wash (if you have oily hair)
- Apply conditioner if needed, especially if you have dry hair

hair in a towel after applying your hair mask.
