To help you get the quickest answer to your query, take a look at our most frequently asked questions about our shampoo bars. If you can’t find the information please contact us by email.
HOW DO I USE A SHAMPOO BAR?
Stroke the solid shampoo down your hair a few times to lather it up or rub the bar between your hands to create a lather. Gently massage it into the scalp and hair, as you would with a liquid shampoo. Leave the bars out to air dry - we recommend leaving it on well drained soap dish.
DO SOUL AND SOAP SHAMPOO BARS CONTAIN SLS?
Our shampoo bars are SLS free and contain the gentler surfactant - Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate. It is a safe, skin friendly cleanser that offers rich lather without the irritation potential of some of the other good foamers. Because the molecular size of this surfactant is large it doesn't penetrate the skin, or the mucous membranes, so it does not cause the skin irritation.
ARE THE ALUMINIUM TINS RECYCLABLE?
Our aluminium tins are quick and easy to be recycled, they can be reprocessed again and again without loss of quality. Aluminium tins are actually more sustainable material than cardboard. The production of aluminium tins is one the most environmentally friendly process.
IF I CHOOSE NO TIN PACKAGING WHAT DO THE SOLID SHAMPOO BARS COME WRAPPED IN?
If you choose them without packaging they come in environmentally friendly and 100% biodegradable glassine bags.
ARE YOU SHAMPOO BARS PARABEN FREE?
Yes our shampoo bars are entirely paraben free!
DO I STILL NEED A CONDITIONER?
Our shampoo bars contain lots of hair moisturising oils so you don't really need a conditioner, but that really depends on your hair and why you’ve been using conditioner. Shampoos bought in chain stores often contain synthetic ingredients that are drying to the hair and require conditioner to replenish the hair and scalp. Our natural shampoo bars do not strip the natural oils from the hair and the oils work to nourish your hair and scalp. You may find there is no need to add additional conditioners.
ARE YOU SHAMPOO BARS SAFE FOR COLOUR TREATED HAIR?
Our shampoo bars are free of sulfates and detergents that doesn't strip the hair colour. However, due to everyones hair and coloring products being different it's always a good idea to do a strand test in order to make a judgement call.
ARE YOU SHAMPOO BARS SUITABLE FOR CURLY HAIR?
Our shampoo bars are great for curly hair. Ours is formulated to work beautifully with any hair type.
HOW LONG WILL ONE BAR LAST?
That depends largely on how and how much you use it and how long is your hair. Typically one shampoo bar replaces 1-2 bottles of shampoo. Also it's important to leave you bar on the soap dish or somewhere where it has a good drainage.
HOW ARE YOU SHAMPOO BARS IN HARD WATER?
We only had good feedback about using our shampoo bars in hard water! Our customers have said that our shampoo bars lather well and rinse well in hard water.
CAN I USE YOUR PRODUCTS WHILE PREGNANT?
If pregnant or nursing we suggest contacting your doctor and ask information about what products are safe for you to use as some essential oils are not considered safe to use while pregnant.
