A shampoo bar is a totally different product dan liquid shampoo. As a result, most people go through a 'set-in period', during which the hair and scalp gradually adjust to the soap. In general such a period lasts from 2 to 4 weeks, sometimes a little longer. If you hair continues to feel very oily, it can help to wash your hair twice during one showerturn in the starting period of your use of a shampoo bar. Rinsin with apple cidre vinegar can also be very helpful during the transition period. In this blog you can find more information about rinsing with apple cidre vinegar.
Even after the transition period, my hair feels completely different, why is that?
Most liquid shampoos contain sulfates and silicones. Sulfates are (very hard) cleaners that strip your scalp not only for dirt and grease, but also from the fats that your scalp produces naturally and needs. Silicones then ensures that there is a layer around you hair, making your hair feel healthy, smooth and soft. We emphasize that it feels that way because underneath that layer your hair itself doesn't necessarily have to be healthy.
Our shampoo bar cleanses in a much milder way; some of the fats and oils are being washed away, but not all of it. Next to this our shampoo bars are rich in glycerine and caring oils that nourish the hair. This, together with the lack of silicones, makes your hair feel different, even after the adjustment period.
Even after two months, my hair still stays oily after washing it.. now what?Z
Every's hair and scalp are different, sometimes it just doesn't match! Luckily our shampoo bars are also perfectly suitable to use as nourishing shower- and hand soaps.
