"Hair washing without a Bottle? Try a Shampoo Bar!"
If you haven’t read my bittersweet hair history, you can read more at this post: Embrace Yourself!
The best advice that I can pass onto you it that regular shampoos are entirely too harsh for most hair. Curly and Wavy hair in particular needs its natural oils or sebum to give the hair weight and hold in moisture.
A great alternative to conditioner washing or co-washing, is by using a gentler form of shampoo. With a gentler natural shampoo, one that can mildly cleanse without stripping. Look for shampoos that contain moisturizing ingredients such as jojoba oil, babassu oil, olive oil, or mango butter. Sounds pretty good doesn’t it?
I have come across two such gentle emollient shampoos. But they don’t come in a bottle. The are called Shampoo Bars, and they offer something different and can provide something really unique to your hair.
Pros: It cleans your hair without removing all its natural oils and leaves hair manageable. Gentle on your scalp. Is great for washing hair, and can be used as your soap and shaving cream as well!
Price: $5.95 for a 4.5 ounce bar (should last you a month), and if you purchase 6 bars of any Herbaria soaps, you will get the 7th free.
Using a shampoo bar as an alternative to regular shampoo is something you will have to experience. Usually after using a traditional shampoo my hair would feel squeaky clean, after using a shampoo bar, I definitely noticed a different feel to the hair, it felt clean, but mildly coated and slightly tacky in its texture. Jojoba Oil is actually a natural wax.
