Fair & Square Shampoo BarFair & Square Soapery
A luxurious dense lathering soap with loads of hair loving essential oils, this bar is a real natural treat for your skin, scalp and hair. You can use it on your face and body too, so it's a great all-in-one travel/camping kit!
This is a special recipe with kukui nut oil, jojoba and loads of Shea butter alongside the usual coconut, olive and avocado. It's super smooth and your hair will love it. ⠀
If you are thinking of changing to a natural solid shampoo bar, be aware that your hair will need to go through a transition back to its natural state which can cause a few bad hair days. (It's like coming off an addictive drug... those first few weeks aren't too pretty - but once clean you'll never want to go back!). Commercial shampoos are laden with silicones and other chemicals that coat every hair on your head and these take a while to wash/wear away.
Personally, I find that I don't need to use conditioner now that I have ditched the bottled shampoo. I like to do a vinegar rinse every couple of weeks, which leaves my hair lovely and soft and shiny. I use 2 Tbsp vinegar (white wine or apple cider) in 1L warm water and rinse through after shampooing.
Handmade soap needs a little more care than its chemical-laden counterparts. As it is full of all the natural oils, it needs to be well drained when using. The less of the soap touching a flat, wet surface – the better, so choose a good soap dish.
When you are storing your soap (before using), put somewhere dry. Don’t store in a damp bathroom. Many of my customers enjoy storing their soap in their clothes draws, using them to infuse their lovely scents into their clothes. Or cut a slice off and hang in a muslin bag in your car, the scent will last for ages and you will always have an emergency bar of soap if needed on the road!
