Castor oil has been used for centuries as a natural hair conditioner and scalp treatment. This has been combined with coconut oil and olive oil to produce a rich, moisturising lavender tea tree shampoo bar.
The essential oils of lavender and tea tree are favoured for their antibacterial qualities and promoting healthy hair growth.
A long-lasting and compact alternative to plastic bottles of liquid shampoo, one Friendly lavender tea tree shampoo bar will last as long as three bottles of liquid shampoo. And it loves to travel.
Each lavender tea tree shampoo bar is handmade with Castor Oil, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Lavender and Tea Tree essential oils, water. And nothing else.
All Friendly Soaps are Free from Palm Oil, Parabens, Sulphates, Triclosan, Phthalates and Cruelty, as well as being boxed in plastic free recycled (and recyclable) packaging. Friendly Soaps are also registered with The Vegan Society, Cruelty Free International and have a Best rating with Ethical Consumer.
Each bar weighs 95g
Instructions: Run the shampoo bar over your head in one direction (front to back), as to avoid causing unnecessary knots. Once you have a good amount of shampoo on top of your head, massage it into my scalp with your fingers. Rinse with water until ALL the shampoo is out… Done!
Transition to a Natural Shampoo
There is a transition when you switch from the standard chemical shampoos to a natural shampoo bar, commonly called ‘the purge’. When you first begin, your hair or scalp may become oily or dry or a bit of back and forth between the two. Your hair may feel frizzy or waxy like there is a residue still left over in your hair. Don’t panic, this is just your hair adjusting, your scalp needs time to re-balance oil production. It usually lasts about a week (depending on how damaged your hair is) and it will go away. Stick with it, once your hair has adjusted it will feel softer, cleaner and more manageable. This is because shampoo bars CLEAN and CONDITION your hair and scalp without stripping it of its natural sebum. If you have dandruff problems, you may find this clears up because your scalp is not getting dried out and your body is no longer reacting to the chemicals.
