Directions for Use:
1. Soak your hair thoroughly in warm water so it is completely saturated. The wetter your hair is, the easier it is to get lots of suds.
2. Get your shampoo bar wet in the shower before use, warm it up in your hand by lathering before rubbing it over hair.
3. Rub the bar on the top of your head, run a little warm water from the shower at the same time to help create more lather.
How quickly this happens depends on the thickness of your hair and the quality of tap water in your area.
4. Massage your scalp and finally rinse hair thoroughly.
5. Dry your shampoo bar after use. (the bar will last 3 times longer). Either place your bar in a zip-lock bag or airtight tin to keep fresh.
The general census for solid shampoo bars is that it can take around 5 washes for your hair to adjust to the change in your regular routine, but from experience, most would agree it’s worth the effort for the end benefits, not only for healthier, stronger hair, but also for the decreased impact on our environment.
