If you ever considered coming back to the roots and use pure hair products with no artificial colour, fragrances, SLS, parabens, etc. - this shampoo bar is a nice point to start off.
A special blend of oils and butters were selected to create a soap that cleanses well without any further product build-up on the hair.
The recipe is a concentrate of wild nettle sustainably collected in an ecologically pure place. Not only does nettle help in combating hair loss, but it also helps in hair re-growth. Nettle leaves are rich in silica and sulfur. This helps in making hair shinier and healthier.
The soap naturally has a slightly alkaline pH, which opens up the hair scales, so that an acidic rinse needed to close them up:
- 2 TB spoons apple vinegar for 1 cup of warm water. Personally, I prepare a pitcher of water with a splash of the vinegar before heading to the shower, which does not take more than a minute.
You may choose not to rinse, but I like the smoothness and shine of the hair after one.
Application: massage the soap onto the damp hair, massage the scalp, rinse with water, repeat. Use Wild Nettle Conditioner or a conditioner of your choice if needed.
Please be advised the soap is an "alive" product and continues to cure with time. The more moisture it loses - the more long-lasting the bar becomes. It also means the weight of a bar may change with time, and I weigh the soap right after cutting.
Keep the bar on a well-drained surface to prolong its use.
