Shampoo Bar - Maca & Grapefruit
Shampoo bars are very hip and trendy lately. Not only do they eliminate the need for plastic bottles and packaging, but because they’re solid, they’re also amazing for travel.
REGULAR SHAMPOO VS. NATURAL SHAMPOO
If you used to wash your hair with regular shampoo in the past, you may not be immediately satisfied with the natural alternative after the first wash. This is because your hair has become accustomed to silicones that are present in regular shampoos. Silicones put a layer over your hair, making it feel smooth and shiny, but at the same time, it closes your hair and has no chance to breathe. Natural hair soap washes this silicone from your hair and before it has completely disappeared your hair can feel greasy. Therefore, give your hair and scalp a chance to “kick-off” from regular shampoo for two weeks and ensure that it can regain its natural function. After this, your hair will look healthy, full and radiant! If you are still not convinced after two weeks, you can still use it as body soap because it contains many delicious and nourishing ingredients for the skin.
A great way to help you along is making your own ACV Hair Rinse, which gently cleanses the scalp and conditions your hair. It removes build-up and impurities from the hair, increases softness and shine, and restores the natural pH balance of your scalp.
- Maca root: nourishes the hair. Rich with iron, vitamin B & C
- Essential grapefruit oil: helps reduce dandruff and brings a greasy scalp back into balance
- Rich with natural oils like castor oil, sweet almond oil and shea butter that moisturize your hair
- For normal/oily hair
HOW TO USE
Wet your hair. Move the hair soap back and forth in different places on the scalp. Put the hair soap away (preferably outside the shower cubicle in soap holder). Massage the soap in. You will notice that foam is created. If you want to soap all your hair, you can spread this foam on the rest of your hair. For a detailed explanation, visit Zeeplokaal blog.
