Friendly Soap Biodegradable Plastic Free Shampoo Bar - Lavender and Geranium

This nourishing shampoo bar is compact, long-lasting, and uses caster oil for a creamy and deeply conditioning lather that cleans and cares for your locks and scalp. Relaxing lavender and rose geranium essential oils add to the pleasure.

This Lavender and Geranium Shampoo Bar is made with castor oil which has been used for centuries as a natural conditioner. To make it even better, we add coconut and olive oils for the rich, nourishing and moisturising qualities they bring to the party. Last but not least, essential oils of lavender and rose geranium help reduce stress, making this product a true all-rounder.

Each Lavender & Geranium Shampoo bar is handmade with coconut oil, castor oil, olive oil, argan oil, lavender & geranium essential oils.

NOT SUITABLE FOR HARD WATER: When traditional natural soap comes into contact with the minerals in hard water it causes a chemical reaction that changes the sodium salt component in soaps into their calcium and magnesium salt counterparts, thus resulting in an insoluble white-grey residue. This residue is very difficult to rinse out of hair using the hard water from your tap or shower. An apple cider vinegar or baking soda rinse may help to soften the water chemically. A Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda) solution can be used to rid your hair of the mineral build up caused by hard water. While this is perfect for removing the mineral build up, it doesn’t solve the problem of hard water, as you then re-applying the minerals when you rinse your hair from your supply. If you are in any doubt or are not really up to such a drastic change in habits, then natural shampoo bars, when used in very hard water areas, are probably not for you. Though we know that the problem can be solved with a few alterations to lifestyle, we fully understand that people often just don’t have the time or patience for it and so feel that it is better, for everyone involved, that we are open and transparent about it from the start.

Switching to a Natural Shampoo Top Tips:

At first, your scalp might become slightly oily or dry, or flip between the two.  It might feel frizzy or waxy too, like there’s a bit of residue left in it. Don’t panic – this is normal, and it’s just your hair’s way of adjusting because your scalp needs time to rebalance its natural oil production. This stage usually lasts around one week, depending on just how much damage using chemical shampoos has done. Stick with it!

Once your hair has adjusted it will feel softer, cleaner and much more manageable, and that’s because natural shampoo bars clean and condition your hair without stripping it of its natural sebum. Any dandruff might disappear too, because your scalp isn’t being dried out and your skin isn’t reacting to those nasty chemicals bottled shampoos are full of.

Tips for an easy transition

  • Use an apple cider vinegar rinse (see below) instead of a conditioner, as this helps restore your scalp’s pH balance as well as banish old chemicals. It will also protect the shaft of each hair and give it a wonderful shine too.
  • Give your hair a few days off between washes, just to allow it to adjust.
  • Rinse your hair thoroughly whenever you wash it, to help make sure you get rid of every trace of shampoo.
  • To help calm any frizz or tangles, you can also try using a little argon oil through your hair.

Apple cider vinegar spritz

1 part apple cider vinegar (use the type with ‘mother of vinegar’)
4 parts water
A few drops of your favourite essential oil

Baking soda clarifying rinse recipe

Baking soda (or to give it it’s posh name, sodium bicarbonate) is an easy clarifier to use, and it helps lift grease and product residue from your hair.

1 tablespoon baking soda
1 – 2 cups of warm water

Combine these ingredients in a spray bottle or cup, then wet your hair, apply the rinse, and work it through.  Now rinse your hair thoroughly with warm water, then shampoo it.

Great scent but it leaves a wax feeling in your hair and looks dirty. I wouldn't recommend.

Great solid shampoo

Love the scent and how well it lathers, but does leave a small residue. May just take my hair some time to adjust. Excellent product all the same

So far, so good
Thursday, 12 March 2020  | 

I'm loving it so far. My hair feels thicker and I don't need to wash it every day as I used to. The shampoo lathers really well too. I'm hoping to get four weeks per bar (family of five) which would make it amazing value for money too.
