SWITCHING TO A SHAMPOO BAR
When you first switch to a natural shampoo bar you may go through what is
called a "transition phase". During this period your hair may feel oily, you may
produce excessive sebum and get waxy residues.
The reason this happens is that conventional shampoos and hair products often
contain silicones that coat your hair to make them feel soft and look shiny.
Unfortunately, these substances leave some residues that are hard to remove
with natural gentle products.
Another reason is that conventional shampoos tend to remove your natural oils
causing your scalp to over-produce oils to compensate. Because natural
shampoo bars don't strip the hair of their natural oils, for a little while you may
have excess oils while your scalp adjusts to the new washing method.
BEFORE USING THE BAR
To avoid this oily feeling you can do a Baking soda wash before using your
shampoo bar. This may be done only once to speed-up the transition phase or
regularly if you live in a hard-water area.
1 tbsp of Baking Soda/Bicarbonate of Soda
1 litre of warm water
Dissolve the baking soda into the litre of warm water in a large jar or bottle.
Pour the solution on your wet hair, massage and rinse well.
Then proceed with the application of your shampoo bar.
You may also find a cider vinegar rinse can help reduce oily/stickiness. After you wash your hair with your shampoo bar, follow with a cider vinegar rinse (4 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and 8 parts water) - then rinse out.
