Rub the bar between your hands and apply the lather to your hair or rub the bar directly on your hair.  Work the lather through and rinse as usual.

Daily conditioner is not absolutely necessary for some hair types, but is recommended to preserve the integrity of the hair shaft and prevent split ends.  Many customers report surprise at how easy it is to comb through their hair after shampooing, even without a conditioner, and that their hair is full, shiny, and clean feeling longer.

Proper Use:

  1. Shampoo with warm water
  2. Rinse (repeat steps 1 & 2 if needed)
  3. Apply conditioner or Hair Rinse
  4. Rinse with warm water
  5. Final cool water rinse

If you have hard water, the herbal-hair-rinses is recommended after shampooing for best results.  Just apply enough to wet all of your hair, work it through and rinse it out or leave it in (the vinegar odor will disappear).

Our handmade shampoo bar gently clean without stripping the natural oils from your hair, leaving it healthy and shiny.  I'm sure you'll be pleased and amazed at the results!  You may never want to use bottled shampoo again.

Simone,      I was a huge skeptic of your shampoo bars..mainly because I was a HUGE commercial Shampoo person, but I must say I am in love with your Herb Garden bar and the herbal rinse made with your Herbs for Hair.      I tested it ...One day I would do the commercial thing, then the next day I would do your thing ... and my hair is blonder and fluffier with yours.   I usually use volumizing shampoos because I have naturally blond hair and it does nothing but fall flat.   So I would use these shampoos to give me volume.  They seemed fine but I get more volume with your shampoo bar and rinse.  I don't know how you do it lady but KEEP doing it.   You have a new fan!   Thanks!  Heather

ABOUT Shampoo Bars, Herbal Vinegar Rinses, and Icky Hair

Our shampoo bars are so popular that it’s rare if an order goes out without at least one. But occasionally a customer will mention "icky hair" when first trying the shampoo bar.

Oh – yes, some people have hard water that does not respond well to the shampoo bars (the minerals interfere with the ability of the soap to be rinsed off your hair) .

Or – there may be so much build-up of chemical residue on the hair from commercial shampoos that it will take a week or more of using only the natural shampoo bar and the vinegar rinse to really clean the hair.

Hair is a modified form of skin, and works best when it’s slightly acidic. Hair also has a cuticle which opens when we shampoo our hair, and this makes the hair feel rough, or more coarse. Vinegar closes the cuticles, helps to restore the acidity, and removes any residue left behind. Your hair has more shine (any residue coats the hair, causing it to look dull), less tangles (the cuticles are closed, the hair slides more easily) and a healthier scalp.

Want more volume and stronger hair?  The Herbal Vinegar Rinse can improve your hair's ability to absorb and retain moisture (preventing dryness and breakage) by sealing the hair cuticle.  Also, this rinse is a great way to "detoxify" your scalp (dandruff, sores) by removing any hair product build-up while preserving your natural oils.  ACV balances pH levels through its acidity and helps stabilize the proper acidity of hair, so we recommend applying this rinse after shampooing.   Note:  the higher the pH levels, the more hydrogen ions there are, which contributes to better elasticity and overall volume.


Leave the rinse in or you can rinse it out, but the vinegar smell will dissipate so it’s really not necessary to rinse it, leaving it In helps even more with tangles and itchy scalp.

Among the most frequent causes of stressed scalp are hair abuse due to improper hair care, individual hypersensitivity to certain food, personal care or hair care ingredients, psychological stress, insufficient hair rinsing after shampooing the hair, rinsing with highly chlorinated water or water containing unhealthy ingredients. Selection of a proper shampoo which will not irritate the scalp (any of our all natural shampoo bars), is essential for successful reduction of scalp stress.

With any shampoo, it is important to rinse the hair to remove the residual from the hair roots. In fact, remaining detergents quite often are the primary cause of scalp irritation, seborrhea and hair loss. Concentrated shampoos and combined shampoo/conditioners make it very difficult to wash out the detergents. For truly healthy hair, avoid these.

Click on picture to enlargeMy whole family loves herbal rinses, including the Pooches! These rinses will add shine and body to your hair while restoring the pH of your scalp. The rinses are especially helpful for people with dandruff, dry scalp, or itchy scalp, but are good for everyone. The organic apple cider vinegar is infused with specific hair enhancing herbs, then combined with wonderful essential oils. The rinses are very helpful when transitioning from commercial shampoo to our all natural shampoo bars.

RESCUE TIP: If you are experiencing "icky hair", the vinegar rinse will help! Keep reading...

The herbal rinse is concentrated, easy mixing directions are included -- you will need a small squeeze bottle (or cup) to mix your herbal rinse with water before applying. They’re gentle enough to use on all hair, babies and dogs included.

These rinses will remove excess soap or residue from hair.

Use as often as needed on dry or wet hair for correction or prevention:

Apply from roots to ends, cover head with plastic cap, leave 30 minutes or overnight.  Follow with one of our nourishing shampoo bars and conditioner to complete the treatment.  Avoid sulphates (detergents) in liquid shampoo.

(Not all oils are correct for hair use.  Never use "Baby Oil", it contains mineral oil and will actually harm your hair by coating it and preventing absorption of nutrients, same applies to the skin.)

Hair is composed of a strong structural protein called keratin. This is the same kind of protein that makes up the nails and the outer layer of skin. Hair is a remarkably tough material, but over time many factors can wreak havoc with its natural properties. The hair becomes weakened, loses its elasticity and shine and becomes dull, brittle and eventually breaks. This process is called weathering.
Emu Oil not only penetrates through the three layers of hair to deliver moisture and nutrients, but it helps the scalp itself to thicken and provide a healthier environment for hair follicles. Many people have reported hair regrowth after using emu oil.



HERBS FOR HAIR RINSE

Calendula
Rosemary
Nettles
Lavender
Chamomile
Rose petals
Burdock Root




HERBS FOR HAIR HEALTH:

Aloe is well known as a potential stimulant of hair growth; fights frizz; conditions and soothes the scalp and regenerates the hair cells. Properties: Aloe-emodin, arginine, magnesium, salicylates, serine, vitamin C, and complex polysaccharides including acemannan.

Amla is an excellent hair conditioning herb that provides scalp-penetrating nourishment. It strengthens hair at the root, promoting stronger, healthier new growth. It can help slow or prevent hair loss, shedding, and breakage, prevents excessive hair fall and premature greying. This herb dominates the Flutterbye shampoo bar formulas.

Burdock root is helpful treating scalp problems, especially itching and dandruff. It also improves hair strength, restores shine and reverses thinning. The rare long chain of essential fatty acids helps to maintain healthy scalp and hair and aids in improving shine and elasticity. Burdock Root also stimulates blood flow to the scalp, encouraging growth. It is also rich in silica and phytosterols, which soothe irritated scalp conditions like dandruff, psoriasis, seborrhea dermatitis. The mucilage in Burdock Root is great at providing slip, making it easier to detangle hair.

Calendula is rich in minerals that are soothing to sensitive scalps, helps prevent damage by protecting hair from free-radicals. It also contains some antibacterial properties, helping keep the scalp and hair clear of infection and bacterial growth.Chamomile is a great conditioner for damaged and dry hair and is also beneficial for oily and normal hair; helps restore shine and brings out the natural highlights for blondes. It also helps to strengthen the hair to prevent breakage, tangling and split ends.

Chamomile provides soothing and anti-inflammatory properties to your hair and scalp. If you suffer from itchy, irritated, or sensitive scalp, a chamomile rinse or products containing chamomile can help get your scalp and hair growth back on track while promoting shine and sheen.

Green Tea Major constituents include polyphenols, carotenoids, tocopherol, Vitamin C, zinc, selenium, manganese and chromium. Most of these, but especially Vitamin C, tocopherol (Vitamin E), carotenoids (Vitamin A), zinc and selenium are known to prevent, stop and reverse hair loss. Green tea is thought to be a powerhouse when it comes to blocking DHT, which leads to hair loss.

Hibiscus has many beneficial uses. When steeped, the pinkish-red hue given off contains lots of mucilage and plant protein that is great for hair. It promotes growth and aids in the treatment of scalp conditions like dandruff and hair loss. It also aids in moisture retention by sealing the cuticle, which also helps promote shine. The high nutrient content of hibiscus makes it ideal to promote healthy hair growth and strength.

Horsetail is a rich source of silica and is known for its rich amino acids and phytosterols which aid in strengthening hair. It promotes strong, sleek, shiny and manageable hair. It also stimulates hair growth as it enhances scalp circulation. The silica content of horsetail is useful in hair growth as well as improving the appearance and strength of hair shafts. Horsetail is also known to reduce the buildup of natural oils that tend to form on the scalp which can lead to blocked hair follicles or may compromise the health of the follicles.

Nettle is an excellent hair tonic, promotes hair health and hair regrowth; rich source of Vitamin A and C. It is effective against hair loss as it inhibits the production enzyme which is the root cause of hair loss.

Rosemary encourages hair growth by improving blood flow and circulation to the scalp which results in strong, healthy hair growth. Rosemary also increases manageability and adds shine, stimulates the roots to prevent hair loss and to produce new growth; nourishes the scalp to prevent dandruff; slows premature graying .

Sage is an important herb for proper hair care. It is effective in treating scalp infection, dandruff and oily hair problems. It is said to lessen hair loss and restore hair color. The astringent properties also make it ideal to eliminate buildup from the hair and scalp without drying it out.

Yarrow strengthens the hair follicle and natural color, with consistent use will diminish grey and return natural color.

Witch Hazel helps improve the blood circulation at your scalp. Improved blood circulation will stimulate natural hair growth.
