How to Use a Shampoo Bar

Making the switch to a vegan, cruelty-free and sustainable shampoo bar shouldn’t be difficult and shouldn’t require any compromises. Follow these tips and tricks for a smooth transition.

  1. Give your mane a good brush. Start by removing any knots or tangles with your favorite brush or comb. This step also helps distribute your natural oils.

  2. Wet your hair. Make sure to get your hair saturated with lukewarm water to ensure that the shampoo can get a good lather in the next step.

  3. Apply your shampoo. Wet the bar with a light amount of water and rub it in your hands to start creating suds. Gently massage the bar directly to your scalp and hair.

  4. Put your bar away. Keep your shampoo on your shower ledge or in a safe container to ensure no mess.

  5. Massage into your scalp. With your fingertips, work the shampoo into your hair and scalp. Make sure to reach above the ears and at the back of your neck.

  6. Rinse with warm water. Remove any shampoo and residue from your hair. Check all areas of your scalp and hair to ensure that all remaining shampoo is removed.

  7. Dry hair as usual. Whether you air-dry your mane or use a hair dryer, your locks will be left soft and shiny without the tradeoffs of traditional shampoos.
