Technique #1: Use the bar directly on your hair
Gently rub the wet bar directly onto your hair from scalp to ends in a combing motion. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes, then rinse completely.
Technique #2: Create the lather in your hands
Rub the wet bar between your hands to create a nice lather. Using your fingers like a comb, smooth the lather along your hair. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes, then rinse completely.
Conditioning: When using a conditioner bar, the biggest mistake people make is not using enough. These bars rinse very clean and it is impossible to over condition with them. You should rub the bars in until you can run your fingers through your hair while still in the shower.
Contrary to traditional conditioners, it is okay to rub the conditioner on your scalp. We actually recommend it! The oils do not strip your hair, are extremely moisturizing, and rinse clean.
Shampoo bars (original and sulfate free) usually last 50-75+ washes, depending on length of hair and frequency of use.
Conditioner bars (original and gluten free) usually last 50-75+ washes, depending on length of hair & frequency of use.
All bars must be kept out of standing water to prolong use. Use a soap lift to preserve the life of your bar.
Yes. Our shampoo and conditioner bars are made in Ohio and Colorado.
They are great for all hair types, including colored hair.
Our bars contain cocoa butter and coconut oil to help moisturize your hair and scalp. These two
ingredients also help protect colored/treated hair from losing color too fast.
Apricot seed oil, hemp oil, and red raspberry seed oil all protect your hair, help strengthen your strands, and promote hair growth, while preventing hair loss. Red raspberry seed oil is also a sunscreen.
The clays are used in the bars for detoxification, coloring, and to help hold the bars together.
If you are looking for a gentler option, our new sulfate free bars are the perfect addition to your hair care routine. They boast all of the natural botanical properties of the original bars, with a more mild cleanser!
Yes, these bars are completely vegan and cruelty-free!
The shampoo bars are 100% gluten free.
We now offer gluten free conditioner bar options! You can find them in our "Gluten Free" Conditioner Bars section here.
The original conditioner bars are NOT gluten free because they contain wheat germ oil. If your skin is sensitive to gluten, we would recommend proceeding with caution!
Please be advised: While we do our best to accommodate those with severe allergies and eliminate any cross-contamination in our manufacturing facilities, we cannot guarantee that any of our products are entirely free from allergens.
These bars are fantastic for all hair types, including curly hair.
Both our shampoo and conditioner bars boast tons of useful ingredients for curly hair, such as:
All oils (coconut oil, hemp seed oil, red raspberry seed oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, apricot seed oil, wheat germ oil, rapeseed oil)
Sodium Coco Sulfate (SCS) is a very mild cleanser and has been deemed a safe and gentle ingredient for your hair, skin & the planet. It is derived from the fatty acid of coconut oil and is not as harsh as SLS.
If you follow the Curly Girl Method (CGM), and avoid sulfates in your hair care routine, our new bars are for you! Along with being paraben, silicone, filler, and preservative free like our other bars, these new bars are also completely sulfate free! Perfect for gently cleansing and deeply nourishing your curls.
We also recommend our conditioner bars to nourish the scalp and strands, as well as for frizz management and moisture control. They can also be used as a leave-in treatment! To do so, simply rub some into your hair when you get out of the shower.
The bars are wrapped in a paper-based bag and sealed with a sugarcane label.
Both the bags and the labels are 100% HOME compostable/biodegradable.
With that being said, we are in the process of switching our packaging to 100% recycled cardboard boxes. This sturdier option will help better ensure the safety of your products during transit and will also be 100% HOME compostable/biodegradable.
Our original shampoo bars are available in 2.0 and 2.5 oz sizes.
Our sulfate-free shampoo bar is 3.0 oz.
Our original conditioner bar is 1.4 oz.
Our gluten-free conditioner bar is 2.0 oz.
Yes, all of our shampoo and conditioner bars are 100% palm oil free.
Our glycerin is a byproduct of our soap making. It is a combination of coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil, castor oil & rice bran oil. Ours is mostly coconut oil based.
All of our bars contain coconut oil and our gluten-free conditioner bars contain sweet almond oil. Because of this, anyone with severe nut allergies should purchase these bars with caution.
Sodium coco sulfate (SCS) is a mild cleanser and what makes the bars lather. Along the way, sulfates got a bad reputation for being unsafe. SCS is completely made from the fatty acids of coconuts (a renewable resource), not petroleum like SLS's.
SCS has been deemed a safe ingredient by many environmental, cosmetic, and health watchdog groups. The molecules in SCS are large and cannot penetrate through the skin barrier, while SLS molecules are small and can get into your bloodstream. Once the lather is rinsed from your hair, the SCS goes right down the drain.
After intensive research, we have determined that SCS is the best for human health as well as clean and naturally shiny hair.
However, if you prefer to avoid sulfates altogether, we now carry bars that are completely sulfate free!
Yes! All of our bars are compact and TSA-approved making them easy to take on the go!
These do not require an ACV rinse - at all. Our bars contain lemon peel and lemon juice which are very effective in removing any and all buildup. They leave your hair feeling squeaky clean, soft & moisturized!
Yes, these bars are 100% paraben and preservative free.
The original shampoo and conditioner bars have a pH of 7.0-7.2.
The sulfate-free shampoo bars have a pH of 4-5.5.
The gluten-free conditioner bars have a pH of 5-5.5.
One shampoo or conditioner bar is predicted to save you roughly three average-sized plastic shampoo/conditioner bottles.
Therefore, 1 bar = 3 plastic bottles diverted.
They do not collect bacteria. The bars contain coconut oil which naturally kills bacteria.
Add a soap lift to your order to preserve the life of your bar and prevent any scum buildup.
Yes! We are proud to say our packaging is completely plastic-free!
We ship all of our items in paper mailers or cardboard boxes and seal them with paper tape.
Our paper mailers are made from 100% recycled materials. Our cardboard boxes are not currently made from recycled materials but we are working on changing that! Our tape is paper based with a water-activated corn starch adhesive and water-based ink.
Both the mailers and boxes can be composted or recycled. The paper tape can be recycled in the majority of facilities, however we encourage you to reach out to your local recycling facility and see what their equipment is capable of. It is possible that they screen out any material with adhesives.
