Have you tried a solid shampoo bar before? Besides being environmentally friendly and plastic-free, they are super concentrated and last on average about 50 to 60 washes or about 3 bottles of liquid shampoo. They travel very well and can act as a body wash if packing space is slim. They clean with a combination of surfactants, but they also contain some really lovely active ingredients. Mine are formulated to be smooth as I prefer a smooth surface that won't get stuck in my hair or pull it. I found that the noodles of other shampoo bars tend to stick out sometimes and pull on my very long hair.

The conditioning shampoo bars contain lovely emollients, conditioners, and humectants to help impart some moisture to dry hair. This could be used as a 2 in 1 for those with normal to dry hair, but I use it with a conditioner bar since my hair needs the extra conditioning and detangling. Let's talk about the special ingredients in it:

- Organic Cocoa Butter: A wonderful emollient and bar hardener.

- Organic Jojoba Oil: It can penetrate our hair follicles to moisturize from the inside.

- LuxGlide N5 and N350: These are natural, ECOcert silicone alternatives that reduce frizz, increase shine, form films, and moisturize.

- BTMS 50: A plant-based conditioning emulsifier. It has 2 jobs in my shampoo bars: to emulsify the oil based ingredients with the water based ingredients and to provide conditioning/detangling properties.

- Cetyl Alcohol: Another plant-based emulsifier and non-greasy emollient.

- Bamboo Extract: Contains silica, which can help strengthen hair, and smooth the cuticle to increase shine and reduce tangles.

NaturePep Amaranth (White Lily variety only): Reduces friction for smoother, bouncier hair. Increases the diameter of individual hair fibers for fuller looking hair. Adds gloss and shine for healthier looking hair. Improves manageability and helps prevent damage.

- Polyquaternium 7: Provides good wet combing, has anti-static properties, and adds softness while not building up on hair.

- Panthenol: Vitamin B5

- Hydrolyzed Oats: Oat protein has a higher molecular weight, which means it can form a film on the hair strand, which helps the hair to resist dehydration.

The black bar is the Charcoal and Tea Tree variety. I formulated this shampoo for those with normal to oily hair or for those who struggle with itchy scalp/dandruff. It is so powerful, you may find that you need only to use this once or twice a week in between regular shampoo days. It is scented with a blend of equal parts lavender and tea tree essential oils with a bit of peppermint eo for a kick. Special ingredients include:

- Activated Charcoal: Aids in cleansing, exfoliating, and degreasing the scalp and hair.

- Willow Bark Extract: Contains salicylic acid, which acts as an exfoliant, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-itching agent.

- Green Tea Leaf Extract: Anti-inflammatory that provides protection from photo-damage, it's anti-bacterial, and a phenomenal anti-oxidant. It has even been found to promote hair growth.

- Hydrolyzed Quinoa: While hydrolyzed oats forms a film, hydrolyzed quinoa has a lower molecular weight and helps to hydrate, reduce breakage, and repair damage (also has some film forming properties).

- Tea Tree Essential Oil: Can help reduce itching, helps control yeast/microbial overgrowth.

- Lavender Essential Oil: Promotes hair growth, has antimicrobial properties, may help with scalp inflammation.

- Peppermint Essential Oil: Has similar properties as tea tree essential oil.

 A note about handmade soap and shampoo: Each bar is handmade, hand molded, and no two are exactly alike. Your bar will last longer if kept dry between uses. Place your bar on a well-draining soap dish out of the spray of water for best performance. Discontinue use if irritation occurs. Soaps/shampoos are for external use only and are not edible. You may experience colored lather with dark or brightly colored bars. I have not experienced any staining nor have my testers, but your mileage may vary ;-)
