Tips from Friendly Soap UK for your journey from bottle to bar:

Ok, so you love the thought of using a more caring shampoo that’s completely natural, but you’re worried about making the switch from your usual chemical goo. Don’t be.  It might take a few washes to make the transition – or ‘purge’ as it’s sometimes called – but it’s easy enough if you follow our simple tips.

At first, your scalp might become slightly oily or dry, or flip between the two.  It might feel frizzy or waxy too, like there’s a bit of residue left in it. Don’t panic – this is normal, and it’s just your hair’s way of adjusting because your scalp needs time to rebalance its natural oil production. This stage usually lasts around one week, depending on just how much damage using chemical shampoos has done. Stick with it!

Once your hair has adjusted it will feel softer, cleaner and much more manageable, and that’s because natural shampoo bars clean and condition your hair without stripping it of its natural sebum. Any dandruff might disappear too, because your scalp isn’t being dried out and your skin isn’t reacting to those nasty chemicals bottled shampoos are full of.

Tips for an easy transition

  • Use an apple cider vinegar rinse (see below) instead of a conditioner, as this helps restore your scalp’s pH balance as well as banish old chemicals. It will also protect the shaft of each hair and give it a wonderful shine too.
  • Brush your hair gently and often – twice every day is good – brushing it from scalp to tips so you can help redistribute your hair’s natural oils.
  • Give your hair a few days off between washes, just to allow it to adjust.
  • Rinse your hair thoroughly whenever you wash it, to help make sure you get rid of every trace of shampoo.
  • Try using a bit of dry shampoo or corn starch if your hair is feeling oily, rubbing a small amount into your scalp before brushing it through.
  • To help calm any frizz or tangles, you can also try using a little argon oil through your hair.
  • If your hair has a lot of product built up in it, before you use the shampoo bar try the simple baking soda rinse we’ve detailed below.

Apple cider vinegar spritz

  • 1 part apple cider vinegar (use the type with ‘mother of vinegar’)
  • 4 parts water
  • A few drops of your favourite essential oil

Baking soda clarifying rinse recipe

Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) is an easy clarifier to use, and it helps lift grease and product residue from your hair.

  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 – 2 cups of warm water

Combine these ingredients in a spray bottle or cup, then wet your hair, apply the rinse, and work it through.  Now rinse your hair thoroughly with warm water, then shampoo it.

Washing your hair

Just run the shampoo bar over your head in one direction, from front to back. This will help you to avoid creating any pesky knots. Once you have a good amount of shampoo on your head, massage it into your scalp.  Now rinse your hair with water until every drop of shampoo is out.  That’s it – you’re done.
