The Shampoo Bar Transition - using natural shampoo bars for the first time
If you’re switching from a shampoo that contains synthetic detergents, your hair will most probably go through a transition phase. Some people do not experience a transition period at all, but if you do, it can take 2-3 washes or more.
Don’t over wash your hair during the process, the more you wash, the more your hair and scalp will get used to this new routine and the more your hair will need to be washed. Don’t be tempted to reach back for your old shampoo either as this will set you back in the process. Try brushing or combing your hair at least twice a day to help spread the natural oils through your hair.
Natural shampoo bars are more alkaline, so using an Apple Cider Vinegar rinse through the transition period and beyond helps to adjust the pH levels of the hair. Use the Apple Cider Vinegar solution after shampooing and rinsing your hair. To make a rinse, mix 3 parts water to one part Apple Cider Vinegar and wash it over your head. Leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse thoroughly. The vinegar smell shouldn’t linger.
A few drops of essential oils added to your apple cider vinegar rinse can help improve your hair and scalp (and make it smell less like vinegar), some favourites are lavender and rosemary. Different essential oils help different hair types. For example, lemongrass can be good for more oily hair and lavender can be good for dry or damaged hair.
