Have you heard of a shampoo bar? Well according to Best Soap Ever, "A Shampoo Bar resembles a bar of vegetable based soap, but it is formulated especially for hair. One of the many advantages of using Shampoo Bars is that they can be formulated using all natural ingredients including vegetable oils, vegetable butters, essential oils and other nutritives."
Would you like to know why you should become a fan shampoo bars? There are many reasons. According to Anne-Marie (aka The Soap Queen) the lather is incredible, the bar is long lasting, you have shinier hair with zero buildup, and it’s all natural!
Anne-Marie recently posted a recipe for her Invigorating Shampoo Bars on her site. Her recipe contains a lot of castor oil, which creates a rich and foamy lather. Coconut oil and palm oil also provide a fluffy lather and add to the hardness of the bar. Tea tree essential oil is an antiseptic and is known to help treat scalp conditions such as dandruff and head lice. Plus, it stimulates new hair growth by removing dead skin cells from hair follicles. It also smells minty, earthy and fresh, leaving you energized and revitalized for the day.
I never have used a shampoo bar before but what you need to do is rub the bar in a couple small circles right on your head and work the lather up with your fingers. After seeing this recipe, I am interested in trying to back a batch since it is making by the cold process method.
