Bain and Savon Shampoo Bar | Coconut Milk
An eco-friendly, zero-waste, natural plastic-free alternative to liquid shampoos.
This is a solid zesty shampoo bar scented with a spritely blend of citrus essential oils that not only gives them a wonderful smell, but a boost of cleansing power as well.
We have used essential oils of Orange, Grapefruit and Lemongrass. Topped off with a home dried orange slice.
This is a natural shampoo, hand made using the cold process soap making. It is free from preservatives and SLS, we only use natural ingredients, suitable for vegans, no animal testing, a healthy alternative to commercial shampoo, free from chemicals.
How to use:
Comb out dry hair before shampooing. Do not miss this step, especially if you use styling products.
Wet bar and lather in hands, apply lather to hair. Or alternatively rub bar directly onto hair and lather well (this works well for me - mid/long length hair).*
*When using the bars, one thing that is very important is to lather the soap up really well, and to use lots of lather when washing your hair. The most common spot, especially for people with long hair, is at the back of the head. You need to work the shampoo into your hair with water and lather up so that the dirt and extra oils not needed by your hair can be washed away.
If you are used to using normal commercial shampoo and shampoo twice, you will notice that the second wash produces a lot more lather. The first wash is mixing with the dirt and excess oil in your hair so the second wash is working on cleaner hair. The same is true for our shampoo bars. So lather up, once or twice. But please make sure to rinse every single time! And then make sure to use an apple cider vinegar hair rinse!
Massage lather into roots and through lengths of hair. Rinse out thoroughly.
We recommend using our Botanical Hair Rinse for amazing, bouncy & shiny hair but also to get rid of any soap/grease or product residue. Spray hair rinse thoroughly from roots to ends, comb and/or massage through. Leave on for about 20 seconds, then rinse out. Repeat if necessary. Important: Vinegar scent will disappear when hair dries.
Please don’t use your shampoo bar once or twice and decide you don’t like it, everyone’s hair is different and it may take a little time for your hair to adjust. It may take up to two weeks to rid your hair from all the residue left over from the chemicals in the commercial shampoos. Give your hair time to adjust to the lack of chemicals and hair product build up. But stick it out and get through this period and you will realise just how much healthier your hair is, it will be soft and shiny in no time!

Since these handcrafted shampoo and conditioner bars have no chemical preservatives, it deserves a little bit of attention to keep it happy and prolong its life.
When you are not using it its best to keep it out of water on a well drained surface so that it completely dries between uses. Use a soap dish, wooden dishes with open slats are perfect.
This will help make it last so you can get the most from your shampoo and conditioner bars and enjoy feeling naturally fresh and fragrant for as long as possible!
