Bain and Savon Shampoo Bar | Nettle and Marshmallow
An eco-friendly, zero-waste, natural plastic-free alternative to liquid shampoos.
This shampoo & body bar was created to smooth and rehydrate dry, lackluster, and/or curly, hard-to-manage hair.
- Softens the hair naturally.
- Promotes hair growth (due to it’s high content of plant proteins).
- Provides natural shine to dull hair follicles.
- Soothes dry scalp.
- Reduces itchy scalp.
Nettle increases blood flow to your scalp. It also oxygenates your hair follicles and strengthens hair fibers, promoting healthier, shinier, fuller hair. It is also used to treat dandruff.
We have used our own nettle and marshmallow root infusion grown in my vegetable garden in Cumbria, well the nettles were!!!!.
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.

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!
