In a book published in 1880 titled, “Decorum: A Practical Treatise On Etiquette And Dress Of The Best American Society,” John Ruth wrote,
“Many heads of hair require nothing more in the way of wash than soap and water.” Unlike liquid detergent shampoos which work in both hard and soft water, natural shampoo bars can take some experimenting to get the right technique and the right bar.
If your hair does not seem to be adjusting to the shampoo bars, it may be due to your water. The characteristics of your water can determine how well (or poorly) your shampoo and conditioning routine works.
An Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) rinse is a great addition to any hair care regimen. Raw apple cider vinegar (ACV), packed with nutrients, can help with tangles and frizzy hair, bring back body and shine, decrease residue and clarify, stimulate the scalp, decrease dandruff, and unclog hair follicles which may help with excess shedding or hair loss. These rinses are especially helpful for those new to shampoo bars.
