Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How many washes does a bar last?
A. An 80g shampoo bar will last approximately 60 to 70 washes, depending on hair length and storage.
While a 50g conditioner bar will last you 50 to 60 washes.
The bars may attract moisture due to its moisturizing properties and may cause it to sweat. For the bars to last its longest we recommend that you store them on a soap dish with drain holes and keep them away from spraying water while not in use.
Q. How to store the bars?
A. We recommend that upon receipt of your bars you open the wrapper and let it sit for a day or two (air dry) before using. This would make the curing process longer and will in return make you bars harder so that it can reach its optimum use of 60 to 70 washes.
Best application is to apply directly to wet hair from the tips then form a lather. Please don't expect the same lather as that of your standard commercial shampoo bars as these are sulfate free.

This is important as drying is key in making it last longer. The consistency of the shampoo will go softer after every use as we limit the use of hardeners.

Q. How to use a shampoo or conditioner bar?

3. Using your fingers like a comb, smooth the lather along your hair. This way your hair don’t get tangled up.
4. Gently massage it into the scalp and hair as you would with a bottled shampoo. Be kind to your scalp. Please don’t use your fingernails, flatten your fingertips on your head like you hold a ball then massage gently.
