Getting the longest life out of your plastic free shampoo:
To ensure you get the most out of your natural shampoo bar it’s best to let it dry out between uses. Where possible do not leave your shampoo bar in an area where water is constantly running over the bar, as this will decrease its lifespan.
For best results allow your shampoo bar to stand upright, this will maximise the drying area. Don’t want to take the full shampoo bar with you when travelling plastic free? Cut the desired amount off your shampoo bar and add to your plastic free travel kit.
When your shampoo bar starts to get down to the final stages, add the bar to another shampoo bar. The shampoo bar can also be used to wash the rest of the body or hands.
How do I use a Shampoo Bar?

Start with wet hair, rub the bar between your hands to build up a lather and apply to your hair. Just like you would with a liquid shampoo or conditioner, gently massage the lather into your hair. You can also rub the bar a few times directly on your wet hair to build up a lather. After using a shampoo bar a few times you will find a technique that best works for you.
