Shampoo bars are soap, which is alkaline, whereas hair prefers a more acidic environment. When washing with soap, some people use acidic rinse after shampooing to restore the hair's pH. This rinse acts as a "conditioner" that restores pH, smooths the cuticle and make your hair shiny. In most cases you will not need an additional conditioner, because shampoo bars moisturize as they cleanse.
Make your own shine-boosting rinse by mixing raw apple cider vinegar and water. Start with 1 tablespoon to a cup of water, adjust the ration to needs of your hair, upto half apple cider vinegar/half water. Those with blonde hair usually find that lemon juice is better than the vinegar for enhancing their hair color at the same time. Pour it into a spray bottle and spray it on your hair after washing . Rinse after a few minutes.
For some people using alkaline soap & then an acidic rinse is too strenuous for the hair shaft, and can lead to eventual breakage. It is up to you to use what you feel is best of your hair.
Argan oil is also an excellent after-Shampoo hydrator and conditioner for those who need to shampoo ever day. It does not weigh fine hair down, and is light enough to not make the hair look greasy . Apply a little to the ends before or after blow drying .

Why Natural Shampoo Bars
- Shampoo bars help decrease our environmental impact by getting rid of plastic bottles.
- Eliminating products made from synthetic ingredients also helps to decrease groundwater contamination. Everything we send down the drain can end up in local waterways.
Harmful Commercial Soap Ingredients
Parabens: otherwise known as chemical preservatives, these harmful ingredients are found in majority of commercial soap and beauty products.
Phthalates: known to cause cancer, this additive is often used as a ‘plasticizer’- a fancy word for an ingredient used to produce plastic.
Petrochemicals: made from petroleum, these chemicals should be considered unsafe for humans because little is known about the long term effects they have on our health.
Synthetic Perfume: artificial perfume scents, although they smell nice, are linked to allergies and hormonal issues. As well, synthetic ingredients such as perfume are likely to cause skin conditions and to aggravate existing issues such as acne.
Artificial Coloring: commercial soaps are packed with artificial dyes that have been known to cause health problems and illnesses in humans.
Why not Palm Oil
Palm oil is there in our food, cosmetics, cleaning products and fuels. Oil palms need a rain forest climate (consistently high humidity and temperatures) and a lot of land. The plantations are often established at the expense of rain forests. Palm oil plantations are currently the leading cause of rain forest destruction. Palm oil trade is destroying orangutan habitat, endangering other rain forest animals as well as the indigenous people living in rural areas and contributing to the high levels of carbon emissions. The destruction of natural habitats deprives the animals of the basis for their existence, causing an irreversible loss of biological diversity. Orangutans are particularly vulnerable because they are dependent on large contiguous forest areas. In search of food, they often get lost in the plantations, where they are regarded as pests.
Only a few manufacturers their products as containing palm oil and palm fat. Most companies disguise it, referring to it as “vegetable oils and fats”. Palm oil in soap recipes creates a hard, stable bar of soap that lathers very well. It is also a very inexpensive ingredient used profusely in commercial soaps. In large quantities, palm oil can be excessively drying on your skin.
