WHY DO I MAKE MY ROSEMARY SHAMPOO BAR
A convenient and traditional way to wash hair that contains none of the chemicals found in store brand shampoos. That means no chemical fragrance, no propylene glycol, no sodium lauryl sulfate, no Diethanolamin, no, well strange things - just simple, good for your hair saponified oils, proteins and essential oils. Shampoo Bars are far more cost effective than liquid soaps. In tests, soap bars last much longer than liquid soaps, probably because you don't use more than you need. This is both economical AND good for the environment. Soap bars require MUCH less packaging, if any, are lighter to ship, and keep unnecessary chemicals out of the water supply. Ad, because you are using less soap, it doesn't take as long to rinse the soap out of your hair!
THE STORY BEHIND MY ROSEMARY SHAMPOO BAR
It took me a long time to find a shampoo soap recipe that worked for my hair. Kevin, my husband and partner in the business isn't very effusive about many things but he is about this shampoo bar. He loves how convenient it is, that he isn't forced to use more than he needs, how it feels clean and adds body to his hair.
THIS HISTORY OF MY ROSEMARY SHAMPOO BAR
Before liquid shampoo, soap bars were the norm. Rosemary is traditional hair growth stimulator as is Sage, Thyme and Rosewood. Argan and Jojoba is used in high-end hair conditioners.
WHO IS MY ROSEMARY SHAMPOO BAR FOR?
This Shampoo Bar is especially great for people who want to add body to the hair. It also seems to make my hair curl.
WHY IS MY ROSEMARY SHAMPOO BAR SPECIAL?
Not all shampoo bars are the same. Some famous companies actually use Sodium Lauryl Sulfate as their first ingredient which sort of negates the reason to go to a shampoo bar in the first place. My Rosemary Shampoo Bar is made with only saponified oils. I add the Jojoba and Argan after the saponification process so it is available to condition your hair more.
WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN MY ROSEMARY SHAMPOO BAR ?
Saponified Oils of Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Sustainable Organic Palm Oil, Organic Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Castor Oil, Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil, Beeswax, Essential Oils of Rosemary, Sage, Thyme, and Cederwood.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF MAKING MY ROSEMARY SHAMPOO BAR
I make my Rosemary Shampoo Bar from scratch using the best ingredients I can while keeping the cost to you reasonable.
DIRECTIONS FOR USING MY ROSEMARY SHAMPOO BAR
For short hair, wet and lather up. For longer hair, it is easiest to part hair in sections and focus on the scalp. Longer hair might benefit from my rosemary water, Apple Cider Vinegar Spray to smooth hair cuticles.
FINAL NOTES REGARDING MY ROSEMARY SOAP BAR.
Chemical free soap using saponified oils isn't going to be for everyone, especially for those of us with challenging longer hair. I like to mix up my types of shampoos and having been doing it all my life, alternating between them. I am working on my alternatives now (including one with silicones and one using a traditional Indian dry herb mix) and will let you know when I've got one or more that I think others will like!
