Surya Luna Naturals
HAIR CARE GUIDE
Everything you need to know about transitioning to your new shampoo and conditioner bars
Changing to a shampoo bar from a traditional liquid shampoo can take some adjustment.
Most commercial liquid shampoos contain SLS (sodium laurel sulfate) to remove product build up and synthetic silicones to smooth the hair. These chemicals can themselves build up in the hair which is why many people find they need to change their shampoo after a few weeks.
They can also strip the hair of its natural protective oils and in fact cause an over production of oil by the scalp as it tries to compensate.
Surya Luna Naturals Shampoo Bars are a more natural, gentler alternative that do not contain any harsh chemicals and have been formulated from hair and scalp loving oils, botanicals, natural mineral clays and essential oils.
They are also very economical to use and if kept dry between washes can last over eight weeks.
There can be a period of adjustment as your hair and scalp get used to your new shampoo bar. This can take days, weeks or sometimes months – everyone’s hair is different.
During this time you may feel that your hair feels heavy or waxy. This is normal and should pass.
To begin with you may just want to lather up the bar between your hands and rub the bubbles through your hair. Later, you may find that your hair will be happy with you using the bar directly on your head.
You can follow your new cleansing routine with one of our conditioner bars to add softness and moisture to your hair.
These bars are extremely economical and can last much, much longer than traditional liquid conditioners as you will find that less is definitely more, and you only need a tiny amount to condition your hair.
After shampooing, gently rub the bar between wet hands and then VERY lightly glide the bar over your hair.
If you have especially oily hair you may wish to avoid the scalp area.
If you have very dry hair you may wish to pay extra attention to the lower sections.
Massage the oils gently into your hair and then rinse thoroughly.
You might need to experiment to find just the right amount of application for your hair.
Our grandparents knew all about the benefits of using a vinegar rinse after washing to clarify the hair and impart a beautiful healthy shine.
As a final step you can create your own vinegar rinse using one part apple cider vinegar and four parts water.
You can also add a few drops of your favourite essential oil. I like to keep this mixture in a small spray bottle and spritz my hair before giving it one final rinse.
Don’t worry – the vinegar smell fades very quickly. You can use this rinse as often as needed and may people say that once or twice a week is enough for them.
We hope you love our shampoo and conditioner bars as much as we do and that your hair looks and feels healthy, shiny and full of life.
