Review from Facebook, thank you to Sav Mauder, Beautiful and so pleased you like the Coconut and Aloe Vera Shampoo Bar

Nettle, Flax and Oat Solid Shampoo Bar. One of the oldest known remedies used to help prevent hair loss is the stinging Nettle.  Used by the ancient Egyptians, the ancient Greeks and the Romans, this powerful herb has long been known for its many health benefits.  Well known as a great natural hair thickener the use of Nettles in our shampoo bar helps with thin flyaway hair.

Nettle leaves are rich in silica and sulphur. This helps in making hair shinier and healthier.

nettle leaves are a very effective treatment for dandruff.

Urtica dioica, or Common Nettle and Stinging Nettle.  Is a well known ancient remedy, its popular in folklore worldwide, the plant is often uprooted as a weed. This is such a pity because it holds within itself a number of health benefits, here is a brief about this healing herb.

Nettle leaves are rich in silica and sulphur,  these help to make hair shiny, healthier and thicker.

Flax seeds are a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids are essential for healthy hair growth, they nourish the follicles and hair shafts, making them stronger and less prone to damage. This also ensures that the new growth is strong and healthy. Omega-3 fatty acids help improve hair elasticity.

Flax seeds help condition your hair, making it smooth and manageable.  It helps bind moisture to the hair shaft, controlling issues like breakage, split ends, dryness, and frizz.

Flax seeds help balance pH levels and oil production. These are two factors that directly affect the rate at which your hair grows and its health. Flax seeds soothe the scalp and help calm the sebaceous glands, so they produce the right amount of oil for healthy hair growth.

Oatmeal could be used as a stand-alone soap, it contains cleansing agents and lathers with water, used in our soap bars it helps remove dead skin cells by gently exfoliating while adding moisture and proteins at the same time.

It works so well on dry skin, of course it can help relieve a dry and itchy scalp, Oatmeal is a natural moisturiser and regular use can help treat a dry and itchy scalp.  Also, if you’re having issues with dandruff, oatmeal is an ingredient that you should incorporate in your hair regimen.

Avocado oil is good for moisturising dry, brittle, and damaged hair. It has a light weight formula that’s easily absorbed into the hair and scalp. It contains many nutrients such as vitamins A, B, D, E, protein, amino acids, iron, copper, magnesium, and folic acid.

Regular treatment with rosemary oil helps to minimise hair loss, studies have shown it can help stimulate hair follicles and may promote faster growth.

Thank you for the Nettles That help us with our ills, No need for chemicals creams or pills, Just try our soap and you will see, What Nettle can do, For you and me

If you’ve never used a shampoo bar before, it may take a number of washes for your hair to adjust.
The correct way to use a shampoo bar is not to use large amounts.
Remember that you are just trying to cleanse your scalp, you are not trying to produce a heap of lather like you get with commercial shampoos that use irritating foaming and soaping agents.

That’s not to say you cannot create lots of lather if you prefer to use it that way, but folks use the shampoo bar in a number of ways, some  prefer to rub it right on their hair while others prefer to lather it in their hands and then apply to hair.
Try and find a way that works best for you, don’t give up on it, you will start to feel and see the benefits after a short time.

The way of getting the best from your natural soap is to use a draining soap dish, this gives your soap a chance to dry between uses which prolongs its life.

Our soap bars are hand cut, the soap may not be a perfect thickness all around,  I therefore say that all bars are 170g but never less and occasionally more.
