Wet hair as well as the shampoo bar. Scrub the bar in circular motions onto the hair and scalp a few times.  A thick lather will begin to foam, work in the lather with the tips of your fingers. Rinse hair normally. A little goes a long way with this shampoo bar. 

Some people like to rinse their hair afterwards to re-balance the pH of their hair using an apple cider vinegar hair rinse. To make the rinse- fill half a spray bottle with raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar and half water. Spray 10 times after shampooing and rinse. 


*Keep shampoo bar in a dry environment between uses.

** Each bar of handcrafted soap is unique. The bar you purchased may not be identical to the one in the product picture but will resemble it.
