Natural Hair Care
What is a Syndet Shampoo and a Regular Shampoo Bar and which is right for you?
Syndet shampoo bars are made from synthetic surfactants. These surfactants are made from oils, fats or petroleum products that are processed in some way other than saponification with which soap is made. These synthetic surfactants make syndet shampoo bars the mildest personal cleansing bars. Dove®, which was launched in 1955, was the first syndet bar produced. Syndets have advantages over regular soap/shampoo such as having a very low pH. Syndets are recommended for cleansing sensitive skin as well as baby skin since they are far more gentle and skin-friendly than traditional shampoo. Our syndet shampoo bars DO NOT contain SLS/SLES (sodium laurel sulfate / sodium laureth sulfate) or other harmful chemicals. SLS/SLES can cause dry, itchy and irritated scalp and can dry out your hair, as well as contribute to hair loss.
Regular Shampoo Bars
Regular shampoo bars are actually made with the same process as all other bar soaps with the exception of using infused herbs and special oils for your specific hair type. Did you know they were commonly used before our traditional shampoo and conditions were invented (around the time of WWII)?
No matter which one of our shampoo or syndet bars you choose, both formulas will help with increased volume, faster growing hair, reduced dandruff, shinier hair and less frizz. If you have curly hair, most people say that they have more defined curls with better control. Our shampoo and syndet bars are good for all hair types and hair lengths. Both are safe for color treated/bleached hair.
This Shampoo Bar is so luxurious and cleansing! It is made with beer which is very nourishing to hair, and coconut oil which is very cleansing and moisturizing. This shampoo bar will rinse clean and will leave hair soft and manageable without buildup. You can use standard conditioner or use a vinegar rinse. This bar lasts a long time and a little goes a long way! Just lather up your hands and rub them on your hair and you will have a really nice, frothy lather.
The soap is naturally dark in color because of the beer, and Titanium Dioxide (a mineral) makes up the froth on the top. Although it looks like beer, don’t let it fool you! It’s got Musk Fragrance oil in it so it smells lush and wonderful! Perfect for both men and women. Each bar is approx 4oz.
Ingredients: Saponified Coconut oil, Beer, Titanium Dioxide, Musk Fragrance Oil.
