The Transition to natural shampoo, issues and tips:

There is a transition when you switch from the standard chemical shampoos to a natural shampoo bar, commonly called ‘the purge’. When you first begin, your hair or scalp may become oily or dry or a bit of back and forth between the two. Your hair may feel frizzy or waxy like there is a residue still left over in your hair. Don’t panic, this is just your hair adjusting, your scalp needs time to rebalance oil production. It usually lasts about a week (depending on how damaged your hair is) and it will go away. Stick with it, once your hair has adjusted it will feel softer, cleaner and more manageable. This is because shampoo bars CLEAN and CONDITION your hair and scalp without stripping it of its natural sebum. If you have dandruff problems, you may find this clears up because your scalp is not getting dried out and your body is no longer reacting to the chemicals.

Tips for an easy transition:

  1. Use an apple cider vinegar rinse rather than conditioner, this will help to restore the pH balance of your scalp and remove old chemicals. (recipe below). It will also protect the hair shaft and give your hair shine.
  2. Gently brush your hair often, twice a day is good. Brush from scalp to tips to help redistribute your hairs natural oil.
  3. Give your hair a few days in between washings to allow it to adjust
  4. Rinse thoroughly after washing to remove all of the shampoo.
  5. Try using a bit of dry shampoo or corn starch if your hair is feeling oily, rub a small amount into scalp then brush through
  6. Try using a little argon oil through your hair to help calm frizz and tangles.
  7. If you have a lot of product build up, try the baking soda rinse below before washing your hair with the shampoo bar.
Apple cider vinegar spritz
  • 1 part apple cider vinegar (use the type with the mother)
  • 4 parts water
  • A few drops of your preferred essential oil.

The vinegar smell does not remain once your hair dries

Baking Soda Clarifying Rinse Recipe

Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) is an easy clarifier to use. Baking soda can help to lifts grease and product residue from your hair.

  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 – 2 cups warm water

Combine the ingredients in a spray bottle or cup. Wet hair and spray the rinse on your hair and work it through. Rinse thoroughly with warm water, then shampoo.

Washing your hair:

Run the shampoo bar over your head in one direction (front to back), as to avoid causing unnecessary knots. Once you have a good amount of shampoo on top of your head, massage it into your scalp with your fingers. Rinse with water until ALL the shampoo is out… Done!
