Hair Types and How to Cater For them 20

When looking for a shampoo, you need to find one with the right ingredients in it for your hair type. Whether you have dry hair, oily hair, or suffer from dandruff, there is a product for you!

Dry hair

If your hair is prone to dryness and splitting, you might find yourself at your wits end trying to find a solution. Look for products using oats and fenugreek which are great for restoring moisture, as well as anything with coconut oil or shea butter in. 

Oily hair

If you suffer from oily and greasy hair, you need a shampoo that is effective at cutting through the grease, without having to resort to abrasive chemicals. Look for products with citrus oils in them including lemon, lime, grapefruit or orange oil. Bergamot oil and tea tree oil are also great for greasy hair but just make sure there are lots of moisturizing ingredients in there as well as you don’t want to dry your hair out too much.

Normal hair

If you have what is considered as ‘normal hair’ then lucky you! This doesn’t mean that you don’t need to give it plenty of TLC. You need a product that leaves it soft and shiny whilst removing any build up that accumulates from products and pollution, ensuring that your normal hair, stays that way! Opt for a natural bar with lots of lovely oils and butters and without any chemicals such as SLS, or synthetic fragrances.

Dandruff and dry scalp

If you have a dry hair and a flaky scalp, you should hunt for products that include ingredients like goats milk, coconut oil, and lavender oil as these are all great for calming irritated skin. Steer clear of harsh chemicals or products that will strip your hair, instead opting for something a little more natural and gentle.

  1. Hi please can you recommend hair, face and body products, for my eczema prone skin.

    Many thanks

    1. Hi Tina, I would recommend any of the Peace With The Wild Skincare range, as it is made from 100% organic ingredients. It isn’t watered down at all so a little goes a long way! If you are looking for a soap, I would recommend the Primal Suds ‘Bare Coconuts’ as this has great soothing properties and is perfect for sensitive skin. The Organic Essence Shea Butter would also be suitable, this made from 100% natural pure shea butter and is great for dry and dehydrated skin, it can be a little hard to spread so work it in your fingers before applying. As for hair, all of the shampoo bars are made from 100% natural ingredients but i would either go for the Bain & Savon Coconut Milk or Primal Suds Fungeek (for Dry Hair) as these have very moisturising properties. I hope this helps, please let us know if I can help with anything else!

  2. Can you recommend a solid shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair? Don’t hate me, at least I’m changing some of my damaging behaviours where I can easily do so…. My hair is also fine.
    …. I’m not against leave in conditioners on the ends of the hair…..
    Thank you

    1. Hi Dawn, all of our shampoo bars are made from 100% natural ingredients so they won’t strip any colour out of your hair!

      We have the Chamomile for Light Hair shampoo bar and the Rosemary for Dark Hair, as well as lots more! But either of these can be used on any coloured hair.

      We also do different conditioner bars for different hair types – normal, dry, oily, heat damaged. I would recommend to only use a conditioner bar once you are through your transition period. The shampoo bars are very conditioning themselves so you may find that you don’t even need one!

  3. I have curly hair and currently follow curly girl friendly method. What shampoo bar and conditioner bar would you recommend please!

    1. Hi there, any of the shampoo bars would be fine for your curly locks but i would recommend trying the Coconut Milk shampoo bar as you may find that the coconut milk will help to tame the frizz (if your hair tends to frizz). With regards to a conditioner bar, we have different conditioner bars for different hair types – dry, oily, normal, heat damaged. So just pick your hair type!
      I would recommend to not use the conditioner bar until you are through the transition period though!

  4. Hi my hair is currently coloured blonde which of your shampoo products would you recommend?

    1. Hi Pauline, all of our shampoo bars are made from 100% natural ingredients so they won’t strip the hair at all! We do have the Chamomile Shampoo Bar for Blonde Hair that would best suit you, although this can be used on any hair colour. I hope this helps!

  5. Hi my hair is grey and thick and naturally curly. What would you recommend?

    1. Hi Christelle, I would recommend the Bain & Savon Shampoo Nettle & Marshmellow shampoo bar. This shampoo bar created to smooth and rehydrate dry, lackluster, and/or curly, hard-to-manage hair. It softens the hair naturally and is 100% natural. If this is your first time using a 100% natural shampoo bar, your hair may need to transition. Check out our blog on transitions periods.

      I would also recommend to not use a conditioner bar until you are through the transition period (that is if you need to transition) https://www.peacewiththewild.co.uk/the-ultimate-guide-to-natural-shampoo/

    2. Any suggestions for very fine hair please? I need something which doesn’t weigh it down.
      Thanks

      1. Hi Helen,
        I would reccomend the Bain & Savon Nettle & Marshmellow shampoo bar. The nettle in the shampoo increases blood flow to your scalp. It also oxygenates your hair follicles and strengthens hair fibers, promoting healthier, shinier, fuller hair. It is also used to treat dandruff. I hope this helps!

  6. Hi, my hair is fine, short and fly away, which products would you recommend.

    1. Hi Malc, I would recommend the Bain & Savon Coconut Milk shampoo bar to nourish the hair or alternatively the Primal Suds Fungeek shampoo bar for Dry Hair!

  7. Hi what shampoo and conditioner bars do you recommend for dry thinning hair?

    1. Hi Kim, I would recommend the Bain & Savon Nettle & Marshmallow shampoo bar or the Primal Suds shampoo bar for Dry Hair!

  8. Hi,

    Are these products suitable for hard water?

    1. Hi Stella, all of the products are suitable for a hard water area. Sometimes in hard water areas, people may struggle with the transition period of 100% natural shampoo bars. In which case we recommend the Beauty Kubes as these still contain 1 synthetic ingredients, meaning the hair won’t need to transition!

  9. Hi, I am looking at changing to a shampoo bar could you recommend which would be best for an itchy dry scalp? Thank you

    Siobhan Holcombe
    1. Hi Siobhan, I would recommend the Bain & Savon Nettle & Marshmallow shampoo bar. The nettle increases blood flow to the scalp so should help with the itchiness.Alternatively, you could try the Fenugeek shampoo bar for Dry Hair. It contains added oat milk and rolled oats for their moisturising qualities and also contains fenugreek powder which is packed with lecithin which with prolonged use can benefit dryness!
