How to Use Solid Shampoo and Conditioners 1

For first time users, it can be a bit hard to know what to do when confronted with solid shampoo and conditioner bars. But trust us, once you get the hang of it, you won’t look back! Here is a step by step guide to eliminating plastic and chemicals and using solid bars on your hair instead!


  1. Get in the shower, make sure the water is warm and thoroughly soak your hair. When using solid products, remember the wetter the better!
  2. Next you can apply the shampoo. Hold the bar in your hand and apply it directly to the hair and head, starting at the scalp. Move the bar in circular motions throughout the lengths of the hair and to create a slight lather.
  3. Place the bar on a soap dish that allows drainage and massage your hair using your fingers, gradually working the shampoo through the roots right to the tips.
  4. Once you have distributed the shampoo throughout the whole of the hair and scalp, you can rinse the hair, ensuring you remove all traces of the product.
  5. Now it is time to apply the conditioner! 
  6. Hold the conditioning bar in your hand and run it along the length of your hair starting from your forehead, ending at the nape of your neck. If your hair is longer than average, lift it off your neck and work the bar in circular motions at the back of your head.
  7. Massage the hair from root to tip, ensuring that the product is distributed thoroughly throughout.
  8. Leave on the hair for around 2-3 minutes for maximum effectiveness.
  9. Rinse out, ensuring to remove all of the product from the hair. If however, you have particularly coarse or dry hair, you can leave some of the conditioner behind to have a leave-in conditioner effect.
  10. After you have finished showering, very gently use a cotton towel to remove excess moisture from the hair.
  11. Once you have removed most of the liquid, use an eco-friendly brush or comb to very gently tease out the tangles, being careful not to be too rough.
  12. If you hair still feels tangly, you can use a bit of conditioner on your hands and run it through the ends to ease brushing.
