Unlike other natural shampoo bars this actually contains apple cider vinegar which helps tremendously with the transition period, this is one of the best natural shampoos I have used!

When you first start using natural shampoos there is an adjustment period where you hair need to rid itself of all the chemical residues left from traditional shampoos, please see my blog on how to use natural shampoo bars
Our Wild Sage + Co natural shampoo bar has been formulated with lots of beautifully cold pressed UK rapeseed oil and organic apple cider vinegar along with their home grown rosemary, infused extra virgin olive oil.
Wild Sage + Co soaps are made with 100% natural, Vegan ingredients and lovingly crafted at their cottage in the Herefordshire countryside.
All of their soaps are made using the cold process method as well as a process called super-fatting. Doing this allows the soaps to keep the free oils and the naturally occurring glycerine. This is what makes them so exceptionally moisturising.
Wild Sage & Co soaps are wrapped in recycled paper, which can be composted or recycled!

How To Use
Please Note: There is usually an adjustment period of about 1 month on chemically treated hair when using natural products.
To use the shampoo bar just wet your hair thoroughly and lather up the shampoo from the bar using your hands to then spread over your head until you feel enough has been left on your hair to create a lather.
Wash as normal and you can then use your usual conditioner if you wish or you may find over time you will not need it as your hair is not stripped of its natural healthy oils.
If you live in a hard water area you may need to rinse or spray hair with a vinegar rinse of 1 tablespoon ACV (apple cider vinegar) per cup of warm water and rinse out.
Hints + Tips
Having greasy hair may be a fall out from using a commercial shampoo. Commercial detergent shampoo will have stripped your hair of its natural oils, your scalp would then have produced more oil to compensate for this. Therefore it may take a week or more for your scalp to re-balance its oil production, during this period you hair may feel greasy or heavy.
There is also the problem of product build up from commercial shampoo’s and conditioners which often contain waxes, synthetic silicones, and silica that coat your hair, to make it “feel” nice, but leave a residue in your hair.
You can help remove this build up by rinsing you hair with 2 tablespoons of baking soda dissolved in a cup of warm water.
Also the water you are washing your hair with may be causing problems. Have you tried the apple cider vinegar rinse?
You may need to use a stronger solution than the one suggested above.
Another trick if you live in a hard water area is to add a tablespoon of baking soda to a pint of warm water. Use this solution to wet hair before shampooing. It can help the shampoo bar lather better and thus rinse out more thoroughly.
Please always make sure you have rinsed your hair thoroughly after shampooing.
Since natural hand crafted soaps have no chemical preservatives, they deserve a little bit of attention to keep them happy and prolong their lives.
All Wild Sage + Co soaps have a high percentage of natural glycerine which is great for your skin as its incredibly moisturising but it also attracts water so it’s really important to keep them somewhere dry or in a soap dish.
When you are not using them it’s best to keep them out of water on a well drained surface so that it completely dries between uses. Use a soap dish (wooden dishes with open slats are perfect) or you could even be a bit creative and use a few pebbles from the garden.
This will help make it last so you can get the most from your soap and enjoy feeling naturally fresh and fragrant for as long as possible!
Other important information:
As with any skin care product, if irritation develops discontinue use, and, as with any soap, avoid contact with eyes.
About Wild Sage & Co
Wild Sage & Co came to life back in 2013 in the countryside of Herefordshire, where a passion to use natural ingredients for everyday use sparked a desire to provide products other people can use.
Julie, Rosanna and Georgia run the small family business using herbs and flowers from their cottage garden to blend into their soaps and skincare products. They believe skincare should be kept simple using natural ingredients from local sources, which I am a firm believer in!
When I think of Wild Sage & Co it fills me with memories of being in the garden with my mum and sister nurturing the plants we have worked hard to grow. One of the many reasons I love this company is because their values are something I strongly believe in and I can relate to how they work and live using their very own garden to create products they can be proud of.
All of the Wild Sage & Co products are made from 100% natural ingredients and their packaging is eco-friendly, not a single plastic bottle or tub in sight! Their packaging is made from glass and aluminium so not only is it healthier for you but the environment too.
