Friendly Soap make their Lavender and Tea Tree Shampoo bar with castor oil because its been used for centuries as a natural conditioner and scalp treatment. They added it to coconut and olive oil, giving their lavender and tea tree shampoo bar extra richness and a wonderful ability to moisturise. Meanwhile, the bar’s essential oils of lavender and tea tree do a great job of promoting healthy hair growth and providing antibacterial properties too. All in all, not a bad CV for a bar that’s small enough for travelling with but powerful enough to outlast three bottles of shampoo.
Ok, so you love the thought of using a more caring shampoo that’s completely natural, but you’re worried about making the switch from your usual chemical goo. Don’t be. It might take a few washes to make the transition – or ‘purge’ as it’s sometimes called – but it’s easy enough if you follow our simple tips (also take a look at the ‘how to use’ tab for a step by step guide)
At first, your scalp might become slightly oily or dry, or flip between the two. It might feel frizzy or waxy too, like there’s a bit of residue left in it. Don’t panic – this is normal, and it’s just your hair’s way of adjusting because your scalp needs time to rebalance its natural oil production. This stage usually lasts around one week, depending on just how much damage using chemical shampoos has done. Stick with it!
Once your hair has adjusted it will feel softer, cleaner and much more manageable, and that’s because natural shampoo bars clean and condition your hair without stripping it of its natural sebum. Any dandruff might disappear too, because your scalp isn’t being dried out and your skin isn’t reacting to those nasty chemicals bottled shampoos are full of.
The following may affect the performance of natural shampoo bars…
- Dyed hair, natural shampoo bars are not formulated for coloured hair so some may experience fading.
- Treated hair, the harsh chemicals in treatments and dyes can strip hair of its natural oils so this may reset the purging process.
- Hard water, some areas of the uk have ‘hard water’ this can effect the transition period and performance of this natural shampoo bar.
Each Lavender & Geranium Shampoo bar is handmade with coconut oil, castor oil, olive oil, lavender & geranium essential oils.

Just run the shampoo bar over your head in one direction, from front to back. This will help you to avoid creating any pesky knots. Once you’ve a good amount of shampoo on your head, massage it into your scalp using your fingers (or if you’re owed a treat, ask your other half to). Now rinse your hair with water until every drop of shampoo is out. That’s it – you’re done.
