Nettle is known to increase blood flow to your scalp, it also oxygenates your hair follicles and strengthens the hair fibres, promoting healthier, shinier, fuller hair. Nettle is also used to treat dandruff. Bain and Savon use their own nettle and marshmallow root infusion grown in their very own vegetable garden.
This is a natural shampoo, hand made using the cold process soap making. It is free from preservatives and SLS, Bain and Savon only use natural ingredients, suitable for vegans, no animal testing, a healthy alternative to commercial shampoo, free from chemicals.
When you first switch to natural shampoo bars, you may go through what is called a “transition phase”. During this time your hair may feel oily, and feel it has a waxy residue on it.
Why does this happen?
There are three reasons this happens:
You may live in a hard water area.Conventional shampoos and conditioners contain silicone to make your hair feel soft and look shiny. These products leave residues that natural products find hard to remove.Conventional shampoos tend to remove your natural oils causing your scalp to react and over-produce oils to compensate. So because natural shampoo bare are more gentle it may take time for your scalp to adjust to a new washing method.

How to Use
Please Note: There is usually an adjustment period of about 1 month on chemically treated hair when using natural products.
Comb out dry hair before shampooing. Do not miss this step, especially if you use styling products.
Wet bar and lather in hands, apply lather to hair. Or alternatively rub bar directly onto hair and lather well (this works well for me - mid/long length hair).*
*When using the bars, one thing that is very important is to lather the soap up really well, and to use lots of lather when washing your hair. The most common spot, especially for people with long hair, is at the back of the head. You need to work the shampoo into your hair with water and lather up so that the dirt and extra oils not needed by your hair can be washed away. If you are used to using normal commercial shampoo and shampoo twice, you will notice that the second wash produces a lot more lather. The first wash is mixing with the dirt and excess oil in your hair so the second wash is working on cleaner hair. The same is true for our shampoo bars. So lather up, once or twice. But please make sure to rinse every single time! And then make sure to use an apple cider vinegar hair rinse!
Massage lather into roots and through lengths of hair. Rinse out thoroughly.
We recommend using our Botanical Hair Rinse for amazing, bouncy & shiny hair but also to get rid of any soap/grease or product residue. Spray hair rinse thoroughly from roots to ends, comb and/or massage through. Leave on for about 20 seconds, then rinse out. Repeat if necessary. Important: Vinegar scent will disappear when hair dries.
Please don’t use your shampoo bar once or twice and decide you don’t like it, everyone’s hair is different and it may take a little time for your hair to adjust. It may take up to two weeks to rid your hair from all the residue left over from the chemicals in the commercial shampoos. Give your hair time to adjust to the lack of chemicals and hair product build up. But stick it out and get through this period and you will realise just how much healthier your hair is, it will be soft and shiny in no time!
Comes packaged in a recyclable cardboard box.
I’m really enjoying using this shampoo bar. It lathers up quickly and hair feels clean and soft meaning that I don’t have to use conditioner. I’m waiting to see how my scalp reacts to it but so far so good.
