Amla & Coconut Milk Shampoo Bar - Funky Soap
This is a solid shampoo bar created with Amla which has been used for hair care by the ancient traditional Indian medicine Ayurveda for centuries.
Amla is known as the "Indian Gooseberry". It is rich in nutrients and vitamins promoting hair growth and a healthier scalp and hair. Amla is also good at fighting dandruff and scalp irritation. The Amla Powder has been infused in olive oil for 2 weeks prior to the making of the shampoo bar, and is the base of this bar.
Neem Oil, Avocado Oil and Coconut Milk are also added to this shampoo. The Coconut Milk provides extra nourishment and is widely used in Ayurvedic skin and hair care. This shampoo bar has a sweet and fruity scent.
It is an easy, fuss and plastic-free alternative to bottled shampoo (team it with one of our conditioner bars). Also ideal for travelling (no liquids restriction) and the gym. It is extremely economical to use and will last for a very long time. A fantastic way to banish plastic bathroom bottles!
Freshly handmade in the UK in small batches. Suitable for vegans, this conditioner bar contains no animal products and is not tested on animals.
Available as a 65g or 120g bar.
How to use a Shampoo Bar
When using the bars, one thing that is very important is to LATHER WELL! These shampoo bars are super fatted and thus contain extra oils and butters to nourish your hair. If you rub the shampoo bars on your hair, you are coating your hair with super fatted soap. If you do not lather up really well, you will have areas that remain coated with the soap oils, which will make it look and feel gummy or coated.
Don’t put the bar directly on your hair. Lather up in your hands or foam up on a sponge and wash with only the foam. It can be very helpful in making the hair less tacky until the adjustment takes place.
The most common spot, especially for people with long hair, is at the nape of the neck. 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. The weird hair feeling happens most often when the soap residue does not completely rinsed out of your hair.
So, lather up and then be sure to rinse, rinse, rinse! (You can leave the shampoo on your hair for a few minutes before rinsing for more effective cleansing). Again, if you have long hair, pay special attention to the middle back of the hair so that you rinse all of the soap out of your hair.
Don't give up, your hair will eventually adjust and it will be well worth it 💚🌍
