Transition To Shampoo Bar. Don’t keep it at the bottom of your shower with water running over it. That means that while you’re taking care of the environment, you’re also saving money.
Commercial liquid shampoos and conditioners contain synthetic silicones and silica that coat your hair, to make it feel nice, but leave a residue in your hair. Rub it around in your hands. Be aware that some shampoo bars don’t produce lather.
Rub It Around In Your Hands.
Rinse, rinse, rinse and rinse again. As you transition to a gentle natural shampoo bar, your scalp needs time to rebalance scalp oil production. Get your shampoo bar slightly wet.
This Will Prolong The “Transition” Period So Step Away From The Dry Shampoo!
Usually, a shampoo bar that respects the ph of your scalp, such as vegancare bars, which are not made of soap, don’t require a transition period.

Try a really thorough double wash, many people struggle to get a good lather if their hair is coated in silicones so wet your hair and the shampoo bar, work the bar well into your hands to get a good lather and work this through your hair, run the bar down your hair, working the lather through all areas, give it a really good rub then rinse and repeat. During this transition period, which varies by person and hair type, hair may feel extra greasy or heavy.
