Cleansing is a regular part of caring for natural hair. Healthy hair requires it to be cleaned regularly but outside of that your choice on how to do so is up to you. Many simply use shampoo, cowashes, clays and even some use only water but for many naturals they are happy using shampoo but not in the traditional sense. A shampoo bar is an all natural conditioning shampoo in a solid bar form.
They are made from “all natural” ingredients and naturals love them because they tend to be free of sulfates and silicones and are made from moisturizing oils and gentle cleansers. They last longer than liquid shampoos, are biodegradable, safe to use and nourish the hair and scalp.
