Goat Milk Shampoo Bar Directions

by | Dec 2, 2023 | Homestead | 0 comments

If you’ve never used a shampoo bar before, it may take a little while (a couple of days to a couple of weeks) for your hair to adjust. Conventional hair products continuously strip the natural oils, thereby causing your scalp to produce excess oil. Many people find that their scalp adjusts immediately to a natural shampoo.  But for others, it can take several weeks for your scalp to adjust to the shampoo bar and stop producing excess oil. The trick to successfully using the shampoo bar is not to use too much.
The scalp produces oils that protect the hair shaft and prevent breakage. So when you are washing your hair, it is just as important (if not more important) to clean the scalp and not just the hair. No matter the length of your hair, you want to be sure to massage your scalp as you are using the shampoo bar.
You are not trying to produce a ton of lather like you get with commercial store-bought shampoos that use foaming agents which just make for great lather and don’t necessarily clean your hair better (marketing has done wonders on us to think we need tons of lather to clean our hair).
People use the shampoo bar differently – some people prefer to rub it right on their hair while others prefer to lather it in their hands first. So experiment to see which you prefer. Some people also follow through with a vinegar rinse vs. a store bought conditioner.
