The negative reviews and feedbacks of shampoo bars and how to fix them
Using a shampoo bar doesn't always work right the first time. Beautiful silky hair overnight and the perfect hairstyle from the first brushing is not everyone's story. Sometimes you have to try several shampoos that are right for you.
How to avoid an itchy scalp?
It sometimes happens that when you wash your hair with solid shampoo, it does not flake the top of the head properly. Although it can leave an irritation, which is rare, it is primarily related to the cleaning of the scalp and especially the frequency. To keep the scalp from getting in the way, you should try to scratch your upper head more vigorously. This will better remove impurities and prevent you from having to scratch yourself.
My shampoo bar does not foam
This is completely normal. The foam to which we are used is made from synthetic surfactant, the famous phthalates. Suspected of being carcinogenic, it is best to avoid them. Shampoo bars use natural foaming agents, but while harmless to health, will lather a little less. However, less lather does not mean that washes less well. You can use a natural sponge to obtain a creamy, naturally washing foam.
It leaves the hair sticky
Hair is sometimes rebellious. The lack of smoothing and detangling products can give this sticky effect. To remedy this, you can opt for a conditioner bar that will perfectly detangle your hair. The other option is to do a simple white vinegar rinse. It will serve as an effective detangling agent and voila. All you have to do is style them.
