All of our soaps are made with 100% natural, Vegan ingredients and lovingly crafted at our cottage in the Herefordshire countryside.
We use the cold process method when making all our soaps and also a process called super-fatting. Doing this allows us to keep the free oils and the naturally occurring glycerine. This is what makes them so exceptionally moisturising.
Please Note: There is usually an adjustment period of about 1 month on chemically treated hair when using natural products.
To use the shampoo bar just wet your hair thoroughly and rub the bar over your head until you feel enough has been left on your hair to create a lather.
Wash as normal and you can then use your usual conditioner if you wish or you may find over time you will not need it as your hair is not stripped of its natural healthy oils.
If you live in a hard water area you may need to rinse or spray hair with a vinegar rinse of 1 tablespoon ACV (apple cider vinegar) per cup of warm water and rinse out.
Hints + Tips
Having greasy hair may be a fall out from using a commercial shampoo. Commercial detergent shampoo will have stripped your hair of its natural oils, your scalp would then have produced more oil to compensate for this. Therefore it may take a week or more for your scalp to rebalance its oil production, during this period you hair may feel greasy or heavy.
There is also the problem of product build up from commercial shampoo’s and conditioners which often contain waxes,
synthetic silicones, and silica that coat your hair, to make it “feel” nice, but leave a residue in your hair.
You can help remove this build up by rinsing you hair with 2 tablespoons of baking soda dissolved in a cup of warm water.
Also the water you are washing your hair with may be causing problems. Have you tried the apple cider vinegar rinse?
You may need to use a stronger solution than the one suggested above.
Another trick if you live in a hard water area is to add a tablespoon of baking soda to a pint of warm water. Use this solution to wet hair before shampooing. It can help the shampoo bar lather better and thus rinse out more thoroughly.
Please always make sure you have rinsed your hair thoroughly after shampooing.

Since our hand crafted soaps have no chemical preservatives, they deserve a little bit of attention to keep them happy and prolong their lives. All of our soaps have a high percentage of natural glycerine which is great for your skin as its incredibly moisturising but it also attracts water so it’s really important to keep them somewhere dry.
Our products are handmade, so there will be slight variations between batches which may affect product appearance, aroma and viscosity.
