Shampoo bars again :)
My hair routine goes something like this:
Day 1: mid afternoon oil up a lot with straight castor or coconut oils. Castor is really sticky so I'll let it sit just as for a few hours so not to cause tangles.
detangle (with my Tangle Teezer brush if I already did this "Day Zero") later in the evening
use a shampoo bar to wash my hair
Let dry loose overnight
Day 2: Throw in a bun in the morning and go
My hair wont have completely dried so I'll let it air dry some more that evening and put it up again after oiling
Day 4: Take down hair and fingercomb it out
Oil it up with something light like jojoba oil and put it in a bun again
Day 7: Take it down and see if it needs to be brushed out or just finger combed. There is a 90% chance the answer is just to finger comb it- I dont get tangles much
Oil the ends if they are dry
Day 9: Repeat Day 7
Day 12: Repeat Day 7 and oil if you didnt on Day 9. Perhaps brush out just to loosen scalp oils that are building up a little
Day 14 This will be a Friday-- Repeat Day 1.
How does this happen? That I only rarely have to wash my hair?
Because shampoo bars are awesome! They clean the hair shaft and scalp and leave little to no residue unlike the commercial (liquid) shampoos you see.
Instead, they are healthy, natural, and even have essential oils to promote hair growth!
That was exactly my experience with these bars. My sister and I have been testing two of them out this past month and they are great!
Nicole of Coley Soaps told me "I first set out to make my shampoo soap to avoid chemicals in commercial soaps. The "no-poo" of baking soda didn't work for my hair type, but I found this bar works great for me, my husband, and some of my more "adventurous" friends and family who have decided to try it out"
She gave me:
Bright Spot---Made with Lemongrass, Lavender and Ylang Ylang essential oils, and dried Rose Petals Smells sweet.
Little Bear----Made with Cedarwood, Sweet Orange and Lavender essential oils, and dried Orange Peel. Smells woody.
Plan B is to give away half of the Little Bear (YELLOW) Bar which I totally am excited about!
($3 value, but easily 25 shampoos)
He writes: I am a general and trauma surgeon with over thirty years of experience. I have been compounding my own hand conditioning products since 1990. Over the years, “scrubbing in” and alcohol-containing antiseptics wrecked havoc on my hands. Cracked and dry skin was a continual problem for me. Excellent skin integrity was the primary requirement of surgeons of the past. This requirement would have disqualified me in the pre- glove era of a century ago. Even with gloves, I had to work out a solution to maintain my skin integrity in order to continue in my profession. The Nature’s 22 formula was born.
With its success, I have been able to continue my practice in general and trauma surgery to this day. I have made countless batches of my compound and supplied nurses and patients with it for years with great results. As the formula has evolved, the rapidity of skin restoration has improved. The current formula, which was perfected April 2012, is the result of feedback from many health care professionals and colleagues. I use only the most natural and organic compounds available to achieve optimum skin restoration. The 22 natural and organic ingredients used are the direct result of my 20+ years of experimentation and refinement.

Promising the balm "Restores and Replenishes Dry, Cracked Skin" I have to agree. Its seems great for healing blemishes on my face and there are lots of great reviews from traumatic injuries here
