Going From Bottled to Conditioner Bar

Happy Monday. We have shared how to best wash and condition your hair with our bars, but I still get questions about the conditioner bars. I suppose that is because they behave differently than bottled conditioners. Let me explain.

The shampoo bar behaves much like bottled shampoo. Once you wet it and rub it into your hair, you will make luscious suds, and then you put the shampoo bar down and proceed like you would if you were using bottled shampoo. Easy and simple. However, the process feels very different regarding the conditioner bar. Let me explain.

Wet the conditioner bar, and rub it into your scalp. It feels nothing like bottled conditioner. It almost feels like nothing is happening. No suds. No lotion feel. Just a slightly silky feel. Very slight. The key is to rub the wet bar into your scalp and down your hair to the ends. Rub, rub, rub. Unlike bottled conditioners, you will not overuse the conditioner bar. You can and must work this into your scalp and hair. Please leave it in for a couple of minutes. Feel your hair for areas that still feel tangled, and then go back and rub the conditioner bar back into those tangled areas. And while you wait a few minutes for the conditioner bar's nutrients to do their magic, go ahead and rub the bar over the areas you need to shave. Yes, it works fantastically as a shaving lotion. Again, it feels much different than a traditional shaving lotion, but it does a beautiful job of giving you a clean and close shave as well as leaving your skin feeling silky soft. When ready, rinse your hair well from the conditioner.

As described, this process is very different from using a bottled conditioner. With bottled conditioners, the concern has always been using too much, leaving your hair flat and dull and clumpy. But with our conditioner bars, you can work their magic into your hair when you take the time to rub the scalp and hair with the bar's healthy nutrient-full ingredients. Once you get the conditioning bar process down, you will be happy and even amazed by the results.

Final tip. It is Summertime, which also means humidity; I sometimes need to use a dry conditioner bar on my dry hair. I rub the dry conditioner bar over the troublesome areas. It's not a cure for humidity, but it does help smooth out flyaways and helps flatten troublesome regions. 

Until I type again,
