I’m so excited to give you the first update on the chamomile soap bar as a shampoo. So, I left you at day 3 where the hair felt greasy. Day 4 (no wash) definitely felt greasy 🤢. I tried to ignore it 😉
So this is day 7, 4th wash. Not getting much of a lather so I don’t know if my hair is actually greasy or if it’s just the build up. I’m still lathering the soap up in my hand. My hair is still quite dull.
Day 9, 5th wash. REVELATION! I still wasn’t getting much of a lather so I then gave my head a quick rub with the bar. There was an explosion of tight foamy lather! If my hubby had been home you’d be looking at a photo of me in the shower right now 😂. I couldn’t believe the difference..I didn’t even rub it that much. My hair felt completely different. There was a very, very slight stickiness but hardly noticeable.
So these two are today – 11th day, 6th wash. I actually think I could have left it another day as it’s very frizzy (the first picture). I left it a few hours then tried the hair straighteners (didn’t fancy using them while it felt sticky 😆). It’s amazing. I can’t believe that I’ve only been using the soap bar for 11 days. That, and the apple cider vinegar is a complete revelation. I’m definitely converted.
I’ll update again in a couple of weeks as I’m going to try leaving my hair an extra day before I wash it too. It’ll be great if I can cut down the amount I actually use 💚 I’m also happy to recommend my soap bars as shampoo bars 😀
Have you been trying any too? I’d love to hear about them ☺️
