That's it: you've finally purchased the right shampoo bar and solid conditioner for your hair type, and you're ready to start your new zero-plastic-waste hair care routine! Congratulations! However, if this is your first time, it may take some getting used to and a few instructions to get the hair of your dreams without plastic waste!
Don't panic, we’ve got you covered!
- Wet your hair.
- Rub the shampoo bar between your hands or directly onto your hair and lather.
- Massage your scalp thoroughly and rinse abundantly.
- Repeat the steps a second time if necessary, for example, if you have been sweating, if you feel your scalp has a lot of oil build-up or if you use styling products.
- Apply conditioner to wet hair after shampooing.
- Slide the bar through your hair, concentrating on the ends.
- Wait 3 to 5 minutes, then rinse. While you're waiting for the conditioner to work its full moisturizing and detangling magic, turn off the water to save it, or maximize your time under the nozzle to do the other steps in your skincare routine (body wash, scrub, etc). You can also use this time to sing your favorite song! Discover our personal fav’ !
How do I store leaves barTM hair products?
To ensure that your shampoo and conditioner bars last you a long time and perform well, it is important to store them away from humidity so they can dry between uses. We recommend storing them in a soap dish with a drip tray, away from the direct stream of the shower.
If you're a traveler and plan to take your leaves barTM hair care products with you on the road, store them in an airtight container when they're dry, and be sure to dry them between uses. Never again will you have to deal with the unpleasant surprise of liquid bottles leaking all over your suitcase!
How long does a solid shampoo and conditioner last?
ATTITUDE leaves barTM shampoos and conditioners come in a 113-gram bar format, which is larger than most hair care bars on the market. How long they last depends on how much hair you have and how often you wash it. During our testing phase, we found that one bar lasts about as long as a standard bottle of shampoo, maybe a bit longer! Our main goal in creating the hair care bars was to eliminate single-use plastic from our daily lives. The fact that they last a little longer is an added bonus!
