How To Use A Shampoo Bar

Are you curious about how something that looks like a soap washes and nourishes your hair?

So was I at first...

  • Will this thing lather well?
  • Will it actually clean my hair properly?
  • And then, how in the world do I actually use it!?

Switching to a Shampoo & Conditioner Bar is one of the most eco-effective switches you can make in your household.

Once you’ve used up your shampoo bar it’s gone… like COMPLETELY gone!

Before I share the video that shows you how to actually use them, there are some other cool shampoo bar benefits that you should know about:

  • They're designed to last 2x longer than your regular bottled shampoo.
  • They are drain-safe & gentle on the waterways.
  • They’re vegan-friendly, cruelty free AND handmade in the USA ♡

Wait wait, one more thing, they’re better for you too... They’re made with 100% natural ingredients and use no harsh-chemicals!

Okay, now we can show you how to use them, here’s a video I recorded…

If you can’t watch the video, here are some written instructions:

  1. Wet your hair
  2. Rub the bar between your hands creating a lather (this happens within seconds)
  3. Apply to hair, massage
  4. Or apply bar directly to hair gently, in either a circular motion or from root to end
  5. Rinse
  6. Repeat 
  7. Use the same method with conditioner - but no need to rinse & repeat
  8. The conditioner is safe to use on roots - give it a go. It depends on what your hair likes/needs. We are all different here at ZWC. Some of us use it only on our ends and others all the way from end to root!
  9. Run your fingers through your hair in the shower - and if there are still tangles or knots, you haven’t used enough. There should be very minimal effort to comb their wet hair after they get out of the shower.

If you want to try these shampoo bars, you can do so with no-risk-whatsoever.  

We know how daunting it can be switching over to a new product. So we created a 30-day trial period for you. In other words, if you don’t love them, let us know and we will refund you the full amount.
