im really tempted to try bar shampoo after reading all your posts. i hate showering and i know its super gross but sometimes i just get really depressed and its hard to do, but when my hair gets greasy after like a day/two days i HAVE to
I was having the same problem! I just stopped caring about my appearance for about a year before I discovered the wonder of shampoo bars! :D (beware the wall of text D:)
I have found that by cutting SLS products out of my daily routine I don’t feel so dirty by day 3 without a shower (depending on the weather of course) i’ve stopped using shower gel and wash with water only now~ :) This saves a lot of time and money! This includes shampoo!
My scalp needed a little while to adjust but it now produces less thick and gross sebum (oil) that doesn’t really feel dirty just like i oiled it with coconut oil or something. :) I’m also trying to stretch washes so that my scalp produces less sebum! Some people can go 10 days without washing their hair because their hair just doesn’t get oily so fast.
Once you start using the shampoo bar you won’t be stripping your hair of it’s natural oils so your scalp won’t go into sebum production overdrive! Also dry shampoo is your friend~ Not the gross store bought cans, baking soda or corn starch will absorb the excess oils if you want to avoid having a shower that day. :)
I would give them a go as you aren’t going to lose anything bar the oily scalp! :D This site is really helpful when you are going to switch from commercial shampoo’s to shampoo bars but there are organic shampoo’s without SLS or other nasties in it that are really good!
