Why Shampoo Bars Instead of Liquid?
Great question! Shampoo bars are first and foremost, portable. This makes them great for travelers (no worry on limited liquid size), campers and those who want less waste in package (these require none). These melt and pour shampoo bars last a long time and there is less waste than with a traditional liquid shampoo. Even if this shampoo bar doesn’t become your daily hair cleansing go-to they are great to have on hand!
Why Rosemary and Cedarwood Essential Oils?
Rosemary essential oil is said to aid in stimulating hair growing, promote circulation and ease dry and itchy scalps or dandruff. Cedarwood essential oil is said to help those with thinning hair and alopecia by stimulating the hair follicles and circulation.
