I used to look at shampoo bars and think "how do I use this thing?!" I just wasn't confident that a bar of soap could cleanse my hair properly or even be gentle. The bar I'm using in this video is by Hydratherma Naturals. I don't have scalp issues but I enjoy the cooling sensation of this bar. It is also very gentle and non-stripping.

So the first step when using a shampoo bar is actually a pretty important one and that is getting your hair completely soaked. This is a bar of soap. It is not going to glide over your hair smoothly if it is not completely wet. So I have edited out the time it takes to get my hair fully soaked.
*Enter my shampoo bar* This bar is by Hydratherma Naturals. It's the Organic Scalp Soothing Shampoo Bar with Tea Tree and Peppermint Oil.
You see my applying it basically like someone would apply a relaxer. I get my front hairline first and then I flip my hair [over] and I start to do the back of my hairline. Then you see me splitting my hair into sections and I start applying it further into my hair. The whole goal is I want to apply it around four big sections.
Then, I spend some time working it into my scalp and moving the shampoo from those borders to cover my entire scalp.
Now here's where I bring the bar out one more time. This is to run the bar over the length of my hair. If I was using liquid shampoo I would just squeeze the hair at my roots and bring the shampoo down the length of my hair. I find that with a shampoo bar I can't do that. I can't get a decent amount of the shampoo to come down from my scalp onto my hair so I actually have to rub the bar on my hair.
Then I spend a little time working the lather into the rest of my hair.
By the way, that face that I made when I started rinsing is because this shampoo has a cooling sensation. So, how cool is that?
Anyway, That's just me rinsing my hair, I'm pretty much done!
