green and gold shampoo bar
The ultimate conditioning solid shampoo bar great for all hair types that is just as wonderful for the whole body - even gentle enough to use as a facial cleanser. Lasts ages, perfect for travelling and clears your bathroom of more plastic bottle clutter. Step out of the shower with hair and skin that feel silky soft and smell divine.
With a luscious, hydrating lather thanks to the fresh, organic, locally foraged aloe vera juice and a highly nourishing blend of organic olive, avocado and sunflower oils to gently cleanse hair without drying out or overly stripping the scalp. Leaves scalp and hair feeling clean, soft and shiny, no heaviness, plenty of lather, safe for sensitive skin. Scented with all natural Australian essential oils grapefruit and native rosalina, for a fresh, herbal aroma.
Lather up in hands to use on face, body and hair or gently rub wet bar onto wet hair at the roots and work up a good lather and rinse well. If your hair is longer hair glide along the lengths too. Depending on how frequently you wash your hair with shampoo (we recommend once a week at most - less is best to allow your scalp to regulate its natural oils!) or how oily / dirty your hair is you may find it better to lather up and rinse twice, first round to loosen the greasiness, second round to leave hair truly clean and soft. In between washes it's good practice to regularly brush your hair from the roots as this helps stimulate the follicles and balance those important natural oils.
This bar has been formulated by a curly girl chemist to do the work of a conditioner AND shampoo (cos we're lazy and like an all-in-one product) but if you have curly or very dry hair or scalp, we highly recommend using a preconditioning oil before shampooing. The chia seed hair tonic is perfect for this, and can be used as a leave-in conditioner / styling oil too.
Simply distribute a small amount of the tonic through strands and scrunch into ends while hair is still wet. To use as a pre-conditioning oil, pop 5-6 squirts directly into scalp, massage vigorously into roots and brush through to distribute through to ends. Let it absorb into the scalp and hair follicles for as long as you can be bothered (10mins is good, overnight is better) then lather up in the shower and wash out as normal. The combination will leave your scalp extra hydrated and happy and your hair silky soft.

'It's brilliant. I hadn't tried shampoo bars for the longest time because unless they had SLS in them, they didn't lather up and get through all of this hair properly, but this one, this must have magic ingredients in it! It's so fantastic, I can't recommend it enough' - Coco, who loves my green and gold shampoo bar for her long thick hair
