Discover the Ease of Using a Shampoo Bar

Shampoo bars are all the rage these days, but what exactly are they, and how do you use them? I want to give you all the easy information you need to get the best experience using a shampoo bar, from their usage to their benefits.  

Here are some expert tips to make the switch to a solid shampoo on, read on! 

How to Use a Shampoo Bar 

Using a shampoo bar is straightforward, even if you’re used to liquid shampoo. Just follow these four simple steps: 

  1. Wet Your Hair Thoroughly: Ensure your hair is completely soaked.
  2. Apply the Bar: Rub the bar directly onto your scalp with a few good swipes all over your head.
  3. Lather Up: Put the bar aside and use both hands to massage your scalp, creating a rich lather.
  4. Rinse Well: Rinse your hair thoroughly. Follow up with conditioner if desired.

That’s it! Shampoo bars are easy to use, and once you get the hang of it, you might never want to go back to liquid shampoo. 


Pro Tips for Using a Shampoo Bar  

To enhance your shampoo bar experience, keep these pro tips in mind: 

– Store Properly: Keep your shampoo bar in a dry place, such as a soap dish with drainage holes. 

– Clarify Regularly: If you use styling products, consider using a clarifying agent periodically to remove buildup. Baking soda is a natural option that works gently to cleanse your hair. 

– Let It Dry: Allow the bar to dry between uses to prevent it from breaking down quickly. 


Benefits of Switching to a Shampoo Bar 

There are numerous benefits to switching from liquid shampoo to a solid shampoo bar: 

  1. Environmentally Friendly: Shampoo bars are eco-friendly as they require no plastic packaging, unlike liquid shampoos that come in hard-to-recycle bottles. Tangie zero waste shampoo bars give you want you need while leaving no waste behind. Even our boxes are home compostable :)
  2. Cost-Effective: Shampoo bars last longer than liquid shampoos, saving you money in the long run. Depending on hair length and how often you wash, one Tangie shampoo bar will replace 3 or more bottles of liquid shampoo!
  3. Travel-Friendly: Compact and spill-proof, shampoo bars are perfect for traveling – one shampoo bar can also serve as your body AND face bar while traveling! No need to worry about leaky bottles or TSA restrictions.
  4. Healthier Hair: Many people find that shampoo bars leave their hair feeling healthier due to the gentler ingredients that preserve natural oils. Many of our customers report they stop using conditioner after using a Tangie shampoo bar for a few weeks because their hair feels so soft. 
  5. Nourishing Ingredients: Our Tangie shampoo bars are infused with essential oils and botanical extracts that nourish your scalp and promote healthy hair.

You may have heard shampoo bars don’t lather or leaves hair feeling waxy – and that is true – some shampoo bars will that. Generally, the reason for the poor results is when a regular soap bar is marketed as a shampoo bar. We here at Tangie strive to be transparent with all things, especially what you can expect using our products. We want you to have the best results, so you keep coming back! Tangie natural shampoo bars are made with mild surfactants to clean your hair, provide a luxurious lather and leave you hair feeling soft and looking great.
