Rosemary Rhassoul Shampoo Bar by Anarres
This vegetable glycerine based shampoo bar is an amazingly easy swap to make that will not only safe you money, but also will help nurture your hair naturally, creating shine, bounce and even help with dry itchy scalp! This shampoo is great for all hair types but will also work well on sensitive or dry scalps.
Rhassoul Clay has been used for centuries in the ancient world as a top beauty ingredient. Rhassoul clay is a natural clay mined in the Atlas Mountains of North Africa and is super rich in many minerals. It helps exfoliate dead skin as well as balance sebum secretion on the skin which helps fight off dandruff.
Rosemary can counter hair loss by stimulating blood circulation in the scalp, which, in turn, promotes hair growth. Its high nutritional value and anti-inflammatory properties make it an excellent ingredient for nourishing the hair follicles and soothing the scalp. It is known to thicken hair and add shine and help with dandruff and is often used by people who have thin, lustreless hair.
If you haven’t used shampoo bars before, your scalp may need to “re-learn” how much oil to make, as most store-bought shampoos strip away all oils meaning hair follicles counteract this & overproduce oil, so you will likely go through a greasy period of 1-3 weeks. After your scalp adjusts, the shampoo bar will work brilliantly!
To use, simply lather the shampoo bar in your hands and work it into your hair. Rinse thoroughly, and follow up with a lightly acidic conditioner. I use apple cider vinegar and spray directly onto the hair or pouring onto the scalp before rinsing again.
