This Sesame Aloe Shampoo Bar was created for persons with dry scalp and hair, but it can also be used for persons with normal hair or scalp. This is a recipe I keep stocked for people with extra sensitive dry scalp. It was created with fresh cut garden Aloe. Aloe gel adds an extra touch of extra body compared to my other shampoo bars. Organic Sesame oil was chosen for it's nourishing properties as well, as it is used frequently for dry skin formulations in Traditional Chinese herbology. Organic Jojoba and Raw Unrefined Shea Butter are also included to condition the hair and scalp. This soap is balanced to provide a stable lather for shampooing the hair. I also include a small amount Lavender and a small amount of Patchouli essential oils. To use the shampoo bars just wet the hair and rub the bar onto a couple of areas on the hair. Then work up the lather with your hands.

We have a new vegan version of this shampoo bar. Find it here:

How to wash hair with a shampoo bar:
Washing with a shampoo bar is pretty simple. First you wet your hair thoroughly, the rub the shampoo bar in a few a patches in your hair. Then work up the lather with your hands. Make sure the lather is worked in through all of your hair and down to your scalp in order give your hair a complete cleaning. Then rinse your hair with fresh water making sure to get out all the shampoo. Rinsing your hair with bath tub water that already has soap mixed in with it will not give you a clean rinse. I wash with my shampoo bars every 2 to 3 days, or more often if I have been getting dirty in the garden or have been working out strenuously.

Transitioning to Shampoo Bars:
For some people it takes longer than others to adjust to shampoo bars. This depends on a lot of factors including if there is build up from other products in your hair. Also if the shampoo you have been using strongly strips your natural oils, then your scalp may seem to over produce sebum when you switch to a milder shampoo. Read this blog post if you need help transitioning.
