Introducing Bobeam (Bo-bee-um) Customized Favors For All Occasions Shop :o)
Bobeam from the Ghanaian language Twi means 'the way it was created' and it characterizes all of the shop items - they are all handmade.

In this shop you will be able to purchase custom-made party/event favors for all occasions. The favors consist of handmade bath and body products made with natural ingredients.

You can customize what you want in your favor bags, i.e. body bars, butters and/or oils and if you have a color theme you can choose the scent and color of your favors as well.

Bobeam's specialty is shampoo bars (which can be used on the hair and body). They are made with all natural ingredients and they can be used on all hair types, including locs. The shampoo bars contain no SLS or SLES, detergents, surfactants, or sulfates. They are all-natural, 100% vegetable soap, non-comedogenic, hypo-allergenic and biodegradable. Feel free to check my ingredients on

Bobeam products are unscented unless otherwise stated in the description.

New to shampoo bars?

Well they work just like shampoo, but are just in a bar form :o) Just gently message the bar on wet hair - around the perimeter of your head, so starting from the edges inward. If you section your hair lather up each section. Once the lather forms, shampoo your hair as usual. This only needs to be done once, but for those who are heavy-handed with products like I am, feel free to lather again :o) Remember to follow with a conditioner after washing.

The regular sized bars - 3.8 oz - typically last as long as a 16 oz bottle of shampoo or much longer, depending on how long/how often you wash your hair.

A) Always use the pads of your fingers when washing, not your nails.
B) Do your final rinse with cool/tepid water to close your hair cuticles to help with detangling and shine.
C) Try to air dry your hair whenever possible, do not rub a towel on your hair to dry, but just blot until no longer dripping.
D) Rinse your shampoo bar and store in a dry area to prolong the life of the bar.
E) Shampoo bars can be used for your body as well.

*Shampoo Bars vs. Hard Water*

According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), over 85% of US homes have hard water. On average those with moderate to hard water have had little to no problem with residue from using the shampoo bars, but on occasions if there is a residue left behind due to minerals in moderate to hard water I suggest following with an ACV/tea rinse add (1tbsp apple cider vinegar to 1 cup of water/tea) right after washing or as your final rinse.

If you need a stronger remedy Lemon Juice, which contains citric acid, is a natural chelating agent (it bonds to minerals and metals left behind by moderate to hard water - rinsing them out of your hair) you can also use it as a final rinse. Rinse with 1/4 cup of lemon juice and 3/4 cups of water. Also, try 2 tablespoons of lemon juice mixed with conditioner - work into your hair, rinse and style.

***Whichever one you use remember to follow with a conditioner ***

* No hard water but still experience residue/waxy feeling*

I've found that for those who don't have moderate or hard water, and who have been using traditional shampoos for years experience a waxy/build-up feeling after using the shampoo bars for the first time. The solution to this is to pre-wash with a clarifying shampoo or do an ACV rinse which will get rid of surface build-up left behind by commercial shampoos and/or products.
