How To Use Our Shampoo, Body, & Shaving Bars
SHAMPOO: Prewet your bar by running water over it for a second or two, then put it near your bath to soften up a little while you undress and get ready for washing.
After getting your body and hair wet, brush your prewetted bar directly onto your completely wet hair and scalp until enough amount remains to thoroughly lather in the hair. This amount may differ from person to person depending upon hair type, length, and level of greasiness.
If you have long hair, it is best to brush bar from scalp to tip as to not create tangles. If you have really short hair, you may use circular scrubbing motions on hair and head for a quicker lather.
Try not to get more water in your hair during this time as it will wash the soap out before you have a chance to lather, it is best to turn off your showerhead (also saving water) or stand away from the spray.
Use the soap residue brushed on hair to lather into hair from scalp to tips, mainly focusing on the scalp first, then working your way down too the tips. Take your time for a thorough lathering massage as this helps to stimulate the scalp and also provide a nice cleanse.
Make sure to lather up all soap remnants, or else your hair could remain stiff and sticky after it dries, which is not normal and means that you did not wash correctly. You should have a nice big foamy and fluffy lather after a minute or 2 of lathering with no sticky soap residue.
You will get faster and better with practice.
Rinse well with clean water.
Repeat if needed for dirty or extra oily hair, especially if you have skipped a couple of washes.
I only use my shampoo bars about once every other day or less to not strip the hair’s natural oils too much. For those with specific hair or skin conditions, more or less often usage may be best for them.

SHAVING: Rub bar along area of skin that you want to shave.
Make sure it leaves a thin and slick soapy film on the skin.
You do not need to lather. Although you may if you wish with a shaving brush. We recommend a badger hair brush for comfort and quality.
Shave the soapy film off along with your hair stubs as you run the razor along your skin.
Rinse and then wash again to replenish moisture. It also helps to use one of our lotion sticks after bathing to prevent dry skin or irritation.
BODY: Use as a normal body soap bar. Wet skin area, lather onto skin well, and rinse as usual.
