How To Use Our Conditioner Bars
INTRODUCTION: Our conditioner bars help reduce the waste of water transport, plastic containers, and dispensers that are so often chosen for convenience with liquid conditioners and shampoos. It often takes more time and effort to use natural conditioner bars, but it’s well worth it in the end. Not only do you end up with clean and naturally nourished hair, you also end up with a cleaner environment!
We HIGHLY recommend our conditioner bars to pair with our shampoo bars to be used right after washing. Our new and improved formula is very light and hard to over-apply! You can use it everywhere: hair, scalp, skin, and it leaves everything feeling silky smooth and my hair very shiny and manageable! This is our alternative replacement for a vinegar rinse or oil treatment.
1. BRUSH the conditioner bar onto your freshly washed, rinsed and dripping wet hair where you would like a conditioning, softening, detangling, and moisturizing effect. Focus on dry spots, especially the ends of your hair.
Apply generously and take your time. This is not like liquid conditioner to just slap it on and go. Bars must be worked with in the water for optimal effect. You may also use it on your skin as a shower/bathing lotion too!
2. COMB the conditioner residue left in your hair with fingers or a comb to make sure the conditioner is spread evenly and thoroughly. You may need to add a little more water to comb it and spread it around smoothly.
3. Let the conditioner bar SET in your hair while you wash your body/shave/etc. – 5 minutes or more being ideal.
4. RINSE thoroughly OR LEAVE it in! For a natural curling effect after you get out of the shower/bath: brush hair while still damp – *scrunch* – then let air-dry! How simple is that? 🙂
Using a leave-in conditioner can be very helpful with certain hair textures, especially with curly or frizzy hair. If used this way, many of our customers have found they can eliminate all sorts of other products they normally would use (such as gels, hairspray, curling, etc.)
If you need to apply more after the shower/bath application, simply wet the bar and rub it in your hands. Then use what is on the hands to comb through the hair, especially focusing on the ends.
Leftover Bits and Pieces
With leftover bits and pieces, you have a few options for using up the remainder of the product!
- Dissolving: You can soak the bits in warm water overnight to help soften and dissolve them, then use the liquid as you would for conditioner. Sometimes a blender works well for this!
- Heating: Heating the pieces slowly and carefully with a blow dryer – or for a short time on low level in the microwave – will turn the pieces into a liquid, which will harden again when cooled. Ut helps to have a container that you can melt them in and pop them back out again.
- Using: Patiently leave the pieces next to the sink or shower in a container to rub in wet hands and apply to hair until nothing left of the bar pieces remain!

Or feel free to contact us at any time to help troubleshoot your problems!! We often help struggling customers figure out what to do when they are not used to using conditioner bars.
Do not leave in water, or let water rest on it as they will dissolve or become very soft and goopy. Preferably, they should be stored in an area with good air flow and minimal surface contact.
We recommend our soap dishes for storing your conditioner bar. You can find them here, https://perma-earth.com/product/soap-dish/
Do They Expire?
We recommend using your conditioner bar within a year for best results, we aren’t sure if/when conditioner bars will go bad. If the oils/fats inside start to go rancid it could smell “off” or develop rusty orange spots, but we have yet to actually see this happen.
Store in a dry, safe place our of direct sunlight to prevent mold growth or faster deterioration.
