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. Most of the time I skip the tips of my hair since they are the most fragile and get the least moisture since it is so far away from the oils on my scalp.
Thick hair may need a little more soap rubbed than you think it does for it to thoroughly clean, lather, and rinse out well. So feel free to rub on more.
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 to the tips.
You might need to add a few more sprinkles of water at this time if you aren’t getting enough fluffy lather, or you need to brush more soap onto your hair.
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 your hair correctly.
You should have a nice, big foamy and fluffy lather after a minute or two of lathering with no sticky soap residue.
You will get faster and better with practice. Your hair also may need to adjust to a new shampoo bar. So feel free to wash twice in a row during your first wash.
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 others, 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.
