Natural Healthy Shine. Shampoo in a long-lasting solid bar form
This nourishing shampoo bar is compact, long-lasting, and uses caster oil for a creamy and deeply conditioning lather that cleans and cares for your locks and scalp. Relaxing lavender and rose geranium essential oils add to the pleasure.
We make our Lavender Geranium Shampoo bar with castor oil because it’s been used for centuries as a natural conditioner and scalp treatment. To make it even better, we add coconut and olive oils for the rich, nourishing and moisturising qualities they bring to the party. Last but not least, essential oils of lavender and rose geranium help reduce stress and boost antibacterial performance, making this product a true all-rounder. Oh, and did we mention that it’s long-lasting and conveniently compact, or how it promotes healthy hair growth as well as taming the wild stuff that’s already there? Yes, all that too.
Each Lavender & Geranium Shampoo bar is handmade with coconut oil, castor oil, olive oil, lavender & geranium essential oils.
You won’t find even the smallest smidgen of palm oil, parabens, sulphates, triclosan or phthalates in any of our soaps; all we add is a feel-good factor.

Ok, so you love the thought of using a more caring shampoo that’s completely natural, but you’re worried about making the switch from your usual chemical goo. Don’t be. It might take a few washes to make the transition – or ‘purge’ as it’s sometimes called – but it’s easy enough if you follow our simple tips.
At first, your scalp might become slightly oily or dry, or flip between the two. It might feel frizzy or waxy too, like there’s a bit of residue left in it. Don’t panic – this is normal, and it’s just your hair’s way of adjusting because your scalp needs time to rebalance its natural oil production. This stage usually lasts around one week, depending on just how much damage using chemical shampoos has done. Stick with it!
Once your hair has adjusted it will feel softer, cleaner and much more manageable, and that’s because natural shampoo bars clean and condition your hair without stripping it of its natural sebum. Any dandruff might disappear too, because your scalp isn’t being dried out and your skin isn’t reacting to those nasty chemicals bottled shampoos are full of.
Just run the shampoo bar over your head in one direction, from front to back. This will help you to avoid creating any pesky knots. Once you’ve a good amount of shampoo on your head, massage it into your scalp using your fingers. Now rinse your hair with water until every drop of shampoo is out. That’s it – you’re done.
NOTE: This particular bar (along with Friendly Soaps other Shampoo formulated bars) is not suitable for use with or in hard water.
