Natural Healthy Shine. Shampoo in a long-lasting solid bar form
The castor oil in this nourishing shampoo bar produces a gorgeous creamy lather that conditions and cares for your hair more deeply. Lavender and tea tree essential oils help it refresh as well as it cleanses, all packed into a conveniently small bar that lasts longer than you’d think.
Castor oil has been used as a natural conditioner and scalp treatment for centuries, so we couldn’t wait to create a shampoo bar with it. Here we’ve added it to coconut and olive oil, giving our lavender and tea tree shampoo bar extra richness and a wonderful ability to moisturise. Meanwhile, the bar’s essential oils of lavender and tea tree do a great job of promoting healthy hair growth and providing antibacterial properties too. All in all, not a bad CV for a bar that’s small enough for travelling with but powerful enough to outlast three bottles of shampoo.
Each lavender tea tree shampoo bar is handmade with Castor Oil, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Lavender and Tea Tree 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.
