When making the switch to natural haircare you might experience a period of an oily, dense or waxy feeling. We, natural fellows, refer to it as the transition phase. It can be quite confronting and make your hair feel unwashed. It's completely normal and it is just a sign of product buildup on your scalp. By doing an acid rinse you will help to restore the pH balance on your scalp and remove prior product buildup, thus helping to transition quicker. It will leave your hair silky smooth and tangle free, it's even so good that you mightn't even require a conditioner. Acid rinses are also a must-do for those of us living with hard water (more alkaline) as they're able to balance the pH by dissolving the magnesium and calcium that binds to your hair from the water.
We love this question because the simple answer is no. But we want to talk to you about why and what makes Solibar so different.
The biggest difference between Solibar and other shampoo options is the lack of sulphates or parabens. Without sulphates, there is going to be no stripping of your natural sebum. Traditional shampoo is designed to strip your hair of moisture, dirt and oil and hence requiring a conditioner to return the moisture post-shampoo.
Instead of being stripped back by sulphates and left to rebuild natural oils after each wash, your hair's natural oils will do the job they're intended to do by nature - to nourish and protect your scalp. Our Solibars just give you a little extra of the good stuff like olive, castor and coconut oil to help to enhance on the natural oils found at your roots.
And now you're going natural, your hair is detoxing and you're feeling different. The good news is, it's completely normal and it will be resolve. But do not give in. If you do you will have to restart the process all over again. Stay strong. Anything that takes time is worth it, we promise.
