It’s time we got down and dirty to chat about Alkanet Root. It’s an incredible super ingredient that doesn’t get enough love. So we thought it was the perfect time to shed some light on this dark bark.
Firstly because they’re made with natural ingredients. And we mean natural. In our case we use all-natural oils like olive, castor and coconut oil, then we add the good stuff like French clays and essential oils. Not the quasi-natural ‘based on plant’ ingredients. There’s also no palm oil or palm oil derivatives in our bars.
The 'transition phase' is something unique to natural haircare in the sense that it's often not talked about. And that doesn't mean it doesn't exist, it just means that the liquid shampoo market has done a lot ignore the fact that there are better options for haircare.
Over the past year, as we've been building our brand and learning about making the switch to natural haircare - we've been asking for feedback on our bars. This is absolutely crucial for us, because whilst we know that we have an amazing natural alternative shampoo, we also know that making the switch is not always quick and easy for some as it is for others.
I found that this shampoo stripped my hair to not being able to move it on my scalp, so for me disappointing,
I gave it to my neighbour who has the same white hair, she loves it and her hair looks lovely after being washed
Some years ago I watched with alarm as my hair thinned and fell out, leaving an unsightly bald patch on my crown. My research convinced me I had female hereditary baldness and very little could be done. I was wrong. Once I began washing my hair with Solibar exclusively my hair began to thicken and grow back. After about a year I had full coverage and my hair was quite thick. The bald patch was gone, Now, hairdressers often comment on the quality of my hair, given my age (I’m 71). Thank you Solibar.
I first started using Solibar to cut down on plastics and animal products. I don’t use anything else now and was lucky enough to not go through a transitional process. I used to use a lot of conditioner and now I barely need it. The bars last such a long time too so they are very economical. Plus they smell great.
