4. if there is not enough foam, rinse and repeat

pro tip

residue is the main reason for the transition phase

natural soap is gentle, therefore it will take a while until all silicones, foaming and glossing agents, waxes and petroleum based residue of your previous shampoos and hair care products are washed out from your hair

all this has to be removed from your hair before hair soap can work it’s magic

the key is the right washing technique and patience with your own body! your long hair gets tangled when using hair soap? tip: if you have long hair, brush it before showering and maybe even a second time in the shower while the soap is in your hair

apple cider vinegar rinse for hair: our easy recipe

  • all you need for a sour wash is 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and ½ liter of water (50 cl)
  • if you have long hair simply use double the vinegar and 1 liter of water
  • pour the acid wash over your hair and do not wash it out to get the best results. the smell of vinegar will vanish once your hair is dry
  • how often should you do the acid rinse? you can do it after every hair wash or whenever needed
  • alternative: acid rinse with lemon. replace the apple cider vinegar with lemon juice, this also works. however, this does not have all the care benefits the vinegar rinse has

your feedback to this hair soap tutorial

always massage in the soap foam for at least 30 seconds. that was a real realisation for me. before that, my hair was always sticky and greasy
jorina
the tip with the vinegar helped so that i can now easily brush through wet hair. after the second wash, my hair is no longer greasy and i have great volume. i haven't had such beautiful hair in years!
rosemarie
after small initial difficulties (the changeover phase as described by you), i am completely thrilled. my long hair looks healthy and good, feels wonderful and doesn't get greasy so quickly. nothing else will touch my hair and skin in the future!
johanna
the beginning with hair soap was hard for me. i didn't know if it was because of the change and/or the washing technique. now i know: it was because of the washing technique. at times i wanted to give up. but i didn't. the desire to free myself from the beliefs of the cosmetics industry was too great. and this freedom feels wonderful.
