Friendly Soap Shampoo Bar - Lavender & Tea Tree
Castor oil has been used as a natural conditioner and scalp treatment for centuries. Here it’s been added to coconut and olive oil, giving this 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.
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, preservatives or sulphates in any of these soaps. The plastic-free boxes are recycled and recyclable, and Friendly are also registered with The Vegan Society and Cruelty-Free International. They have even earned a ‘Best’ rating with Ethical Consumer, so you can enjoy a spotlessly clean conscience.

THESE THINGS MAY AFFECT THE PERFORMANCE OF NATURAL SHAMPOO
Our natural shampoo bars are not formulated for coloured hair so some may experience fading.
Many treatments and dyes contain harsh chemicals that can strip the hair of natural oils. This may reset the purging process.
Some areas of the UK have ‘hard water’ this can effect the length of the transition period and performance of our natural shampoo.
As with most natural swaps, It might take a few washes to make the transition – or ‘purge’ as it’s sometimes called – but please persevere!
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. 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.
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.
Washing your hair
Just run the shampoo bar over your head in one direction, from front to back. This will help you to avoid creating any 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. Follow up with a conditioner bar if you choose.
