The Beauty and the Bees Shampoo Bars are specially formulated with additional ingredients like castor oil that are especially good for different hair types and give the Shampoo Bars a slightly softer texture and a freer flowing bubbly lather which penetrates the mass of hair effectively.
Castor oil (Ricinus communis) is extracted from the seeds of the castor bean plant. As a humectant, castor oil attracts and assists in the retention of moisture in skin and hair. High amounts of ricin oleic acid (an unsaturated omega-9 fatty acid) in the castor oil stimulate and increase the growth of the hair, prevent and/or reduce breakage and conditioning and moisturising both the scalp and the hair. In our Shampoo Bars it also contributes to the rich frothy lather that is preferred when shampooing.
Coconut oil assists in gently cleansing the scalp and hair because it has good surfactant properties. It is rich in lauric acid and can decrease protein loss producing healthier hair and increased growth.
Like our Soap Bars, the Shampoo Bars are 100% natural but the ingredients have been chosen to be more suited to specific skin and hair types and for their cleansing, nourishing and moisturising properties. The amount of extra oil in the Shampoo Bars varies depending on whether it has been formulated for dry, normal or oily hair. Please use our “Help Me Choose a Shampoo” guide to assist you in finding the best option for your individual requirements. Or we strongly recommend you purchase one of our Natural SHAMPOO Six Pack Sampler or a Healthy Hair Starter Pack which includes the shampoo, conditioner and rinse and experiment to find out which product(s) will give you FABULOUS results.
