- Short hair - soak the shampoo bar and then wash directly with the bar.
- Long hair - we foam the shampoo bar in our hands and then apply the foam directly to the hair. Thanks to this method, the hair will not be tangled.
It's important to wash your scalp, not just the hair.
After washing the hair with the shampoo bar, it is not necessary to use an acidifying (vinegar) rinse, as is often the case when using hair soap.
