I just got home from my first hair appointment since I started using a shampoo bar three and a half weeks ago. My hairdresser was impressed! She says my hair feels silky all the way to the ends, like I’ve had a hot oil treatment. (Except for one section on the left side of my head – apparently I’m still not doing a completely thorough job!) When she started cutting, she showed me that she only had to cut off half the amount she normally cuts, so my ends aren’t splitting as much. She didn’t think it had grown any faster, but it is definitely healthier! I asked her if she noticed extra breakage, and she didn’t – so that’s good too!
One of my blog readers sent me her shampoo bar recipe as well as a bar of the actual soap to try. Let me tell you, it is amazing! I could tell an immediate difference in the softness of my hair after using it. Much better than the shampoo bar I started with. I made up a hot-processed version of her bar, and it’s really good too, but not as good as her cold-processed bar. So guess what I’ll be doing soon!
And here’s the best news of all: she gave me permission to share the recipe with all of you! So watch for it tomorrow! I know you’ll love it!
