How the heck do I use natural products?
A whopping 60% of what you apply to your skin gets absorbed directly into your bloodstream. Instead of saturating your body with toxins and chemicals, stay vigilant by using products that are seriously beneficial to your health. We believe that you shouldn't have to have a degree in chemistry to understand ingredient labels these days. Grooming products should be safe, have easily identifiable ingredients and perform to a high standard. We have sourced the best natural ingredients to wild craft our products. And wee have put them to the test on ourselves and our friends and only when we know we have perfected them do we launch them onto the market. We would never sell anything that we wouldn't use ourselves and we are very fussy customers! That's why we strive to make the best products possible - No Parabens - No Chemicals - No Bullshit Artificial Scents. Here we answer some common questions about how to use natural products.
Shampoo bars are an all natural conditioning shampoo in a solid bar form. Shampoo bars are not a new idea, they were commonly used before liquid detergent shampoos and conditions were invented in the 1940's.
Although the process for making a shampoo bar is the same as making soap, our shampoo bar "recipes" are specially formulated with natural plant oils, butters, botanicals and essential oils that nourish your hair and scalp.
1 - Use The Bar Directly On Your Hair
- Begin by wetting your hair thoroughly.
- Gently rub the shampoo bar directly onto your hair from scalp to ends in a combing motion.
- Cover each section of your hair. Gently massage scalp and hair, adding more water as needed, until a good lather forms.
- To prevent tangles, be sure to always work from the top down, don't pile your hair on your head and use your fingers to untangle hair.
- With this method, it is very important that you really build up a good lather on your head so there are no patches of soap left on your hair.
- Rinse, rinse, rinse!
- Repeat if you have very oily hair.
2 - Create The Lather in Your Hands
- Begin with thoroughly wet hair.
- Rub the wet shampoo bar between your wet hands to create a nice lather.
- Gently massage it into the scalp and and finger through the shampoo along the length of the hair
- Work up a good lather
- Rinse, rinse, rinse!
- Repeat if you have oily hair
While some people are able to switch right over to a natural deodorant with no issues, most will experience a transition period. Transitioning to a natural deodorant will be much more pleasant for you (and your loved ones) while the weather is cooler. Obviously, the less opportunity for bacteria to grow, the better, as your underarms are one of the warmer and more humid areas of your body. Because of the build-up of aluminium in your sweat glands, it will be a little harder for your body to excrete its natural biological waste. “Detoxing” your pits will make for a smoother transition. The best way to transition is to not apply any deodorant/antiperspirant for at least a week before switching to a natural deodorant. During this time, use our detox cleansing grains (yes, on your pits!) and/or True Grit Soap - the activated charcoal and natural clays in these products will help pull those toxins from your body. By doing this first, you will have an easier time adjusting. Modifying your diet can help ease the transition as well. An enriched and whole-food diet will make a big difference in your body odour - lots of leafy green vegetables, whole grains, fresh fruits, raw nuts, and plenty of water. Be sure to avoid red meat and fried/spicy foods. Remember perspiration is a normal biological function that acts to cool the body down and excrete biological waste. So you don't want to be using anything that stops this bodily function.
