I love shampoo bars as they are eco-friendly and a great way to reduce single use plastic. The packaging is great and makes the perfect gift. So far I’ve tried out the Jojoba & Peppermint and the Coconut & Argan oil.
For best results, always wet hair and bar first, then rub the bar directly onto your hair until you get the level of lather you want. For long hair bring the rest of your hair up to the top of your head and lather all together. Scrub hair and scalp thoroughly and immediately rinse.
It creates a creamy lather and cleans the scalp and hair without stripping it’s natural oils. It rinses out well. An ACV (apple cider vinegar) wash can be used after shampooing with the bar if you feel a need for it. Mix about a tablespoon of ACV with about a cup of warm water. I live in a hard water area so I follow up with this step.
My hair feels so clean, soft and shiny. Definitely worth trying these out!
Ooh! – Oils of Heaven Organic Jojoba Restoring Face Oil 30ml
The latest from Ooh! Golden Jojoba is a unique oil as it closely mimics the skin’s own sebum. As such, it helps prevent clogged pores, making it suitable for acne-prone or oily skin types. Great to stimulate the scalp too!
100% Simmondsia chinensis seed oil.
Another great addition from Ooh! They produce quality oils that are 100% pure, organic, cold-pressed and unrefined.
I love the versatility of Jojoba oil. It has so many benefits and can be used from head to toe. It is loaded with antioxidants, such as vitamins A and E, and omega-6 fatty acids, which are essential components of the skin’s barrier.
Ways I use it:
- To remove makeup – massage a few drops into the skin for about a minute and remove with a warm face towel or muslin cloth.
- Face moisturiser – the consistency is lightweight and non-greasy and it absorbs quickly making it great for soothing and moisturising the skin. I apply to damp skin to hydrate and seal in moisture. I also mix it with a face moisturiser to boost hydration. It is also great for acne-prone skin as it has antimicrobial properties and because it mimics sebum it helps to rebalance oil production.
- Hair – jojoba oil is great for replenishing moisture, softening the hair, adding shine and reducing frizz. I massage a few drops to my scalp to treat dry scalp and get rid of dandruff. I add a few drops to my conditioner to increase moisture. To finish off I apply a few drops to my ends before styling.
- Lip Balm: apply one to two drops of jojoba oil to my lips to prevent chapped lips.
