Nettle & Birch, together with Rhassoul & Calendula are mainly designed as hair soaps (sometimes the words shampoo cakes or shampoo bars are used, but we like the word hair soap as the other words can easily be mixed with a regular shampoo in solid form, such as Grön Lycka's solid shampoo. The soaps also function as deep cleansing body soaps but are not recommended for you with very sensitive skin, which should rather choose a soap to the left in our soap guide.
We recommend these especially to those who find that other hair soaps weigh down their hair. They are also good organic soaps to start with when you want to reduce the chemicals in your everyday life.
When washing hair, start by soaking the soap and working up a lather in your hands. Massage the soap into the wet scalp, work up a copious lather and massage thoroughly. Then rinse out thoroughly. Wash your hair twice. Avoid contact with eyes. Finish with an acid rinse and cold rinse. If you easily get greasy hair, you can alternate washing with rhassoul clay from time to time.
The soaps are best cared for if they are allowed to hang or lie airy, eg on a soap hanger, on a loofah pillow, or on a specially designed ceramic soap dish. Or choose a soap on the rope and hang it on a appropriate hook. It can also be good to switch between two soaps, so that they can dry up between the uses and last longer!
