These Bottle-Free Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner Bars provide a salon quality experience from root to tip. With pure essential oils and bio-based ingredients that perfectly balance the PH in your hair, we can assure you—this is NOT soap. At first, it may not feel as though product is transferring. This is due to the fact that these bars are highly concentrated. There may be an adjustment period as you get used to this new process, as it does take a bit of time (and a little water) to activate the product.
