Shampoo Bar 150gm ~ Lemon Myrtle + Australian Green Clay
A shampoo bar designed for dreadlocks with a beautiful citrus scent and deep cleansing ability of Lemon Myrtle.
Our organic shampoo bars are hand crafted in small batches with an emphasis on the highest quality ingredients and essential oils. It is part science and part artistry with each batch being carefully blended followed by a 4 week curing process. They are the most eco friendly option when it comes to shampoo as we use no plastic in the packaging. Without plastic wrap though they can sweat in high humidity - Please know that this is completely normal and doesn't effect the performance of the shampoo.
The shampoo bar deeply cleans and creates an environment which allows healthy dreadlocks to lock and mature. Lemon Myrtle is native to Queensland, Australia and research shows that it's anti fungal and anti bacterial benefits surpass that of the better known Tea Tree. It has a beautiful fresh, zingy, lemony scent. Australian Green Clay provides the earthy green tone and has the ability to absorb excess oil and build up.
DIRECTIONS: Shampoo dreadlocks as often as desired and ensure you rinse thoroughly. Ensure dreadlocks are dried in full before tieing them up. For the longevity of your shampoo bar, it is very important that the bar be allowed to dry between showers. It is worthwhile investing in a good quality soap bar holder.
If your dreads are new or have become loose or messy, then it is recommended that the Dread Empire Accelerator is applied after shampooing. Once dreadlocks are dry, palm rolling is a great way to separate and shape dreadlocks. If you feel they are in need of a tidy up, you may wish to also perform maintenance on an occasional basis using a Dreading Crochet Hook, Tightening Gel and Dread Dust can also be used to tame loose, frizzy hair and greatly assist in achieving neat, well groomed dreadlocks.
A note on hard water ~ if you have hard water (water which has a high mineral content), some of our clients prefer to use our 'Bottle in a Bar' shampoo bar as an alternative to this bar. Bottle in a Bar mirrors the ingredients found in liquid shampoo and cleanses more effectively when shampooing with hard water in comparison to our traditional cold pressed bars.

INGREDIENTS: Saponified oil of Coconut, Sunflower and Castor Bean, Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil, Australian Green Clay.
A note regarding hard water ~ Solid shampoo bars perform best in soft water. The minerals in highly mineralised (hard) water interact with the Shampoo and may leave the hair feeling straw like. In dreadlocks, this can actually be advantageous as it can accelerate the locking and maturing process. However, if you wish to alleviate this, following up your shampoo with a diluted rinse of Apple Cider Vinegar can help or alternatively, some of our clients with hard water prefer the Dread Empire liquid shampoo range which performs very well in hard water.
