Instructions for use: Comb or brush hair before shampooing to loosen residue, dry skin and dirt, especially if you use styling agents. Rub soap to generate a rich lather, or rub directly on hair. Pay particular attention to scalp and back of head when working lather into hair and be sure to generate a generous amount of lather. Like conventional foaming agents, soapnuts lather more on a second application as hair is cleaner; a second application may be necessary if living in a hard water area, if you have very long hair, or an oil-prone scalp. If you feel a residue on your hair after washing, you would benefit from using apple cider vinegar (ACV) as a clarifying rinse to ensure that all dirt and soap residue is removed. If you regularly use styling agents or have an oil-prone scalp, it can be helpful to use ACV as a rinse prior to washing hair. Dilute the ACV with two parts of water for every part of ACV. Keep the soap bar out of reach of running water when in use, and dry between uses to prolong its life.
Suitable for vegans.
