    Last time I talked about the reasons why switch to shampoo bars. Click here. Today, I’ll be sharing some tips and tricks for you!  Create The Lather in Your Hands. Use your fingers like a comb and smooth the lather along your hair.  Don’t let your shampoo bar sit in a puddle of water. You must store it on a well-drained soap dish or a container. Allow soap plenty of fresh air to dry between uses. I don’t store mine inside my bathroom as I noticed it’s melting even if it is well-drained when inside the bathroom due to moisture.

They are package free. One of the main reason why I switch to shampoo bars is because  they are much better for the environment than their bottled counterparts. I almost…
